Sweet Baby Days

Sam is fed and sleeping, and Will is off at Grandma and Papa Dana's until tomorrow. So, I figured I should take some time, and share a bit about my sweet new baby boy. I will eventually write out Sam's birth story. Although, it was not quite as exciting as his big brothers, the end result was just as wonderful!

We are all adjusting pretty well. Sam's arrival hasn't seemed to effect Will at all in negative way. He loves holding baby Sam, and pretty much just goes about his day like normal. He spent some time with Dean's family yesterday, and, like I said, is with my family today until tomorrow. I love having him around, but little doses are all I want to handle right now.

Sleeping at night has been just fine so far, although I know it will eventually get harder. I am feeling much better then I was after having Will. My insides are still a bit achy, so I am trying to take it easy. It is very tempting to get stuff done around the house though.

Dean has been a wonderful help with housework and taking care of Will, on top of being back at work.

Samuel is doing great. He is a tiny little thing compared to Will, and I love it! Sleeps all the time, and is nursing pretty well.

Adjusting to having a second baby is definitely easier, so far, then it was having the first. With your first, your whole life is turned upside down. No longer can you do whatever you want, whenever you want. Everything is new: Nursing, not sleeping, planning your day around their schedule, and the worst.....hearing them cry. Today I took a shower with Sam in the bathroom screaming the whole time, Will running in and out peeking behind the curtain, and I just went with it. When Will was a newborn, I would have skipped the leg shaving, and possibly gotten out with shampoo in my hair to calm him down.

It has been a wonderful week to just stay home, watch the pretty snow fall from inside, and cuddle with my husband, my big boy Will and sweet baby Sam.
