Finally, I find some time for a blog post! Let’s just say that caring for a newborn doesn’t leave much time for anything else, and truthfully I haven’t wanted to do much more than snuggle with baby girl while focusing as much as possible on our firstborn as she adjusts to life with a sibling.
Do you let your kids snack on the road? We allow Alice to eat crackers and certain other foods in her car seat, which prevents her from intermittently and loudly complaining to be released from her cushioned prison. You know those people who have children who are regularly lulled to sleep by rides in the car? We are not those people.
If you had a chance to read my previous post about our toddler’s bedroom, you may remember that my sweet little girl had developed a habit of sleeping in her Ikea Circus Tent instead of her bed. We’ve made many a joke about how she’ll probably turn into a forty-year-old, unmarried woman who still sleeps in a tent on her floor. But, really, as long as she has been sleeping through the night we haven’t been too concerned about location!
We’ve been painting the interior of our house a creamy white (Swiss Coffee from Behr), and as each room in the house is completed and reassembled I’ve been taking the opportunity to do a few small decor updates.
Suddenly I find myself just two weeks shy of my due date. When did this happen? I felt way more prepared the first time around. Must be a case of second-time mom syndrome!
