Boy, have I been busy! 3 little girls under the age of 4 can keep you on your toes.
This new transition has been a little tough for me, more then the transition from 1 to 2. From Raychel to Oceana was actually pretty easy. I adjusted to having 2 real quick! Now, 2 to 3 is BUSY, and to be honest some days can be overwhelming. There are times when they all want something at the same time. Raychel will want me to play with her, while Oceana will want me to fix her a snack or get her some juice, while little Madison is crying because she is hungry, and the cycle keeps going till bed time. Some times these days can just get to me and I feel overwhelmed, specially, when I don’t get much sleep at night.
Madison is an OK sleeper. Oceana was actual the best out of all three of them. Oceana slept for 4 to 5 hours straight the first days/weeks then she went to 6 to then 8 hours! Now, she is at 12! Madison on the other hand sleeps for 3 hours then wakes to eat and sleeps for another 2 1/2 and wakes again to eat, and it just keeps going like that the rest of the night. So, during the day somedays… like i said… can be overwhelming. All in all, I know its just a season and it will get easier in time, and I am beyond happy to the mommy to these 3 precious girls!! I cant believe God gave me these girls to watch over and raise them!
On another note… I never realized how much I can do with just one hand! I will be breast feeding Madison while changing a diaper, changing Oceana or Raychel’s clothes, putting the girls their shoes on, lifting Oceana up, txting, typing, getting snacks/lunch for the girls, and feeding myself. Talk about multi-tasking!!
