We’ve survived our first week as a family of 4! A big “thank you” goes out to Grandpa Jim and Grandma Barb for watching Emmett for a week so Ryan, Miles and I could get adjusted at home and to my husband for doing EVERYTHING at home to help me while I recovered from the surgery. I’ll post Miles’ birth story in a couple days but I wanted to share some of the photos that I’ve taken since we’ve been home (spoiler alert: there are a lot of Miles sleeping haha).
Everyone has been asking how Emmett is adjusting to being a big brother. Generally he is pretty indifferent to Miles but I think he’s starting to understand that Miles is here to stay. Emmett will point at Miles and yell “bay!” And last night he waved goodnight and blew Miles a kiss which was super sweet. Today he looked like he might hit Miles with a wooden spoon, so there’s that haha. We are very careful to not leave the two of them unsupervised – Emmett is so little himself that he just has no idea what’s inappropriate to do to a baby!
Miles wakes up like clockwork every 2-2.5 hours at night to be fed. Thankfully both of us can fall right back asleep after a feeding but it’s still a tough adjustment from being able to sleep through the night!
