We soaked up our second week together with lots of family time, a few excursions to the gym, swimming lessons, the mall, the science museum etc. There was a train exhibit at the science museum that Squish LOVED.
Little Miss is doing well. At her weight check last Tuesday she was back up to just above her birth weight. She eats pretty much constantly, which is exhausting, but despite that, I’m so grateful breastfeeding is going better this time around.
Yesterday, hubby went back to work. It was so nice to have him home for two weeks and there’s no way I would’ve survived without him. He changed a million diapers, entertained Squish for hours and so much more.
I survived my first day alone with the two of them but am excited that today my parents are coming into town for the holidays!
Have a great holiday everyone!
