Getting use to my new "normal"

My new "normal" is slowly starting to feel more....well....normal. I have successfully colored my first coloring page while nursing a baby. Yes that's right...and I was very proud of myself. I have to admit I didn't color the whole thing (Aiden doesn't stay at one activity for very long), but I still colored. Slowly but surely I know multi-multi-tasking will get a bit easier. Last night Makayla gave me a 6 hour stretch! She is such a good girl! And I was showered before Aiden got up this morning (something I didn't think would happen for a very long time) so we're feeling pretty good around here today.

Aiden is feeling much better too. Its amazing what an antibiotic will do. I am slowly letting him help with "baby" more and more. This morning while I was changing her diaper he went and got his little stool so he could see too. And he was so proud of himself when she lost her paci and he put it back in for her. It was very cute! He was grinning from ear to ear.

Tomorrow will be my first official day on my own all day with two kids. I will surely be posting about that adventure. Today Aiden is with his Gran (Kreg's mom) so Makayla and I are enjoying our day doing laundry and cleaning up around the house so I will be ready to go for the rest of the week.
Here is a picture we took of Makayla on Saturday: 1 1/2 weeks old

Isn't amazing the thing syou can do while nursing?!? Some of them are my proudest accomplishments! And I love how much the older sibling can actually help. I didn't really get full appreciation of it until Tristin was a bit older, but it wonderful to have an extra pair of hands... no matter how small!
