Hitting our stride
By The Blogivers on March 03, 2014
When Avery was only a couple of months old, a friend was telling me about her family's experience with adding a second kid to the mix, and she said she didn't feel like they really "hit their stride" until her youngest was about 5 months old. Another friend confessed that it took them closer to 6 months, and those first 6 months were relatively miserable. Although I (thankfully!) did not find Avery's arrival into our world to be nearly as overwhelming or traumatic as I had anticipated it to be, it was still encouraging to hear from others that even if it was rough in the beginning, we would most likely get to a point soon where we felt nice and comfortable as a family of 4. . . .
