I have a new niece!!!
Kay, um, my 3-year-old just broke out of his room. So I get to go get the screwdriver, turn the doorknob around, and lock him in. You gotta do what you gotta do. It's 10 at night. Way past your bedtime, buddy. And now Sadie is crying because she temporarily shares with Gage and doesn't want to be locked in, but then doesn't want to sleep with me (Ben's out of the country on business) or on the couch. Sighhhhh. I'm seriously considering throwing a sheet up and making her a "bedroom" in the downstairs great room. For reals.
Good times. Good times. See what Beads has to look forward to? ;) No, for reals, there are just as many really joyful moments as there are frustrating moments. It's definitely an extreme experience. Extreme highs and extreme lows. But I wouldn't trade it for anything. And I'm thrilled for her and Spence to start this new phase of their lives. And to snuggle that baby and smell her hair and listen to her cute little noises. And to watch her laugh in her sleep and sleep with her eyes half open and rolling around. Babies are fun.
