We're still around

Don't worry...we're still here. We're just trying to adjust to life as a family of five.

It's truly amazing how much you can forget about having a newborn in one short year. I thought since it hasn't been that long since I had the twins that life with William would be a breeze. I was wrong. Sleepless nights and post-pregnancy hormones do a number on you. Ugh.

In reality, William is a really easy newborn. Cole and I had just gotten used to handling the twins who sleep through the night, hold their own bottles, play by themselves, don't spit up, and when they fuss we put them in the bed and they go to sleep. William does none of those things.

Plus, I know how to read the twins' cues. I know how to figure out what they want and need. William is a HUGE mystery to me. Still. After three weeks, I feel like I should know a little bit more about him, but I'm still clueless. Life with him is a huge guessing game.

I hate guessing games.

I know we'll figure each other out eventually, but we're currently in the phase of newborn-dom that feels like it will never end.

Stay tuned for more posts including

The twins' first birthday!


And more about this little guy, including a birth story.
