WOW! The past 2 weeks have flown by in a gigantic blur! I'm exhausted in every sense of the word...frazzled beyond any frazzling I have ever experienced...and yet I could NOT be happier! I've been changing diapers constantly and juggling between feeding Garrett and feeding Gage and fitting in some playing time for the wound up two year old boy and somewhere in there getting us all cleaned up so we don't stink! Our nights have been steadily improving! Thank goodness for a baby who wakes up only ONCE a night! He is such a content little guy! Gage was actually keeping me up more than Garrett but I'm happy to say that the past few nights he has slept all through the night! Yay! And you know, I haven't actually cooked a dinner since before Garrett was born! I'll have to come up with something good once I finally hit the kitchen again! I'm so thankful for all the help I've had! Matt has really stepped up his game this time around! He's made dinner, cleaned, taken Gage out with him, given me an AWESOME back massage and accompanied me to doctors appointments! Thank you babe!!! Anyways...so I'm loving being with these 2 little boys all day! Gage absolutely is crazy about Garrett! I think he gives him an average of 30 kisses a day! He runs for the pacifier when he hears him cry! He gives him an extra little push in his swing when he thinks it's going too slow! (which mom is kindly trying to stop) He wipes away his milk mustache when he's done eating and brings him extra blankets when he's snoozing in the bassinet! Last night while I was cleaning up dinner he really surprised me! Garrett was sleeping in his crib and I THOUGHT Gage was playing in his bedroom...well I walked down the hall and lo and behold, Gage had climbed his cute little hiney into the crib (not a small task) and was sitting in there rubbing Garrett's head and "singing" to him! It was precious! I'm going to have to keep that door locked from now on when Garrett's snoozing though! I just love being their mommy! It will be so fun for them to grow up so close together! For the most part Gage has really adjusted well. There are a few episodes that I'm pretty sure are due to him not having ALL the attention on him, but those are becoming less frequent...yay!
