So, things have been going well here. Life has been so busy lately. C.N.'s work is crazy and adjusting life to taking care of two kids is definitely an... adjustment. Mini M. is doing great as a big sister. She loves to kiss Baby all the time. I've been worried about not giving her as much attention as she was used to, but she is such a good little person and is (for the most part) happy and content.
Baby is doing great, even though he is always hungry...always. Going an 1 1/2 hours is a stretch for him... I know I have great boobs, but come on! Shouldn't that qualify as being obsessed??? :) Seriously though, some people might tut-tut about my feeding him on demand, but I'm not worried about it. I did the same thing with Mini M. then started her on more of a "schedule" around 6 weeks, and in no time she was eating every 3 hours and sleeping from 10/11pm to 5am. Now, that may not sound all that thrilling to those of you without children, but being able to sleep for a solid stretch like that is every mother of a newborn's dream. A very good thing is at least he has his night/days figured out. At night he'll sleep for a good 3/4 hours between feedings. All in all Baby W. is a sweet happy little man who, when isn't grunting has taken up a sort of squeal/trumpeting. Really- he sounds like a baby elephant. Very strange. But cute.
I have finally gotten used to all the boy differences. Girl diaper changing is so much easier. With boys there's so much "stuff" to clean around, and don't even get me started on the whole peeing thing. Every time I change his diaper and don't get peed on feels like a small victory. Also, no one ever told me his wiener had to be positioned a certain way when diapering. Come on now! How was I supposed to know that?? When he first came home he kept soaking himself all the time. It took me a couple of days to realize "things" had to be pointed downward, otherwise he'd pee right up through the top of his diaper, resulting in getting everything drenched. (Yes. I admit it, I'm a bit slow.) At least C.N. got a good laugh out of it. hardy har.
Look how cute my children are.

- Welcome to Em's world. I am a stay at home/ work at home (when the odd job presents itself) mom. I have the privilege to spend every single day with my sweet/crazy 5 yr. old daughter, Mini M. and my little man, Baby W. who was born May 3rd. I can't forget the best part of my life- my hub. C.N., who happens to be the sweetest, funniest fella alive. We have been married almost 6 years. So that's me and my fam.
