She really is a good baby and with the exception of what I call her “fussy time of day” around 5:30pm, she is very easy to take care of . I have been trying to get her to take a passy during her fussy time, but have discovered that she seems to prefer her thumb. This is a cute picture we took of her with her passy.
We have been giving Bella a bottle of breastmilk once a day in preparation of when I go back to work. This is a picture of Michael feeding Bella her first bottle……
( I think its so cute how she always covers her eyes. She is NOT a fan of lights!)
Mary Kathryn is becoming a big girl in her own right. She began sleeping in her own bedroom this past week. She had always slept in her own bed until we moved into our current house over a year ago and she became scared to sleep in an unfamiliar room. She began sleeping with Hailey and never stopped. Recently we decided that there was way too much giggling and playing after bedtime and that it was time for Mary Kathryn to sleep in her “big girl bed”. Thankfully, she made the change without a fight but insisted on a small light left on in her room at night. We agreed and she is now officially in her own room!
Hailey has been loving having Bella around now. I believe she would hold her all day if I let her! Her biggest adjustment has been being at home much more. Hailey is a very social child and loves to be on the go. Luckily, we have had plenty of visitors and we have been taking her out and about as much as possible. Still, she is ready for the hustle and bustle of school to start back! I, on the otherhand, don’t know if I’m ready for all that running around yet!
Its amazing how quickly time has been flying since I delivered 3 weeks ago. I happily graduated from my maternity clothes about a week ago, though it will be a while before I can fit into anything from my pre-pregnancy wardrobe. But…….What a small price to pay for such a wonderful blessing!!!:)
