Hi Everyone -- thanks for checking in on us! Life is so hectic but pretty good. Adele is good. She spends the day in daycare or at my mother in law's so I can get my newborn bonding time in with Emrys. Emrys will be 4 weeks old this Saturday and he is doing well too except he's not sleeping very well at night. We had hoped that Emrys being on formula would keep him sleeping longer at night but it doesn't seem to have made any difference in the way Adele slept as a breastfed newborn (which was not good either). At 2 months we put Adele on formula, swaddled her and put her in her crib and she slept through the night just like that! Emrys is in the swaddle and on formula but he's still up every 2 hours, sometimes 3. UGH. Other than that though, things are good. Maternity leave is going by in a flash. I'm exhausted. I haven't lost my pregnancy weight like I did breastfeeding. blah blah blah.

Here are two recent pics of Emrys and Adele. She had 2 costumes this year (one was kinda homemade as PSU cheerleader and the Minnie Mouse I posted last week).

Aww cute!! I hope he starts sleeping better for you, or you might end up like myself with a 14 month old that is still up 3 times a night, hehe

Oh adorableness! Both of them! I hope he starts sleeping better for you soon, I know how difficult lack of sleep can be. Thanks for the update and don't hesitate to share more pics of him here anytime!

I go back to work on Dec 26 (I picked that date because I know the office will be a tomb and I can get caught up quicker than a full house asking me tons of questions). I don't want to go back full-time but part-time work is hard to come by anywhere but impossible at my office. I do want to work a little, I've come too far in my career to give it all up and I think having a balance with the outside world keeps me more level-headed. I am enjoying my leave though. Marika -- are you having a boy, too? Did I read that somewhere?

Yea I have had it all formula fed, breastfed/formula fed, and ebf. They all slept the same. Every 2-3 hours for them all. I hope he starts sleeping better for you.

I am still scared and I live it daily! But honestly, I have not been home alone with the 2 children except Tuesday night when DH stepped out to vote. Believe it or not they both did exactly what I hoped they wouldn't do and that is have meltdowns. Adele had a meltdown because my husband was playing with her and then left. Emrys had a meltdown because I set him down to use the bathroom. I was in the bathroom and both were screaming. This is why Adele goes to daycare or MIL's during the day. I just don't feel equipped to handle a 15 month old and a newborn for 9 hours a day solo.

Weekends are the hard part. It used to be that as a single/newly married, I looked forward to the weekends but now Friday nights are like Monday mornings, ha ha. We have very little support outside of me and DH so juggling the two for 2 days is difficult. I hired a nanny for 2 1/2 hours on Saturdays to stay with Adele while DH and I get out for a bite to eat. Its helping tremendously.

I am not sure if Adele is jealous or not. She might be too little to process that emotion. And again, their crossover is minimal during the workweek. She only seems to notice him when he's fussing.

I am sure most moms handle all of this so much better than me. A lot of times I feel like a huge failure as a mom.

The way I see it is that both your kids are still alive, so you are doing a fantastic job! haha
I'm so scared I will look away for .5 seconds & Savannah will try to pick him up & really hurt him....It's probably best that Adele isn't into him, honestly. Better than the alternative, in my opinion.
That's a great idea about a Saturday sitter...Having two kids that close is HARD & you should take all the help you can get!!

Hang in there Momma...I'm not far behind you, if that makes you feel better & less alone! haha
