J and I are trying to step back, and not fight with him about it, and I thought this chart would help!
He's also very encouraging. "Great job coloring Hudson"
Now if we could just get him to not runaround the house, almost knocking thinks down onto the baby, that would be great!

(And yes, I will be putting this picture on display at his High School grad party)

Surprised: by how calm he is. By how little he fusses or cries. By how quickly having a newborn comes back to you. That j and I can function on so little sleep. That I'm as calm as I am. That even though J and I can function, that we haven't had too many 3am fights. How good Cole is with Huddy.
Frustrated: with cole since his listening ears have been NON EXISTENT this week. That it took my milk this long to come in and it's still only a minuscule amount. That I don't have a coffee machine. With my inability to nap. With the weather- I want to go for a walk!!!
Happy: that Cole pooped in the potty four times this week. That I'm not having any baby blues. That Hudson is pooping and no one is worried about jaundice. To have such an amazing group of friends and family- the amount of help, calls, texts, everything - it's been amazing. Happy, just happy
(FYI: I'm boycotting turning on my computer, so I'm assuming most posts will be done via my phone)

He's been sleeping it off the rest of the day, and hopefully into tonight.
A big "thank you" goes out to my mom for coming with me and for trying to keep me calm.

Hudson is awesome, though trying to keep him awake during the day (so he sleeps better at night) is tough... He's just such a cuddle monster. Some picture proof provided!

2) I think this might be my favorite pic so far. So sweet
3) Just found out that Hudson shares his BIRTHday with my friend Becky's daughter. I just got a message from her (she's currently in Germany). Congrats to Becky and Marty!

On 4/10/14, at 3:29pm, Huddy Bear (still playing around with nicknames) came barreling out at 22" long and 9lbs 6oz.
He's been a very calm kiddo (knock on wood) so far which has made our hospital stay pretty easy.
The plan is to head home Saturday afternoon - then the fact that we have two boys really kicks in.
Thank you for all the calls, texts, emails and social messages!!!

Yep, I made Homemade Granola Bars. Guess the whole nesting thing finally kicked in. These taste really similar to the Energy Balls I make... But I also did one version that had this nut/dried fruit mix in them. I like those better.
Anyways. Here's the recipe. It was the first time I ever used Coconut Oil... it's a solid so measuring it out was a little weird but it's supposed to be a good substitute for oil/butter. Oh, and I would probably cut back on the honey... you don't need a full half cup.
