A quick update on life here now that Nathan is 3 weeks old. Mostly he still feel very new and very out of place here in our home. That being said I love him so dearly already. I forgot how soft babies are. They have that soft baby hair all over them, which makes them really cuddly. Nathan is really hot as well, especially when he sleeps.
For the moment Darryl and I have a night time routine which is working pretty well, although it will have to change soon as we miss sleeping in the same bed together. Nursing is going well, I can do it in public.
I went out with a bunch of other new mommies last Friday to an indoor play place for our 2 year olds. I found out that most of them have been leaving their kids in their dayhomes while the new babies were around. This made me feel much less guilty about Darryl and my descion to have Lucas still go to Lesley's one day a week.
Lucas continues to do really well with having his new brother around. We are slowly breaking the habit of staying upstairs while he falls asleep, which was no big deal when it was just him.
Nathan is gassy, we are trying Ovol and massage, which seem to be temporary solutions. I think things with Nathan have been a little bit easier becuase I know the bad things will go away, like the gassyiness and the not being able to tell us what's wrong.
Must run, baby needs me.
