Thought I’d give a little update on life with 2 children. There’s no food here. There will be food featured on these pages soon though.
Amazingly Anwen has been with us for 4 weeks already. They’ve flown by. My heart has never felt fuller.
Theo’s so gentle with Anwen and Anwen is still more chilled than Theo was. She’s also a booby monster. She can go for 2-4 hours between feeds but invariably the 4 hours between are never at night and they tend to be random one-offs. Bummer. But at least I know she can go for that long.
I’ve also never felt so exhausted. Life is full-on. There’s no respite. Before Anwen arrived I was used to having my evenings once Theo had gone to bed. Now childcare is 24/7. I’m trying to embrace it as I know the days of newborn cuddles are over so quickly. And Theo is at such a great age. He knows his alphabet and colours ,and can count from 1-10. He repeats every word he likes the sound of and his understanding is far greater than I’m aware of.
I love this picture of Theo as it somes him up so well. Busy and smiley. I love that the background is in focus and he is a blur because he just cannot keep still; and his massive goofy grin.
This week I’m with my parents as Theo has come down with chickenpox. Then Tom’s off for the next two weeks. It is so nice having an extra pair of hands to help with the two of them. Hopefully I can catch up on some sleep over the christmas period and harness my creativity in the kitchen once again…
