Catching Up!

It has only taken me all afternoon (literally) to get this post up!  Seems to be the norm around here lately!! Poor Finn has been colicky and so congested, I headed to the doctor on Friday with a slew of questions.  The Doctor assured me that this is “normal” (Darby must have been an exception because she NEVER cried like this and was never sick!). Needless to say the list of “to do’s” is just gigantic!

Today Finn is 1 month old!

In honor of Finn’s 1 month birthday, I made an extra effort to get a slideshow together of pictures from his birth and a few days after with some of the friends/family that stopped by to meet him!  I didn’t get pictures of everyone (sorry!) but even though, we were so happy to those who did stop by.  With it being the cold/flu season, Finn still has a lot of friends to meet!

One of these days I hope to get up Finn’s Birth Story to share, but seeing as it took me an entire afternoon to get this far – and it’s dinner time – it’s going to have to wait for awhile!

Here I Am!

Things are busy over here, but we are surviving!  After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, colds for every member of our family (including little Finn!), termites in the garage (and who knows where else – real thrilled about that!) and Eric making it back to work – the kids and I are in SOME WHAT of a routine.  Well, that might be pushing it a little, but I like to think so.  Everyday is different in its own way, but I can count on a few things:  Darby will take a nap for at least and hour and a half and come hell or high water I will get myself in the shower at some point!

Regardless of the challenges, I LOVE our family of 4 and wouldn’t have it any other way. Plus, people make it with a lot more kids than two.  Two is totally manageable.  Although MORE manageable when Eric is home then when he is not 🙂 Just saying.

I can not believe Finn is almost 4 weeks old! Where did those weeks go!? He is almost a full month old.  He is a MUCH more fussy baby then Darby was. I don’t think Darby ever really cried unless she was hungry or teething.  Finn is a different story, and it’s been a challenge, but slowly we are figuring out what works to help him .. and what does not!  He is a champion nurser, a booby baby thru and thru.  Back when he was 5 days old he weighed 7lbs 13 oz and when he was a week and 5 days old he weighed in at 8lbs 9oz! That’s almost a pound in a week!  It was relieving to know that all the cluster feedings and power nursing wasn’t for not!

I have a lot to catch you all up on – pictures from his birth and birth story, the holidays and just cute moments in general. Hang in there with me while I get caught up.  I’m not making any promises on when that will be exactly, but it will happen!

For now, here’s a few to tide you over!

I think they look so much alike in these two pictures!
