Kjel's birthday was on Friday. Happy One Week, sweetheart!
To celebrate, we did a lot of this:
Steven goes back to school/work tomorrow and I am a little bit terrified of having two kids on my own. I have a constant worry in my heart that I'm not giving Gage enough attention. I also have no idea in heck how anyone showers with two + kids. How do you do it? Hope that they both happen to be sleeping at the same time? But Gage doesn't take naps until the afternoon... so should I resign to showerless mornings for the rest of my life? Also, Kjel has the latch of death (I'm working on figuring it out with a lactation consultant, but it's not an easy fix and I am in toe-curling yowch for about 45 minutes every two hours. Heaven help me.)I would really appreciate any ideas on how to get her mouth to open a little bigger.
Don't get me wrong: this is bliss. I LOVE having KIDS! With an S! Plural! It is heaven. The logistics are a little hard to figure out, but the feeling is 100% joy, 10% exhaustion, but it's the good exhaustion.
I think my subconscious is starting to suffer from sleep deprivation, though... this morning I had a dream that Steven took both kids swimming while my brothers made a HUGE picnic lunch of macaroni and cheese and rocks... I spent most of the dream trying to clean the chlorine (which was bright blue) off of Kjel while explaining to my brothers that people can't digest rocks.
