I first have to say what a joy it is to be a mother of 3!!!! Little Anna is just a precious little gem......she is so laid back, sleeps very well, and rarely cries. She is just so content, alert, and a true, beautiful sweetheart. When she's swaddled up and napping, she is just toooooo cute!! I can't help but call her my "precious little bundle." She has such a sweet demeanor and presence......Oh, I'm in love!!!!
Ava and Luke can't get enough of their new sister.....they truly love her, but being only 2 and 3 years old, they don't quite know how to handle her and are unaware of how rough they can be! They try so hard to be to gentle, but it can be tough for them, at times! They do love giving her kisses and hugs, though.......there will never be a shortage of those!!!
They are definitely struggling a little with having a new baby in the home, and having attention diverted. They are quite a bit more "needy" and wanting of every second of mine and Mark's attention, which I know is completely normal and natural. Juggling that is a little tough right now, but I know it will get better and easier. Mark has been taking them out on outings every day, which has been a wonderful thing----not just to give me some alone time and time with Anna, but to give them time alone with Daddy.
All in all, things are going really well!! We feel so excited and so blessed to have added to our family! God is good!!
So, since I never posted pictures of Anna's room, fully done, I wanted to post a few! Since the room is so small, it's hard to get a full picture of the entire room, but hopefully you'll get the idea! It's the perfect little room for her! We love it!!!
