I often find myself wondering why things feel so disorganized and chaotic. Then I remember that we have "doubled" our family in two years! We have gone from being a couple to a family of 4! No wonder I am so tired. The laundry alone has been enough to keep me busy.
Bringing BG home made us complete, but we all went through a lot of big transitions. She was so sick in the beginning that we had a hard time figuring out our new routines. BB also had some issues with adjusting to being a big brother, and learning what preschool was all about. As a Mommy, I was working very hard to figure out how to do meals, bedtime, and public outings with two young children!
BG is healthy and doing wonderfully! She still is on the quiet side, but we are really enjoying her enthusiastic greetings (Hi Mama! Hi Dada!). BB had a great last couple months of school. He loved his new program. We also adjusted his diet, which seemed to make a huge difference in his sleeping and behavior (for the better!).
This week have successfully gone on a few new adventures. My confidence is increasing and I am really feeling that our family has come together. We have new routines and new ways of doing things. Of course not each day is perfect, but on the whole we are having many more good days than rough days.
We are doing much better than OK!
