A month has flown by, full of busy days and often interrupted nights.
Lil’ Wonder is doing well, eating a lot, growing… currently nursing has replaced sleeping for the little guy and I am struggling to keep up with his nocturnal demands and dealing with an oversupply issue. I’m also struggling with balancing getting two ready to get out the door to do an errand or go to the store, so Wonder Boy is going a little stir crazy staying home and waiting for his share of attention (and I’m a little stir crazy too!)
Wonder Boy is so enamored of his baby brother that he will want to touch him, kiss him and love on him so much that someone has gotten woken up more than once from a much hoped-for nap.
He has been great about being a baby brother- rushing to his side when he cries, playing with him on the floor, snuggling with me when Lil’ Wonder is nursing.
He went through a variety of phases while adjusting a week straight of sleeping with Daddy after waking up from nightmares, more arguing and opinions, a brief moment of potty accidents.
It looks though that we have made it to the other side of those challenges.
I’m struggling to keep up with my to-dos every day, having lost half of my time to a newborn, and everything has definitely been lost in the mess, including writing here. I’m also easily ‘touched out’ so some days are a struggle all day after exceeding my quote through the night before and early morning hours. Luckily Mr. Wonder hits the ground running when he comes home to make sure dinner is made, Wonder Boy has some love and Lil’ Wonder get that diaper change when my hands are full of other stuff.
I think I hear him crying… so until nect time.
