I am absolutely loving this new little person. I knew I would but what I didn’t expect is that I would love Nate that much more. Seeing him in his new role of big brother is so fun. He is completely in love with Ben.
I am busy and tired but overall I think I’m doing well. I’ve not felt overwhelmed or like I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. There are plenty of times I have to skip a nap time story or Nate has to wait longer than he would like for something but it’s been a really smooth transition. We get out of the house a few times per week (and yes, it takes forever to get out ) I’ve had to pull over and nurse the boy in a parking lot and scratch full days due to Ben wanting to eat for hours on end. I am napping almost daily since a good night of sleep is 4 hours but this time I’m coping with the tired much better. I know that if we stay in our bed too long the day is a wash but if I make my list and get moving first thing it’s a better day. A day that includes me brushing my teeth and getting a shower, and that alone makes a difference.
I owe you the birth story and it’s coming soon. The nursery is done so a post on that is coming up, too. I have so much to share with you and I hope that I can find the time to post more, I feel like there are lots of holes in my story now. I really want to write more an am trying to make that more of a priority. You know outside of the 1000 others.
