Well Hello Again!

Hi friends!

It has been a while since I dropped in and updated you on my new life as a momma of 2!

I am really tired. Lucy is a dream baby, easy going and sleeps really well! Miss Violet, however, is the lightest sleeper, so if Lucy cries, both girls are up :) I have so enjoyed spending so much time at home with Lucy. She is just the sweetest, cuddliest baby. I feel like she is an old soul ;)

Violet adores her sister and is not jealous in any way of her sissy. She is, however, struggling with all of the changes in the house. But, she loves to hug and kiss her sister. We have been having lots of lessons about being gentle and not hitting Lucy in the soft spot :)

Nathan is my rock. He stays up with Lucy sometimes so that I can get a good night's sleep a few nights a week. He is upbeat about our new family life, and makes the transition seem easier. I love my man so much!

I have been struggling with feedings. I can feed her for 1.5 hours and she still is not full! My doctor said to supplement her feedings with a bottle of formula so that she will keep gaining weight. I am going to try and stick with breast feeding for as long as possible, but am feeling rather discouraged :(

And, now that Gingiber is back open, I have been SO busy, and perhaps a bit over-committed. I have The Little Craft Show coming up on Saturday, as well as a BIG secret event coming up on Monday. I will spill the beans Monday morning, but just know it is going to make my December SUPER busy!

Thanks for still coming by and reading the blog. A big THANK YOU to all of my online friends who have guest blogged over the past 2 weeks :)

I will get back into the blogging routine very very soon.

Talk soon,
