I’ve been MIA for quite a while now. But I have a good reason.
It has now been a month since we welcomed Baby Paul into our lives. We are slowly adjusting to having a new baby in the house, and another little person to care for. It’s been… Busy.
I have spend much of the last 4 weeks resting, this recovery has been harder than I remember it being with Evey. I’ve had a few bumps in the road that I didn’t have with Evey. At about 2 weeks postpartum I experienced some extremely heavy bleeding and was diagnosed with postpartum hemorrhage, mine seems to be mild compared to things I have read, and thankfully didn’t require hospitalization, but it has slowed down my recovery quite a bit. I think this week I’ve turned a corner and things are finally starting to feel better, but still far from normal. I’m hoping to get the all clear at my 6 week checkup coming up here soon.
With Evey we are working on our patience, helping Evey adjust to not being the center of attention anymore. She has always been pretty independent, but it’s certainly been an adjustment for her too.She hasn’t really been “acting out” but more just not listening and not following directions. But having a new baby is going to take some time to get used to for all of us, and she is doing well I think… most of the time. She loves being a sister though, she loves “her baby” as she calls him.
We are getting into a grove though, things are settling in and I hope to be back to normal soon. Well our new normal as a family of 4.
