Well, we made it home and through a few days alive. I am shocked at what I have forgotten about having a newborn – you think I would remember everything since I have three under four years old but nooooooo! KB has been a good baby. Main problem is that her days and nights are flipped – she is my first baby to have that problem. I don’t know what you are supposed to do about that. She is literally awake most of the night and sleeps like a log all day. Mother advice welcome here. Speaking of motherly – my mom is here and it’s so great. The kids love having memom around and I am so thankful — so so thankful!
Little loves her new sister and spends the day reporting to me what KB is doing. “KB is sleeping.” “KB is awake” “KB is eating.” She loves to hold her and give her a pacifier. It is a joy to watch. Bubba has just gotten to where he will approach her. It seems he has realized she isn’t leaving so he better make good with the new girl. He came over to kiss her yesterday and I said, “That was so sweet, Bubba.” He will now come over and kiss her and say, “Give baby kisses. MMMMMA (kiss noise). Bubba so sweet.” Good grief.
Little had her first school production on Tuesday. Her class performed the book The Big Pumpkin – Little was the big pumpkin. She did great holding her vine throughout the performance and then she stood, threw her arms open wide and said her one line, “Happy Halloween”. She did a great job – I was a proud momma. Of course, Little just wanted it to get over so she could come see KB in her carseat. She was so excited to have KB at her school!
Tonight was a fall festival at our church and we all went. Okay, it wasn’t the best decision in hindsight – the kids really were too young for most of the activities – but I am such a sucker for that kind of thing. I’ll know better next time I have my third one week before Halloween and have to decide about Fall Festival 🙂
Just a quick serious update: I have felt great and the percocet helps! Having my mom here has really been such a help and I am so thankful for all the laundry that is done and pants that are hemmed, etc. Our church family is taking good care of us and we are grateful. KB is healthy – all “scares” in the hospital are behind us. Her jaundice is gone and her breathing is normal. She is regaining weight and doing super! Thanks to all who prayed. My husband is the greatest. This is such a stressful week at work and he still took our kids around the fall fest that wasn’t age appropriate – – with a smile on his face. I love him so. God is good — all the time.
