Aubree was 6 weeks on Tuesday. Both Sunday and Monday nights she slept a stretch of 6 hours at a time, but the past two nights have been a completely different story. Here's hoping she was doing like I said and making it easier to leave...and Tom will have her back into shape by the time I get home. :)
Here are a couple pics from last night. Her midnight bath! My very gracious mother-in-law tells me to call/text at any time. After 3 hours of non stop crying...me included!...this very sleepy mommy had to call in for help. She recommended a warm bath. We did that and another bottle, and by 1:30 Aubree finally decided to give in and go to sleep. Only to wake back up again at 3, and 4! Oh, yes, I do love my little girl dearly.
Brock's BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT! He now gives kisses to his baby sister!!! I knew we'd get there! Just 6 weeks into this. Guess he figured out she's not going anywhere. He better get used to it.

Oh, I never did get a post in about my Hurricane Ike experience. To make a long story short, Cuero was supposed to be in the path, but luckily missed us completely. Nonetheless, Cuero cancelled school for two days, and the whole town shut down/boarded up. Even after the path had indicated a shift away from the town, everyone was freaking out. Here is a picture of a house boarded up. It's a darn good thing they boarded up this house...because it would have been just terrible if any damage had been done. (sarcasm at it's greatest) I didn't get any pics of the front, but it was more boarded up, and a few windows had been boarded from the inside. On a serious note, I pray for everyone who was affected by Ike. We were spared, but everyone was not that lucky. I have lots of family in the path of Ike, and am very happy to report everyone is OK!

(And if anyone has an extra prayer lying around...one for my very fussy baby girl would be appreciated!)

This week we're hanging out at my mom's in Cuero. Tom is back in grad school two nights a week and at just three weeks into this...it's still pretty challenging on my own! Big Brother has started helping out more, however, he still will not hug or kiss her!
The visitors have begun to wind down at home. In the past three weeks, we've had someone there for all but 5 days. We've loved seeing family and I've loved the extra hands to help! Next week though it's time to establish our routine!
I'll try to get the next post out here sooner! Since I'm at my mom's right now, I'm having a hard time attaching pictures to this one. I'll try to add some soon.
Ta-ta for now! The countdown is on until someone starts crying again! ;) Seriously...never a dull moment! But I wouldn't have it any other way!
