Life has been a little bit crazy, we have been getting ready for baby sister to come and can’t believe that she will be here a week from Thursday. Things have been changing and evolving quickly in our family to prepare to have two littles in our home. Zach and I decided to pull King out of preschool a month early where he will be going back in June for summer preschool. This will take so much stress off me with having a new baby. We thought long and hard about what to do and decided that where his program is May 17th that it wasn’t realistic to have him and a tiny not even a week old newborn at a preschool performance. He also was able to go this year as a bonus where he technically wasn’t old enough when the school year started so he will still have two more years of preschool at the same school.
I have been washing and folding baby clothes galore and love this part of having a newborn. There is just something about tiny little baby clothes that makes doing the laundry more enjoyable. I also have been trying to get ahead on working so that I can take some time off when sweet baby sister comes and still have content going out for you babes. Everything will be scheduled and ready to go so the only thing that will probably go quiet for a little bit is my Instagram. It feels so good to try to get ahead of the game even though it is a little bit stressful right now.
I’m working hard to try to prepare King for what life will be like for him with a new baby. I keep telling him all the things that I will need help with from a special big brother helper. Things like getting diapers for sister, helping to feed her, talking to her to calm her down, etc. He seems to be a little bit excited sometimes about getting to be a helper so I will just try to keep talking it up and hope for the best ha. We did make a paper chain last week for him that he gets to break off a piece of the chain every night before he goes to bed and he thinks that is super cool so that was a mom win.
We can’t wait to have another little one in our home as terrified as I am at the same time to have two littles to keep alive let alone happy. I know it will all work out, I mean, there is no going back at this point so it has to work out right? I know that there will be an adjustment period that will be really hard and that is okay too. I just can’t wait to have the sweet spirit of a newborn baby in our home again.
