saturday night, finneas came down with some kind of barf-and-fever virus, though he ended up in relatively high spirits throughout the day, all things considered.
(he spent plenty of time sucking on his fingers and cuddling his blankie)
this one is still wonderful (and four weeks old as of yesterday!), and this week included multiple six-hour sleeping stretches at night! as a result, i'm feeling as fresh as morning dew.
the thing that's taking the most adjusting to: all the kids needing to be in a constant four-foot-radius of yours truly. considering i spend a significant amount of time on the couch nursing, rocking, reading board books, etc, our life has come to look like this most of the time:
(you will notice the couch holds nearly the whole family, a change of clothes for me, wipes, a dirty diaper that hasn't gotten trashed yet, books, and extra sleeping accoutrements, as well as children in various stages of undress. we should be set for pretty much anything that befalls us.)
and that is (literally) what our week looked like. how was yours?
