2 month post

Today you are two months old. I seriously can't believe how fast it has gone by.

-You are still a fussy guy, and we have tried a ton of things for you. Zantac, mylecon, and most recently we started taking you in for chiropractic adjustments. ( That is another post all to itself )
- You started smiling and cooing 2 days before you turned 6 weeks old. You don't smile as much as your sister, but when you do, it melts my heart and I cherish each and every smile.
- You are a momma's boy to the MAX. I have never seen anything like it before and although it is so nice to be so loved and wanted, you wear me out, because you only want your momma.
- You still hate the swing. You tolerate the bouncer, and you actually kinda enjoy the activity mat.
- You are going to bed around 8pm , waking up around 11pm to be nursed, then again around 3am, and then again around 6am.
- You have found your hands and they are always in your mouth.
- You are wearing 3-6 month clothes
- Wearing size 2 diapers
- Your eyes are still a greenish brown.
-You had your first cold.
-We started trying to give you a bottle starting at 7 weeks, and you hated it. You wouldn't take a Dr. Brown's bottle, a Breastflow bottle, we finally got you you to take a playtex drop in. You don't love it, but you will take it.
- You are 15lbs 1oz ( 95% )24 inches long ( 90% )

Domestic Engineer

So as of yesterday I am officially a stay at home mom. Or as I would like to say , a " domestic engineer"

I went by work yesterday to turn in my resignation. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be.As much as I want to stay at home with my babies, I am sacred that I won't do a good job, and that I will loose the person that I am.
I need as much advice on what a typical day is for other stay at home moms. When do you find time to pick up the house, and when do you find time to teach your toddler with a fussy baby?

I do not like the TV as a baby sitter, so that really isn't an option for me. I am willing to let Faith watch maybe 20 minutes or so of a show that I have approved and think isn't a bunch of crap. I figure I will have to get my cleaning done when the kids are taking a nap. That is if they nap at the same time.

I am sure once I get used to everything, I will be ok, but right now I am scared and don't want to fail.
I also want to make sure that Faith still has other friends she can play with so she is still well socialized. She does take dance class once a week, so she is around a bunch of other girls, but there is no free play there.
Any tips or ideas would be lovely. Gotta get back to these kidlets.
