It’s a strange thing when you have a baby and things SLOW DOWN. You wake up and all of a sudden it’s already 1pm and nobody has had a shower or brushed their teeth or even really had a decent meal but somehow you’ve been busy since 7am!
We have definitely been in hibernation mode…and I’ve been taking advantage of Dave being home by sleeping whenever I can and then nursing Blake pretty much takes up the rest of the time! He goes back to work next week, for just that week before taking another 4 weeks off for his parental leave, so Coen and Blake and I get to have a little test run to see how our routine will change once Daddy is back to work full-time!
Blake is doing great, and still seems to be pretty chill, yay! I am loving the newborn stage this time around and can actually enjoy him being so tiny and cuddly. We are sleeping pretty well, although Blake does seem to have his day/nights mixed up a bit as his longest stretch of sleep is usually mid afternoon. He wants to be up at about 2am for a solid 2 hours, but he’ll usually just spend that time laying next to me staring at the pictures on the wall and me, which is pretty sweet too. Dave and I have worked out a pretty good system for sleep, so I think we are all handling it pretty well!
I can’t believe it is almost Christmas! I had high hopes for a bunch of handmade gifts this year…but I think we’ll need to hit the stores instead for most…ah well. Next time I’ll have to start in August and not have a baby right before Thanksgiving!
I had a little photoshoot with the boys this morning!
