Amanda - I don't know how you did it! I can't get myself to do any sort of packing! (maybe since the baby just went down for her cat nap, I should be packing instead, haha) Kudos to you for getting it done all while entertaining Maribel. She is so stinkin' cute!!!
Alisa - I attributed her extreme crankiness/fussiness throughout the day to teething, but now I'm thinking it may not be teething, after all. I don't know! I'm so confused. She has been better lately since I've been logging her nap times/feeding times to get a better understanding of her schedule. Ever since her 3 month growth spurt hit, she has regressed. She used to be able to give me 5-6 hour stretch of sleep, but now we're back to every 2-3 hours.
Very exhausting. Love the picture of Evelyn! She's beautiful! Can't wait to see more! We didn't get professional pictures of Athena taken until she was 3 months, so don't feel so bad. We are major germophobes here, so we didn't want her exposed to anything, especially it being a flu season and all. Oh yea, aren't those smiles the best? It still gets me every time!
Deftonesmo - Grady is such a gorgeous little man! We're still co-sleeping with Athena in our bed despite having a mini crib next to us. Athena and I found it more comforting sleeping next to each other, even though we're BOTH VERY light sleepers! It stinks, but like you said, it makes breastfeeding a lot easier in the middle of the night! She used to love cuddling next to us when she was just a few weeks old. Now, she's more of a Ms. Independent and likes her space, lol. Sometimes, I have to go sleep in the guest room because she takes over my side of the bed by somehow getting into a horizontal position. When we move into our new place in a week or so, we're hoping to transition her back into the mini crib. She's literally coming in the middle of DH's and my intimate life, lol. Hubby's complaining.
MamaBoo - So sorry to hear your son developed a cold sore
Here are a few pics of Athena and her fam
