I have wanted to blog so much lately, but life is just C-R-A-Z-Y right now. Life with 2 kiddos is very different…and I even have my husband home majority of the day to help right now. Only one more week of that though.
I have tons of things I want/need to blog about, but simply do not have the time. I’m taking 10 minutes to give an update right now. I’m pretty sure Maddox has colic which has made our nights pretty hard. He screams inconsolably for 2-3 hours starting at either 10pm or 1am after his feeding. It’s horrible to listen to, especially when you’re sleep deprived. At this stage with Beckham, he was already sleeping a solid 5 hours at night and by 2 months he was sleeping from 10:30pm to 4:30am with only a little work on my end (I followed Baby Wise). I was spoiled with B and assumed Maddox would follow suit. Not so much. Having a toddler makes it harder to catch up on sleep during the day.
I know this stage will pass though. I will look back and think what a short time it was…I hope! Needless to say it’s made my days more survival than anything. But this sure helps…his first social smile!
My day consists of…
-Feeding Maddox, burping him, consoling him, and rocking him.
-Pumping every 3-5 hours…I exclusively pump!
-Cleaning…I can never catch up. I usually only focus on the kitchen and living room.
-Making signs. I probably shouldn’t have my shop open, but sometimes it’s my only “get away” during the day that doesn’t involve spit up or discipline. It also helps to make money. At my desk making signs…
…Selling tons of teacher signs lately!
-Entertaining Beckham. Luckily I haven’t had to do this a lot since Ryan is home, but this is the one thing I really miss. He’s also becoming very disobedient lately too, especially to me.
-If I cook a meal for dinner, I’m pretty much supermom! Tonight I cooked a taco pasta dish…it was good. Score!
This has got to be the thick of parenthood. A toddler and a newborn who’s difficult. But every parent has to do it and to be honest, I am blessed to be in this stage. I love my boys so much! Even when I’m covered in vomit…
…yes, I’m still in my pj’s at 2pm!
Ryan and I got out for our anniversary on Sunday…I’ll post about that soon. It was a much needed night out! I enjoyed one of these…and I didn’t even pump and dump. Don’t judge. It was delicious!
Well, better go and get some rest while I can. The next feeding is the 1am feeding! Cross your fingers.
