This will be a short post as baby is napping in the kitchen and will be due a feed soon.
So many things have changed for our wee family in the last two weeks. The new baby has taken over our household and the rest of us have had to adjust to having a brand new member in the family.
Personally, I find change hard and it takes me a while to find my feet. With breastfeeding, playgroup runs, shopping and cooking still my chores, I have felt overwhelmed at times. Plus the baby has had already two growing spurts which left me tired and sleep-deprived.
But help is on the way, my mum will be coming over in a couple of weeks, Emma will be going to a childminder for a couple of days a week from next Monday(which will relieve me of the terrible guilt I have felt over her watching TV all afternoon and playing by herself while I was busy feeding baby, snoozing or just lying in bed, exhausted).
For me, the word of the week is definitely adjusting. It is born in the joy of having a healthy new born, an understanding husband and a sweet daughter who accepts things as they are. But adjusting we will have to do for now. To new routines, to new ways of doing things, to new people in our lives, to the feeling of “not quite enough for now”.
