2 isn't twice the work

Having 2 kids isn't just twice the work it's more like 14 times the work.  I'm exhausted!  Happily exhausted.  Mr. O is a whirlwind of GO! GO! GO! and keeping up with him is tough enough without also having to take care of another tiny human.  I wish there was a way to get the posts in my brain blogged without me having to actually type them.  Since that isn't possible I'm going to have to give up the idea that a post has to be perfect and just post the 3 or 300 words that I can manage at any time.  There are too many things that I want to put here that are getting lost because I keep thinking that I'll have time later.  Later never happens! 

Little T is a dream baby and so laid back.  He's a great sleeper and actually takes naps.  O never did and it is sooo nice to have a baby that naps.  We've been having some trouble with weight gain lately so I started solids a little earlier than I had planned.  I had to start with jarred baby food because I have to add some calorie boosters and need to be able to measure servings and calories (also not as I had planned).  Once we get back on track and he's sitting up on his own we'll transition to baby led weaning - at least that is that plan. 

Mr. O is 13 days away from being 3.  OMG, 3!  How does that happen?  Too fast, too fast!  He is amazing.  I love watching him love on his little brother.   He tells him all the time that he loves him and that he has to eat so that he can be big enough to play trains with him.
