I can't believe it. Felix is now 3 months old. Where has that time gone? I swear since he came along things have gone even faster than before. I can't believe my first baby, my vibrant chatty little boy, is starting school, SCHOOL, PROPER SCHOOL in only days. Time went fast with one child. It's speeding by with two. I feel like the old lady in A Squash and A Squeeze - "It was fast with one, it's speedy with two!".
Most days I feel like I can't catch my breath. Life is one wonderful busy blur of milk feeds, dressing children, brushing teeth, reading books, cooking food, cleaning up, running around, fitting in naps (not mine!), meeting friends and drinking cold coffee. I wouldn't change it for the world though.
Adjusting to having one child was hard and it's been difficult adjusting to the dynamics of two, but it hasn't taken as long to settle into a routine and overall, things have been a lot smoother than I thought they would. I love both my boys more than I can describe and it's a true pleasure and privilege to be their mother, to see them grow and thrive. Nothing I've done in my life makes me as proud as these two people do. I know it's somewhat vomit inducing but in all honestly, motherhood is the most rewarding "job" I've ever had. It's also the hardest.. but if you put a lot into something, you get a lot back.
