Our sweet Goldie Mae is TWO MONTHS OLD! Seriously, time is flying more and more with each of my babies, and it is breaking my heart. I told you guys last month, that one thing I would be working on is monthly round ups of what we loved the most each month. So on top of our update on sweet Goldie, I am also sharing the favorite items for 2 month olds.

2 Month Update on Goldie
Sweet Goldie is doing so well. She is easily our smiliest baby of the crew, and she lets out little squeals. She is pretty content, but does love to be held, or worn in the Solly baby wrap. Overall she is sleeping super well – going down in her bed rom 7-10 pm. We then wake her up for a quick feed at 10, and she sleeps until roughly 5 am most days. After that super early morning feed we put her back down in her own room, which has been great for handling the other kids in the before school chaos!
She loves to be sung to, to be held, to be worn, being rocked in her chair, and basically anything that gives her attention…and being the youngest in a 6 person household means there is no shortage of attention
2 Month Postpartum Update
I definitely finally feel back to myself physically, and finally just got my first workout in. Things definitely feel different from day to day emotionally right now. There have been lots of changes to our day to day lives, and I am just learning to navigate the new, and find balance. I am a SUPER structured mom, so the older she gets, the more of a schedule we are on, and thus the better I am doing.
For me the hardest things right now have been: learning to juggle work and a newborn, and juggling my attention with all the kids. I get asked a lot ‘how I do it all’, and the truth is that I don’t. And the moments I do get a lot done, I basically feel like I’m drowning. So just remember that just because things look put together, doesn’t mean it always is. This time of year is SO busy for me work wise, and I am trying to find balance, but that doesn’t always happen easily.
And the kids – there is always something with someone, and there is always attention needed by someone, so although I think we will settle into a new normal, this season is very busy, and I think most of us are feeling that.
Overall – things are good. But they are also hard! haha
