It will be a little lonely at first but I worry most about Grant. He had so much love and attention this last week while I couldn't do as much for him as I did before the baby came. BUT I did have a good half hour by myself with them today, my very first moments alone with both my boys. It felt wonderful.
I FINALLY took myself to the doctor today since I seriously still have this sinus infection. I scheduled with my midwives since I don't even have a family doctor yet and it worked out beautifully!! Mandy was there, the midwife in training that delivered Nikolai. She came right in, gave me a hug and got to hold the babe and chat with us for a bit. As we were headed out I asked if I could get a picture of her holding Nikolai and she said "I wanted to ask you that but didn't want to be a weirdo!" Apparently Nikolai was her very first delivery ever. That's stinkin adorable.
This morning the boys were just hanging out together. I love it when Nikolai is wide awake in the mornings because he is so good at sleeping all night. He wakes up to eat and then is out again. I felt that might be the case because he was always sleeping at night while in me, never kicking unless I would be up with my insomnia for a bit.
After the doctor we ran last errands together with Amanda and Luca as well. For lunch I took them to Mi Ranchito in American Fork, promising how amazing it was and it did not disappoint. Everyone loved it, including the fried ice cream I made them all try.
Back at home Luca and Grant played the evening away, lots of ring around the rosie's went down.
Nikolai love love loves his swing. It puts him out in 2 seconds, oh my word!
We are really gonna miss having grandma and Nicole around...
