Off the cuff

Its been a bit rough. With bad days. Fussing. Crying. Negotiating between the 2 sisters. So little time to myself. Caitlin is gaining her ground. Now that she sits up and wiggles her way to get her toys, she has become a little being that Ellie has to reckon with. A bit less of scratching her sister, no more biting (at least not in the last few weeks). Although both sisters have begun to play together a little, I think Ellie still misses being the only little girl at home. We try to give her one on one time, which is after Caitlin goes to bed at 8:00 or 8:30. That means that Ellie sleeps late and we sleep later.

I never realised how much work kids were. Till now. Thing I took for granted before are now luxuries. Even a trip to the bookshop by myself needs to be orchestrated around feeds, naps, moods and the babysitters timetable. More later.
