Life with a newborn

Baby Sage is here!!  He's now 7 weeks old- and I'm not quite sure how that happened so fast.

For some reason, it's taking us a bit longer to adjust to having a newborn than it did the first time around. 

 Maybe it's because we also have an (almost) three-year-old?  He is a bit fussier than Z was,but things are getting better every day.  We switched to a formula for sensitive tummies and adjusted his bottles so he gets less air (and therefore less burping/fussiness) and that appears to be helping.  I'm still managing to cook at least 2 times a day, even if it's just microwave oatmeal and/or frozen foods sometimes.  

I have a really great helper
We're adjusting expectations around here too... when you only get 10 free minutes to do part of a project, it's hard to be happy with that; but at least after a while, you can see some progress.  My goal is to post here on Fridays- which for the rest of this year, would be a huge improvement!!  

These took me over a week to make, but somehow, still got done before making an invite on Facebook.
Right now I'm planning Zephyr's 3rd birthday party (a musical Fantasia theme- it will be awesome even if slightly confusing to describe), doing a bit of preschool-homeschooling (working on calendar time and things related to fall), and trying to maintain a bit of order amid the chaos.  Most days I feel pretty successful!

Apple hat!  She chose the design and I put it together.
Thanks for hanging in there with us; or coming back, as the case may be.  Next Friday I should have a book review for you!

  1. CONGRATULATIONS you guys!!! Sage looks like such a sweet baby! Zach has told us that Zizi is the most adorable kid ever after running into her and John over the summer. My boys are 34 months apart and the first 5 or 6 months were really rough for me (I was mostly a single parent), but after that I sorta found my groove and life got super fun again. It's a big adjustment for sure. Hang in there....I'm so impressed you are cooking and baking and crafting. Much love to you, John, Zizi, and Sage. ~Krista (plus Tom, Zach, & Eli, too)
