Our New Normal October 23, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Christine @ 10:59 pm

We are now home with BOTH our children and trying to figure out what our new normal way of living is. Two littles ones and a Mommy who’s not at 100 percent can make for some interesting times. Luckily Jamie was off from work our first week home, we have some family in town who took care of Otis for over a week, and my Mom is now here to assist.  I couldn’t be more grateful for all that help because I need it!

Since coming home we’ve had many wonderful moments and many challenging moments. Our new normal involves Jamie spending lots of time with Elly and me spending lots of time with Miles with some crossover whenever possible. Our family activities include eating lunch together on our porch, going to the pediatrician and walking together to get our mail. Jamie takes Elly to the park and on errands, I feed, change and cuddle Miles at home. Jamie and I both take turns soothing our crying Miles, especially through the long nights, we hope it’s just a temporary phase but for now unless he’s sleeping or eating he’s usually expressing himself very loudly.

Even though my life has just become a lot busier I couldn’t be more grateful for my healthy, beautiful family. I feel very lucky to have Elly and Miles to take care of and to have a wonderful hubby to raise children with. I am looking forward to all the adventures we will share as a family of four.

    So I spoke with mom and she has agreed to let Otis come stay at our house for a year while you get readjusted there. I’ll be by to grab him around 6:00 p.m. Have his belongings packed and near the front door, please.
