I knew bringing a baby home would be a challenging transition for my firstborn but I was not prepared for it to scramble him into an unrecognizable ball of screaming, hitting, toy snatching naughtiness. For weeks there was nearly nothing we recognized in our little boy and Joe and I were exasperated and sad at the same time. Of course, we knew (hoped) the phase would pass but man, it is difficult to see your son morph into something you really don't like. While I can't say we've come full circle, we're starting to see glimpses of the old #jaspermagnus and it gives me hope that we're heading in the right direction. This #momoftwo thing is hard!
We are in the final week of Ramadan which will be marked by Eid al Fitr, the end of fasting and the completion of the Holy Month. Muslim holidays depend on moon sightings so we await the official announcements but we do know there will be a public holiday next week. With Eid and school letting out and the mass exodus of expats that follow, airports will be bombarded. While some respite from the heat would be nice, I'm happy to stay put for a few more weeks.
Newborns and the phenomenon where time simultaneously slows to a crawl but also passes in a flash. #esmeleila #5weeksold #andahalf #adenandanais @adenandanais
34, covered in kids. We celebrated with cupcakes and champagne (and plenty of toddler tantrums 😳.) Thankful for health and family and all of your good wishes.
