Hello readers! Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t written much lately but I promise I have a decent excuse. On September 1st my son Eli Joseph Jewell was born!
We initially planned on naming him Lukas Everett as you may have read in my ‘Picking a Name For Your Baby‘ post but my husband and I had a change of heart.
He is now 2 1/2 weeks old and my daughter is 15 months which has been a bit of a challenge. It seems there’s never a moment where one isn’t either hungry or in need of a diaper. The house is not as clean as I like it and some days I feel like I should be able to accomplish more.
However, I think it’s easy to beat yourself up when you’re a stay at home mom especially with two so close in age. You’re constantly torn between giving your children the attention they want (and deserve) and keeping the house looking at least reasonable. Many times I put down the broom or mop or whatever to play ball with my daughter when she brings one to me. I can always finish cleaning when something else catches her attention.
To wrap things up I just want to say that having kiddos close together is pretty chaotic to be honest but it’s worth the cold coffee and sleepless nights. Rosalie absolutely adores her brother and will shower him with love any chance she gets and it’s so cute to see her trying to figure out what this new addition is.
Thanks for reading! I’ll be posting more when I can.
