3 posts in one day! I think it's a record!
My sister Julie took these precious photos in the hospital... I was so blessed that she took the photos again, becuase when I think back to Judah as a newborn, I think about the photos she took of us, not an actual recollection of that time... I have a HORRIBLE memory.... so it was so awesome that she drove all the way from the dirty dirty, ATL to be with us... ANYways, about Quinn. I have been blessed with another non-crying baby- except when he needs something (fed, changed, held). I am soooo thankful for this too since Judah can sleep thru anything, he has slept thru many a night of Guillermo and I hammering on walls, moving furniture, laughing, friends over talking and he sleeps right thru it, but he wakes up EVERY time Quinn cries at night (which is every time we change his diaper)... so luckily Quinn quiets down as soon as he gets his diaper back on and a bottle in his mouth, therefore Judah goes back to sleep. Quinn has such a sweet temperment, he sleeps a LOT and up until a few days ago, he ate only a little bit (one or one and a half ounces) at each feeding and quite regularly would eat once an hour or every hour and half. Thankfully as of yesterday his appetite seems a lot bigger, drank almost 4 ounces at each feeding and he's sleeping for longer stretches because of it. It's amazing how God gives you strength to get thru the sleepless nights/days. I actually feel rested most of the time, thanks to Guillermo's help- I'm afraid I'll feel and look like a zombie next week when he's back full time all week. I'll keep Judah in daycare two days a week, so he doesn't have a culture shock in march and keeps his schedule. Judah out of the blue has decided that Quinn's name is either Barney or Bunny. It's hard to make out what he's saying, but he made it up all on his own. Judah has only seen Barney two or three times and we read about bunnies all the time, so we're sort of inclined to think he's saying bunny, but Barney is funnier. We're trying to manage Judah's many temper tantrums and show him lots and lots of love, attention and special care. Judah has been at the extremes of emotion for the past two weeks, some of the sweetest sides I've ever seen of him and also the naughtiest... complete disregard for us and obeying..... so that's that! If you've stuck thru this entire novel, you're great. :) Time to go... finally two babies down for naps and I have a house to clean and laundry to fold and desperately need a snuggle from my hubby.
