Postpartum Barbie

My little Maverick is one month old.

I can’t help but compare him to Z when she was an infant. And it isn’t fair to either of them. But briefly:


It’s harder in many ways. Juggling two little people instead of one. Trying to get Maverick to sleep when Z’s running around the house. Making Mom-and-Z time so Z doesn’t feel left out.

But this baby actually sleeps on his own, and when he cries he doesn’t sound pissed off like Z did.

Summer will be a whole other animal – Z won’t be in school and I’ll have them both. Together. All. Day. Long. But I have a couple more weeks of just me and my little dude during the day, and I plan to enjoy them.

    Good to hear from you and: Gasp! PPBarbie is beautiful! So glad Maverick is sleeping. Looking forward to future posts on parent-of-two-ing it.

    PB, I hope I can make more time for blogging soon! I miss it. And Seven…not so sure about my “professional” status. Just now arguing with Maverick about where he’s supposed to sleep…

      Thanks, Vic! I worried the hairy legs were too disgusting, but hey, I gotta paint it like it is. 🙂
