... i have been loving all of this time with avery.  we've been lucky that charlie's been able to spend so much time with us even though he's working again.  since he mostly works from home even though he was back to work last week he was still around all week and this monday was actually the first day he wasn't around.

Not a fan of the cat.

...  i am amazed at how much of my time is spent just taking care of her and picking up messes that seem to follow me every room we go.  if i manage to get a load or two of laundry done and cook dinner then i consider it a very productive day.

3 weeks

...  her napping schedule has been all over the place which makes it hard to plan things.  she'll almost always sleep if she's in the car or out on a walk but i sometimes wish she would sleep more in the house so i could get things done around there.  the moby wrap has been a lifesaver for getting anything done around the house.  even if she's not sleeping in it she's pretty content in it which lets me get some things done.  if i never had to get anything done i'd be content just to watch her sleep all day long.   

...  she's been getting out of her swaddle at night between feedings and then uses her hands to smack herself in the face and wake herself up.  i'd stop swaddling her but anytime i put her down unswaddled she wakes up in about 10 minutes.  this has meant that i don't get a lot of sleep at night.

...  we've been talking lots of walks with the dogs whenever the weather is warm enough.  she loves the stroller and the dogs love walking.  
First walk. The dogs were happy.

...  i've been drinking a lot of hot chocolate.

...  i'm dreading going back to work.  i try not to think about it too much.

...  we've been reading oh, the places you'll go about 4 times a day.
