Tulip is six weeks now, mashaAllah! I have to wonder if it would feel like a milestone if it wasn’t for a doctor’s appointment for both mom and baby at six weeks, plus when most working moms go back. Still, alhamdulilah, it feels like a special time.
Tulip has to be the easiest baby I’ve encountered. She sleeps easily at home and in public, she nurses great, and she’s just generally an easy going baby, alhamdulilah. Little Miss is smitten by her and we find her sneaking to give Tulip hugs and kisses when we aren’t looking. It’s adorable, but Little Miss doesn’t quite understand that she’s quite a bit bigger than her little sister so she has to be gentle with hugs.
Blogging has been on my mind every day, along with keeping up on all the social media, but my time at an actual computer is quite scarce most days, and when I do have some time, my volunteer work with the homeschool co-op is high priority. Alhamdulilah, we are wrapping up the year there and looking forward to new and exciting classes in the fall. I have lots of time on the phone to browse the Internet, but Swype is far too irritating to do anything of any substance – ha! Candy Crush and Sudoku it is then!
Care Bear is, as always, very helpful. I think we are both quite ready to take a bit of a break from the routine and enjoy some relaxed summer months. Of course, my version of relaxed and hers do not always match – hours and hours of TV will drive me batty but she would love if I allowed that!
Well, enough of our daily grind! Here’s some pics of the last marvelous six weeks!
