Eva is really taking to the role of big sister. She loves to get a chance to hold him, help us with him and give him kisses on the forehead. I took Eva and Andrew for a walk around Capron Park this afternoon. Eva wanted to push the stroller as well. It isn’t too easy to push a stroller when you can’t see where you are going, but I helped her push it. We had a nice walk, got Andrew outside and Eva got to play on the field.
Allison gave Andrew his first sponge bath at home. He did pretty well too. Didn’t cry that much either. When he was done he had some really funky hair going on and that lip, I started calling him Elvis. It didn’t hurt that he was in sleeper that was too big for him that it looked like it had big wide lapels.
Having a new baby has made me realize that we weren’t quite as ready as we felt. At least I felt like we were much more ready that we actually were. We haven’t had to change diapers and take care of those sorts of needs for almost a year now and it does put you into a false sense of security when a new child comes along. I was off at Target picking up some essentials that I just assumed that we had, there is no reason I should have assumed that since we haven’t needed infant diapers for nearly 4 years.
We got a huge help from my father today. He came by with his lawn vac and cleaned the sidewalks and the yard of most of the leaves that have been piling up. I cleaned the sidewalks and patio three times so far this year but finally the tree is empty of leaves and I’ve been unable to get things cleaned up. So I am very grateful to my Dad for coming over and taking a Saturday to get things cleaned up for us. I can finally be proud of my yard again.
