2 Months


Our Little Bean is 2 months old now.

He completes our family absolutely perfectly, that is for sure. He is loved, loved, loved. My other Little Men help so much. They simply adore him. Watching their love and adoration is a really sweet experience for these parents.

He is a great baby at night and a little needy during the day. He eats, poops, and cries just like a good baby should. His little smiles are starting to make an appearance and we LOVE them. We are all wrapped around his teeny tiny pinkie finger.

Going from three Little Men to four has definitely been an adjustment though.

I am learning that my to-do list will probably never get even close to be being accomplished ever again. I am slowly getting over the shock of having four little piles of folded clothes. I have never been so tired in m'whole life. There is a lot of guilt when time is not completely balanced between each of my boys. I am learning how to juggle. I am learning how to be okay with dropping the "balls" that aren't that important.

I am also learning that it is possible to love in amounts you didn't know existed. There are quiet moments of joy. Loud moments of hilarity and laughter. There are hugs, kisses, zurberts, hand-holding, and cuddles.

Yup, we sure are grateful this tiny Little Man has joined our family. Like I said, he completes us.

Amen!!! He is such a cutie pie. One of my favorite mental pictures is of Littlest Man "I loves him, can I give him kisses?" All day long. Nana

I have 4 kiddos, 4 yrs. old and under. Those first few months are an adjustment! If it's any help, I used to sit down at night, after putting the 3 older boys to bed, and nurse the baby and cry some... not a "horrible day!" cry, but a "wow... what a whirlwind.what all just happened today..." cry. It was just so busy and I didn't have time to think about it until it was just me and the baby in the evening and then it hit me. It was going good, just "peaceful pandemonium" as my mom says and I wanted to sit and stare at the wall at night. After 4 or 5 months though, baby #4 started going to bed a little earlier and I finally started being able to sew again and do the little things I love, but didn't have time to do and that helped me SOOO much. Like sanity was working it's way toward me again. :) Now the youngest is almost 8 mos. old and it's great. Hang in there!

Thank you for your sweet words of encouragement! They are needed for sure.

I know in a couple of months things will be calmer.
