the last 24 hours have been LONG. the newbie basically screamed, nursed, burped, and farted till 4am, when he FINALLY pooped, nursed again, and passed out. matthew and i pulled shifts until then. and this time around, i'm finding it's WAY easier to let him go his way w/ the baby. to just let go and get some sleep while matthew walks the floor with him downstairs. something i had trouble with when a&b were itty.
the big boys, of course, were both up at 6am sharp. OY. so at 9 i called my neighbor and asked her if she wanted to come over, visit the baby, and then take my big kids away so we could nap. they got playtime w/ thier best buddies, we regained our sanity levels. perfect.
had a short visit w/ some family this afternoon but we've mostly just been hanging around. which is nice. and since the big boys were up early, we're hoping they'll go to bed early.. do that we can, too. sam has been calmer today... my milk came in and his tummy hasn't been so cranky. so cross your fingers that we all sleep tonight. =)
becky posted pics of sam here - SO loving them. definitely looking forward to scrapping them... eventually. =)
