But now we occasionally have early mornings like this:
1am: Me, feeding Fisher/changing diaper
3am: Harrison taking Jack potty
5am: Me feeding Fisher/changing diaper
6am: Harrison trying to convince Jack the sun is still sleeping, and he should be too.
But we love it.
I was a little nervous about becoming a mother of two.
Because honestly the transition from being a mom of 0 to 1 was a little tough for me.
I went from working full-time to being a stay at home mom 24 hours a day.
It took me
Fisher is such a sweet baby. He is always so content to just hang out on the bed, the couch, or in his swing and let me accomplish things around the house. He is starting to smile all the time, and his nighttime sleep is coming in longer spurts all the time. He made it 6 hours the other night (woo hoo!) Just like his brother though, he won't be little for long. As of last week, he had already gained over 3 pounds since his birth weight 6 weeks ago!
Jack is loving having a baby in the house. He's always hugging and kissing him, and saying, "Good morning, Fisher!", "Can I hold Fisher for a second?", or my favorite, "Hi, Smiles!" haha. And he is a great help to me, getting me Fisher's pacifier, throwing away diapers, etc. I haven't noticed any sign of jealousy or resentment which I've heard horror stories about when a sibling enters the picture for some kids. But we do have to monitor how much he loves Fisher. Like when he threw a ball to him the other day wanting Fisher to catch it...I can't wait until these boys can really play together!
Harrison is loving his position here. His first official day on the job they made him a platoon leader over 40 men. Translation? He's kind of a big deal. He's staying busy learning his new responsibilities, but luckily is home every night by 5:30PM. Finally a little bit of normalcy.
My bed usual finds me in it by 10pm. With two active boys and still doing two middle of the night feedings, I am exhausted if I don't go to bed at a decent hour. This week I think we can say officially say we're completely unpacked and organized. There are still so many decorating ideas I have (thank you, Pinterest) but those will have to come with time.
I love my little family!
