Will you say a quick prayer for our family today? Today is my first day back at work, which is going to be a big adjustment after eight weeks of maternity leave.
Matthew has both kids all day for the next two weeks before school starts back up for them, so he needs lots of prayer too.
Things on my mind:
Adeline: Adeline is much more attached to me than Elias was. She loves to nurse and isn’t a huge fan of a bottle. We had Avent bottles, but switched to Tommee Tippee, which she likes a lot better. But she has never had more than one bottle in a day, so I don’t know how today is going to go for Matthew. She also hasn’t really gotten the hang of the paci, so often has been using me as a paci (which is not good and won’t make things any easier)! I am only 15 minutes away, so if I have to come home, I will. Pray she eats well, naps well and just does great with her Daddy.
Elias: Elias has a really special bond with Matthew and they play hard together, usually while I am taking care of Adeline! Things are going to look a little different with Matthew having to juggle both, especially if Adeline is a hot mess. Elias has also really been asserting himself and being “three”, which also makes things challenging. Pray that they are able to play together and that Elias doesn’t feel slighted. Also that Elias is a good listener.
Matthew: It’s A LOT having both kids from 9-5 (you stay at home moms are AMAZING!). Pray that the days are not terribly hard and that it is a special two weeks for him and the kids.
Me: Please pray that I am able to get in the swing of things at work, and the I am able to integrate pumping easily into my day.
Thank you for your prayers. I am so grateful.
