That is pretty much all I can say. This month has totally wiped us out. I knew having another baby would be a lot of work, but I definitely didn't prepare myself for how big of a change this was going to be. I had every intention of writing on here more and look, here I am barely updating once a week! The truth is- when I get even a few minutes of time to myself (you know, when both babies are sleeping) the last thing I am doing is surfing the internet or writing on my blog. I AM SLEEPING. ha!


It has truly been a rough month in all honesty. Rowan is eating every two hours and sometimes every half an hour. He is eating up to 6 oz at a time! Is that insane for a 3 week old? I know it is so much more than Kensley ever ate. Also, when he wakes up at night he stays up and wants to be held or entertained. So when he wakes up at 4am he might not go back to sleep till 6 or 7. Since I am the only one home at night right now this has made it really hard on me. During the day I have a two-year old that is demanding a lot of my time and at night I have a 3 week-old who must be cared for. Rowan is not latching on enough so I am pumping every few hours to keep my milk supply up, so sometimes even when I finally get him to sleep I have to stay up and pump. I also got a wicked UTI which was so unbearably uncomfortable on top of dealing with the pain from my c-section. So I have been walking around in a fog since we have come home from the hospital. Let's just say it has taken me a lot longer to find my "groove" this time around.


Luckily, I have had help. Some great friends have stopped by to bring dinner or just to help hold the baby for awhile. Dave had all day yesterday off so we went and saw Inception (GREAT MOVIE!) and then we went to Carrabba's for dinner. It was a nice little break and definitely needed. Plus I finally had a dream last night. I can't remember the last time I had a dream because I never am asleep long enough! Sleeping in 2 hour intervals sort of stinks. ha!


But what I am really trying to say is thank you for bearing with my while we really try to get used to this new normal. It has really been a major adjustment, but this blog means so much to me to keep up with our family and what our babies are doing. I will be back and posting regularly very, very soon!
