After keeping us waiting until a solid week after her due date, sweet Charlotte finally made her debut. Eight and a half pounds and twenty one and a half inches… yea- I did that. She is wonderful, healthy and an excellent baby. And after taking a few months off from my responsibilities, I’m finally ready (I think) to return.
It’s been a bit of a challenge to be productive during the day. It’s true that two is more difficult than one. Chasing a toddler on anything less than a full nights sleep can (and does) test your patience. As Charlotte and I get to know each other better, there are times I could swear she nurses every half hour, which puts a complete stop to anything and everything else I might or might not be doing. They say to nap when your baby naps… but that can only happen when BOTH babies are napping (which has happened only once since she was born). I’m not whining. I promise. It’s not all bad. Bennett is handling the change like a champ, and I have a cuddly, soft, squishy baby to snuggle with (since my big boy seems to be outgrowing the cuddles). But these are my reasons (or maybe excuses) as to why I can’t seem to get anything done.
All of this aside, having another little person has allowed me a chance to try all of the newest baby gear and gadgets. And the best part- I get to share it all with you! I’ll be posting about the wonderful items when I can (I make no promises to be consistent), and am hoping to pass along the goodies as I can.
Stay tuned. It feels good to be back (and to get something done). However, I must go. My sweet squishy is calling for me.
