I am wondering if anyone has had suprises with their babies. For me Mr #2 is so different from Mr#1 that there have been lots of different suprises, even though technically we are now "experienced" parents.
The first suprise was Emmett's dark hair. Mr. #1 is blonde blonde blonde and was a fat rolly-polly almost 9 pounder. Emmett is small and dark. His hair may change - but when the OB first showed him to me I was so suprised!
Also - BF is SO EASY this time. Mr. #1 had all sorts of latch problems, my milk came in late, I suspect that the hospital snuck him bottles, I gave him a paci before I knew better, got not-so-great advice from a lactation consultant, and seeming gallons of spit-up, etc. Mr. #2 can pretty much latch himself on (already!), handles the abundant milk, doesn't spit up, and gives lots of feeding cues. Easy-peasy!
Oh - and he sleeps pretty well! Both babies have had very easy temperaments - happy and easy going and just pleasant all around. So, that has been very nice.
