As I write this I have hot water heating up on the stove for a warm cuppa on this gray day, hoping I can get in a few words to acknowledge this online space of mine. Both boys are napping (I actually think my 3 year old might be awake, but he hasn't come out of his room yet) and I decided I'd rather spend a few minutes sitting down with my blog than cleaning my bathrooms.
Little Arlo will be 6 weeks tomorrow, and I just can't believe how quickly these first weeks have been. I have never been so tired for such a long period of time (I was able to sleep when Rafe slept as a newborn, and he was a phenomenal sleeper to begin with)...I feel like it's never ending finals week, except without the exams and stress. But the exhaustion and feeling a bit overwhelmed at times? Yes, that is accurate.
I wish I had a more exciting post, but really, I just want to say that I am still here. We haven't been going on a lot of outings lately, mostly because of the sheer amount of rain we've had these past two months. The temperatures are slowly ebbing upward, and some tiny flowers are appearing on trees. I can't wait to experience my second spring here in England...spring and summer are just absolutely gorgeous! Hopefully in the next month or two I can start running again, and I'll be able to take my boys to the country park as well.
Until next time!
P.S. The photo above is the first one I've been able to get of the two boys together. Can't wait to have many more!
