Just the 3 of us

For us (Seth, Jericho, and I oh and Gamba too!) tomorrow will be the beginning of a wonderful adventure. We will get to see what life is going to be like just the 3 of us! You may be thinking well Jericho is already two weeks old haven't you started that adventure yet. Technically yes, but since both our families live in other states we have had family visiting for the last two weeks. It's been wonderful having our families here, my family was here last week and Seth's parents were here for a few days this week, but as wonderful as it was we are excited that it is now just the 3 of us.

I have many plans for tomorrow: there are mounds of clean clothes that need to be put up, a mound or two that still needs to be washed, baby gifts that need to be put away, clean dishes to be put up, a few dirty ones to be washed, a check book that needs to be balanced, and a house to be put back together after having visitors for 2 weeks, I also need to figure out what to do for dinner. People from our church have been bringing meals by, it's something our church does when people have babies and it's so nice, but tonight was our last night. As you can see for me real life with a baby begins tomorrow.

For those of you that read my list of things that need to be done tomorrow, especially those of you that have had babies and know what it's like, please don't freak out. It's what needs to be done not what has to be done or what is going to get done. I realize that one maybe two of the things on the list may get done and if that doesn't even happen it will be okay. I'm in no hurry. I guess the #1 thing I should have put on the list that I know will get done is to enjoy my sweet Jericho!

I hope you are having a great time settling in as a family...isn't it nice to know you can get as much done or as little done as you want...and spend as much time as you want with your baby?!!

I totally understand the feeling of wanting to see how it is on your own. I didn't feel that after I had Eve - I was just plain scared to death. But, after I had Judah I wanted, no, needed to know that I could do this two kid thing on my own. Guess what! I could and I did. It wasn't always pretty but we are all still alive and kickin'! :)

You are going to be incredible - you are simply going to be the best mother for Jericho and a wonderful wife for Seth. What an adventure it is going to be! Have fun!!
