To sleep or shower.

It is funny to realize the things that you are willing to sacrifice in order to get a few extra minutes of sleep with a newborn. I think that the most defining moment of my day today was when Molly informed me that I stunk. It was a real winning moment and one that I quickly took pity on all our weekend visitors. Thanks for putting up with my stench, friends.

Weekend visitors? Oh yea. Pictures? I promise they are coming in the next few days as my sister was AWESOME and took them so I didn't have to. Remember the whole sacrificing for sleep thing? Picture taking lost that bid.

My mom was here from Monday to Saturday of last week and I have to say that the help/mommy love was AWESOME. Our other weekend visitors included my sister/nieces, brother/girl friend, The Bakers and a few of my awesome Child Life co-workers. Between visitors, phone messages, emails and dinner drop offs from our neighbors/friends ---we feel very loved! I don't know that we will ever be able to adequately express the gratitude we feel!!

And so this next phase officially takes off tomorrow as it is my first day solo with the May brood. I might be in for a rude awakening but I am feeling ready for it... I finally did get in that shower and what a difference that makes!

Pictures from last week to come!
