2 Under 2

Check out my $100 Visa gift card giveaway on my Giveaway page - a winner will be drawn on Monday and then I have ANOTHER giveaway to announce on Monday!

So life has been a little hectic lately. Good - great, but hectic!

I feel like we are really starting to get into a routine though. And I only have a little over a month left to say that I'm a mom of 2 under 2, so I need to document this!

I'll be honest. I had my expectations of what 2 under 2 was going to be like.

This isn't exactly what I pictured in my head:

I call this smooth sailing.

Not that having an infant and a 22 month old is a cake walk - it's not. But in my head I was going to be bringing home another baby like Brayden - when we brought him home he was on medication for reflux and he was a zombie. He literally would stay awake 24/7 and scream the entire time. I had him down at the pediatricians office every other day. I had to watch his weight, monitor his diapers and meticulously track all of his feeds, not to mention that all of his bottles had to be thickened to the perfect consistency otherwise he would aspirate them into his lungs. That's a lot of pressure for a new mom.

This time I brought home what my friends are telling me is a normal baby, haha. He sleeps. He eats. He dirties diapers. Then he sleeps some more. It's amazing.

And the cherry on top is that Brayden LOVES him. He adores his brother. He makes sure he has a blanket, he offers him his binkie if he is crying, he lets me know "Mommy, baby cry! Brobee cry" every single time Brody makes a peep.

So 2 under 2 is not exactly what it was cracked up to be - it's a whole lot better.
