At Home

We're trying to figure out the new dynamic here at home. That includes figuring out how the older kids can relate to Leo. They want to be all over him, which obviously won't work. We set up a little protective pen where we can put his rocker. It gives him some protection. They can still see him but they can't rock him wildly while he is trying to sleep.
We also hit Target today. Had to use two shopping carts. Did you know that they no longer recommend putting the car seat in the upper carrier? I didn't either. Anyway, we'll figure it out.
And then comes the car. Getting three kids in is at least twice as hard as two. Especially since one of those seats requires one of us (me) to climb in the back to buckle Relia.
All of these little details. We'll get them, of course. But it's all a learning process.

It is so fun to read about someone else'e adventures in babying (as opposed to doing it ourselves again!) Number three definitely was the biggest adjustment for me. Of course, that was probably because the first two were momma's boys... Congrats again and enjoy the first few weeks. They change more in the first month than in the following 6.

Good luck with it all! I'm sure you'll get the hang of it all before you know it. I cannot imagine getting 3 kids in the car. Ugh! Two is hard enough! Glad you have a protective pen for Leo!
