Fun Times

Being the mother of an 8 year-old and a newborn presents lots of interesting dichotomies each and every day. 
  • The 8 year-old only listens on rare occasion while the newborn seems intrigued by everything that emits from my mouth (smiling, speaking, laughing, singing - even when totally off-key). 
  • The 8 year-old has an opinion (often negative) on most meals served while the newborn is fascinated by all things puree (thankfully, she doesn't seem to be a picky eater, but her sister wasn't either).
  • The 8 year-old finds bath/shower time to be just this side of a punishment while the newborn giggles freely at each and every bathtime.

But at the same time, it's like they are one in the same...
  • Each lights up when the other enters a room (I have a feeling these two will be thick as thieves one day).
  • Each seems to outgrow clothes faster than we can buy them.
  • Each finds comfort in sleeping in close proximity to me.
  • Each makes my heart melt.
