March 26th 2019: Day in the Life

I want to preface this “Day in the Life” with some perspective. This was both an “easy day” because Molly was in daycare, which happens twice a week, and a “hard day” because Jason was gone for most of it. It was also on the harder side because I am on the third day of a head cold and because James is fighting a stomach virus. My life normally has a lot of poo in it, but not quite this much! Haha!

Also, this was a very eye-opening exercise. I am often bewildered with what happened to my day, and lose track of accomplishments. When Jason asked about my day via text, I only mentioned the diaper accidents and not much else but I obviously managed and dealt with a lot! My reason for doing this was that I wanted a record of what life was like right now, since it’s a lot of chaos but also a lot of joy. Things are hectic and tiring and fun.

Oil Sketch of James

Real life James is 11 months old now! He is such a sweetie. He crawls and stands and is sort of cruising on the furniture (like holding the furniture and walking carefully around it) but he won’t really walk if you hold his hands, he just sits down. He is super into taking things out of containers. It’s his favourite!

Hi James, We Love You!

We welcomed James Arthur into the family on April 12th at 4:22am! He was 23 inches long (half an inch longer than Molly, and she was super long!) and 8lbs 8oz. Of course (because what can you expect after a pregnancy like that one?), nothing went as planned. At all.
