Pretty Exhausted

So we went from breastfeeding challenges into thrush infection of the mouth to gassy colic within the last week. Boy am I tired. Really, really tired. I am looking forward through the fog of this time wondering how I will ever be sentient enough to return to work and function like a professional adult. Everyone keeps assuring me it gets better, easier. I know it will but for now it is all consuming as I suppose it should be.

My mom is here visiting right now which is great timing. She arrived the morning that Scott went back to work so I still have an extra set of hands for help. We just finished a nice walk around the neighborhood with Cora which is one of my favorite things to do as I still can't get over how good it feels to walk now that I'm not pregnant. We broke down and got ourselves an Ergo carrier. I thought we were jumping the gun since Cora is still so little but last night when I was walking her around the block in it hoping to help her fall asleep I was saying a prayer of thanks for this awesome carrier. It blows all the others out of the water. When we are home bumming around the house I use a simple sling but when it's time to hit the fresh air our Ergo is more comfortable and enjoyable to use.

And of course, here are a few recent photos:
