1. Nursing- has been going A-mazing. I was not hopeful on this one because it did NOT go well with Sophia. I do supplement with formula but the little girl likes it best the au natural way. On another note she eats so much I wonder sometimes if she is getting too much! Never have I understood when a mommy is worried she might be feeding her kid too much. Now I know it can happen.
2. Sleeping-Amelia is waking up pretty much once MAYBE twice a night. I haven't wanted to say and jinx anything but as of right now she is down around 10, wakes up at around 2 ish and then maybe 5:30/6:30 (she does go back down until about 7:30). She usually goes right back to sleep after she is done getting her fill so there usually isn't any long awake periods at night. Compare that to a minimum of three awakenings when Sophia was born and I am in awe of how a newborn can sleep so long right off the bat.
3. Binky-This one is easy. My little girl just wants to suck on something pretty much all the time. I am hoping honestly for a thumb so I don't have to continuously find the binky that Sophia has hidden or wash it because she was pretending to be baby Amelia.
I have actually enjoyed the last month. My mom, sister and hubby have been on hand to help during the day so this start of the second month will be my real learning experience with just myself here everyday. Since Amelia is my last when the moments of a newborn crying, toddler screaming and it seems like the world is going to end at any moment I remember that this is my last newborn and last experience I will have with a little teeny baby. So as I wash spit up out of my hair, look down at the juice my 3 year old spilled on me, smelling the poo that needs to be changed while dealing with two screaming (but adorable) baby girls, I can actually laugh because I know how quickly they change and grow. So, thank you to my sister, mom and hubby for all the help in making the first month so memorable! And the pictures aren't great quality due to my iphone....the large camera hasn't been brought out because it'd be like carrying a third child around....
