There is only so many days one can stay inside the house - I'm not the sit around type - and so today we took an outing to the botanical gardens. It was a beautiful and hot day. I wanted a few good pictures and Sydney Kate had her heart set on playing in the fountains. A good day had by all! But the best part of the day was when we returned home I was able to get both children to nap at the same time - and then I heard the angels singing - and for a brief minute I thought to myself having 2 isn't so bad. I'll remind myself of that at 3am tonight:)

So I figured out that I can do many things with one hand - help my 4 year old get dressed, change the channels of the tv, check my email and read current events on the internet, etc. But I haven't mastered typing with one hand. So now you have the reason there have been no posts to the blog since Eli's arrival. Plus I've really actually been down two hands - I have this strange post pregnancy rash called "PUPPS" and it is so evil! It the worst thing I've ever experienced - it itches like crazy all the time and nothing helps! I've now gone through one round of oral steriods, two tubes of steriod cream, and every "natural" remedy I can find on the internet. I usually have a brush in one hand and a baby in the other - I use the brush to scratch my skin in hopes it will help in some twisted way. Thankfully Eli has been an amazing little baby. He seems happy most of the time and laid back. I don't want to jinx myself but he has slept 4 -6 hour spans at night. So even if I'm itching like a crazy person at least I have a sweet baby boy.
