|Axel, Maine, 2012|
I can't believe it's been two weeks.
I think Will, Axel, and I are settling into life as a family of three. It's funny how normal and natural things feel so quickly. The sleep deprivation is obviously tough, but I do get a good 2-3 hour stretch now and then and that feels pretty luxurious.
Axel is definitely filling out and looking long and chubby-cheeked. He's still a little, little guy, but I can tell from how his clothing fits that he's growing, and quickly. His cousins are obsessed with him. Leo, who is two, calls him "Babynaxel." Every so often I hear my door nob turn and some combination of little people are panting in the entryway looking for the bambino.
Today we have big plans for a long walk around the island, a nap, and bed by 9:30!
In other news, I had my first batch of oysters in ten months yesterday and they were fantastic.
