It’s been one month (on the 23rd) since our little Knoxy joined the family and what a wild month it’s been!
Knox is a dream. He is the absolute sweetest baby. From the beginning he’s been a great sleeper (please don’t jinx myself) , for the first 3 weeks he was pulling 3-4 hour stretches. Now, almost 6 weeks, he sleeps at least 4 hours at a time. He usually goes down around 9, wakes up around 1am, then again at 5ish. At his two week checkup he was back up past his birth weight at 9 pounds 15 ounces. Everything checked out and he’s super healthy! He’s eating great (clearly by his weight lol) usually every 2-3 hours during the day and then the 4 hours at night.
The first couple days home were hard. Not with Knox, like I said, he’s really easy. However, Natalie was more of a challenge. I’m almost glad I expected her to be, so I was a little prepared, but it was still so difficult. She LOVES her brother, She’s always asking to hold and cuddle him. Her attitude only changed when it came to me. There was so much tension between us.. I know sounds silly, being that she’s two but for real. It’s was really hard on me and definitely some tears from both of us. She’s doing so much better now. Now it’s just normal two year old sass and attitude 😉
Rob’s went back to work after three weeks and having two kids at home alone is no joke. I know you moms of 3+ are probably laughing, but people aren’t lying when they tell you going from one to two is hard. The kids have napped at the same time every day since we brought him home, so I do get about two hours in the afternoon to myself. (hallelujah) I finally feel like I’m getting the hang of it. I’m able to have some time with both kids individually, and some time to myself everyday. But the days FLY by. I feel like I blink and its bed time.
I can’t believe it’s already been over a month. Part of me feels like it’s been years, and the other part feels like a couple days. I know time is going to fly by even faster now. I’m soaking in all the snuggles and newborn things (currently sitting here with spit up all over my shirt) because I know they won’t last and our little guy will be a toddler before we know it.
We love you Knox!
Until next time,
