Trying to catch up

Before Isabella came home, I was the most organized and efficient person I know. But now that's all changed.

I find myself scrambling to fit in 20 hours of work each week, taking care of a very active 10 1/2 month old, helping my sister finalize her wedding plans, plan a baptism and huge first birthday party and get sleep, clean the house, do laundry, make dinner, care for two dogs, etc. I'm making it but I have a new respect for working parents!

Since she's catching an extra nap today, I had a chance to catch up which means posting to this blog. Sorry for the delays in putting up new pictures, but they are worth the wait!

Definitely worth the wait! She's beautiful, as always! Keep up the great work... it can be stressful, I know. I'm at home and I still can barely get anything done besides taking care of everyone.

Myself and Uncle Chris will take her anytime you want. She is so stinking cute...I don't think she can get any cuter!!
Jen, You are a very strong person and you're handling everything that gets thrown at you. I appreciate everything you have been doing for me, and Chris.
If you ever need help don't hesitate to call me, you know I'll be there within 10 minutes!! I love you all so much and love that fact that you and Kevin have made me an Aunt!! ;-)

Do you work from home? I know it's crazy trying to get everything done! It's hard to juggle housework with Jakob and he doesn't even crawl yet. It's starting to get that when I need him to play by himself he begins to "fake" cry and gets agitated. Oh, the joys of motherhood--wouldn't trade them for the world :-)
If you need some help with Isabella's birthday party, let me know--parties are my specialty~
