I did it!!!

I made it through my first day with John at work.  Of course, my mom was here for a few hours and My Aunt Donna and cousins Mandy and Maggie were here for a while too.  So, I had plenty of help.  Today will be a different story.  John left early this morning, and so far, I've been flying solo.  Everything is going well so far!  My mom is going to come by for a couple of hours this afternoon so I can have time to shower and work out.  Since the birth went so well, my doc told me i could begin exercising as soon as I feel up to it.  Yesterday was my first time on the eliptical machine.  I did a mile and a half and that was all I could handle.  Our bedroom serves many purposes right now.  It's mine and John's sleeping quarters/relaxing ground, my gym, and Noah's room for another month or so.  
Speaking of Noah, he is doing grrreeeaaat!  He eats like a champ, sleeps like a champ, and poops like the champ of all champs.  Last night he only woke up once to eat and went right back to sleep.  If he sticks to this, it means every other night John and I will have a normal full nights rest. (we will alternate feeding nights.)  I have the best husband who is also the best daddy.  He is such great help.  I am so thankful that the Lord blessed me and our family with him.  We love him so much.  Since Noah has been born, my heart has been so full of gratefulness to God for my sweet boys and wonderful husband.  So much so that it brings me to tears....good ones!  Life is good and full of blessings.  Being a mom to two is hard and trying, but I am loving every minute of it so far.  My fears and anxieties from two weeks ago, before Noah was here, are gone.  I can do it.  Even when its hard, I can do it, because I love my children that much.  Even when I've been pooped on, vomited on, peed on, hair pulled, ignored when I say no, etc.  (4 of those 5 have happened today all ready :)  )  Its kind of crazy to say, but I think I'm a better mom to 2 than I was to 1.  I have no choice but to do my best as a mommy when there is more to do, take care of, etc.  No time to waste.  Noah has made me better already.  Thank you, Jesus, for him.
