Time is flying by with two kids! I can’t believe I’ve been such a slacker on the updates, but between nursing, taking care of a 2 year old and trying to sleep, life’s been pretty crazy lately. Both girls are doing great and growing. Bailey had a bit of a time at first adjusting to her new baby sister (and all the attention she was getting), but seems to be getting into a routine now, and she is realizing she’s still loved, so it’s all going to be okay.
Noelle has been growing like a weed. She’s gaining weight rapidly and is already starting to fill out and lose her ‘newborn’ appearance. She’s such a sweet girl and has a good disposition. They’re are definitely differences between my 2 girls. Noelle is a little more laid-back. She cries, but seems less fussy overall than Bailey. However, she’s not sleeping too much and seems to be wide awake and bushy tailed all the time! That makes it tough for me to nap, but we’re getting through it. Noelle is very curious and already has great control over her head and neck for such a young baby. She loves looking around at things and taking it all in!
Bailey has been a ham, as usual. She’s enjoying preschool and is starting to get the hang of potty training. She’s been given rewards for doing such an excellent job learning. She likes all her school friends, and loves telling stories about them. Her teachers tell us she is a “Mama Bear,” meaning that she takes care of everyone else in the class… and of course corrects them when they’re doing wrong, too. She’s really into dressing up now, and loves wearing costumes around the house.
We also recently got her a haircut (Yea! You can now see her pretty face!) because she refused to wear anything in her hair and it was always falling in her place. The stylists at the salon fawned all over her and made her feel like a princess. And of course, she looks like one in our eyes.
So all is going well so far. I hope to get on top of more updates and post more often now that things are settling into a routine.
Here are some recent pics!
