Despite Indy being such an intense baby, things are starting to get a teeny bit easier in terms of juggling the attentions of two children… As much as I don’t want to wish away this period of time, I am looking forward to him being able to sit up by himself, so I can put him down more and therefore be able to do things with Busby without him always in my arms.
