Life with Three

If you missed our little announcement a couple of weeks ago, Baby Knox is here!  I still haven't sat down to write his birth story yet, but I wanted to share a little about how our past two weeks has been.

I was a little nervous about being a mom of three little ones under five {at least for two weeks til big sis turns 5}.  To be totally honest with you, it's been MUCH easier than I ever imagined.  He's been a pretty seamless addition to our family.

He's a great baby.  For the first week, we barely knew he was there unless it was time to eat.  He's been a little more vocal lately, but he is still a very happy baby.  He's an awesome sleeper, waking just once to twice a night to eat.  And then he goes right back to sleep for a few more hours :)

Big bro, as Gray now likes to be called, has amazed us with how good he is with him.  I can definitely see some jealousy in Gray's actions towards us, but he is awesome to Knox.  He just wants to lay with him and hold him.  He cannot wait until Knox can play cars with him or ride quads :)

The first night that we got home, it was around 9:30 or 10 pm.  So, of course, our kids were super sleepy.  Gray just kept asking if Knox could lay by him and we just kept telling him that he could later. As soon as we laid Knox next to Gray on the couch, Gray was out like a light.  It was so precious!

Sister is smitten.  She just loves her baby brother and is so patient with him.  She is such a big helper...getting whatever we need her to for us or "watching" him while we wash our hands, etc.  If he cries, she is right there by him saying, "It's okay.  Sissy is here."  She sings to him in the sweetest voice and he usually stops crying :)

Don't get me wrong...we've had a few chaotic moments.  Like when I was changing Knox and he peed in my face, then proceeded to poop on the couch when I was swapping out the diaper.  Gray was supposed to be in his room trying to nap and he came out and started running around and wouldn't listen.  Once I changed Knox, changed my clothes, and cleaned up the couch, Knox was screaming at the top of his lungs and wouldn't stop until he got what he wanted...to eat!  So Gray got a "get out of jail free card" until Knox was done eating.  You can only do so much, right?
