I can’t believe that this little guy is already one month old! And I can’t believe that I have neglected my blog this long too! So sorry friends. I am reading blogs. That I can do with one hand. But comment or write? Not so much. I have no less than 5 blog posts in the draft stage but haven’t been able to finish them. But don’t worry, I’ll get there.
I usually have 20 minutes to myself in between the feeding frenzies (have I mentioned this kid loves to eat?) in which I have to choose if I will make something for me to eat, or take a shower, or do dishes or laundry, or pick up the house, and blogging gets put off until “later”. Notice how I use “or” not “and”. Yeah. It’s like that. But in the best possible way of course!
Then when “later” comes and the other kids are in bed I am usually too tired to do anything and I crash too. It’s been kind of nice to be in bed and asleep before 10pm. (not tonight, as I am actually posting something) The not so nice part is that baby is still waking up quite often in the night. My early bedtimes are the only things keeping me sane right now.
Well, not the only thing. School is in session again and I now have two kids gone all day. I do miss my little helpers, but it is less work for the momma that way. Now it’s just me and the boys. It’s pretty easy to keep Pitter Patter happy and busy and his little brother is a pleasure to hold/cuddle/stare at/take pictures of/smother in kisses and that other stuff that more than makes up for some of the not so pleasant parts of motherhood.
I can’t really say that I haven’t done anything besides taking care of baby though. I have had house guests come and go all month. (grandma’s who helped me immensely) I’ve done some fun baby crafts and sewing projects. (that I’ll write about later) We had two birthday parties for big M and I went out on a date with J to celebrate our 11 year anniversary. I’m still calling it a date even though my sister who was visiting from out of town came with us. And of course I took baby too. Still. It’s the closest thing we have had to a date in a very. long. time.
Aw, this picture is one of my favorites. My little guy is pretty patient with me and the many, many photo sessions that I make him endure all day. But I have to take lots of pictures. He’s changing so fast. . . and it’s hard to find good light. . and have him awake. . . without spit up on his clothes. . . I figure I might as well get him used to having a camera in his face now. Sorry. It’s not going to stop anytime soon buddy. You’re just too sweet…
