Life with 2!

Jade has now been here a week!
I can't believe it's been that long already!
I swear we were just in the hospital,
but then it also feels like she's always been here.
She's a sweet little baby!
And super easy-going!
The only thing she doesn't like is getting her diaper changed.
I mean full on melt down mode for diapers hahaha

She is known as:
Squish, Squishyface, Jadey, Jadey Loo Roo Hoo, Baby Sister,
BABY JADE (that one is usually yelled in excitement).

I mean look at that squishy face!!
You can see it right?
Yeah, she's cute!

Rory adores her little sister.
I was legitimately worried about her having to share mommy and daddy
and all the people she loves so much.
But honestly,
she is amazing with her sister.
She loves on her and makes sure we know when she needs something ;)

On Thursday Rory refused to take a nap,
oh you terrible twos can just bite me,
and then Jade was dozing after a nice bottle,
when suddenly I felt a thump on my other shoulder.
Rory had completely fallen asleep mid-sentence
against my arm ;)

Not the most flattering picture of me but oh well!
We let her sleep for 20 minutes cuz we want her to sleep at night right?
Jade just kinda chilled through the whole thing
and when she woke up she looked around with her big eyes straight at her daddy ;)
Therefore Daddy had to snuggle with her,
I mean you can't say no to those big eyes!
Then of course big sister wanted in on it.
So Daddy became the jungle gym ;)

He's always gonna be the fun one I have a feeling hahaha
And he loves it.
He's wrapped around these little girls' fingers.

Friday we had Jade's newborn dr appt and I had to take both girls
by myself to it.
(Andrew had to go sign severance papers - more on that in a second)
First off, I didn't think 2 kids would be that hard.....
but I was also 3 days post partum so my muscles are still like jelly.
Carrying an infant carseat plus trying to keep track of big sister
in a parking lot was definitely an interesting experience.
And when Jade started crying, Rory started crying out of sympathy
and terror that SHE would have to get seen by the doctor too.....
But once Rory calmed down it was all good.
Jade wasn't convinced that it was ok though and continued to cry/scream.
Rory at one point looked under the cover
and said
"Baby Jade, you need to calm down. It's ok. No more cry."
Hahahaha I died!
She's always saying things like that,
which proves that she DOES hear what we say even if she ignores it hahaha
I mean, that's good right??

Overall, this has been a pretty smooth adjustment so far
and I'm hoping that there will always be more good days than bad days ;)


  1. You might have already said this somewhere, but how far apart are they? She is sooooo cute!!! Congratulations!
