Babies=Exhaustion

I was able to capture sleep deprivation in action this weekend in Columbia. My precious friend Shannon just adopted two beautiful babies, so now she has a three-year-old who is in the middle of potty training and two infants. Scott, her husband, just went back to work after being home all summer, so she's on her own during the day and most of the night. Her 33rd birthday day was this weekend, so we went WILD and gave her a great gift--the gift of sleep.

The yawn...cranking up. Full blown yawn...
Nothing says I'm exhausted like getting up at 9:30 to eat breakfast and then passing out on the couch until 1:30.
Did I mention there was a 5-year-old, a 2-year-old, and a 5-month-old in the room? Oh...and don't forget four women laughing and carrying on...and the TV...and phones ringing...and well, you get the picture.
Nothing makes for a happier Shannon than waking up for the second time to dessert dip.

But, in all seriousness, she looks darn good. Three babies, thirty-three, and still a hot mama.

oh.my.gosh! That has me laughing out loud! The exhaustion only got worse...I came home and fell asleep by 9:00 that night AND took a nap on Sunday!!! My excuse? I was up four times with some babies who shall remain nameless on Saturday night. Last night I got a rockin' 4 hours of sleep...in two 2 hour blocks. This too shall pass. thanks for the sleep!
