Lotus: Hanging out with dad while he's playing her songs on the piano.
This week has been one of challenges for me. It happens to be that my job really needs me to fulfill my hourly quota for the week and that's been an adjustment. I haven't had to adjust myself to a true full time schedule since she's been born, but I really have to buckle down. Even if that means working 6-7 days a week. It's just what has to be done. My blessing comes in the form of me being home with her. It's worth it.
Lotus is having difficulty with her schedule. She is ever-changing (as babies often are) and that is throwing me for a loop. I have never had to adjust to a baby and she is testing all of the patience I've ever had. Oh my... sometimes when she cries I have to clap as loudly as I can to get her to stop for a few minutes. Having a baby is tremendous.
Of course, I have been thinking about baby numero dos. It will be a few years off anyways, but we have already talked about names, the idea, and I think we are both on the same page. Lotus will need a friend growing up. I love my sister and hope that Lo will get the same opportunity to have that with another little human.
