Since Llewyn has been born, a lot of the time I spent doing things with Rosalie is now time I spend holding, nursing, changing, rocking Llewyn. I’m learning how to balance both little ones so each one gets special mom time and fun things just for them. It is so easy for the day to just fly by and you realize you’ve basically done nothing except nurse, change diapers, kissed little rolls and chins, and everything possible to comfort a needy baby, which is definitely something! and in my eyes, the perfect day… not sure how good that is for my house, where my dust bunnies are probably making there own dust bunnies…<we’ll talk about those guys later> It truly is amazing how much you can get done in a small amount of time after you’ve had kids. It use to take hours, to get the house cleaned, and now, I can do it in half the time.((it’s also amazing what you can get done when they nap together: folded eight loads of laundry, CHECK, cleaned the bathroom, CHECK, prepped for dinner, CHECK, painted my nails, twice, CHECK, watched water boil, CHECK, patiently waiting for babies to wake up because you’re getting bored and don’t know what to do with your time now, CHECK!!)) I’m going to talk more about tricks I’ve learned that make life a little easier in future posts!
Rosalie really has adjusted well having to share us with a sibling. Remember, she was the only child and grandchild on both sides. We really try to brag on what a good big sister she is (even when she tries to use Llewyn as a Barbie jungle gym) and how much she helps me throughout the day. A few weeks ago, we decided she could start taking dance classes, something she’s wanted to do for a while now, and she is LOVING it. It’s really great for her to have her own time and her own thing to look forward to each week. She wakes up Thursday mornings and say’s, “happy dance day, mom!” guysssss…..she melts my heart!!! I thought she would be nervous the first day, a couple weeks ago, and be shy like I was as a young kid…(righhhhhtttt) but golly, she surprised me! She got out there like she had known everyone her whole three years and danced like she had been doing it since she was in the womb, which she did in fact… It amazes me how much she’s taken in in just three short weeks. She seems very focused and is taking this dance business very seriously. I’m so proud of the big sister she is and the little girl she’s becoming!! I hope she reads this when she becomes a teenager… I hope I read it too! So, what’s cuter than little girls in pink tights and tutus? Little girls dancing in pink tights and tutus!!! Here are a few photos.
Sorry for the blurry ones, its hard work wearing a baby and taking photos of little girls dancing to the little mermaid!!
I told ya, doesn’t get much cuter!!! Have a blessed labor day weekend!!
love, a renalds
