Life with 3

I’m still in shock at the thought of having 3 children. How did this happen?

Somehow, don’t ask me how, it’s all working out. Baby G is a dream, very calm and peaceful. If he’s fed, he’s content and sleeps most of the day.

Izzy has been giving us a run for our money and has had a hard few weeks. She is very emotional, always on the verge of a meltdown. I didn’t think it had anything to do with the baby as she LOVES him. She kisses him all the time, can’t get enough of being around him, squeals with delight at the sight of him. But she’s been having lots of meltdowns, tantrums, is very angry, and cries a lot, so subconsciously she is struggling with this new person taking away some of her attention. Plus, since I am exclusively nursing, Baby G is always with me, making it harder for her.

Fortunately, Izzy’s RIE teacher (who is wonderful!!) has been incredibly supportive and gave me excellent advice to support her through the experience.

As Gryffin gets a bit older, less delicate, and more interactive, I am certain she will be happier and happier with this new addition to her family. She loves Nathan; he is her anchor. She revolves around him, takes amazing care of him, is incredibly gentle with and protective of him. Soon I am certain she will be the same with Gryffin.

Life with 3 is ….. busy, beautiful, perfect, hard, intense, and oh so rewarding!
