It has been a whirlwind. My son and his family have arrive and I am now only able to blog about it. I normally blog this during the the work week but my time with my little angels has taken up my time at the computer. It is amazing the difference between visiting grandchildren and living with grandchildren. They consume the energy and time I took for granted.
Nap times are different between the siblings. Good thing, Liam doesn't mind the noise of a full house. The more noise the better. They have taken sleeping with the radio on so Liam can sleep a little longer.
Zoe, on the other hand, she needs to be isolated with minimum noise. Unless she goes to bed exhausted, she will fight nap time if she can still hear us.
I haven't forgotten the intense prep work for a baby. Measuring the formula, having a burper at the ready, and changing a boys diaper. Needing to be ready to dodge the stream of urine. I have been lucky so far that hasn't happened. Yet!
Sleep, poop, and eat. The life of a baby. It sounds simple and easy to take care of a newborn. But the little angel wears me out. People jump when they hear him cry. It has been awhile since I have heard the cries of a newborn in the house. I say about 21 years, Good lord! After I feed him, he goes to sleep. As he sleeps, I think he gives off sleeping waves because all of a sudden I am sleepy too. Do the baby formulas give off sleeping gas? (Yawn) Just writing about it makes me sleepy.
I have to buy stock in Pepsi Max. I have been buying that a lot lately. Only thing that helps me maintain the energy I need for Zoe. She is all over the place. The funniest thing is she growls. I have learned what the different grunts mean. She wants to be picked up all the time. Wouldn't be bad, if she didn't weigh so much. Good work out though!
I can't nap anymore. Not that I took many, once in awhile. but the option is no longer there. I go to bed and I am out like a light before my head hits the pillow. I hear baby cries in the middle of the night. It makes me smile because I am not the one who has to take the night shift. I am also reminded that they are still here.
So tired...zzz... Can there be a good tired?
