One Month

The last month has passed by sooo quickly! It's been quite an adjustment going from 2 kids to 3, but it feels like we are getting the hang of it. Nathan is a pretty good baby most of the time, though he does have days that he is more fussy. He wakes up about every 2 hours at night to eat, but I sometimes get lucky and he'll sleep 3 hours.

Hubby is a big help too, he sometimes will take the baby for a few hours so I can go to bed without him, and then just bring him to me when he wakes up. I love watching Hubby with Nathan, it is so sweet.

And the boys have done so well with him. Jakey always runs to get the binky any time Nathan fusses (although Nathan does not appreciate the binky being shoved in his face lol) and they love to hold him and check on him. The only thing that is really hard is when Jason and Jakey are getting into things and making messes while I nurse and I can't get up to do anything about it.

It makes me sad that the time is passing so quickly because I am really enjoying the baby time. I love that I can put Nathan down somewhere and leave the room and he's still in the same spot and hasn't destroyed the room when I get back lol. This baby stage is much easier than 2-4 years old. :) Cuddling with my little guy is so sweet. In the morning when he is awake and happy is the best time. And when he is tired and snuggles to sleep on my chest I don't want to put him down. He is almost smiling, not quite there but almost.

Being a mom is exhausting and I lose my patience much too often, but when I'm holding my sweet sleeping baby and he gives a little dream giggle, I know it is all worth it.

holy cow! It still just amazes me how fast they grow! He is huge already, and absolutely adorable!

he is such a QT. Can't believe it's already been a month. The 2-3 kids adjustment is really scary sounding.
