Being A Mother of Two

So the first three weeks have been interesting. Good but interesting. The first week went pretty well because my mom was here. Of course two days after she left Jocelyn woke up in the middle of the night throwing up which continued through the next day. It was really hard not being able to take care of her the way I used to because I was having to feed Kentley so often. Which in itself has been a challenge. I think we have it mostly figured out but for some reason nursing is by far the most difficult thing for me physically and emotionally. Four days later I woke up feeling like crap. It was horrible! Thankfully my mom and sister were on their way up. When they got to my house I handed over the kids and went to bed for like four hours. I woke up to two happy kids and a clean house. Where would we be without mom's and sister's :) Their visit seemed to go by way too fast and we loved every minute of it!
Now that I have been at it by myself for a week things have been good. Jocelyn still has her moments but they are few and far between. She is a huge help and I'm pretty sure she is the cutest two year old I have ever known! Kentley so far seems to be a pretty easy going baby. She loves to be held and I just hope we can get on a schedule soon. KC has been amazing and I can't wait for warm weather to get here and stay.

I love this picture of them looking at each other.

My mom and grand daughter number two. She is THE best mom in the world!

Jocelyn having fun with aunt Sami. She loved all the attention.

Jocelyn was so tired but wouldn't get out of the swing. About a minute after this was taken she totally barfed. I think it was motion sickness.

This has been a pretty common occurrence. Jocelyn's baby does a lot of things Kentley does.

The loves of my life! Life doesn't get much better than this :)
