Last week home.

This is my last week of maternity leave, and I am very bummed that I have to go back to work already. I am not at all someone who wants to stay home full time, but I would like another month or two and then to work four days a week instead of five. However, that is not an option, so back I will go.

We have had a great time the last few months. Jelly is growing and changing everyday. She nurses like a champ and loves her pacifier. She is long and lean with a great smile.

PB is wonderful. He makes us laugh daily. He is learning all kinds of new works. Yesterday we heard Pea Potter (Peanut Butter) at least 500 times in a row! He is very happy and loves his "baby sista." He also gives a good scolding when he doesn't like what we have done. Today he told me,
"Don't - Naughty!" when at the play area at the local mall. He had his hand in a fist at the same time and was shaking it at me. It was hilarious.

I will try and get some pictures posted on here soon. It is just so hard to spend the time right now, but I will get to it.

Jelly's first few days

Peanut Butter loved his baby sister right away. He hugged her, kissed her and said "baby sista."

Sweet big brother hugs!

PB's big brother style

Peanut B has been such a great big brother and helper. He loves to get diapers or lotion for "baby sista". He also loves to try and share his toys and even "banky," the most important thing in life!

A few fun things he has told Jelly :

Jelly was crying during an exam by the home health nurse.

PB came over to her and said,

"baby enough! shhhhhhh"

She was crying another time, and PB gave her her paci and said "bite."

I have to say she doesn't cry that often but those are the two times he has made me laugh out loud with his response.

Our family is finding this change easier than going from no kids to one. Jelly is a great little eater and sleeper so we are feeling very lucky. PB continues to be a little comedian and even though I didn't know it was possible, seeing him with his little sister fills my heart even more.
