One Week Down

I have survived my first week as a mother of two!

I was actually really worried about this. I'm not sure why it scared me so much, but during the last month of my pregnancy I was constantly wondering how in the world I would manage two little girls. Thankfully, I have Tyson home from work right now to help with the adjustment process, but he still has full-time school so I have long stretches of time at home without him. It has been a very busy week, but we are getting along just fine and I think that we just might make it.

Charlotte had her first real bath this week. She was very unsure about it at first, but then seemed to decide that it was fine and has enjoyed them ever since. She takes her bath with her big sister and Lily loves having her there.
Speaking of Lily, she has been sillier than usual this week. She has been harassing Oscar quite a bit. Good thing he is such a patient pooch.
She has also been "testing" the baby gear. She keeps climbing up into the swing and reading her books.
And here she is in the bouncy chair checking out one of the baby pacifiers. She doesn't suck on the pacifier, she just chews a bit. Good thing because we weened her off those things 8 months ago and I don't want to have to do that again.
Lily is such an attentive big sister. She loves her baby sister and always wants to hold her hand, or kiss her forehead. She probably gives her several dozen kisses everyday and she is not one to give away kisses.
I'll leave you with a picture of my sweet baby girl sleeping in her bouncy chair. We love having her in our home!
