That is the only word that can describe how I am feeling right now. I am still figuring out this whole mom thing and we are moving at the end of the month. Oh, and little E's baptism is 2 weeks after we move. Why did I think doing all this at the same time was a good idea?

Baby E is about 6 weeks old and really doing well. Most days I almost feel like I know what I am doing. She is eating well, gaining weight like she should and sleeping amazingly well at night. Naps are still pretty rare, but we are working on it. On days when she gets enough sleep, she is a really happy baby.

Sweet baby smiles.

As far as the move goes, the movers are hired. Other than that, our house is a complete disaster and we don't have a ton packed. Before she came I figured I would be able to pack when the baby napped. The flaw in that plan is that baby E doesn't really Oops.

Additionally, we have a list of about a hundred things to do to the new house to help make it a home. I know they do not all need to be done at once, but it does need to look presentable for her baptism since we will be hosting people.

Oh yeah, and I would like to be in good enough shape to fit into my work clothes when I go back the middle of October. Right now I am back to the same weight, but nothing fits properly. Packing and lugging boxes is a workout, right?

Sorry for all the whining and I am amazed you got this far. Sometimes it helps to just put it all out there. Needless to say, the blog may be a bit neglected in the next few weeks. 

I just keep reminding myself that this is all so we can build a home for this sweet girl.

Love this little one!
