It’s already the second month we’ve been taking pictures of our two children together! It barely feels real that our little one will be 7 weeks tomorrow. Seems like only yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital, but at the same time as if she has always been with us. We definitely found it easier to get back into our normal routine after the second baby. When our oldest was born, it took us a lot longer to get back to “normality”.
I will never get enough of watching our two children interact with each other. Our littlest one is just as obsessed with her big sister as the other way around. When the baby cries, our oldest will be the first by her side stroking and whispering to her baby sister. It absolutely melts my heart. She has taken to her big sister role like a duck to water and I couldn’t be any prouder of her.
Yes, we’ve had the odd jealousy issue, but nothing too serious. Our baby girl is a hungry little one and especially over night is nursing for quite some time. I know it gets frustrating for our older one to stand back and wait until the breastfeeding is finished before I can concentrate on her again, but all in all, she is coping really well with this.
Before I started writing this post, I’ve looked back on January’s pictures. It astonishes me how much our baby has changed already. I really need to make the most of these early months. It won’t be too long before this one starts crawling, talking, walking…
We very much enjoyed half term week this past week. Not having to rush to get everyone ready for the school run was brilliant. Although we had quite a busy week planned, we took things easy and made sure we also got a lot of family time in. I treasured having both girls at home with me, but unfortunately tomorrow it’s back to reality with school starting again.
Hopefully these are the last pictures we had to take in the house. With spring now well and truly on its way, we will be able to venture outside a lot more.
