So I really miss our big windows in the old apartment. Sigh. Such beautiful light at pretty much all times of the day. Our apartment here is on the bottom level, with other apartment buildings and big trees very near by. So our apartment is pretty much dark all day. It's kinda depressing! The two rooms that get the most light are the kitchen and our bedroom. So I decided to take some pictures of Leah. Some are from two weeks ago, some are from a couple of days ago.

She sticks her tongue out all the time:

I just like her face in this one:

See? The tongue again:

So let me just say that I am BARELY surviving. Well, It's more like a roller coaster. Some days I feel like we're all crying all day, some days I feel so much love and so grateful for my two little babies. My shower's are made possible by Sesame Street. And Ross is usually home for one meal a day. He does a lot of other tasks around the house too. I'm a lucky girl. Every day gets better as we are adjusting.

Speaking of Ross, he has been interviewing for jobs over the last month for when he graduates. So hopefully by the end of this month or next we will know where we will be for the next few years! Exciting!

AHHH yay for Ross and his job search! So I failed at coming to see you again...and yes I'm still in Kansas (it's been an absurd amount of time). I apologize.

Aw! She's adorable! Congrats! If you get too overwhelmed, Dan and I can drive up to Kansas City sometime. I have no problem with that. Give you and Ross a little brake over the weekend.

What a beauty! I think the pictures are wonderful. Who needs lights through windows?

Oh, I wanted to let you know I have a giveaway on my site.

Oh Lauren, you are doing so great, I wish that I were there to lend a hand. I remember with Harrison he would just cry all the time he had the worst colic and I would just cry right along with him. Thankfully Gwen was a really heavy sleeper because some nights were never ending.

You are moving through with great triumph though, thanks to Sesame street you are still a human being, and you are also taking note of wonderful moments. Boo for the no windows, but I am happy to see you making the best of it. She is so darling, and I love that she sticks out her tongue that is really cute.

She is beautiful! What great work you and Ross do! I love the little tongue sticking out! We'll keep our toes crossed for Ross!
