Well, my last post was December 8, when I was sitting here on the couch complaining about eBay. In the middle of writing my post, I got a twinge in my belly, and long story short, m is laying next to me all swaddled up, 10 days old. I am working on a birth story, but that post will come later...
What do you say about a baby...he is a little miracle, with a perfect face and tiny hands and legs that curl up towards his chest. He cries and wiggles and sleeps, and makes funny baby faces. He is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen...how is that possible, when E is also the most beautiful thing I've ever seen?
E has been so good with him, except for today when she whacked him in the head with a WonderPets DVD. It was an accident, I'm sure...she seems to really love him, and calls him "Baby m". She says "Baby m's cawyin" when he starts to fuss, and tries to put his chuchi in to make him feel better. She pets his head, softly, and talks to him in a high pitched voice. She is a good big sister, and watching her with him is a joy.
I remember when E came home, I did not get very much sleep because she would cry out about every hour and a half to two hours. Baby m sleeps much more soundly, and we are getting stretches of 2-3 hours of sleep between night feedings. In the morning I feel almost human, with a total of about 6 hours sleep. With E, I think it was a month or two before I got that much in one night. Thanks, Baby m. We're so glad you're here!
