NEW MAMA OF 2: LESSONS LEARNED

For the past 5.5 weeks since baby Sadie came into the world, I feel like I’ve been living in a new mama vortex. With nursing every 2-3 hours throughout the day and night and chasing after one of the most energetic toddlers in town, every day seems to morph into the next.  Even the second time around, the fourth trimester is such an exhausting blur! Today, I’m excited to share what I’ve learned so far as a mama to two, as well as some of our favorite photos we snapped of our family when we first came home from the hospital.  These photos make me melt and I can’t believe how much bigger Sadie has grown since we took them!

I can’t believe how quickly time is flying and how big Naiya is already getting. She is six weeks old this week and she’s already almost ten pounds! Even though she’s not coming even close to sleeping through the night, I’m savoring every minute with her because I know how fleeting this time is.  I’m so appreciative I’m able to have time off from work to focus solely on her and it already breaks my heart to know that after our little maternity leave bubble is over, our fast-paced lives will most likely pick up again.
