Henry's early days
The kids are good at helping with him. Ezra likes to come hold him first thing in the morning, often. This is a good opportunity for me to take a shower or get dressed--maybe even get my teeth brushed (please tell me I'm not the only mom out there who realizes about the time her husband comes home at the end of the day that she never got around to brushing her teeth??). Caroline is great at burping him while I work on supper or setting the table for me while I have to feed him. And Nora is my "run and fetch" girl all day long. I'm not sure how I ever took care of a baby without all these helpers! Not to mention that I'm getting royally spoiled by special folks bringing suppers and treats for our family. It's a special time in life, that's for sure. And Henry, how does he help? Well, he usually starts out his night with a 3-4 hour stretch of sleep allowing me to get into a quick deep sleep. Without that stretch I'd be pretty worthless.
So far Henry's early days have been a bit hectic, but fun!
