Life With TWO!
Well I really got away from writing in here for a while but I guess that can happen sometimes! We are all adjusting well to life with two, but Adam isn't actually back to work yet! He goes back on Wednesday and I'm wondering how it will go! Thankfully he has been home this whole time since having Penelope, because poor Ollie has been teething pretty badly and was cutting molars all weekend long. We tried everything we could think of to help and make him feel better but nothing seemed to help and it was just rough. Thankfully he seems to be doing a little better today and we went to the pool and he had a great time! Yesterday we tried taking both kids to the beach and it was definitely interesting, but we all survived and nothing beats adventuring with this little family of mine.
Penelope has been quite the little sleeper and is a very calm, happy baby. She loves to nurse and be outside, just like her brother! Some days it seems like that's all we do is hang out outside, and it makes me wonder how he'll do once winter comes! Any suggestions are appreciated! ;)
Ollie has been THE most amazing big brother and always comes up and kisses Poppy on the head when he is in the middle of playing, and then just goes right back to whatever it is he was doing! He has been nothing but sweet and loving toward her which amazes me since he has never been around a tiny baby before and it seems to just be innate. I love watching them together.
We had family here visiting for a little while after Penelope was born and that was amazing to see everyone and they were just SO much help! At some point I'll need to sit down and write my out birth story for Poppy but for now I'll just say that it was short and SO amazing! I was really lucky to have my mom and sister in the room with me as support and I couldn't have done it without them!
Lastly I wanted to just include a link for the dress I wore to the beach since it is so affordable and the perfect little end of summer/beach dress! It was only $26.99 on Amazon and can be found here. It runs pretty big so I got an XS. I am wearing Poppy in my favorite baby wrap, which can be found here! Anyway, hope you all had a nice weekend! Hopefully next time I won't go so long until I write again. :) :)
