Photos from our newborn photo shoot

We had a great time at our newborn photo shoot last week, and the photos are (so far) amazing! I’ve not seen all of them yet, but our photographer, Amy, captured our precious Noelle so perfectly. I’m so glad to have these memories, and Bailey was a great big sister who loved being the “star” of the show!

Home from the hospital

We are home! We brought Noelle home from the hospital at lunch time yesterday, and she is doing really well. She loves to nurse so far, and is tolerating her big sister’s curiosity very well. For Bailey, this is quite an experience. She loves looking and touching Noelle, and is definitely enamored by her. There seems to be a bit of jealousy too, which we’re trying to work through. Bailey is definitely struggling with not being the center of attention, so it’s just going to take some time to to get used to this transition.

Noelle is already showing her own unique personality traits, and is quite the snuggler! She loves to be held and touched, and she prefers sleeping with her whole body draped across mommy’s chest. It doesn’t make for the most comfortable sleeping arrangement, but I’m enjoying the snuggling… Even if I did only get two hours of sleep.

Noelle looks very similar to Bailey, but also has her own unique characteristics. She has blonde eyelashes and eyebrows, unlike Bailey, and her mouth seems a bit bigger, too. But they both have the same long, skinny fingers as their dad, as well as his huge feet!

Counting down the days

We only have a few days to go before our new baby girl arrives! All my checkups have gone really well and she is getting bigger day by day. She looks healthy and everything looks great. I am feeling so huge right now that sleeping is pretty difficult, as is getting comfortable. I don’t know how women carrying twins do it! Bailey is so excited to meet her baby sister, and loves jumping in her crib and turning on her mobile. She is all into the baby stuff! I think she will be a very nurturing big sister, as evidenced by her hugging my belly every morning and always kissing it. She’s so adorable.

Most everything is ready and the bags are packed. If she doesn’t come this weekend we will definitely be delivering by next Tuesday. So the countdown has begun!
