I am now a Mom of 2 Boys!
3 Weeks ago I gave birth to our second son, William. He's already showing his family traits too, started before he came out...because he didn't want to! Stubborn as all the rest of the males in his bloodline...
William was due on December 15th, the day came and went and on the 21st I got a call to come be induced. After a very painful labor (I wanted the epi, but because of car accident, the Dr's were unable to hook me up so I felt everything) I gave birth to a bouncing 9lb 11oz baby boy..

So now I'm 3 weeks into being a Mom of 2 and Oh My were people right. 2 kids is way harder than one! I have a 4.5 year old son named Ben, and he is a character! Already an avid gamer, reader and speller, he is very bright and self sufficient, thankfully. I don't know what I would do if he needed my every attention right now.
My sleep is sporatic right now, though Wil does well through the night (usually wakes 3 times between 7pm and 7am) he doesn't sleep much through the day. He has a lot of wakeful hoursj which leaves him cranky and teary eyed. And at 3 weeks, the kid is already teething, his front 2 bottom teeth are budding right now...not great for a nursing momma!
So I find myself trying to find a happy medium between my online life, my two children and the mounds of housework that I have to do. I'm always looking for ways to make my life easier, though right now I'm not quite organized enough to say I'm doing well. Chaotic would be a good description of my household right now.
I look forward to my new life as a Mom of 2, I just hope I can keep them happier than they look in this picture. ( I tried to upload a picture but it took forever.....you can see their pure crankyness here.
