We are home!
Slowly, we are adjusting to life with two kids. Henry is such a sleepy baby, and generally mellow when he is awake. He is such a joy! It does seem like everything, from nursing to the overnight wake-ups, is easier this time around. Plus, who could get frustrated with this little face?
Big sister Nina is proving to be sweet with Henry, though she is undoubtedly more work than her baby brother. I find myself saying what everyone says, "Why didn't I realize how easy I had it when I just had one kid?"
I am giving myself the grace to be away from blogging for awhile, though I doubt you'll get rid of me completely. Henry's labor and delivery went really fast and I have some healing to do, but as soon as I am back on my feet I want to get his nursery into shape. I can't wait to show it to you!
Thank you so much for all your well wishes! I have read every single comment. I am trying to take your advice and get lots of rest, and enjoy every minute while Henry is so little. I know from experience that the day will come when he won't let me hold him on my lap as often, or cuddle and kiss him as much as I want. I just want to soak up his "littleness" as much as I can. And I forgot how perfect that new baby smell is!
