Colin will be 6 weeks old this coming Friday! He is adorable but the newborn schedule is not. The days fly by and I never seem to accomplish all that I set to do. My heart is especially sad tonight because I don't have more time with these two cuties:
We've had a busy couple weeks because my Mom and her bf came to visit from New Brunswick. They were here a few days and two days later my sister and her bf arrived. They are still here and are leaving Thursday. :o(
I love my kids but I find myself yelling so much more. I am not being the mother I want to be right now. I look forward to when I don't have to nurse a baby so often or soothe him when he's fussy. These precious older babes play well together but do fight. I can't handle it when I'm tired or busy with the baby and can't take the proper time to discipline and talk to them. I raise my voice to get their attention rather than going over to intervene.
I want to ONLY see the joy in all my kids little lives right now. I pray for that daily and throughout the day. I was praying for that earlier and was doing great.... Colin sleeping in his swing... Vienna and Lance were playing well and I was getting the dishes done. Then I saw Vienna at Colin's swing after she turned the music on and he was awake! I freaked at her because I tell her just about every day to stay away from Colin when he's sleeping so I can get stuff done and to always ask permission before doing that sort of thing. I don't want to be so crazy. *sigh*
This little boy may be time consuming but he is oh so precious to me. He started smiling at 3 weeks and cooing/talking at 5! Last week he started looking at the mobile on his swing. I love watching him discover his world.
That is the latest 'round here.
