First day alone...

*Update #1*
1:45 pm. Well, the first part of the morning went pretty well...until I needed to feed Phoenix. Zadie sobbed hysterically and clung to my leg the whole time I was feeding him (probably about 1/2 an hour all together). I couldn't get her to sit with me, I couldn't distract her with anything at all (including trying to get her to give her doll a bottle). I finally managed to calm her down, although of course it meant putting Phoenix down. Shortly after that she took a two hour nap (good, but sometimes she sleeps longer). I used her nap time to wash bottles, feed Phoenix again, take a bath and rest for an hour. Anyway, we'll see how the rest of the day goes!

Well, today is my frist day alone with the kids. It's only 8 am so nothing to report on yet...I'll have to update later and let you know how it goes. One prayer request though. Zadie has been SO difficult (whiny and crying hysterically over everything) for the last week since she's been sick. If you could pray that she'll be better today that would be awesome! I'll update you later today or tonight :happy:
