What to muse about today?

Ashlin was born 21 days ago. Three weeks. Amazing how quickly time has passed. I cant believe she’s three weeks old already.

She’s mostly a sweet, well behaved baby.  She has lungs and doesn’t hesitate to use them when she’s unhappy about something – hungry, dirty, gassy.  We’ve been putting her to sleep at night in her pappasan lamb, the one that Teagan loved so much.  For some reason she’s not a big fan of lying completely flat.  It could be gas, she’s much harder to burp than her sister was.  Teagan used to rattle windows.  Maybe we need to wait another week for Ashlin to follow in her sister’s footsteps.  Maybe the ginormous burps start at four weeks.  LOL!

She also doesn’t seem to like being swaddled, though I do try at least part of the time she’s sleeping.  Her days and nights are mostly straightened out, thankfully.  Eating schedule is pretty solid 3-3.5 hours, with a little cluster feeding between 7-11pm.  Not too bad.

So far, she hasn’t protested too much about being dragged out.  She went to Babies R Us, Target, BJ’s, Stop & Shop, all before she was a week old.  She’s been on walks in the rain, to an orchard on a chilly and windy day.  Blustery Day!

All in all, she’s following in her sister’s footsteps.  We just may keep her.  LOL!

    Kat, things are slowly getting a bit more calm… more routine. I still haven’t really been along with the two of them for an extended period of time, and I’m not looking forward to it. Not yet anyway. LOL!

      Kat: Thanks!! I know it’ll be ok. Now would be the easiest time to do it too… Ashlin is so easy now, as she gets older she’ll become more and more demanding…
