Our baby is already 4 days old and I’m falling in love with him more and more each day. I know it’s early, but so far he is such an amazing baby (and getting more handsome by the minute!):) I keep thinking I’ll have time to sit down and really express my thoughts about the past week. At this point though, I’m not doing much of anything other than feeding, changing diapers, trying to help Jim with the boys, and occasionally get a second of sleep (that includes overnights)! It has been a complete whirlwind and we are still in the middle of adjusting to this new, fantastic change. My biggest stress is being able to give each child the attention they need. Garrett is a full-time job and it’s been a struggle to balance that, with what the rest of the family needs too. Plus on top of that I’m still trying to recover and not do too much. So needless to say I am still a little frazzled! Still, each day seems to get better and I know it will be fine once we get into the swing of things. The boys (Gabe and Grant) are handling the change great… for the most part. There have been a few meltdowns but overall they love to help and pitch in. It’s so cute too, they LOVE calling Garrett by his nickname “Gare-Bear” and it just fits him since he’s such a cuddly little teddy! Here are the latest pictures as of today, we are taking them fast and furious so I’ll be posting more daily!:)
Hang in there – it sounds like you are all doing great in dealing with adjustment of going from 2 to 3. Don’t forget to update your profile in your blog too 🙂 I am so happy for you guys and am keeping you in my prayers. Thank you so much for the pictures – he is such a cutie – he is a big boy too – how does his birth weight compare to Grant and Gabe?
What a precious little face! Such a blessing fresh from Heaven. I LOVE love LOVE the picture with all 3 of the boys…definetly one for the coffee table…or birth announcement!! 🙂 So sweet and the boys look like they love their new little buddy!
Brooke I remember you from Y100! I can’t believe it…another BEAUTIFUL little boy! I am very happy for you and Jim and it looks like BIG brothers are enjoying your new little bundle as well!
I hope life keeps rewarding you with amazing gifts! You were always kind to me and my family, and by the way my oldest, Cody, will graduate June 8th! I am a bit stressed over it, but I know he is destined for great things, he has such a kind heart!
Gods blessings to you and your precious family! Trudy Fond du Lac
