Introducing Everett Jude - Like Honey

Introducing Everett Jude

 Look who's here!

If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that we welcomed our second sweet little boy into our family just before Thanksgiving! I've been soaking up all the newborn snuggles and family time these past two weeks but wanted to update the blog to share some photos of our new arrival!

This boy has been such a blessing to us already! He is SO smiley and always so very happy and calm. A friend of mine told me she thinks that 2020 babies are all extra good because they knew we needed some joy this year. Based on Everett's personality so far, she may be right!

Lucy and Parker are of course over the moon still. Lucy really loves to hold him and Parker constantly nuzzles him and calls him his "little cutie". They talk a lot about how much they wish he would grow up so they can play with him.

When I had Lucy, things were pretty easy. She was also a very content baby with very little fussing and being my only baby, it was easy to still get things done. Having Parker when she was just 15 months old was a little trickier. Largely because her contentedness meant she was still not walking, and no 15 month old is capable of doing much on their own, so I essentially had 2 babies at once. Parker was also a pretty good baby, but definitely fussier and more demanding than Lucy or Everett. Now having 2 kids who are old enough to do a lot on their own or to help me, it's a whole new ball game! Everett is very easy, hardly fussing and sleeping really well so far, but it does make life a lot easier to have one of the big kids grab me a diaper or fetch me a drink when I'm trapped nursing or holding the baby.

Little Everett is just 2 1/2 weeks old as I write this, so time will tell what kind of baby he will be and child he'll become. No matter what, though, I know he is nothing short of a blessing to our family and I am so grateful to be his mama!
