- Today was my first completely full day on my own and I'm happy to report that everyone made it out alive. There was a point where both boys were crying but I somehow managed to laugh my way through it. I'd set one down on the floor and hold the other then switch. Mom's should really grow an extra pair of hands with each kid they have or better yet, maybe just be cloned. Two is a whole new level of craziness, but I'm sure I'll learn to manage it by the time the next one comes around (yeah, you read that right...I said next one). I look back at my life pre-Jack and wonder what the heck I was complaining about with just the one. Isn't that the way it always goes though?
- Breastfeeding really needs a whole post to itself. In fact that's what I intended to write about today, but I just don't have it in me anymore. I do have a quick call for help though...Jackson is spitting up after 95% of his feedings and is terribly gassy. He cries for a good half hour or more after every feeding as well and I can't help but think it has something to do with my diet although I don't know what. I'm currently trying to cut out dairy to see if that helps (apparently according to Google it will take 2-3 weeks to find out), but I'd love to know if any of you had suggestions out there? Help. Seriously...suggest away.
- Jackson has seriously been under documented at this point. I'm fairly sure I have captured every single moment Ethan has ever had until this point. I probably took over 300 pictures of Ethan his first month. This kid is probably lucky to have 75. Jackson...I'm sorry. I will try to do better!
- Claire Danes and her post baby body made me feel like a total pig last night. She is 3.5 weeks postpartum (a whole .5 weeks less than me) and looked completely back to normal. Although I feel like I've done better this time around, I am very, very far from normal at this point. Stars really should share their secrets. It's unfair to the rest of us. Ugh, I am ready to kick this baby belly to the curb!

Until My Brain Begins to Operate Again..
Well last week I had high hopes of getting back on the blogging bandwagon, but...life is freaking crazy. I've written numerous posts in my head that will surely never see the light of day. And now, when I've found a smidgen of a second to actually sit down at the computer and type something out, all I'm finding in my head are fragmented tid bits. So I'll give you an update of sorts...bullet style.
