Wow! Who would've thought that this holiday season would be so hard? Baby E is now two weeks old and has her first cold, little L is having a hard time sharing mommy, so things are pretty interesting around here.
One thing that made this holiday season so hard was not having the husband home. It also didn't help hearing about other families that were able to spend the holidays with their soldiers. Don't get me wrong I am really happy for those who's soldiers came home early, but I can't help but be jealous that mine is still over there and in harms way. I feel silly being jealous of those families, but I just can't help the way I feel.
The husband is doing as well as can be expected over there. We are anxiously awaiting R&R and having him home for two whole weeks. I fear though that saying good-bye the second time is going to be harder than it was the first time.
I will be happy once this holiday season is over and life is moving on. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to handle both kids by myself once my dad leaves and my mom isn't able to be at my house all of the time. I know many people raise two kids by themselves all of the time, but I am not superwoman and I'm afraid I won't be able to handle it.
On a good note, baby E is able to hold her head up!!! She is sleeping at least 2.5-3 hours at a time, which allows me to get some sleep thankfully. I am not as exhausted this time around, which is strange because you would think I would be more tired with little L to take care of. Ah well, the things you learn you can do when you have to. :)
I hope everyone is having a great week!!!
