Long time, No see

Hello. I know it’s been forever since my last update. So sorry I’ve been gone so long. I know lots of bloggers not only keep blogging through the birth of their babies, but actually live blog their labor (yo, Bower Power!). I am, obviously, not one of those bloggers. However, I have been staying very busy. Of course, is any parent with a newborn not busy?

Well, don’t want to bury the lead, so let me introduce you to the newest member of our family:

Our Little Lady was born Feburary 12th. Labor with her was completely different than with Lil’ Man, but overall, I’d say it was easier. She is perfect in every way. Surprisingly she was born with medium brown hair and blue-grey eyes — my money would have been dark, dark brown hair and eyes, like her brother. Her hair is getting lighter, but her eyes are slowly turning brown. My family has mostly has babies born with dark eyes, so I’m kinda fascinated with her changing eye color. I love that they look like grey or blue in some light and brownish in others.

Her brother adores her. I’m a little worried he might smother her with love. Literally. Yeah…he can get a little rough or overbearing so we have to keep a close eye on them, but seeing how protective he is over her is really heart-warming.

Unfortunately, we have had some health problems in the past few months. Little Lady had croup and bronchiolitis when she was only about a month old. All of this, plus a possible posterior tongue tie, was hindering her ability to breastfeed and she had some problems with gaining weight (a huge deal when you’re talking about newborns). We spent sometime in the ER. She makes hospital gowns look adorable.

Then, Lil’ Man caught a cough and his asthma started to flare up. Both of my babies were sick. They both were so tired, they fell asleep just about anywhere.

Thankfully, everyone is much better now, but it was a rough couple of months.

During this time, we still tried to get some stuff done around the house. It was tough and sometimes I forget how much we’ve done. We have an awesome California King bed frame in our master bedroom, rearranged bookcases from room-to-room, swapped in new doorknobs through out the house, and reorganized our broom closet with hooks and elfa door shelves. We also had the upstairs rooms and our blood-red laundry room painted to a more soothing palette of blues and greys. Oh, and we were are in the middle of potty training. Whoo hoo!

We haven’t finished the nursery — we have a bassinet in our room still — but we are still making progress and there are lots of home projects throughout the house we’re working on. I don’t know how often I’ll be posting, but hopefully more often than now. As it is, I have to run because someone just woke up from her nap and is demanding to be changed and fed.
