I didn't update yesterday. We seemed to have kind of an off day and I just didn't have the time. Scott and I tried to take newborn pics and it was a big fail. This was the best one. We are going to try again this weekend when Scott's not working and we have more time to work with it.
Dawson seems to not mind having another sister around the house. He HAS been super attached to me ever since I got home from the hospital. He will not leave my side for a second. I can't even go to the bathroom without him following me in. ha!
My friend Melissa let me borrow her Nap Nanny and Hollis really loves it but I think Harper loves it even more. She sits in it every chance she gets.
We had a change of guards today at our house. Scott's parents went home and my mom came and is staying with us for a while. I can't tell you how thankful I am for all the help. I had the girls by myself for a few hours last night and a few hours this morning and I was worn out. It's definitely going to be a challenge with two 2 and under. Hollis is SOOOOOOO good and easy and she is sleeping SO great at night (which I feel like God is blessing me after Harper who still rarely sleeps through the night). But Harper is well.......TWO. And she has had a few very rough days lately. I know so much of it is all the company and momma with a new baby and having her schedule way off. But it's been meltdown city. And it's also a huge challenge trying to feed Hollis and keeping Harper under control. So many of you have suggested special "quiet time" baskets for her to sit and do while I nurse. I love the idea but Harper doesn't have "quiet" or "sit" in her vocabulary. I know we will figure this out...........but it's overwhelming to me right now.
As overwhelmed as I feel ................I also feel overwhelmed with blessings! I am SO thankful for my two beautiful girls. As much as I wish I could keep Hollis a precious newborn permanently......I look forward to all the months and years ahead with my girls and I know our lives are just getting started!
