Little M 4 years 6 months, Little E 2 yrs 7 months

It is daunting to think next month my mom is home and I am wrangling the two boys myself again. Both, but especially Little E has taken to my mom and he will miss her a log I think. He was crying last night at bedtime for her (she was holding the baby and couldn’t go to him though).

Little A weeks 7 and 8

Summer school break is over, meaning I will actually have some time with computer starting this week! Woot!

It’s hard to believe Little A is already 2 months old! The third time around, the newborn time is flying by. It probably has to do with just how much we had to do with moving to a new apartment and the boys being on break (it is nonstop when they are both home).

A surprise is her hair is already growing back! When she started to lose some hair on the top of the head, I thought it would follow Little M — bald until 1 yr. But after losing a bit off the top in the first month, the rest is staying in place and hair is already growing back.

Little A Weeks 5 & 6

We finally got internet up in the new place last week, and we are still doing crazy unpacking while having the boys also at home. Its been a busy two weeks! Of course after nursing Little A in the wee hours of the morning, I couldn’t fall back asleep again, and had a chance to finally put up her update. She has graduated the 6 week mark! It’s hard to believe it’s already been 1.5 months since she was born. The time flew by this time (we had so much going on)! Continue reading

Little M 4 yr 4 months, Little E 2 yr 5 months update

Just because there’s a baby around, doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten I have 2 other kids!! Sure, I am the food source and baby-bed for Little A at the moment, so I am less involved with the boys. But I am hoping that as Little A needs me less, I can get back to doing stuff with the boys more. I also need to be cleared by the doctor next week before I SHOULD engage in any rough play with them, so there.

The boys are enjoying the new baby, although a bit too roughly sometimes, but there has been no jealousy with them yet. Sometimes, especially Little E, insists that I do something for them, but other than that they have not been clingy.

The big memorable event in the last month was that Little E dislocated his arm >.< It ended up being reset and no missed school at all, but scary when it happened because he was holding his arm and crying every time he moved it. Also had to do waiting rooms at both the pediatricians and the hospital (he ended up in the emergency room) before the surgeon fixed it. At least it all worked out in the end…

Little A Weeks 3 & 4

Little A is 4 weeks old. It is our last week in the old apartment and it is a bit sad to leave it after 3 years.

She will have her first doctor visit with our pediatrician for the U3 on Friday, although she has already been there for Little E’s visit before. We also had our last visit with our midwife before she’s on vacation, so things will be quite for a couple of weeks for checkups.

Little A Week 2

Little A is 2 weeks old, and it already feels like a lifetime has gone by. We are settled in at home, and unfortunately, M had to go back to work (although he also worked through his “break” when Little E was born — some things never change).

She has had her 3rd midwife visit and all looks great! The umbilical cord is off, she is gaining weight like a champ (although not as quickly as her brothers, ha) and has had her very first bath. I envy her — but I will take a LONG bath after the 6 week OB visit clears me.

First week of motherhood: Then and Now

We’ve made the great milestone of birthing our last child. It feels like the end of “young” adulthood in a different sense than graduating, getting that first job, or even having the first child. So a bit of reflection on the experience of the first days of having a new baby, then (Little M, Little E) and now.

3rd C-section, first week

I thought I would do a whole post about the c-section experience, especially as I didn’t do that with the first two.

Last week I had my 3rd, and last, c-section. It was different because this was planned, meaning we arrived at hospital calmly with my mom, M and Mrs. T, got settled into the hospital room, and waited a while before the whole thing took place. Nowhere as chaotic as the other two where I labored first.

Little A Week 1

Little A is here — born on 20th June, and already with us for a week. We arrived home from hospital Saturday.

I hope to have time to do a weekly update for her, but with the 3rd one, it might be that time will be tight and I won’t have a chance to update every single week. But I shall try ^.^

Little M 4yrs+2 months, Little E 2yrs+3 months update

It is hard to believe we have two little boys at home instead of toddler and baby. Both boys are active (a little too active) and running around, and Little M is now old enough NOT to have scrapes on every knee and elbow (although two weeks ago he fell flat on his face in kindergarten and had a raw nose/upper lip for a week).

We now anxiously await the 3rd little hand-grande that will be tossed into our daily routines in about a month. yay!!
