"You're Wearing Jeans!"

Charlie was up a lot last night and basically stayed up from 4 a.m. on, so I was feeling pretty wiped out from the long night. I decided that I had to get out of the house to stay sane, so we ventured to Target. It was a great first outing for the three of us - Charlie slept in his car seat the whole time and Eli was so happy and well behaved. This afternoon was great - Eli took a really long nap and I even got Charlie to fall asleep at the same time - I napped for a whopping three hours and woke up feeling somewhat human again.

It was pretty funny that one of the first things Ben said to me tonight when he came home from work was, "You're wearing jeans!" since I haven't worn anything remotely cute in the last two weeks. Eli was in the kitchen with us and got excited with him and kept repeating, "Jeans!" I promise I'm not always a bum... :)

Congrats on your first outing! I'm glad you got a good nap in! It's amazing how much you realize you need sleep when you aren't getting it :-). Congrats on wearing jeans too...I'm impressed :-)!

Little teeny weeny Charlie is so adorable! I told you that you looked great when I ran into you! You would of never guessed you had been up all night. I can't believe Eli napped for 3 hrs. Amazing!
BTW...wearing jeans after having a baby is a huge accomplishment. :)

I'm glad you got a nap in. And I know the adjustment to two kids can be a little overwhelming, but it continues to get better. Sometimes just getting out of the house for a little while (if the weather permits) helps a lot for me. Hang in there! Your boys are darling, and it will be so fun to see pics of Charlie in a few weeks. They grow so fast!
