Finding some “me time” is currently impossible.

The only “me time” I can get is when I take a shower, and finding time for THAT is close to impossible.

Am I complaining?  Maybe a little.

When it was just M, it was easy.  She could go to me, then she could go to Hubby, and then I’d get some time for myself.  I could craft, blog, watch some TV, do what I needed to do to refresh.

Now that we have two kids, when K spends some time with Hubby, I need to make up for the time I couldn’t spend with M because I had been so preoccupied with K.  You see where I’m going?

I know that we just started this whole “two kid” parenting thing.. and K is still really young and still really dependent.

I feel like I just got so used to M being so much older.  I forgot how it was when M was young and completely dependent on me.  I know that I hardly had any time for myself back then, as well.

I know we are all still adjusting… but I do miss those moments I get to myself just for a little refresher…

I know that day will come soon…

Kisses, kisses everywhere…

M loves to give K kisses.

Every morning, M covers her little sister in kisses.  I think it’s adorable.

I think it’s really sealing their bond as sisters.

I feel like it’s definitely made an impact on how K feels about her sister.  There is a definite bond between them now and I can see it whenever K looks at M.

K, at this young age, loves to look at her sister.  Her little eyes follow M where ever M goes.  She’s even given M a big, gummy smile, something she hasn’t even done for me yet…

As each day passes, their sisterly bond just seems to get stronger and stronger.  It’s all thanks to those kisses!

Kids are like weeds.

They just grow, grow, grow…

K no longer fits in anything “newborn” sized.  Her 0-3 clothing is starting to fit her perfectly and it seems like it won’t be long before she will outgrow them too…

M wears 5T clothing, and depending on the brand, ban even wear size 6/6x clothing.  That means I’m shopping in the toddler section AND the girls section at clothing stores.  She’s three!  She’ll be 3 1/2 next month…

These growth spurts are great.  I’m glad they are healthy and growing normally…

But they aren’t doing a favor on our wallet…

Yesterday was K’s one month birthday.

Can you believe it’s been one month already?

She’s definitely grown a lot since her birth.  Her last weigh-in was at about three weeks old and she weighed about 7lbs, 11oz.  By now she’s got to be at least 8lbs.  She definitely feels like it.  Nursing her and only using one arm can get really tiresome, really fast.  I can feel her weight against my arm and that’s definitely a change from when she first came into this world.

She wakes up for several hours several times a day.  When she is awake, she is alert and loves to look around at her surroundings.  I love watching her little eyes dart around the room.  She is attracted to lights and can stare at them for awhile.  Her little arms and legs flail and kick when she’s wide awake.  She opens and clothes her mouth and sometimes can get a little sound out.

Her cry is slowly changing from that familiar “newborn” cry.  She’s also developing distinct cries.  She has her hungry cry, her annoyed cry, her wet cry… I don’t know if I ever noticed it with M, but I notice the difference in the cries with K.

Two days ago, we used the last of her newborn-sized diapers and officially moved her on to size 1 diapers.  She had been ready for a week or two, but we wanted to use up the rest of the newborn diapers before we sized her up.  I can’t believe how fast she out grew those newborn-sized diapers!

She’s also out grown several of her newborn sleepers, but that was a week or so ago.  She now fits snuggly in 0-3mo sized sleepers and onsies.  She no longer swims in that size anymore.  My baby is definitely growing.

Happy One Month, Little K.  We love you so much and love how complete you’ve made our family feel.  Keep growing and developing.  May God continue to bless you always.
