one week old!
I can’t believe that it’s been almost a week that Connor has been here! This week has gone by really fast! I hope that I can get this whole thing figured out… try to figure out a schedule and a routine that is going to work for everyone. This week has been very good. Luckily, my mom has been here taking care of everyone! When we were in the hospital, eric started having dizziness problems again associated with his inner-ear injuries a couple months ago… what crappy timing! So the first ½ of the week, we were really a sad case for my mom to watch over! I don’t know what I would have done if she hadn’t been here! I know it’s been a lot of work for her. She did all our laundry, has kept us fed and the house clean! Man, I really owe her big! Dad came down on Thursday-I so appreciate them coming! Means a lot to me that they want to have special relationships with each of my children, and that they make a special effort. it’s so much harder when that relationship is long-distance. But, they do a great job! We realized just the other day, that not only is Connor born on 7-7-07, and is the 7th member of our little family, he is also the 7th Grandbaby for my mom and dad… as well as the 7th grandbaby on eric’s side!! Isn’t that crazy!
I am a little worried about mom leaving! This whole pregnancy, when people would ask me how close Capri and the new baby would be, and I would say: 11 months… the response was ALWAYS the same: “wow, you are really going to have your hands full!”… (as if they think that I wasn’t FULLY aware of that). as it turns out, even that prediction was a gross understatement of what it’s like with these 2 little ones, plus the big ones… plus my seriously neglected workload! I think it will take a few weeks to get used to things and make necessary adjustments! It’s so great having kids that can help out! I am LUCKY that way!
