This is HARD!

Remember I said having two kids wasn't too difficult?  Well it is.  It's all about having two *needy* kids at once.  In the last week, Ella, the most UN-needy kid I've ever met has become super needy.  I guess she is finally reacting to Everett, and instead of jealousy, she has become needy.  She wants me to hold her all.the.time. while we're at home.  And if I'm feeding Everett, she tries to sit on my lap with him.  It's very overwhelming when Everett is crying for milk, Ella is yelling "hold me mommy!" and I'm trying to cook my quinoa fried rice for dinner all at the same time!  I'm kind of loving all the extra hugs and cuddles though. :)

I'm really savoring this newborn time since it's my last, but I have to admit, I can't wait for Everett to be able to sit up and be a little more independent!  Still, I can't resist this newborn face!!!

By the way, don't ever try to go to Ikea by yourself with a baby. Especially if you have 8 million things to buy. Seriously. Don't.
That's Everett behind the 12 baskets, four storage boxes, paper organizer and rug.


  1. Haha, I could have told you that about Ikea. I tried it too and it was impossible. I just walked out empty-handed and came back the next day. Impressed by your ability to actually buy things!!!
