6 weeks today!
at 4 weeks; already awake, engaging and stinkin’ cute;
at 5.5 weeks – we love him completely;
it’s true what other mamas told me, that i just can’t imagine life without him. i was nervous, really really nervous for the transition and now i am so very relieved. not only is he just an awesome and easy baby who sleeps through the night but little A is smitten too. sure he says things like “just leave him in his poopy diaper so we can go” but he also never misses a diaper change where he lays at his side, watching him, sometimes holding something for him to see. i know he’s delighted by his little brother and though he won’t say it, he’s a proud big brother. the 2 of them together…. gush!
no cherries. no apricots. it was a strange and rainy time in the Okanagan for our reunion of family and friends.
there were sunny patches, often with clouds of thunder looming over the mountains but we did have an afternoon at the beach and there was a little wine touring fun.
i’m waiting on the photos of others to fill in the gaps. it was a busy time but i’m still figuring out how to simultaneously sling my camera and baby – most of my photos are really really bad. oops.
gosh this seems like forever ago. i was told to take it easy for at least 6 weeks and while it’s good advice i’d give to any mama i just couldn’t slow down for so long. don’t get me wrong, i certainly have slowed down to take this little one in. he’s been such a dream that the change to mothering of 2 has been a fairly smooth transition.
Sunday May 16th, 2010 @ 5:55am he swam into my arms and i fell in love all over again. He’s gorgeous and awesome…i’m still taking him all in.
keeping mostly in the moments here, i have yet to write our birth story. the short version; it was fast – 3 hrs 39 mins. supported – the house was full with my women. smooth – i moved, paced and talked through most of it. surprising – a boy! those first days were sweet, gushy and short. the abundance of milk was once again overwhelming! the crash of hormones unyielding. it’s good to be on the flip side. me and my littles are out and about. on that note, Little A has been really patient and amazing, all the while breaking a new tooth – so many transitions for him.
(thanks for all of your comments in the previous post. i can’t figure out how to make this blog private so it remains open for now. )
