Somehow I am unable to find time for simple things like pulling the photos off my camera or getting the house cleaned up. Yet here I am with five minutes to write something. Unfortunately my brain isn't moving in a very linear direction but I will try to stay as focused as possible.
Life with three kids has been a daily adventure. I am trying to find a good balance of making sure that sometime Jack gets to be first and other times the girls do. I want the girls to know that they still rate but also that sometimes they have to wait. Thankfully by almost five they get it most of the time. We have had some struggles with the girls (mostly Abby) but it has been very minimal.
It feels like Jack was the piece of the puzzle that was "missing" and now it is full. He was destined to be here and it was just a matter of timing. I am so thankful for all of them.
I am still sleeping in short bursts. Jack was sleeping great at first but has now settled into being a "normal" baby and wakes every 2.5 to 3 hours to eat at night. Most of the time he goes back to sleep with little problem... but not always.
Two tubes of triple paste and plenty of A&D have helped the diaper rash. The thrush is settling down and we will continue treating it for 10 days post symptoms. Stopping the medicine too soon is a mistake you only make once.
The girls have only two weeks left of school and I am guessing the end of school is when life is going to get interesting. I will have to find a way to get them all to the pool and the library and all of our usual summer places. I know we won't do it as often but I don't want life to come to a halt because we have a new baby. I guess we are all experiencing the learning curve of a new family member.
