Yes, it’s already been two weeks since the birth of our baby boy. Time is flying, as it always does – but we have just spent the last 14 days learning and loving being our new family of four. I will continue to say that I’m blessed beyond measure. Having our first child was so overwhelmingly special I truly wasn’t sure how your heart allows to love even more beyond that. But, it does, more than anyone can understand until you have two or three or four of your own, but now being a mama of two small little faces makes more proud than ever before. The oldest is turning into a big sister now, learning how to share the spotlight, giving hugs, kisses, and showing her jealous side a bit too as a major meltdown ensues when little brother gets too much attention. For the most part she’s doing amazing and I love watching her turn into the BIG sister I know she will be. The little one is breathing, eating, sleeping, and well – pooping. ALL.THE.TIME. I had forgotten how prepared you need to be at changing newborn diapers, there is always an element of a suprise if you’re not quick enough. Sure we’re not sleeping much right now, our schedule is a bit off, and the house gets messier than ever before but I’m absolutely diving into it all and cherishing every minute. Yes, my type A control freak side is challenged trying to keep up with things, or let go rather, but this time around I find myself more relaxed as I’ve seen with Brooklyn how fast it will all change. His little fingers, toes, tiny baby feet, pudgy face, sleepy eyes will be no more just a matter of time and I’m not going to miss a thing. It’s weird to think that this chapter of my life is now closed – going through pregnancy was truly memorable but I am almost certain I can say I’m glad it’s over. 🙂 I mean, I love the heartburn, puking, uncomfortable 24/7 feelings, but I pass the torch to the rest of you now.
For now I am focused on being a mama of two, my babies, my world.
