our little old man dinosaur alien.

penelope is a treasure trove of sweetness. and sleep deprivation. i've discovered that the more children i have, the more i realize i don't have it all together. in a good way. i think. i can say semi-deep things like this because i haven't slept in 2 weeks.

anyshways, my mom came over and scrubbed my floors and cleaned my house, my sis came over and organized my desk while chastising me for being a mess(kind of rude but she was doing such good work, i took the beating), and nato's sis, mom and dad have taken the other 2 kids on fun excursions to the pool and what not to let me sleep. people bring meals. this is glorious and humbling. my mom said, you're not superwoman. and she's right. i have to accept the help without feeling guilty. for the sake of the children. and with the hopes that they will forget how i fed them cold macaroni for lunch and made them fold laundry and told them it was a game. and also that children around the world love this game. and have loved it for centuries! layne's like, what's a sin-chur-ee?

he also asked why penelope looks like a little old man. personally, i think she looks like a little wrinkly alien-dinosaur. with a receding hair line. ok, so ya...layne...she does like like an old man. but whatever. she's my sweet little old man.

but this is my life right now. even writing this i think, what am i saying? am i asleep right now dreaming that i'm blogging? why do i have to nurse every 2 hours. do i really sleep every other hour? are dinosaurs real or did God just put the bones in the ground to give people jobs digging them up? why do pirates always eat apples? i don't know. these and other questions remain unanswered.

i also am guilty of watching every tv show ever made, as nursing lasts 30 to 45 minutes...and this happens every 2 hours. i don't need to know about biker weddings, but i watch and laugh at their leather chaps. housewives of new jersey?..ya, those crazy gals are nuts. oh and i watch QVC, laughing at first at the salesman...then marveling at his genius selling skills, and then eventually wanting to buy the useless product. luckily,  by way of sheer embarrassment, i turn the channel before nato walks in so i never order anything. but who needs geriatric looking shape up shoes that can also juice lemons anyway? i know, right? but it would be cool to have them, huh.

anyway, i'll stop because i'm pretty sure my typing is getting very slow and i'm actually sleep-typing. and also because penelope is screaming her head off. ruuuuuuuuuuuuude.

  3. good to hear from you, sleep deprived or not! glad you are getting the help you need and accepting it gracefully.

  4. She is so precious...so teeny tiny and sweet! We're excited to see you guys!

  5. precious precious precious!
    And middle of the night nursing TV is the worst/the best. Three's company and the P90X infomercial were my best friend/worst enemy.

    Hope she starts letting you get some sleep SOON!

  6. Glad to see you are just a zombie and haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I want a pair of geriatric looking shape up shoes that can also juice lemons. Sa-weeeet!

  7. oh my gee. i know exactly what you're talkin about woman. i didn't sleep for 3 months after caleb. and then i lost a lot of hair. and never showered. isn't having a baby the best?!

    but suuriously. i mailed your package today and i hope you wear both those bad boys at the same time, while in your pajamas, and nursing, and listening to Teresa of NJHW talk about her stupid sexist brother for the billionth time and letting your hubby cook dinner. then you'll be living the life, my friend! :)

  8. SUBLIME ! is the only word that can actually describe the way your lil' bun looks! Blessings to you, Dear 'sleep deprived' momma, and to the cute family of yours.
    Thank you for sharing this pics, honestly it lightened up my night.

  9. do pirates eat apples? hmmm... i am unaware of this pirate trait. and there is an interlude of time in my life i refer to as my QVC phase. where i watched QVC.. for fun.. for no real reason. my brother wanted to punch me in the face like every day. and you are supermom. because a supermom does the absolute best she can and trusts God to fill in the gaping holes between that and perfect. and he does... :) oh... i can hear that little newborn cry now... and seriously the pictures?? my womb is asking you to stop please. mmkay thanks.

  13. Look at those toes, flared in anger! Oh, babies get so disgusted when you do anything but nurse. She looks absolutely furious.

    We call the first 6 weeks the wet haze. Haze, for obvious reasons. Wet because I'm always either crying, leaking, bleeding, or sweating. It's a big mess of yuck fluids and noise. But then it's blissfully over, and people stop organizing your desk for you.

    She looks beautiful, and I love her little Filipino eyes and her angry toes and sweet soft hair. :)

  14. Oh, Jami. I have to come see her some time. She looks absolutely precious. You crack me up, girl, with your writing style. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh you crack me UP. I've been reading for a few months now (pretty sure since the post where you demanded that we come out of the woodworks and comment, then I didn't comment, but it was my first time reading so I got confused if it meant me too or no?) .... Ha see. You're not the only sleep-deprived, nursing every 2 hours (why don't we just say nursing 24 hours a day), watching night after night of "paid programming" at 2 and 4am, EGGS-SAUCE-TED MAMA. I had a little babe (except he was 9lbs!) on may 11.... So it will be fun to compare notes! Hang in there! Take all the free meals, and help you can get! I am!! ; )

    Penelope is darling.

  18. oh she's so tiny!! adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  19. so glad you made it safely to the computer (without buying those crazy shoes) & back to that screaming babe :)

    Accepting help when we really need is always so humbling. Why we don't realize our un-superwoman-ness more often is besides me.

    Also, the little wrinkles, the teeny diapers, the teeny eye brows! She is precious. For sure :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Still so very funny even when you're sleep deprived :).

  32. you are hilarious, and Penelope is adorable! And personally, I loved having to sit on my butt and watch t.v...er nurse every 2 hours when my kiddos were little. And you got a free pass on the piled up laundry and stacked dishes because you're a 'new mom'. Those were the days.

    ReplyDelete
  33. You're too funny!
    Love the little baby stretch.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You are hilarious! I LOVE it!!! Glad to know you are alive I have been missing your posts, but hey you gotta do what you gotta do!

    ReplyDelete
  35. so glad i'm not the only Mom who has been greatly humbled... if I'm humbled this much after one I can't imagine the mess I'd be after three! I think you're an awesome Mommy and I hope you're having a blast with your littlest... she is not a dinosaur she is BEAUTIFUL! :) Oh and receding hairlines are cool... just ask Katelyn's daddy ;)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ahh! She's so freaking adorable!!! :) yay for wrinkly old penelope.

    ReplyDelete
  37. you know what is so amazing? the squishy wrinkly baby elbow skin {i think it may be called "nepis"...look it up in the urban dictionary. which is also something else you can do during your sleep-deprived nursing moments. it's called edumacating yo'self m'kay?} she looks like an asian old man for sure too... but i can see her blossoming into a beautiful little mini-Lila. i promise to come squeeze her soon... and bring you something good.
    love you,
    jenn

  40. oh little old man babies are so adorable. hang in there...you'll survive...i think. i've never had 3 kids, but lots of other people have and they've survived. you can do it!

    ReplyDelete
  41. You have a much better sense of humor than I did at 2 weeks of new babyhood. You give me hope that having more than one child is doable. And your wrinkly old man baby girl is amazing and adorable.

    ReplyDelete

  44. don't be ashamed about watching Real Housewives. I watch them all. It makes me feel better about myself:)

    Give me a ringy ding if you need any help with your munchkins.

    Love you!

    ReplyDelete
  45. She is so tiny and sweet! Hopefully your sleep increases soon...but that laundry game continues forever!

    ReplyDelete
  46. i have a feeling that the geriatric shape-up shoe comment was a pot shot against me and i have learned my lesson! never should have bought those pieces o' crapola.

    love the little old man...my girls looked like one too. get some sleep!

    ReplyDelete
  47. She is so sweet...and a very skinny little thing...and yes, I can see the old man receding hairline thing goin' on... Jett totally looked like an old man at birth, now - according to Jeff - he just looks like "a pretty little girl". ;) Can't wait to old her!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. thanks for the laugh! love the pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ha! You are a kick in the pants! She is presh!

  50. Penelope the alien dinosaur is precious.
    AND her feet look big in her screaming picture.
    I am so glad I didn't just have a baby... I mean, I know you are glad you are no longer pregnant :)
    I just don't miss nursing every 2 hours. Wait, I still do that at night with my 10 mo. Yeah, I have it together.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Dear Penelope: Being a little sister is hard sometimes. Like when you get called an old man. I was bald until I was 2ish and my mom dressed me in overalls. I was called a boy. All the time. My older sister also convinced me of a lot of crazy things - like that a clown pulled my eyeballs out and put them back in while we were at the circus. Lies, all lies. But older siblings are really great. I promise.
    Love, your new friend.

    ReplyDelete
  53. oh, how I love you.

    :)
    so proud of you, my friend.
