We're in baby mode here, which means that other than trying to stay on our schedule and function as a family, there's not a whole lot of other objectives.
A new baby calls for some new iPod music, and one of my accomplishments in the last two weeks was to create a new playlist that we could keep on while I nurse the baby and the big boys color, play, pull off all the couch cushions, etc. I'm happy to share my favorite new song!
Michael is now two weeks old and has been a sweetheart of a baby. He wants to be close all the time, which I'm trying to enjoy as much as I can, but I can't complain, because he has been an easy baby to console. In a few weeks he'll be big enough for his cloth diapers, which I am looking forward to using with him. The title of this post is "Redirect," and that I'm doing. I absolutely LOVE this post by Elizabeth Foss on the subject of cloth diapering. Her thoughts reflect my sentiments perfectly. One of the lines reads "Baby lives here..." and how I love those three words. Yes, a baby lives here, too, and we are so happy for it.
