To say this time has been easier would be an understatement...Carson is a piece of cake compared to Caroline (so far at least). She sleeps more at night, is easier to occupy, and has a very laid back personality (no, I have NO IDEA how that happened). I am thankful God gave us a "hard one" first so that we could know how easy this one really is ;).
Daytime has been WAY more enjoyable since we have Alex here on the weekdays to help...I've been able to rest a bit more, get errands run so those don't take up our weekend free time, and it's been wonderful having her here to help with the girls. On the other hand, Jeff's travelling ways for work will commence again soon, and I am terrified of how I am going to manage to do it alone with two wee ones. With that being said, I am still planning on going back to work part-time in the next few months so life will change drastically yet again, but I think it will be great for me AND for our family.
Let's face it...having a baby is tough, but it's also the single most exciting, profound, emotional, and overwhelming sense of joy I have ever felt and I know we are extremely fortunate that we get to experience this "season" once again. I thank God for giving us another sweet child to love.
Thanks for listening my friends. OXOX
