It has been just over a week since we brought Taso home, and here’s the reality: life is chaos. Leo started regressing on sleep (no napping, fighting bedtime) and really using some attention-seeking tactics (aka major temper tantrums) starting the week leading up to Taso’s birthday, and it has only intensified since then.
Life right now is really difficult. There are moments where I wonder how we are ever going to survive this stage. We have had so many family members here to help us, and I am so grateful that we are blessed to have them – my parents, sisters, in-laws and sister-in-law have been incredible. My friends have been a listening ear and a helping hand when they are able. But I’ve found myself wondering if will life ever feel “normal” again?
“We’re doing our best. Life right now is really difficult. Everything is temporary.” That is my mantra these days. But I truly am trying to enjoy every moment of this sweet new baby. He is truly a miracle and a blessing in all of our lives. These three boys are going to grow up together and probably fight and wrestle, but also take care of each other and look out for one another. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for all of us.
