I can’t believe this little guy has already been in our lives for a whole month (why couldn’t the months I was pregnant have gone this quickly?).
Kai is a ridiculously calm baby. The kid barely cries. He can move his head from one side to the other during tummy time and track objects. He smiled for the first time on Tuesday. He regularly sleeps for 3-hour stretches at night (last night I got 4.5 + 3.5!). He eats ALL. THE. TIME. and I am learning that true nursing on demand is so much easier than trying to watch the clock.
At this point with E, I was in tears every day. It all seemed so hard. But now I know that babies are actually pretty easy. They just eat and sleep and poop. It’s the threenagers you’ve gotta watch out for. (It might also help that breastfeeding was much less painful this time.)
Evan has easily adjusted to being a big brother just like he easily adjusts to everything. Ben and I are both home this summer so he is getting a lot of time with daddy.
I think we’ll keep Kai.
Extremely late but very-very genuine: congratulations! I cannot believe I missed Kai’s birth. I love the name! And look at him! He seems quite tall? (Or perhaps that’s because Pim is below average (Dutch) length). Anyway, you sound pretty relaxed I must say. I hope all four of you are doing well, and spending a lot of time cuddling.
