I have been too busy to blog. Everything is going well around here, though. Cupcake was up to 8 lbs., 7 oz. at her 2-week checkup, so she has regained her birth weight and then some. Dear Little Fellow is doing really well now with having a little sister. He is getting better at entertaining himself while I take care of Cupcake. She still sleeps a lot, but my midwives say that’s fine–since she’s gaining plenty of weight–and that I should enjoy it while it lasts!
Some friends of ours (who just got engaged–yay!) brought dinner over to share with us last night, and we had such a nice time together.
I took both kids out by myself for the first time on Monday. Wow! It took so much preparation…getting myself ready, getting D.L.F. and Cupcake dressed, nursing Cupcake, figuring out the double stroller, packing everything required for a trip out with a baby and toddler, and then hauling everything down a flight of stairs! Oh, and Cupcake spit up all over me right before we were ready to go out the door! I figured, since we were only going to the park, no one would really get that close to me, so I just wiped it off as well as I could, and we were on our way. Five years ago, the thought of doing that probably would have disgusted me to no end, but…things change when you become a mom. 🙂 It’s been too rainy the past couple of days to go anywhere, but if the weather clears up today, I would like try to take the kids to the library. We’ll see.
