More pics

Life is so busy. Not just with the little ones, but it is harvest season. I canned 3 bushels of peaches when Abby was 2 weeks old. This week we are butchering the 30 chickens my MIL raises for us. Today I also received word of the 3 bushels of pears I ordered. Yesterday, I canned 28 pints of beets. I am sad to say that I am looking forward to winter so I can slow down.

I did set up a Flickr account. You can see some more pics of Abby and the family here. (I hope that is the right link.) I will need some time to figure out how to use Flickr and organize better.

Abby is starting to sleep through the night better. She has only been getting up once and pulling 5-6 hours shift overnight. Wednsday she actually slept straight through. From 9pm-7:30am!!! At 1 month old. And she has a long day nap that overlaps Mark's nap, so I have some time to myself each day. I usually use it to catch up on work. There seems to be no lack of things that need-to-be-done-today.

Yay for photos and flickr!! :) If you need any flickr tips, just let me know.

Wow, I don't know how you manage it all, and hope you're getting enough time and rest to heal. So glad Abby is acommodating with the sleep, though. That's amazing!

Beautiful baby girl! Glad to hear she is doing so well sleeping, that is a blessing for sure! Don't worry about getting too much done now, get some rest during that nap, I would at least. Anxious to read more about your life with two little ones. I am 11 wks. pregnant and I have a one year old, they will be 20 mos. apart. Fun stuff!

Congratulations! She's beautiful!

Good luck with all the harvesting stuff. That's where I pull out my "city" card and let the hubs and his mom take care of it all. I just can't do the whole chicken thing.

Awww... you have a beautiful family!
And oh my! busy girl you are. I admire you, I don't know how you can do it with a toddler & an a new born. Good for you but don't overwork yourself.
