Felix rolled from belly to back the other day. The first time I didn’t see it, but saw him on his back when he’d been on his belly. So I put him back on his belly and he pushed over again. Six weeks old. This is the stuff that people ask and I can’t remember. Writing it down here for posterity;)
He hasn’t done it again but I chalk it up to the fact that it’s hard to do anything when you devote most of your waking energy to fussing/crying Jk - he’s sort of been calmer the past 2 days. Sort of.
How ironic that the boy whose name translates to ‘happy’ is the least happy of all our babies…

Would you apply for a job that has these requirements:

• Standing up almost all the time

• Constantly exerting yourself

• Working from 135 to unlimited hours per week

• Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary

• No vacations

• The work load goes up on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and other holidays

• No time to sleep

• Salary = $0

Probably not, but many people already have the job. Watch this until the end to find out the other name for the Director of Operations. I promise it’s worth it!

Dad too! But yes, moms. Also, lots of moms, and dads, do this while having an actual other paying job. 👏👏👏

Today was super warm and insanely windy.
The kids and I went to our little park in the morning to swing and color and play ice cream store (this started years ago with Lars and persists. The kids sell me ice cream through this plastic wall with a hole in it, and I pay them with sticks/rocks/grass). A little buddy was there with her nanny and my kids loved them.
We went to Tanzy’s to see the ladies and Bee peed on the floor there (second time this has happened there:/ good thing they love us).
Lots of pee accidents today. I came home from the gym (was gone one hour) and there had been many. This potty training thing has come back and bitten us in the ass. No fun. And half the time she asks to wear a diaper now. Sometimes she will use the diaper “like a pull-up”, sometimes not.
We’ve been oh so social lately - people are out and impromptu play dates happen in this lovely weather. It’s nice. But also tiring (luckily for the kids too, not just me).
Felix still sleeps most of the day and cries a lot when he is awake. Especially in the lovely evening hours when kids are eating, having their bath and the bedtime routine. Pretty sure little dude is colicky. Which seems to be an umbrella term for “your baby cries a lot and isn’t happy. Just deal with it” so that sucks for many reasons, the highest of wh in is that it is so totally heartbreaking to see him so distressed.
Lars is eating tons lately. I realized yesterday that he is noticeably inches taller than his one “buddy boy” - this wasn’t the case a few months ago!

Beautiful day for an April Shower for a beautiful woman! This baby is so loved already!
