I'm still on a "birth of my dreams" high. I hope it never ends.
Elowyn is doing well. She is quite the grower and quite the sleeper. I didn't know that babies actually came this way.
I'm embarrassed to admit how well she sleeps, but let's just say our son was 2 before he slept this well and I hope I'm not jinxing myself. She is a bit of a night owl and loves to sleep in, a Mama's girl. I put her in her Amby Hammock to start the night and if she wakes she joins us in bed. Many nights I "wear" her to sleep in a fleece pouch.
She's very smiley and has even given me one laugh so far. I was singing the Carpenter's "Close To You," and she did a laugh that sounded like she was hyperventilating. As Dh says, I sing "in the key of me," so apparently she agrees.
Ds adores her so much. I'm so lucky that we've not had any jealousy issues, but we do have to remind him to be gentle now & then or speak quietly if we're at that pivotal "just fell asleep" moment. Ds is really the sweetest though. Elowyn HATES the car and he has to sit back there right next to her screaming her head off. He says, "It's okay baby, I'm here..."
She & Ds, so far, are absolutely complete opposites in every way I can think of!
I feel quite badly as she's probably cried as much in her short 3 months as Ds did in his 4 years. She just has to wait more than he did, and she's not so patient, plus she has to go in the car that she detests all the time. I feel so bad, I think it's desensitized me to her sadness.
