Life with these two has been so sweet but also tiring at times. I think I got so used to having just Paige around and she is at an age where she has been sleeping through the night for a long time and can do most things on her own so switching back to newborn thinking was a definite change. The lack of sleep I think has been a real challenge for me but I am slowly adjusting to it. I feel like I need to be so much better at spending more time with Paige. Baylor requires a lot of attention since she is a newborn and feedings take up a lot of my day. It is strange that sometimes I miss those days where it was just Paige and I and our little moments together but Baylor brings so much joy into our family and fits in perfectly. Life is funny that way where you always look to the future but you miss those special moments and memories from the past. I have wanted another baby in our family for so long so when there are days that I am super tired or have had enough of the crying I feel guilty for having those feelings since I had to deal with all the hard times with infertility but there are so many moments that I can't believe I finally have this little one in our lives. It is a different stage of life in our family and we are getting used to it more and more and I love seeing how much Baylor lights up when Paige is talking to her and how Paige loves to help and hold her little sister. I think Paige will enjoy it more and more as Baylor continues to grow and becomes more mobile.
I am so lucky to have such two incredible and sweet little girls in my life. They bring me such joy and happiness!
Nate has been so incredible during this transition in our lives! I am so lucky to have him as a husband and a father to our children. I hope that one day Paige and Baylor find husbands that are as amazing as their dad. He has transitioned to having two kids so amazingly. He is great at spending time with both of them especially Paige since I have to feed and take care of Baylor often. He is great at taking initiative in helping out when he can sense that I am at my wits end. Baylor likes to fight sleep and we often take turns trying to get just the right touch in helping her fall asleep. Nate has been so amazing with my slow recovery from having the C-section and doing all that he can to help. He often does the dishes and cleans up around the apartment without being asked to. He entertains both girls so every once in awhile I can get a nap in during the day. He always says thank you to me for making dinner and always knows the right thing to say to me to help me out when I am feeling down. I love that he makes me laugh and that I get to have him by side for this life and for the life after. I am one lucky wife and mom!
Here are so more daily moments with these two cute girls of mine!
We had a couple beautiful days in January and one of them we spent at Dale and Margaret's enjoying the sun.
We are also lucky to have Nate's parents so close and we are over to their house very often. Paige and Baylor are lucky to have such amazing grandparents who do all sorts of fun things with them.
One evening Dale and Margaret came to our apartment and Paige had a make-up store open for them.
I love you Paige and Baylor! You make life so sweet!
