Oh, my little buddy…
I love having this little girl around during the week! I won’t lie, she makes my days much more difficult, especially when she is having one of those high needs days, but it’s so nice to have a little one around again. If all goes well with the baby making plans, we should have a newborn this time next year (please be kind to us baby gods!), and I’m thinking of this summer as our practice run. This is our third week in with the little lady, and I feel really good about the schedule and rhythm we are getting down. Her eating and sleeping was all over the place at first, which meant there was a ton of hungry/overtired/crying moments, but these last 2 days have been a dream now that I have started a schedule. I’m sure that I totally just jinxed myself and will spend the rest of the week walking and bouncing a screaming baby, but for now I’ll revel in my success.
Now Ali and her raging jealousy is another problem I’m not having much success with. It really burns her up to see her mommy feeding and gazing into another baby’s eyes. I suppose it’s good for her to learn how to share me and be more patient with getting her needs met. Her language is really improving quite a bit, so that is helping. She’s saying tons of words now, and is even forming 2 word sentences on occasion! It’s amazing how fast she’s picking things up.
