Nighttime {NOTES}

To my boys:

photo-1-(1)Chandler {CHAN MAN} I feel like you are adjusting to the fact that you are not an only child anymore. I barely remember what it was like without your brother here, so I am sure that you are feeling the same way. Last night, before bed, I asked you if you remembered what it was like before Marshall was born and you said, “When he was in your tummy? Then I went to school and then Marshall popped out of your tummy” and we talked about coming to visit the hospital and what it was like to meet Marshall. Our talks before bed are rare these days due to Marshall’s feeding schedule, Daddy normally has to put you to bed, but I cherish the talks and bed time stories that I do get. Some other things that I cherish are the days that we do not have to go to work or school, how you collect rocks & sticks on our walks, and how you find “beans” everywhere . . . you call the little round balls from pellet guns “beans” and you honestly do find them everywhere, I do not even know how that is possible!?! You’re growing so fast and you’re a wonderful big brother.

Marshall {MARS BAR} I cannot believe that you are already almost 5 months old! You still manage to leave me thinking “I wish I could read this baby’s mind” on a daily basis. I’ve been working really hard to get you into some sort of schedule, just so I know when you might be hungry, wet, tired or bored . . . before it was all just a crapshoot & I tried all of the above every time you cried. We’re doing a little better each day. You are also nearing the end of a mental development which left you clingy, crying, refusing food, extremely fussy, crying, not sleeping longer than 2 hours at a time throughout the night, not taking any day naps, crying . . . and did I mention you cried a lot! This mental development is predicted to be completed in 3 days, so we’re going to celebrate on Friday night if that is indeed the case!

Sleep tight little ones!


Your Mommy ❤
