sibling love not rivalry...yet

It's been one month since Mac was born, and I must say that the girls have done really well with him. Sure we've had a few attention getting issues, like the cutting of hair (multiple times from both girls now. sigh.) But they really do love him. There hasn't been any jealousy issues, and everyone likes to help. And I'm getting used to having THREE kids. (I was at a baby shower over the weekend where I kept wanting to introduce them by saying, "And these are my 2 kids" out of habit. Three seems like and sounds like so many!) But overall we're adjusting well, hanging in there, and I'm trying to get as much sleep as possible. And I'm learning to function when I don't--hello my dear friend Diet Coke. I'd missed you for 9 months!

Anyway, that's the scoop from around here.

(And trying to end my blog with that statement makes me hear Garrison Keller's voice in my head. He signs off each Prairie Home Companion with, "And that's the news from Lake Woebegone. Where all the women are strong, the men are good looking, and the children are above average." I've been scarred for life thanks to Dad's favorite radio program.)

Sorry. Random tangents. Hearing voices in my head now. Only 4 hrs. of sleep last night.

I just wanted to let you know how much I've enjoyed looking at your lo's this morning. I too have 2 girls and now a little boy born on Wednesday. He is in nicu and I've had lots of time to browse the web while sitting in the hospital! The page of your husband kissing your baby after coming home from nicu made me tear up because that will be us in a couple of days! I can't wait to scrap some boy pages. Thx for the inspiration!
