Isabelle Update

In case you've been wondering why I haven't been posting as much as I normally do, I thought I'd pop in and give you an update on the "reason"! LOL

Isabelle is now 1 month old (already!). She's doing very well. She still isn't into a regular schedule, but she's better than she used to be. At least now she'll lay in her basinette and let me do some things instead of screaming because she wants to be held. :) Once she starts napping at the same times each day, I'll be able to get back into a routine myself.

Her brother and sisters still love her to pieces. So much so, that the last week or so was very stressful for me. Arwen was sick, so I was trying to keep her away from Isabelle and I felt horrible pushing her away. I had to keep all three of them away so that Arwen didn't feel singled out. It was hard on me because I didn't feel like I gave Arwen the "cuddling and nurturing" that I would normally give my sick kids because I was so afraid of passing the sickness onto Isabelle. I'm sure I'm not the first mom with a newborn and sick older children who has felt this way. I'm just glad Arwen is well again and I'm crossing my fingers that everyone else stays well!

Thank you all for checking in with me! It's always so nice to hear from you. Know that I really appreciate all your thoughts and well wishes!

Wow Charmaine! I didn't even know you were pregnant! See what happens when I don't pay attention. I should have asked my friend Brian - he likely would have known. Of course, my head's been buried in the sand (and we MOVED...AGAIN)...but congrats on that beautiful little girl!!!

Great picture. She is a sweetie pie. Hope Arwen is feeling much better now. I know it is hard to keep little ones apart when one is sick. They do like to love on one another.
