A whole lotta nothing

Today is the first day since Avery's been born that we don't have anything scheduled for the day. No visitors. No doctor's appointments...nothing (minus a trip to the post office at SOME point today!) So I broke my streak of showering by 9am. I'm kinda mad at myself for that too since I've been completely unproductive. I've not left the couch for the majority of the morning and I feel like I'm lounging the day away. Granted... I probably should be doing this given the whole "ripping my c-section scar" saga but...I'm a doer...and I'm feeling like I should go, do and conquer. That being said, I am conquering some serious snuggle time with Avery (who has been awake sine 7am... longest awake streak yet!) and mediocre snuggle time with Parker when he'll sit still long enough!

As I sit here, I find myself observing my kids (loving the "s") and learning more about them....then my mind wanders.... here are 10 places my mind has been in the last few minutes:

1. Parker loves Taquitos...breakfast of champions, I know. I fed him cereal but then he ate all but one of my taquitos! We'll call it a mid-morning snack.
2. Avery is either hungry constantly or has an overactive tongue. Is there a such thing as restless tongue syndrome?
3. Now that I have a smart phone, I find my tolerance for email response times to be less.... clearly I have not made any progress on my quest for patience. (but seriously... how long should it take to fix 1 typo on Avery's birth announcement proof!) I'm dying to send them out!
4. I am way behind on thank you cards and its causing me anxiety. Daniel thinks I should send thank you e cards which sounds trashy to me... but so tempting!
5. Am I the only one who thinks its awkward when people you don't know in stores asks "How's breastfeeding going?" I know its natural and good and all that (and the answer is well) ... but at this age (2 weeks old) isn't that the equivalent to asking "Are your nipples cracked and bleeding yet?" I'll talk about my boobs all day long to my girlfriends...heck, I'll show em to you...but random lady in Target.... inappropriate, no?
6. We may need to seek professional help for Parker's duck obsession... there are only so many duck youtube videos one can tolerate.
7. How do people hurt babies? If only you could see this innocent (now sleeping) precious baby face. I want to put up a billboard "Thinking of hurting your baby? Drop them off to (my address) instead." And then like on "To Catch a Predator" a swarm of cops jump on them, knock them to the ground and take them to jail. Then I would snuggle and kiss the babies until some precious family comes to adopt them.
8. I almost never finish my can of Dr. Pepper. I always leave 2 or 3 swigs... it makes Daniel mad. I don't even mean just happens.
9. Avery seems pretty gassy... did she get her dad's gestational make up or is it something I'm eating? hmm...
10. Typing this with one hand has been taxing but an excellent way to fill time so I'm not a) being productive b) getting off the couch c) watching Barney "Hi, I'm Riff."

I know what you're thinking... "what meds is this girl on?" Today... only Ibuprofen...go me. This is my brain off drugs.... I shoulda blogged my thoughts while on my post c section meds... they were even more random!
