These days are slipping away so quickly. I'm working hard to get the swing of having two little people to care for each day. Our baby girl is so even tempered (at least so far!). She does wake every few hours to eat, but usually is easy to get back to sleep. We typically have one mini-crying fit a day, but she is far less fussy than Little Smith was at the same age. I'm sure some of that is my comfort level as well. She's just a sweet little thing right now.
Little Smith is hanging in there. He loves being a big brother and gives the most gentle pets and kisses. I can see he's aware of all the changes though. James has had a deadline this week so there's been very little time with pop, a big shift from the last month when we were spoiled having him around so often. That coupled with my split attention has lead to a lot of clinging to mama and a handful of epic tantrums. He is also nearing three, I know it's a complicated age. In between those tantrums he is still his happy and curious self, and I expect this transition will just keep getting easier with each new week.
I'm feeling completely exhausted. We aren't getting to bed early enough which is leaving me with just a few hours of interrupted sleep. I need to fix that... soon. I'm also feeling so lucky and joyful. It's just right having this new tiny person in our family. I'm so in love with her already and I am daydreaming of all the adventures she and her brother will have in the months and years to come.
