Side-by-Side

Aspen // Lincoln
As you can see, Aspen was a bit more skeptical about life on Earth when she first arrived. Lincoln, on the other hand, is more chill. I think Aspen was a few days old when her photo was taken, and Lincoln was about two weeks. So far I don't think they look a lot like each other, with the exception of their eyes.

I still can't get over how much easier it has been for me to transition from one kid to two, compared to transitioning from zero to one. It makes a lot of sense, but I just didn't expect it. And here I am, able to leave the house with both of them and get groceries, or books from the library, or even play at the park with friends. It is so refreshing!

Even with Aspen's stomach bug, I didn't flip out nearly as much as I usually do when she's sick. Yes, I worried about the baby catching it, and Kev and I were super tired from being up throughout the night with both kids, but I didn't have that tightness in my chest that made me feel like the world was going to end. Thank heaven for Zoloft!

And in the midst of our sick weekend, I even booked tickets for us to fly to Maine and visit my parents for a quick summer vacation. WHO AM I?! I think we might be a little crazy for deciding to travel so soon after Linc's birth, but there's really no time like the present. Plus, my younger brother and his family will overlap part of their vacation with ours so I'll finally get to meet my nephew!

These are all things I didn't not think I would be capable of doing post-partum. I didn't think I'd leave the house, let alone the state. I didn't expect to find joy in my newborn, but I can honestly say I do this time around.

  2. I'm so glad this has been a good transition for you, two was hard for me but one was a breeze. It sounds like you've got a happy boy for such a hard pregnancy. Give him and Aspen lots of love for me!
