I was really worried while I was pregnant that Eleanor was going to be like Charlotte was during the first months (colicky and never slept during the day) but so far that is not the case and at this point......almost 4 weeks old I doubt she will have a complete change in personality and start non stop crying. Phew! One of the biggest complaints that I have about this baby is that she seems to always nurse, poop and then immediately falls asleep. Which is excellent in the sense that she isn't having trouble pooping, or falling asleep, but it's not fun to have to wake her up to change her diaper after she has already fallen sleep, and then usually I have to start all over again and nurse her and then put her to sleep. It's not really a bad thing, I just wish she would get the pooping done before the sleeping! :o)
Overall things are going really well! Eleanor is a great baby and she seems to fit right in. We've been pretty busy since she was born and she really has a go with the flow attitude. I can tell that her first smile is getting close and I'm really excited for when she becomes a little more responsive and can interact with the girls.....I know they are looking forward to that as well. Dan and I are tired, but that is to be expected and in the long run doesn't last very long. It has been really nice having my parents here, they have been such an amazing help to us. I am really bummed that they leave tomorrow and if I'm honest I'm a little bit terrified of having to do this all on my own! I know it will be fine and we will adapt, but I don't doubt it will be a bit hairy for a while. If anyone wants to come and visit/stay with us, you are more than welcome! :o)
Eleanor never gets left alone unless I put her in her bed
I really don't like tummy time when they are so little!
It makes me sad to see them face planted.
