Man on man vs. Zone
My baby girl is almost two weeks old. I've been out of the house twice, getting used to that. Jared is still on paternity leave (I don't know what I would do without paternity leave). As I type I've got ruby in my arms and Jared is taking care of Lincoln in the other room. Its an odd thing to go from one child to two (I know several of you have done this and even more) but it just amazes me that this teeny tiny baby girl can change things so much around my house. I forgot about the recovery time, I forgot about the absolute lack of sleep and I forgot about how many diapers you go through.I love the sweetness a new baby brings. I love how it slows life down. How you just worry about when the last time they ate, slept or pooped was. I love how she smells, I love how she cuddles into my neck and I absolutely love to see my son run in from preschool past me to his baby sister to tell her how much he missed her. I am a very grateful momma. I love her big eyes staring up at me, how she seems to already have such personality. I am still very much afraid of taking care of a little girl (actually the teenage girl scares me the most) but I am in love with this sweet thing that has become part of our family. :)Thank you everyone for the meals and the visits. We know we are very blessed with Great friends and wonderful family.
