I know there are probably lots of moms reading this who have already tackled and mastered the art of managing two (or more!) kids each day. I would love any and all tips, tricks and survival tactics you can share (drop me a comment, email, whatever). Like, how do you ever manage to feed yourself or go the bathroom?!?
Emme has also decided to make things even more interesting now that her "baby brudder" is here. She has always slept past seven AM, but she has decided in the last week that she wants to be out of bed shortly after six. Conveniently, this is also usually just after Will has nursed and decided to return to his restful slumber. The best part of all this is that Emme has also figured out how to open doors this week. Now, when she gets up shortly after six, she opens her bedroom door and runs down the hall screaming for her "baby brudder". I'm thinking of getting her an alarm clock like this one recommended by my blogging buddy, Anna. Anyone think this will do the trick? I'm hoping it's just a phase, though, and she'll get back to normal soon!

Does it sound like I'm complaining about having two kiddos?!? NAH. I'm loving every single sleep deprived second. They are such a blessing and I trust that in time I'll find the inability to feed myself during the day or use the bathroom alone a blessing, too. I'm also beyond happy this post is about "normal" life adjustments after bringing home a baby. Yes, life is kind of feeling normal...and it's such a miracle.
