Spring at Last?

DenaApril 6, 2015

We’ve finally gotten through a couple of weeks without snow. Hooray! I’m hopeful that Spring is finally upon us. It hasn’t been warm exactly, but it’s been warmer. I’ll take it.

Last week we took Marina on her very first outing to the park. The ground and ponds are still frozen up here, but a short drive down the mountain, it’s a bit warmer. The pond is almost thawed, the ducks are swimming, and there are tiny buds on the trees. Such beautiful sights to behold for my winter-weary eyes!

We’ll be in shorts and t-shirts before I know it, and I’ve never been so excited for a change of wardrobe in all my life.

Happy Monday, friends. I hope that you had a lovely weekend. As for me, I’m slowly making my way through the maze of being a mama of two. I am really spoiled with having M. home at the moment. He’s been taking great care of Roman while I adjust to life with a newborn.

Gratefully, Marina is the most darling baby. The challenge that I face with her is the same challenge that I faced with Roman — she never wants to be put down. The beauty of it is that if you’re willing to hold her all day, she’s as happy as a pig in mud and never makes a peep. (What a dream!) Of course, however, holding an infant in your arms all day (& all night) isn’t the most practical thing in the world.

I find myself exactly where I was when Roman was newborn — bending to her every whim. I just don’t have the heart to hear that little cry, not yet anyway. This time around, I’m trying really hard to embrace it, even at the most challenging moments. It simply doesn’t last and there will come a day — far too soon — when I will give anything to hold my baby in my arms all day & night.

    Ahhh Lyla never wanted to be put down either! And I never used one of those slings, wraps, or carriers (I should have!) Lyla only would let me put her in one of those rock and plays, and not for long. Marina looks so so tiny and adorable in that stroller!!

    Just like my wife!! I think before the baby even made a sound she was up and ready for action! This was carried through to our second child. I eventually gave up trying to be the tough parent. As you can well imagine it ended up with a very crowded bed!

    It goes by so quickly so enjoy the cuddles. My youngest has just turned 5 and is far too grown up.
