Let's see... since our last post we have moved to a new house and had a baby :)
We moved in June to a 3 bedroom house (still in Oakland) because our family was growing. We love our new neighborhood and our new house. We have so much space! And thankfully we have an amazing landlord. This house is also closer to one of Maddie's best friends Hattie (4 blocks away).
Eleanor (Nora) Elizabeth Pollock was born on August 26, 2014 at 9:32am. She was 8lbs 5oz and 20in. We are so in love with this little girl... especially Maddie. The second thing Madison said to me when she can to visit us at the hospital was "Where is baby sissy?" (After saying "Hi mom!"). Madison loves to hold Nora, sing to Nora and show her books and toys. She has enjoyed helping Patrick give Nora a bottle and is a huge helper during diaper changes.
My mom was here for 3 weeks. She came on my due date to help me with Madison until Nora was born. So, her first week here it was just Madison and her last 2 weeks here were helping us adjust to having 2 kids. She was a big help!
Patrick got 3 weeks off of work for paternity leave. This is his last week at home, but it has been amazing having him around. Madison and I are going to have a very hard time adjusting to life without daddy at home everyday :(
Me- I am doing well. Recovery has been much easier this time. I feel more and more like myself everyday. I am so happy to not be pregnant anymore :) It also helps that Nora is sleeping very well at night. Last night we got 5 straight hours of sleep. It was AMAZING!
All in all, we are doing really well right now and just adjusting to life as a family of 4.
