2 full years in Dubai!

2 years ago today we landed in Dubai.  What a wonderful 2 years it has been.  I am so grateful that we took a chance and moved here….if not for the move we wouldn’t have the boys!  They definitely provide the proof that we made the right choice. But other than that we’ve made lifelong friends, experienced new cultures, Shawn has had some wonderful career opportunities, and we’ve had much more time together as a family.  

Things are chugging along here, now that the boys are 5 weeks old they are having more awake time, which unfortunately has translated to more fussy time – much of it in the middle of the night.  Last night I slept two separate 2 hour stretches, other than that I never slept for more than 15 mins at a time. And that’s with my Mom’s help.  I’m in trouble!!!!  Prayers accepted… 😊

Obviously there is no better reason to be exhausted, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. But oh man I understand how sleep deprivation can be used as a form of torture!

This morning I was half asleep, wanted to skip my daily pumping session. But no, I am enjoying stockpiling a freezer stash for the future.  So I dutifully hook myself up, and drink my coffee with eyes half closed. 15 mins later I unhook myself and promptly spill the 3oz all over the couch.  Awesome.

Love to all~~

  1. As little as Nate slept-I did get more than you are getting-hard functioning some days on minutes of sleep. Love seeing all the pics-those smiles are too cute….I just want some baby snuggles. Two years-when are you coming back??????????

  2. Love the update and the pictures. It’s so great seeing the family pictures. Shawn looked a little deprived also. Love the cute little smile on Tommy’s face. Great picture of you with all 3 of the kids. What a great workout that is, especially as they start growing more.
