So far Hannah is an absolute joy to be around -- she appears content to go with the flow (not even the dog barking or big sister yelling at the top of her lungs phases this little one) and is sleeping well. She slept for 5 hours straight last night! We're working on incorporating more sunshine and walks into our days as I recover, but that 100+ degree heat index is brutal.
Even though trying to juggle a newborn's constant needs with a toddler's demands for attention is pretty challenging, everything seems a bit easier this time around. I guess it's because we are more relaxed and able to trust our instincts instead of being so nervous -- for example, I no longer think my baby is going to end up in therapy if I let her cry for a minute so I can go to the bathroom. :)
Here are some of my favorite parts of Hannah to stare at and touch endlessly -- the ridiculously soft, super blonde (!) baby fuzz behind her ears and her long little legs and toes. What a cutie pie!
