Well, the lack of blogging tells you more about the state of affairs in my world than my simple recounting of the zaniness that is two children under two.
Simon turned 1 month old yesterday and weighed in at just over 11 lbs. He's growing up so fast. I love his pudgy little cheeks and his belly is getting huge, which is also nice because I think it means he may sleep more than 45 minutes at a time. A mother can dream...
So, he's been eating a lot, which is how he got from 8lbs to 11.1lbs in a month. He's a decent sleeper for a kid his age and he is the sweetest little boy I have ever given birth too.
Now that I am out of the shock of the experience, and the blizzard of 2011 has come and gone (thank god), I hope to blog more often. I can't believe how fast this is all going. Yesterday, the pediatrician told us that a new born is technically any baby under 2 months of age. So, we have one month left with our little newborn son.
A recap: Not much sleeping, Simon is growing and getting fuller, and we are through the first month of his life. Would I want to relive that month? Not particularly. The C-section recovery is as intense as last time, but all the more so because I can't pick up Sadie and it freaking hurts to have major abdominal surgery. The first few weeks of nursing were a little painful and only now starting to abate. Spring is closer and we are getting out and about.
I love this guy, but perfectly happy to be in the current moment and look forward to the delicious future days with my family.
