Michel went back to work yesterday and so now it's just me managing our clan and household.
I told myself that I wouldn't set crazy goals. As long as everyone is happy and fed then I consider my day a success. So far so good. I even managed to do the washing and did a bit of tidying up. Oh, and I bathed Linus all by myself and he didn't even cry once!
We've been blessed with lovely weather these past days, so that we've been able to spend lots of time in the garden, which I must admit makes it a lot easier to manage our clan!
By the way, the top photo was taken two weeks ago and the bottom one this morning... what a difference already!
Today's my birthday. My first birthday as a mother of three.
Except for the usual birthday ingredients like cake and presents, this time there were other highlights as well. I took a shower with Linus this morning, which was really special and we went on our very first walk. It was lovely weather and it was wonderful to be outside.
Apart from a serious lack of sleep things are going very well around here. Linus is such a sweet, easy baby. He is so soft and pink and cute and cuddly... I'm happy just to hold and watch him all day. Amber and Simon have adjusted very well to the changes too. Simon had a little trouble initially, but he's back to his old self now. It's no small thing to become an older brother overnight!
Look at my two boys taking a nap together... aren't they adorable?!
Ok, just one more photo of Linus then!
I'm amazed at the way he looks around when he's awake. His eyes are so curious and wise... it really seems as if he's absorbing everything. As I said I could look at him all day!
Well, I think it's almost boobtime again and then hopefully some sleep!
