Life as a Mom of Two

So far so good…

Despite all the anxiety I was feeling about having the two kiddos at the same time by myself I’ve done surprisingly well. I’ve learned that Hannah can wait a minute as she seems to always find me nursing to be the opportune time to need something. We could be sitting together for an hour and the moment I go to nurse Carter her world is coming to an end. She cracks me up! Carter is an excellent baby, he is never one to cry for no reason. He pretty much eats, sleeps and has occasional moments of being awake-staring around the room. His jaundice looks to be about gone and his cord has almost fallen off (Thank God!)

Hannah is a pretty good big sister, she loves on her brother as much as possible. She also needs him in her sight as much as possible. If she doesn’t see him when she gets up from a nap she will wander the house saying “Baby” until she finds him. Occasionally she does “pat him” which is more like pounding on him and we have to correct her. So far so good!

Christmas was interesting this year, Tom had put together the kitchen, art aisle and baby doll station on Christmas Eve so that it would be ready for Han on Christmas. Surprisingly she became infatuated with the art aisle and it was like pulling teeth to get her to open her presents that where under the tree. With a little coaxing we did get her to open all of her presents. My parents and Tom’s family came  over to our house for Christmas dinner, that is always nice. Han enjoyed having her Aunt and Uncles around to play with her.

    Luke did that at first, but he’s now used to Emily so that has pretty much stopped. Glad to hear you’re surviving! :)
