I am relieved to report that we are all alive and well! after two long weeks of being a family of 5! Little Benett is PRECIOUS and so so sweet. We all love him to bits and I am especially grateful for a quiet content little baby. He sleeps all day, and after a few rough days at first - he is now sleeping great at night too. He gets up every 3-5 hours to eat and then goes right back to bed! I can't believe my luck really! I was braced for the worst, but have been pleasantly surprised at how well this transition has gone. 3 kids is definitely tough, dont get me wrong... But its not nearly as bad as I was expecting. My recovery has been a breeze, thanks im sure, to only pushing for 15 minutes. Im back in my jeans and feeling completely normal (although slightly sleep deprived!). I dont know if this is the calm before the storm - or a tender mercy from the Lord. But I hope it continues!
My kids have gone a little insane being cooped up indoors all day long. The dark days and freezing weather make it pretty tough to get outside with a newborn. I havent yet tried to go anywhere (besides Jaynas house) with all 3 kids. I hope I never see the day when I have to venture out on my own...they just dont make big enough carts.
Benett is SO mellow, SO fair, SO Lanky, I have no idea where he came from! He is slowly starting to beef up and he changes every day. I love the little newborn stage but I cant wait to see more of his personality! Lets hope he stays nice and quiet :)
