Kiddo Junior has finally arrived! He checked in on Tuesday afternoon (March 20th) at 8 pounds 4 ounces and a whole of 54 cm long…

Mommy and Daddy are very happy and are now busy trying to figure out the art of juggling two kids… So far sleep doesn’t seem to be an option :-)

I’d tell you the birthing story, but then it’s all kind of blur at the moment... Let’s just say the highlights included a very horrible behavior on my part, resulting from having to wait for a room (cause it was a busy day in baby-arriving land), and not having drugs. And parts of that behavior involved screaming, swearing that I’ll never do it again, biting my husband (yup, not kidding here), and having about five people trying to restrain me…

On the up side, the whole thing was relatively short, and once I eventually got the drugs it was smooth sailing… (Honestly, what’s up with the whole anti-epidural campaign? I’ll never get that…) And the pushing stage took less than 10 minutes! Wow! I mean, my last one was HOURS…

And now I’m a proud mommy of two boys!

I am still having a hard time believing it…

And kiddo number one seems to be on the track at being the perfect brother. He’s absolutely fascinated with the baby. And is not getting tired at all from pointing out over and over that baby has a nose… And that baby is crying… And that baby should play with the monster trucks (Help!).

What can I say – my kids are perfect :-)

And I'm sure one day I'll sleep again...

Congrats on the healthy baby! Very, very cute. It's nice to hear that big brother is taking to baby fairly well, and that mom and dad are doing good too. And yeah, that sleep thing? From what I hear, it can go on for a long time. Good luck :)

I'm a 29 year old mom of two! A toddler (kiddo one) and a new baby (kiddo junior). I am also the most horrible (as in I barely ever do it) cook that I have met in my life. This blog is a diary of my attempts to feed my hungry growing family

PS: My name is not actually Vasilisa... But I find that honest reporting comes easier when there is a shred of anonymity. (Apparently, posting pics of my sons doesn't count...)

PPS: For those of you wondering where on the planet I am: I'm cosily tacked away in the Torontonian suburbia of the Great White North (Canada).

The Beginnings

What is all this?


To music, naturally.


All kinds of books. Haven't figured out how to post links to them yet.
