Tranquil day at home with our complete family

November 17th, 2009 at 01:33 pm

Today was a nice, tranquil day at home with both the babies and grandma. It's crazy to think that our family is all there-- as in, we planned for two kids, now we've got both and well, that's everybody-- and now you just have to get on with the parenting and all the other stuff.

My mom is here, cooking dinner, holding babies, taking Beaner to the park, etc. What a help. I am scared about how tired we will be when all the help is gone and Hubby has to go back to work. But, we'll get through and keep our fingers crossed that this one is a better sleeper than Bean.

The to-do list on the fridge has changed too, from pre-baby to post-baby to-do. It went from "stock the fridge" to "open the 529 plan"

If we can stay on track, I hope we can fund the extra college and pay off the hospital bills without dipping into savings. Hospital bills tend to trickle in a bit at a time, so I'm hopeful.

    Sounds pretty wonderful.

    I'm so jealous, in a way--that's our plan too, two kids and a cat and a dog, and we've already got the cat and one baby on the way. I'm so looking forward to seeing our "complete" family as you put it, so even though I'll enjoy the journey, sometimes I dream of just having it all already. Enjoy!

    I remember after having the first baby, a feeling of almost dread because I knew I had to go through the rigors of pregnancy and birth again. Both were harrowing experiences for me. It always felt as if something were left undone-- like well, why work hard to lose the baby weight when we are just going to have another soon and I will have to do it all again? I know that's a terrible way to think of it.

    But, now that Bean two is here, in a way it's easier. I know what to expect and when as far as baby's development, sleeping etc., when we can have more of a life or get into a routine.

    And, I feel like I personally can start moving on and concentrating on bigger and better. I'm not in limbo like I was before. Sure, there is a lot of work to do and a lot of waiting, but I can set goals for myself as well.

    You will develop a routine...and each day gets a little easier. Before you know it, you will be back to sleeping all night...take it one day at a time for now..and accept all help offered. I raised 4 and we DO manage to survive on minimal sleep and pure will...you can do it! Congrats again on your newest blessing.
