Basking in the Sunshine

We have been in sunny LA for 2 weeks. The fruit babies made the trip like champs. Three days from western NY to Phoenix, a day of rest with the in-laws, then one day to LA. The Snake is back with us and we are a family.

Taking care of two babies is kicking my ass. It would be managable, if not for the monitors (apnea, bradycardia). It would be managable in a home that is established, not an apartment with crap strewn everywhere. It would be managable with a well stocked kitchen. It would be managable with no other children (who need to be walked to school daily).

But somehow, we are managing. It's not pretty, but we are getting by.

I'm likely to start up a new blog when I can finally tread water. This space will still exist, but I want something that I can share with family, and this is not the place. Hope to see you there!

Congrats on making it here!

Oh, Amy, congrats on all your forward progress.

Hope to keep seeing you around.

Smooch the fruit for me.

Yep- it sure is hard work. I don't have any of the extra stuff and it still kicks my butt.

I actually cried with fatigue through last night's 2am feed..

Glad to hear you are once again a family!

I look forward to seeing your new blog.

I am SO HAPPY to hear that your little ones and you made the trip like champs. I've been checking in frequently hoping to hear exactly that. :-)

Best of luck as you get settled in. You've had so much going on in the past...well, the past year at least! I hope that it starts to settle down for you. And you're my hero to taking it all in stride.

Good to hear. Be well.

Welcome to the west, Waiting Amy and the Fruit Babies.

I admire your fortitude. Crossing the country with 2 preemies and then settling into a new life. I can only imagine!

Here's to taking it a day (an hour?) at a time and the ste-by-step forward progress to get your life settled. Actually, will it ever really be settled with 3 under the age of 5? :)

Please let us know when you establish a new blog as I would love to keep touch with your goings on.
