"My second son was born in January. It might sound cheesy but our life together follows the seasons. We both went into hibernation at the beginning of his life. The world was frozen outside and we cuddled inside the house, being very slow and silly together. I often hear moms say that they were about to go nuts the first few months because they were stuck inside four walls. But I was happy between my four walls. At the same time, he was eating every hour and a half for fifty minutes, so we watched a lot of Gilmore Girls! I would tuck him in with me on the couch, relaxing, looking outside. Everything was white. It was beautiful. Then March came and I slowly started to become restless, to feel the need to go out more. Spring was here so it was ok. What was difficult the first-time around wasn’t as intense this time because it wasn’t 100% new. And now, it’s summer again. We enjoy it. We have fun."
