It has not been easy. I knew having two kids would be hard, but I never though it would be THIS hard. I cried for the first seven days because I couldn't figure out how to manage my time between the boys. Aiden was super jealous and I had Dylan attached to my boob most of the day (cluster feeding sucks).
Today Dylan is two weeks old and it is getting easier. I'm mastering nursing and making breakfast, lunch and dinner all at the same time. Yesterday I was home alone with my two boys for a good portion of the day and managed to clean two rooms, do two loads of laundry, make a banana bread and test out a new soy, milk, egg, nut free chocolate cake recipe (still trying to tweak it) and to top it all, I made a pretty yummy dinner (pasta with veggies and meatballs for my husband and "beanballs" for myself with a side of garlic bread)...
Last week I decided to go off dairy because Dylan was showing some skin issues and possible reflux. His skin would turn bright red on his scalp and face and sometimes had little white pimples on his chin, cheeks and nose after nursing. His pediatrician doesn't think it's an allergy but I can't help to worry. He has been a little better so I'm assuming the diet may be working. I hope and pray he does not have allergies, but if he does, i hope and pray even more that we find out before he has a reaction like his brother.
Here are my two handsome men.. It's amazing how different they look (one has blond hair and one has black hair). Love them. Can't wait until they start to play together and torture each other :)
