I'm Back and With 2 Sweet Boys! -

I'm finally making it back to blog and Facebook land. I've been recovering from my c-section, which went well by the way, and trying to get my emotions under control. I suffered from postpartum depression after P was born and have started having it now. Luckily, I've been blessed with a wonderful and helpful husband and absolutely wonderful family who have been helping out. I know that this will pass with time but I may not be blogging as much until I get this all figured out. Having two sweet boys has been a hard transition but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually. Thank you all for your sweet comments and your prayers! Now for the pictures! They aren't in order and I'm too lazy to try and put them in order.

Sweet little E.



P looks drugged but he is just blinking. He is starting to like E more with each passing day.



Sleepy daddy with P and E. J has been wonderful and letting me sleep. Recovering from a c-section is pretty hard and I am extremely grateful for him helping out so much. He is an awesome man and I love him SO much!



Here is E in his new scrubs. My friend Jeni Brooke has started a business and blog making these scrubs and other things. I discovered it about a week before E was born. I asked if it was too late to get some and she came through! Check her site out at http://bybrookeh2h.blogspot.com/



E spit out his binky and P wanted to give it back to him. E didn't want the binky and P was pretty upset. He can stick out that lip far!



Happy momma with her babe! He is so cute!



One happy Grammy with her newest grandson.



J and E. The nurses in the nursery said he was the happiest daddy around!



Me getting ready for my c-section. Can you tell that the smile is forced? I was pretty nervous and ended up having real contractions ... the painful ones. Well, they weren't too painful yet but still!



E getting burped. I love how his cheeks look!



E's very first picture!



Relaxing at home on the first day.



So sweet and cute!



P having a hard time. He was pretty confused about having his mom flat in bed with all these cords and stuff on her. He became very attached to Grammy like Velcro.



My favorite picture! He is so handsome and bright eyed!

After I saw that picture of Ethan sleeping at home I thought, "he is so sweet and cute." I laughed when I saw the caption under the next picture...

You guys must be so exhausted. We'll have Preston come over and play as soon as Julian is over his cold. Hang in there!
