Gobble, gobble!

November 26, 2011

For Thanksgiving this year, we didn’t travel. With a 4 week old baby and the nasty cold we have been passing around, we decided it would be best to keep everyone home. Because I don’t eat turkey, Devon decided to make pasta with turkey meatballs. Nothing traditional about it, but it was delicious. I made a chocolate pie and some cranberry bread an we enjoyed a quiet day at home… well as quiet as a day can be spent with a 3 year old and a newborn. Kaela helped with the cooking and Kyle pooped a lot, because that is his favorite thing to do. Maybe we will start our own tradition… minus the pooping.

Whirlwind

November 23, 2011

Sometimes there is just too much to say. Sometimes life is just too amazing to put into words. I have been busy soaking it all in and trying not miss any precious moments. Kyle has turned our world upside down, but in the best way possible.

With Kaela, it took me a little while to really bond with her. The stress of dealing with a newborn for the first time and the shock of sleep depravation made it really difficult for me. I don’t remember the exact moment it clicked with her and she no longer seemed like a stranger to me, so I guess it was a gradual thing.

With Kyle, it was instantaneous. I was in love from the very first moment he was put in my arms. I smelled his head and kissed his cheek and I was head over heals in love with that little boy. It’s funny, because most people know that I was really unsure about having a boy. I was used to girls and just thought I was meant to be a mom to girls. He is not a great sleeper, but already a charmer. He has me wrapped around his tiny finger. His appetite is insatiable and he is constantly making noise. He grunts and hiccups and has more gas than I ever thought humanly possible.

Time is going by way too quickly and I wish it would just slow down so I could have more time to smell his soft baby hair and squish his puffy cheeks. I want to freeze time so I can remember every moment that my breath is taken away by how unbelievably lucky I am.
