we interrupt this babymoon...

i've had two full weeks of:

meals+treats+flowers brought in
staying in my bed/pajamas
snuggling my fresh new babe
learning to nurse new babe
sleeping when babe sleeps
wondering what day of the week it is
taking loooong showers
watching new babe stretch and yawn
bathing new babe and lotioning him up
head-over-heels drunk on new-babe-love

my mom/baby catcher/breakfast maker/cupboard organizer/couch snuggler/lukey babysitter/grocery buyer/tea maker headed back home a few days ago. andrey heads back to real work in the morning. this leaves me. and my two kids. for reals. tomorrow. only a few hours away.

lucas jude, who left for a mere few hours a few weeks ago to catch a pine wood derby with his cousins and came home to a new brother is still in a bit of shock. this does not go well at bedtime. or nursing time. or any take care of said new brother time.

the new babe despite my best efforts to quarantine our little bundle has somehow caught a baby cold. this means i will be up tonight watching him breathe. not good for tomorrow morning when lucas wakes up ready to go.

i plan on staying in my pajamas. i plan on not making any plans. not tomorrow. or next week. or next year for that matter. my brains have turned into new-babe-mush. really.

i'll let you know tomorrow if we've survived.
goodnight, loves.


  1. you can do it, linds! it'll be a beautiful, tired, momma day.

  2. You will do great! For me anyway, it is not really harder having two kids but more busy. You will learn to organize your time to give them each what they need. It will be different for Luc but soon, he too won't remember what it is like to NOT have his baby brother. For me it was easy because Tyce is a daddy's boy so as long and he didn't have to share dad too much, he was fine sharing me.

    Good luck with it all! It is is when you will really feel like a mom for real. There was something about having TWO kids that made that feel more real. Kaze has also had little colds this winter. Tyce, Mark and I have had BIG colds so it is a blessing that Kaze hasn't gotten more sick but that mommy milk will help a lot! You are blessed to be able to nurse like you do. I so wish my milk would have stayed in longer!

    Have a wonderful day and just take it easy with your little family! That first day alone is very scary (I had a breakdown the night before). I thought I couldn't do it but I did and so will you! You will be wonderful! You don't know how to be anything else!

  3. I know you can do this. I'll have you on my mind all day offering up little prayers for your survival. :)

  4. you gotta make some plans some time this year! I know it's insane, believe me. Elias still insists on making it hard for me but we're all doing it so we might as well do it together!

  5. oh lindsay! I want to cry I am so happy for you! I cannot believe you have two little tots now!!! :[) Gavin is just precious and I absolutely admire that you had him at home.... someday I too would love to have my babies at home. :) This new creature calls for some snail lovin mail!!! Be on the lookout lady! xoxo

  6. Lin,

    I hope you are doing well. I really want to come by and actually hold and see your little man, so please, let's set up a time when we can get together, because the dropping by bit hasn't been working.


  7. so glad you found me :) I hope all is well with your gorgeous new baby.

  8. I hope you and the baby are feeling better! I love the newborn stage too, I'm so happy for you!
