Living life in the carpool lane..

Posts Tagged ‘three week old newborn

It’s been a full work week (Mon-Fri) where its just been me and the two littles, M and K.

It’s not been easy.  In fact, I’m typing this up one-handed as both girls are napping, but K decided my arms were much more comfortable than any flat, soft surface I tried to lie her down on.  No worries.  Past experience has taught me that these babies only stay this little for so long and that I should make the most of every opportunity I have to hug, snuggle and cuddle with them.

So, please excuse any overlooked typos..

It’s definitely been chaotic.  I’m still trying to figure out the best way to make life run as smoothly as possible.  Hubby and I are still trying to figure out how best to juggle both girls when it comes to meal times and bedtimes.  It’s trial and error, but as long as both kids get fed and both kids sleep, I think we’ve been pretty successful.

The house is a mess most of the day.  Laundry piles up.  Diapers are everywhere.  Clothes are everywhere and we never know if they are clean or dirty.  Dishes pile in the sink.

Definitely chaos until Hubby comes home from work.

But, I’m embracing the chaos.  It’s only been three weeks since K’s been born.  It’s only been three weeks since I could actually move around.  It’s only been one week that I’ve been doing this on my own.

It’s a learning curve, and I’m definitely trying to figure things out one task at a time.

On Sunday, K turned 3 weeks old..

Three weeks.. that went fast.

She’s starting to become more aware of her surroundings.  She can hear our voices and will turn her head toward the voice that is talking to her.  She still sleeps through most of the day, but will find several hours of the day to be awake.  Those hours are usually around 6-8am..

She gives me a good 4 hours of sleep at night between feedings.. Four hours of sleep feels so much better than three hours.  It’s amazing how refreshing having that extra hour of sleep feels..

M is getting more and more adjusted to having a little sister around.  She loves to give K kisses all over.  She’s becoming a very loving big sister.

I can’t believe K has been here for three weeks already.  She feels like she’s been with our family for such a long time.  She just found her place in our little family and I love how complete we all feel.
