WOW! What a crazy month it’s been!
Well. I have been very busy (<— understatement). I can’t believe it’s almost been an entire month since I had the little peanut head! May has completely flown past me and I’m just now realizing that the month is almost over.
Thankfully I have had plenty of visitors and helpers this month otherwise I don’t think I would still be standing! Things are finally starting to settle down though and I THINK I’m getting into the groove of things. It’s almost as if I’ve forgotten how newborns are. I mean, Malakai is already 2 so I guess that’s enough time for all my infant know-how to go out the window. But MAAAAAAAAAAANNNN. It’s been kinda rough.
Did you know that babies poop & spit up A LOT? Did you know that babies want to be held 24/7? Getting things done around our apartment has been difficult. In fact, just a few minutes before I started writing this I was crying to Ian about how I couldn’t make dinner because the babies have been keeping me busy all day and so I didn’t have time to do the dishes. BUT, despite all the craziness around here we are SO HAPPY about our newest edition to our little family.
Mal a bit of a struggle adjusting to the new baby. Phrases like: “Mama, no baby!” and “Mama, baby couch” were things he said on an almost daily basis whenever I was holding her (which was most of the time). Luckily he’s gotten over that phase and constantly wants to kiss and hug her. It’s really sweet. He’s been trying to be very helpful too, like grabbing me a diaper when she needs a new one (and sometimes when she doesn’t, but he thinks she does) and giving her a pacifier. He’s an AWESOME big brother!
I took that the first week…I’ve been really slacking with picture taking. I’ll take more, I promise.
