What I've learned in Three Weeks......

It's been three weeks since the most handsome little man in the world has graced us with his presence! Here are some things that I have learned: 

*All of the things I thought I had forgotten about taking care of a newborn immediately come back as soon as you see their little face! 

*The fear that I had of becoming a mom of two was really silly!  I'm actually LOVING it and I have to say, I think I'm pretty good at it!

*No matter how you tuck the little guy down under, he WILL figure out a way to pee out of the side or the top of his diaper at least once a day!

*Speaking of tucking, I have a lot to learn before I figure out the proper tucking technique! :-)

*Boys are opposite of little girls....lol....I know I already knew this, but really, having Nathan is a totally different experience than we had with Cady!

*Boys can get yeast infections.....who knew.......

*Everything you did with your first child does not always apply with the second!  All babies are different, just because it worked with the first doesn't mean it will this time.

*Getting back on my medicine was the smartest thing I have done since he was born!  A happy momma makes for a happy family! :-)

I think that's it for now. 

Until next time!

I smell Apple Cider and Doughnuts!!

This past Sunday Leif and I took the kids to Gull Meadow Farms to enjoy a family afternoon at the pumpkin patch!  I LOVE fall weather (even though it was an insane 80 degrees in Michigan!) and all the activities associated with it and I secretly LOVE the pumpkin patch more than children do! :-) Lol  But I also LOVE seeing Cady's face while we pick apples and look for the perfect pumpkin to color!  (We haven't started carving yet....I'm not sure I can handle that with a 3 year old yet!) So, here are a few pictures from our wonderful family afternoon!  I hope everyone else is enjoying Fall and what it has to bring!
