Baby Days

I can't believe it's already been three and a half weeks of sleepless nights and busy days of nursing, changing, wiping, rocking and much cuddling with little Jake. He's changing quickly already with his body filling out and his face so becoming so bright and alert. He's been a very content baby although demanding quite frequent feedings that are so exhausting in the middle of the night. Some days my mind feel a little less foggy with fatigue such as today and then I actually find energy for a quick post on the blog. Hopefully soon I can become more regular again with blogging. Until then it feels as though time is very measured in this household and time for me is put on hold for a bit. I forgot how demanding those first weeks are and especially a whole new scenario with a toddler in the mix. Hanna has been really good with Jake and showers him with hugs and kisses. Many days have been frustrating though as she continually tests me, especially when I'm busy with nursing. She's definitely feeling my lack of attention on her and seems to vent those feelings by doing all the things she's not supposed to be doing. She's seems to be becoming daddy's girl now, which is good after all those months of him being away on the semi. I'm so thankful for dolls too because they occupy much of her time. It also helps her to stay connected with me by both of us being mommies together. Not to mention that she imitates everything I do and say with Jake!

well, it's back to baby duties for me....
