 I still can’t believe my baby girl is a big sister. She’s handling it much better than I expected and she’s making me so proud. She’s jealous when it comes to the baby’s stuff (blankets, co-sleeper, etc.), but she’s always trying to help. She loves just looking at her baby brother. My heart melts when she lets an, “I love you” or “Don’t cry, baby” slip out.
 Damian nurses about every two hours (sometimes even more frequently) but my milk just came in yesterday so we’ll see if that changes anything. I’m exhausted! Here are a few pictures from his first three days of life…


In what seems to be trivial news compared to other events of the week, I turned 27 yesterday! This makes it my “golden year.” I’m excited to see what it brings. I spent the last night of 26 cuddling with my two babies on the couch. I wouldn’t have had it any other way…
On the morning of my birthday Eva helped my sister-in-law bake me a cake. The rest of the day was spent lounging around the house, with a quick trip to Buy Baby Buy where I bought a new nursing bra, and peepee teepees. People warned me about changing baby boy’s diapers, but I didn’t realize how powerful their little stream is, haha.


  1. Happy (belated) Birthday and Congrats!!! My son never peed on me so here’s a tip- when you are about to change him unloosen his diaper (if you can with cloth) and expose him to the air for a sec. Then cover him back up with the diaper. That way he goes (for some reason the air would trigger it for my son) and you stay clean! Hope that helps!

    Loving all the pics 🙂

  2. Baby D is adorable! So much hair! And you! YOU! You look amazing postpartum! I’m totally impressed that you’re getting back into blogging so quickly! How great! Can’t wait to hear more about D’s entry! (EXCLAMATION POINT!!!) <– it might be time for me to find alternate punctuation, I think! oh man..i just did it again. okay. fine.

  3. Congratulations all 3 of you on the new addition, and Happy Birthday to you (and Damian) and… well, you just all look adorable!
    I’ve been peed on many times, even trying to be careful. haha
