I haven’t posted a lot about the adjustment from one baby to two. To read my blog the last six weeks, you might think our days are filled with nothing but lovely scenes of sweetly sleeping, beautifully dressed little girls. Ha! Today, Cordelia was a little on the fussy side and refused to be set down, and Vera somehow managed to get nearly every surface of the house sticky due to the consumption of one jelly bean (how is this even possible?). It has been a joyous time, but also a huge time of adjustment. Now that we’ve reached the six week mark, things are starting to level out to an extent.

It’s still crazy around here most days! We’ve had to adjust to caring for two babies, and honestly it’s been harder than I thought it would be. God has given us lots of grace in so many ways as we’ve adjusted (family to help us, friends to provide meals, a flexible work schedule for Tad, etc.), and we are grateful for that.
Like I said, some things are starting to level out. We’re now only washing cloth diapers every other day instead of every day (which we did for three weeks). Cordelia is starting to sleep better at night…what a blessing! Both girls are also on the same napping schedule, which gives me an hour in the morning to get a few things done, as well as a couple of hours in the afternoon (where I often squeeze in a nap too!). Grace upon grace!
We are so blessed to have our two sweet girls (and would love many more!), and God is growing us and teaching us a lot through this time of transition!
