I am going to get real honest here.  I am exhausted.  Like at any given time of the day I could easily fall asleep.  It takes everything I have sometimes to not doze off while cooking, driving or even talking.  Why am I so tired?  4 kids.  That is the answer.  I never in my wildest imagination thought I would be this tired with just adding one more kid to my already busy 3.  Staying at home is way more tiring than I thought.  I give huge props to all you stay at home moms.  We just don't get enough credit.  Our job doesn't have a lunch break, it doesn't have sick leave, it doesn't have vacation days.  I let my husband sleep in both days this weekend, cuz I'm an amazing wife, but for reals last night I was so tired and than started to resent the fact that I was so cool for letting him sleep in.  Silly I know, but it is the truth.

A quick update on Lucy. Besides being the cutest baby EVER.  Here is proof:

She is pretty awesome.  After the nightmare that CHOC put us through (lost paper work, delayed therapy appointments, rude customer service) we were able to switch over to our providers rehab program.  She got evaluated and only has to have one physical therapy appointment and has to see an occupational therapist twice a week for the next couple of months.  We have only had one appointment and let me tell you she HATES it. But its for her own good.  It will get her to eat solids and help her move her mouth and tongue properly.  But I was super worn out after the appointment.  She and I looked like we had gone to battle after the 45 minute session was done.  I took her to babies r us to pick out a toy because she worked so hard.  I got myself an extra large coke to reward myself and to stay awake for the rest of the day.  I am excited though to see what therapy can do for my baby girl.

Also one more truth, all the baby toys in the world do not entertain my baby, you know what does?  Wii remotes, trash cans, the refrigerator, the dogs food and legos.  Pretty much all the things a baby should be playing with.  She has eaten a good amount of dog food though, I'm sure her therapist will be happy with that.
