7 week update and pics...

I am so sorry that I have been missing around here lately but life has been sooooo busy! It's quite the change to go from 3 to 4 especially with a toddler in the house and an online business to keep up with! On top of that my husband is still in the middle of corn harvest so I haven't been getting a lot of help. We definately went through a bad stretch with Markus being super fussy and not sleeping... frankly I'm exhausted.

Markus is my crankiest baby of them all and must be held or nursed ALL THE TIME! He still isn't sleeping well at night and for the last 7 weeks I have been getting about 2-4 hours of sleep (had 6 straight hours two nights ago for the first time). When he is sleeping I have to run around to take care of the other kids and do errands... what a struggle it is.

It also sucks that I have to drive about an hour just to get anywhere since I live in the country so on top of the struggle to get out the door by the time I get to where I'm going he's usually awake again and fussing. I HATE to baby wear but I actually ordered a moby and am dying for it to arrive... he loves the baby bjorn but I hate it. He's very content if I'm wearing him around the house Smile

I had my 6 week pp check today and all is well... looking forward to getting active again and losing the baby weight. I'm sorry I've missed out on so many threads but I've tried to keep up with reading while nursing... it's just been hard to post!

Here are some recent pics of the kids....

Oh my goodness!! Those are some adorable pics. TFS!! I love the ones of him in his car seat smiling. Sorry he's being so fussy. Hopefully your moby will solve that problem soon!

Oh no I'm so sorry you've been having such a hard time! Your children are absolutely beautiful! Does Markus have brown eyes too? I'm such a sucker for brown eyed babies :). Probably because I have a few of them myself hehe.

I bet the moby will be a lifesaver for you. It's SOOO much kinder on your back than the bjorn. KUP on how it works for you.

I hope that the moby helps make everything easier for you, and Markus settles down soon. Your entire family is beautiful!

Aww, cute pics! He's adorable (as are all your kiddos). I have a fussy boy myself so I'm glad to hear the moby is helping!
