ADJUSTING TO LIFE WITH A NEW BABY | vlog


Making a lot of espressos and that’s kind
of what has been keeping me going. Cheers! What’s going on guys? It’s been about a week since Jordan was born. To be completely honest this first week has
been incredibly difficult. I’m not sure you guys have gotten the update
yet, but Jordan was actually born facing forward, as oppose to the proper position, which is
facing the spine. So this makes delivery a lot more painful
and also makes recovery a lot more difficult as well. So I guess for the past week or so Alex has
pretty much spent most of the time in bed. She’s been to the physio and everything like
that but that has left me essentially feeding the kids, bringing up meals to her. I know this is my third kid. There aren’t really suppose to be this many
surprises. But man you forget how many clothes a newborn
goes through… how much laundry. I forget what it’s like to be woken up at
4am and you have to concentrate on getting that diaper done properly. Man there’s a lot to do around the house and
I’m pretty stressed. Did you win he race? Yo you guys gotta eat please. Gabriel you are making progress. Madison not
so much you. What does progress mean? Progress? It means you are moving in the right direction. Your making no progress. You’re not going anywhere. I am going somewhere. I am going to the doctor. With mommy. Because she has a baby in her tummy. No she actually doesn’t. Yes she does. It came out. No it didn’t. I need to bring her to the doctor. So she can feel better. Okay then go. I think the baby already came Madison. No it didn’t. Who is Jordan? Mommy left without you. Mommy left to the doctors and came back already
with the baby. The baby is already out. You missed it. I didn’t. Yes you did. No I didn’t. Yes you did mama. I’m not a mama. Yes you are mama. Dude you have’t had anything. She’s not going anywhere either. I am going
somewhere. I’m going to work with daddy. Work, work, work, work. Work, work, work, work, work. How old is she now? It’s been a week. You’re just getting to your hair now? Mom life. How many attempts have you tried to do your
hair? At least like 15 times. She we giver her her privacy? Do you like me? I think she loves you. oh. Did you say no she doesn’t Gabriel? We don’t share a bed. You have your own space. Look how luxurious. You know how many babies wish they had this
space? And its all yours. That’s right. So don’t call for me in the night. Don’t call for me. Ok? I love you. Okay glad we had this talk. Good morning everyone. It is….I don’t know what day it is. There’s Madison. Gabriel is in school Madison is about to go to school. Ryan is taking her. I am in bed with this cutie. Say good morning. Wow. Mom no cameras. I am going to breast feed this little one
before she starts screaming on me. Feed me! I’m tired but I’m happy. We had a pretty good night. I think she woke up twice and she slept in
her bassinet for most of the night, which is the first time in almost 3 weeks. She is 2 and a half weeks old so I am pretty
excited. I am hoping that this is going to be the start
of her new routine that she is going to be sleeping on her own. She is trying to look at you guys. Please don’t poo on me again. I’m begging you. I showered today. I did shower guys. Nooo. You guys woke her up. Be happy. I fed you like five times in the last hour. Okay it will be six times. Do you want your daddy? Ya I feel the same way. I want to cry too. Madison is fascinated with the fact that she
can push on my belly and there is no baby in there anymore. Don’t hurt me. There is no baby in there anymore. This is my baby. No there is no baby in there. Is this my baby? No. That’s just fat. Look how strong she is guys. Look at that neck control. That’s my baby. There she goes, thinking she can crawl. These little feet. She is looking for breast milk now. Even though I just fed her I kid you not even
10 minutes ago. She just had a poop and now she is hungry
again. I love you. She’s so cute. Everybody is saying that they want a baby,
Wait first of all for your relationship to be solidified because children are the death
of relationships. You have to have a strong foundation to get
over this hump because it is difficult. False! According to Ryan it is not difficult because
he knows it’s coming to an end. The difficult period. So overall it is not difficult for him. But I am telling you at least as a woman,
with all your hormones and your tired, it’s difficult, but children are so worth it. Look at that chin. She was so skinny when she was born. Look at
that chin. Ya but wait, get married that is something
you want to do. Buy a house, buy a car, know what you want
to do with your life. Don’t rush into having kids and just enjoy
your life. Enjoy the stage where you are at. This is probably
the first time that I am truly just enjoying every stage. I don’t know if I had the blues with my other
kids. (baby blues). For those of you that don’t know. That is when you are kind of down. I don’t think I was quite depressed but I
was definitely having an identity crisis.I am just happy. I’m happy. Hopefully it lasts. I think the blues can sneak up on you in the
first year, but you guys will see it. I will be honest. I’ll let you know. Okay, I gotta go. She is loosing patience with me. Say bye! Daddy change my butt. Thank you! Best daddy ever. Second diaper change in five minutes. Just to be difficult Jordan. You are lucky daddy loves you. He doesn’t mind. Oh goodness the poor child. Ohh she smiling. Oh she is trying to eat you. She’s like yes, breast milk… wait a second. No quite. Do you like his kisses now? Awww she does’t mind it. hmm. Let me taste it. That’s not breast milk. I’m closing my mouth now. You lied to me. No. Get me out of here. Mom! Save me! Breast milk! Okay I am coming. When will dad realize mom is where it’s at? Here. No I am joking even if you got her. She is all yours. We are at he doctors for Jordan. I just don’t know if I have it in me anymore

    Hi Lex. I'm Lisa and this is my first response to your vlog. Listen girl, I don't know any female who doesn't experience "baby blues," post-partum. That's normal. Ride it out, Lexa; you're doing it. Your baby is absolutely adorable and way off the charts with her growth and development. Look how Sweetie holds her head up. Awesome! I'm praying for you and the family. God has blessed you all.

  • Susan D. Byrdsong

    Alex, take some me time for yourself…especially when the baby is sleeping. Sleep while she's sleeping it will help with irritability and sleeplessness.

  • Jimmy Gallagher

  • Anita Luca

    She looks identical to her mother. I wish one of my kids did. lol
    I remember that first month after they were born. Exhausting. Congrats youโ€™ll miss it one day! ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽŠ

  • Trinity Bertinelli

    I have one child, a 6 year old son and Iโ€™m already exhausted, mothers with more than 2 children are super humans and great mothers! The definition of self-sacrifice.

  • Cheryl Dalis

  • T Decarlo

    Children are not a death to a relationship. If children ruin your relationship then you had no relationship to begin with.

  • Sabrina Chavez

    I just stumbled upon your channel and boy do I feel your struggle, I just had our third baby and it has been the hardest of all of them. The hormones are no joke man, waiting to feel normal again seems to be around the corner along with some sleep. You guys Are doing great, hang in there Mama and Papa! BTW your family is beautiful, congrats on the new baby.

  • Tammy Mosbey

I did the opposite but it's okay.. my kids are all grown now I'm playing with my grandkids. Enjoy every moment with them while they're little coz time passes so fast. God bless you all โค๐Ÿ™

  • Aubz williams

    I was just thinking "holy crap how do you guys have so much time off especially the dad" but then I realized you live in Canada and have a much better maternal/paternal leave system when you have kids. Please tell America to step its game up lol. my dad got like 1 week with my brother when he was born and my mom got like 3 months.

  • Aim at myself

    Ur doing very well…YOU HAVE A GREAT FAMILY…AND GREAT HUSBAND…WHO IT SEEMS SUPPORTS ALL THE WAY..GOOD LUCK AND BLESSINGS ๐Ÿ˜˜

  • RR TJ

    If she's colicky I know exactly what you're going through my middle daughter did not walk until she was about 18 months old because she was colicky all she did was walk around with my boob in her mouth or a bottle I think her mouth is bigger than her body she's 12 now and her mouth is still bigger than her body I guess that don't change

  • T Taylor

    Those kisses where the cutest thing… You and Ryan are teaching me and my husband so much… We were just watching how you both hold her and are amazed… At three weeks her neck strength is amazing… Thank you… I have started to panic as we've gotten closer to baby #1's due date and your videos are just a welcome treat.
