Today is day 10 with Blondie and so far, life is wonderful! I have to keep this short cause nap time is almost over, but a quick summary.
Blondie is a great eater! Hooray!
She also sleeps impressively for a newborn.
Isn't this an impressive swaddle job? Mon Amour did it. It's a shame she hates being swaddled; she much prefers to stretch out with her hands near her face.
She lost her umbilical cord at day 7 and had her first official bath on day 8. Papillon enjoyed helping with the bath. Blondie didn't mind the experience too much.
She actually has periods of awake-ness! Papillon never did at this age. I love seeing newborn eyes open - just chillin.
We tested out the ergo a couple days in. It's kind of amazing!
Thus far, the transition from 1 to 2 kids has been easier than the transition from 0 to 1 kids. Easier recovery physically. Less baby-blues. Not that its not a lot work, but we focus on priorities - getting everyone fed, clothed and rested - and anything else that gets done is just bonus!
So far, we are loving life as a family of 4.
