Well, it has been 2 weeks since we became a party of five & it honestly seems like a lot more time has passed! My blog has been lacking in updates because by the time I sit down at night, I am wiped out! Cheney has made sure that her inner alarm clock works like a charm & is awake every 3 hours at night & eating every 2 hours during the day. I've been a busy mama! (moo.)
I can't really talk about the true adjustment yet of having 3 kids because I've been lucky enough to have had my mom here since Cheney was born! It has been so nice to have an extra set of hands around the house. This weekend the real fun will begin. Ben & I will officially be outnumbered by the little people in our house!
I think the adjustment with the kids has actually been easier this time. I don't know if it is because we have an almost 4 year old or if it is because the boys have each other to play with. Either way, I don't feel as overwhelmed about this transition. Going from 1 kid to 2 kids was definitely a lot harder than I thought it would be. We've had our moments, but for the most part, the boys have been really good! They adore Cheney & want to smother her with hugs and kisses all day long.
We did go to the pediatrician yesterday for Cheney's 2 week appointment and to re-check her heart murmur. The good news is that she has grown a half inch already & is up to 7lbs 12oz! She is actually putting on weight faster than her brothers did...maybe I will finally have a chunky little baby! The not so awesome news is that the heart murmur is still there. Our pediatrician doesn't seem too worried about it because everything else sounds great, but we still have to go see a cardiologist. We have an appointment on Tuesday & Cheney will have an Echo done so we can figure out exactly what is going on.
Bear with me as I find a balance in our new normal. It is crazy & hectic but I know I will get there eventually!
