Month Four with Baby #2

You are just such a good little baby, I can't even believe my good fortune to have you. 4 Months have come and gone and you continue to bring us so much joy.

You've seem to found your place in our little family. I can tell you were meant to be baby #2, as you have a lots of patience and happily entertain yourself when I need to tend to your sister.

You will often sing sweet songs to yourself and kick your legs as I chase after your sister. And when I get to sing back with you, your whole face just lights up and you will coo and babble so excitedly as if you were telling me all the wonderful things you were looking at and singing about. There is no doubt about it you are a very happy baby.

Although you are not rolling over yet, but you still manage to get on your side and arch your back and seem to stretch as far as you can go. It makes me think that it could be any day now, but only time will time.

What you do love to do is kick! You often kick so much that you will spin yourself 180 degrees. I don't really know how you accomplice that but you seem to do it really well.

Sleep is doing well. I typically feed you 2-3 times a night then on the last feed (the 3rd or 4th feed) you are up and ready to take on the day. Most days that is between 7 am - 8 am. But sadly ever once and a while you decide that 5 am is a good time to get up, luckily it does not happen very often. You are taking 3 naps a day and usually sleep for about 2 hours. Most day you go down for a nap at 10 am, 2 pm, and 4 pm give or take a little. And then you go down to bed around 7 pm - 8 pm all depending on how the day is going. Although every day is a little different, it is kind of nice to have some sort of nap schedule worked out. You are a lot more pleasant when you get your naps.

You are growing so beautifully although much too fast for me. It is so nice to have you in our family.

We love you so much.

Month Three with Baby #2

Three Months has come and gone, why does time have to go by so fast. These days with sweet baby cuddles and smiles are just so precious. Even with the lack of sleep it is all so worth it.

 Sadly one can easily tell that you are a second child just by looking at the size of the bold spot on the back of your head. And what is even worse is that is has grown to the sides of your head. You now have bold lines going around your head. It breaks my heart, I blame your sister for it. You are just going to have to learn to sit up sooner rather than later.

This past month you continue to smile more and more, you are sure one smiley baby. And your little giggle, it is so sweet. It melts my heart every time I heard it.

We seem to taken a little step back on the sleep department, luckily not too big of a step back but you have not given me any 7 hours stretch recently. Oh well I knew it was too good to be true.

You are just such a joy to have in our little family. I can tell you love your big sister as you are very quickly to smile at her and are very patience when she forgets to be gently.

You are such a sweetheart.
