More Annoyed than Amused

One month old!

Posted by parsingtime on October 19, 2014

Dear N,

You are one month old today! So far you seem to be navigating your world with aplomb. Especially the part where your sister lovingly yells in your face to stop crying or to watch her do something or smother you with kisses.

You inherently have to go with the flow because unlike your sister who got to keep an exact schedule, you have to go to swim lessons and naps are interrupted by school pick up. You do however get the benefit of seasoned parents. We aren’t learning on the fly like we were the first time around. So there are positives to not being the first born.


You also will get to do things a lot earlier than your sister. Eventually this might apply to dating or a later bedtime but for now it means you have already been to the zoo! Your sister didn’t go until she was walking I think. You slept through the entire thing but that’s not the point. You got to do it before she did so you win!

Yesterday as I packed away all your newborn clothes and switched you over to the 0-3 month collection I thought to myself that this is my last newborn, my last baby. I need to remember that in the middle of the night when all I can think is just “effing burp already (20 minutes to burp in the middle of the night feels like an eon).”

We all think you are pretty great, you have completed our family. We are glad you are finally here.

Love, Mommy
