It’s been a busy, sleepless, love-filled month as we’ve gotten to know our newest family member!
I’ve mostly been in our house, hiding from the cold, with this sweet one and doing my best to rest and bond. (The bonding is easier than the resting!) It’s such a different experience to have a baby in the winter—the girls were both May babies so we could sit on the porch or in the yard and enjoy the warmth and the sun. But endless snow and lots of sickness out in the world has kept us at home and while I am sure that I will think back to this time with fondness, it has been a struggle to feel somewhat “stuck”.
That said, I feel so grateful that I was able to get work stuff sorted for a few months and am doing my best to ignore my computer…this final baby time is fleeting, that I know for sure! I’ve also been enjoying the time to read books on my Kindle while I feed the baby, which feels like a total luxury.
And this is just a reminder that if I’m a little slow to respond to messages or comments, this sweet boy is why!
