Can I brag?

I assume you think I'm going to brag about this little cherub...

& how he generally wakes up only once a night
& how he only cries for food or a diapey change
& how he smiles back with his adorable dimple
(I know the experts say it's just gas, but what do they know?)

Well, you're wrong.
I'm bragging about this lady.  My mumsie.

While I've been slugging my lazy postpartum body around from bed to couch to rocking chair,
 the Miracle Worker has been doing things like this:

organizing my cupboards

organizing my drawers

baking 4 batches of cookies, 1 apple crisp, & 1 pie
(not to mention cooking dinner)

helped tat put up some shelves in the garage & organized all my laundry & cleaning supplies
(this pic is only the 1st shelf...there's now another one)

washing & folding laundry daily

organizing Tat's, mine, Avy, & Lincoln's dresser drawers & closets

making my bed & cleaning my room every day

scrubbed both my bathrooms...twice

hemmed Avy's curtains

vacuumed & wiped down all our blinds

What didn't I take pictures of?
her dusting
her vacuuming (multiple times)
her organizing my food storage in the garage
all the meals she prepared
all the playing with Avy & Lincoln

Thanks for making the last week & a half so enjoyable, Mom!
We love You!
