I am slowly coming out from the land of the dead. This second baby has been harder for me to recoup from than Isaac. In fact the day I got home with Isaac I packed him up in the car and went and watched our church softball game and sat on hard bleachers. The thought of doing that right now sends chills up my spine.
But we are slowly adjusting. My in-laws are here which is so helpful. I really don’t know how people survive that first week without family. My mom was here for a month when I had Isaac and my in-laws are here for a week with Kayla. Then I will be on my own for a week and then my mom will come for 2 weeks. My sweet mother-in-law has been getting up with Kayla in the middle of the night and then all I have to do is nurse her.
Isaac loves his baby sister. He always wants to touch her and hold her. He is showing her how to use all her toys. He also wants to kiss her whenever she is awake. It is pretty cute watching him. Of course he is getting LOTS of attention from Grandma and Grandpa so we will see how he does when they are gone and the reality of having a sister really sinks in.
