It has felt like an eternity since I have had the brain power to be able to sit down and concentrate on the blog. I really wanted to give a Zoe Life update everyone on what is going on over here with Miss Zoe quickly.
I have missed you all terribly, however I have been working away trying to get in the swing of things and find my mommy groove. It has been a while since I’ve had a small baby and I had truly forgotten how much work they are!
Sure my floor hasn’t been swept in a few days or mopped in probably a week but my baby is fed and growing bigger every day. I have PILES of laundry waiting to be folded but my beautiful little girl is snuggled on my chest most days and I wouldn’t want it any other way! My bedroom has become the place where paper goes to die, I haven’t done my filing for a while but I did register Zoe’s birth! So almost 3 weeks later, we’ve been out several times, had guests stay at the house, had a major water leak and no heat for almost 2 days. I think we are doing well, I’m truly just enjoying this sweet girl and all these cuddles.
I cannot even begin to tell you how different Ava and Zoe are as babies, thankfully I feel as I’m getting to experience the best of two very amazing worlds. I spend most days staring at my little girl in complete awe of the baby she is. They always tell you, that no two babies are alike and it’s so very true!
Miss Zoe loves to snuggle and prefers to be quite compact. She is not a fan of her crib for this reason. Ava was never really a snuggle bug and slept perfectly fine in her crib. Zoe sleeps ALOT.. and sleeps very well when wrapped in mommies arms, I don’t hate this at all! Ava wasn’t so sleepy, she was always just a bit more alert! These are so far just the some of the small differences.
Miss Ava has been dealing well with her new sister, we have not had the screaming tantrum of “send her back” just yet. She has had a few issues with mommy “hogging” the baby and a few “Why can’t she play with me?” One thing is clear, she loves her little sister! I think if I could have changed one thing, it would have been to have spent more time helping Ava understand just exactly what would happen when baby comes. But day by day and kiss by kiss, it’s amazing to see the bond they are growing!
There are a lot of really exciting things going on in the next little while, including a Giveaway so stay tuned, we are making some big changes and you don’t want to miss it!!
