Seriously it has been a CRAZY past 8 weeks (I can't believe it has only been 8 weeks It seems like an eternity) I am working on trying to blog it all now that life has settled down some. Chad gets to go back to work this week (he is ready to not be the mom and dad and chef and gardner and everything else anymore) He has been AMAZING!! I can't say enough about how lucky I am to have such an awesome involved and supportive husband. He was able to take a leave of absence from work when Jack had his accident. I couldn't get a leave so I planned to go back to work as soon as he got out of the hospital. That lasted a whole week before Ryan decided to make his appearance. Chad had planned to be off with jack for 6-8 weeks anyway since he would need to go up to the doctor and other things for a while and luckily he was still off to help with Ryan and allow me to be at the hospital with him as much as I needed to be. Anyway I jsut needed to document how amazing he is. He helps so much with the kids and will even get up in the night and feed the baby sometimes when I jsut can't drag my self out of bed. Everynight I head to bed when Jack does and Chad keeps Ryan until he comes to bed so I can get a few hours of "good" sleep. It has made a HUGE difference and I'm a little nervous of what life will be like this weekend when I'm alone with both boys for 5 days. Chad will still be here in the evening to help with dinner and getting Jack ready for bed, but he will have to come to bed earlier and I will have to drag myself out of bed and try to not let the baby wake him up as much. We'll see how it goes. I'm going to head back to work in a couple weeks and Ryan is so small that the doctor suggests we dont take him anywhere until he is 3 months. Luckily Chad and I's schedules ussually only overlap 1 day a week and my awesome supportive parents have offered to help on those days. I seriously am so lucky to have to many close by that can and will help us! Anyway I will work on getting pictures and stories up soon!
