whoa! congrats kismet!!!
our number 2 was born last week wednesday...so almost one week old.
it's a girl, golda "goldie" dina. only 3 hours of labor from start to finish and recovery is a breeze second time around (or maybe it's just because i got a full night's sleep, woke up, started contracting, took a shower, went to hospital, got epidural, and there she was!)
i'm still trying to remember how to operate these newborn babies. so much comes right back to you (nursing was easy) but i have no clue how her sleep works and i think this one is gassy. i dunno, there seems to be more crying than i'm used to but i could just be remembering wrong.
ada is very excited about "baby" but there has definately been more acting out/negative attention seeking. i'm trying to make a big effort to put her first and we have had some time alone in the am since she wakes up earlier than the baby so far.
i'm thinking about looking into 1,2,3 magic although i'm not into time-outs so much (i'm not sure if teh 3 = timeout...i'll have to see). i think we just need some heavy consistancy here, maybe more than with other kids cause she's so strong willed and independant and i think her moms and pops need a system more than she does! anybody tried it? heard anything about it?
