HAPPY MONDAY! Brooke is back home (Knox comes back on Wednesday) and we are snuggling and figuring out how to sleep again over here(also, if my grammar is even worse than normal… you know why;)!
Andrew and Knox are currently outnumbered (Beretta is a girl too)…
*I looked down at my planner yesterday and it felt so good to see what my week looks like. Nada. And the best part is that Skye is here with us before we thought she would be! As far as blogging goes, I had no idea what I was going to do after having Skye for the first few weeks but right now I feel like I’ll probably have a new blog post up most days of the week and just play it by ear. I love having a ‘journal’ (I feel like my blog is my journal) of Brooke’s first few weeks to look back on so I kind of want the same with Skye. My posts will probably be short for a bit during this time but I love hearing from you guys so keep me updated on what is going on in your world too! I bet you are really going to miss my daily sweaty running selfies. Those will be back in January, don’t you worry;)
*We left the hospital Saturday night at around 8 pm. We felt ready to be in our own bed and so we were off! We had a great experience with our nurses, doctor and the food at the hospital but there is nothing like being at home.
*Andrew had Beretta back when Knox was a newborn so this is her second go around with a newborn. We have had her smell a few of Skye’s blankets to catch her smell and she hasn’t left Andrew’s side. It’s amazing to see her try to figure out what is going on. I can’t believe how alert she is about Skye’s every move and noise.
*Our Sunday involved as much skin to skin contact as possible.
*She figures out how to get her little hand out within seconds of being swaddled… I just need to up my swaddle game. The kids said she looked like a burrito when they saw her swaddled ha.
*We had our first time alone when Andrew went to pick up Brooke!
*And then she was home! She had the time of her life with my mom and we are so happy to have her home again.
*Brooke is quite interested in everything that Skye does too. She does a good job studying everything.
*Yep, a very good job.
*My mom sent dinner home with Andrew along with undercooked brownies. I can’t even explain how wonderful it is to love food again. Everything just tasted so blah and weird during pregnancy and I’m gladly welcoming all of my pregnancy aversions back into my life. Just in time for the holidays too:)
*Oh, I also don’t think I have ever been so thirsty in my entire life. I am going through this water bottle crazy fast. SO FAR breastfeeding is going well but I’ll write a post about that whole thing on the baby blog soon!
I hope your Monday is fabulous!
What is your run today? I’ll just be living through you for the next little while so give me the details!
What are you looking forward to this week?
Middle or edge piece for brownies? Anyone else love undercooked baked goods?
