At the six week mark, you are sleeping longer, eating well and still cuddling (although you’re starting to get stronger and push yourself up during tummy time, so I don’t know how long you’ll want to just sleep on my chest). And you’re making our lives better each and every day.
We saw our first smile — and there will be lots more pointed at your big sister, I imagine, since the two of you are very quickly becoming BFFs.
How are you a month old already? You’re a cuddlebug — so calm and snuggly — and the perfect fit to our family. (I wouldn’t mind a little more sleep at night but hey — that will come, right?)
I can’t really explain to you how perfectly you fit in with us already. I’ve heard other parents talk about not realizing that something (or someone) was missing until he or she arrived, but now I get it. It’s hard to remember a time when you weren’t here — and while you’re already bearing the brunt of being the second child, you seem to be settling in quite nicely.
Precious, sweet, CALM baby…what a blessing you are! After your entrance into the world, I wondered how you’d react to the noises, lights and busy, busy world you were born into. Since Audrey was a relatively easy newborn, I didn’t think I could get lucky a second time. But guess what? I’M JUST THAT LUCKY.
This is a raw, unfiltered, 3,000-word account of my labor and delivery experience with baby #2. I had an unmedicated hospital delivery. Enjoy (if you dare!)
