You know what parenting two kids is? It’s constant…non-stop, sometimes wonderful, other times not so wonderful constancy. It’s a perpetual motion tending to both of them on my own and I have two easy (so far) kids. The hardest part is when they tag team me at 5:00 in the morning. Kaili has been waking up super early and it only seems to happen when Shane isn’t home.
Averi is almost 6 weeks old and is different day to day. She eats about every 2-4 hours during the day, at night its anybody’s guess. I try to be consistent putting her down around 8:30-9:00. Some nights she wakes up 3 hours later on.the.dot, and others she will go a nice long stretch waiting until 2:00 or 3:00am. The latter is happening more often and it’s dreamy.
When she’s awake, she wants to be snuggled. A little tummy time here, a little swing time there but then its into my arms. Put here in the stroller or the car and she passes out like a frat boy after a kegger and she will stay asleep.
Since she is an easy traveler we have been getting out a lot on the weekends, car shows, festivals, wine tasting and lunches.
Considering Averi should have only been here 18 days ago, It’s been nice to be able to enjoy summer a little longer than I had expected. Soon it will fade away and Fall will be peeking around the corner.
One thought on “The Constant”
I love hearing about Averi and big sister, Kaili. What an adorable baby and she looks so healthy. I love her chubby arms and legs. Of course Kaili is beautiful too and a good help—no? Sometimes it’s not so easy to share the limelight!
