Updates....been behind, but I'm trying. Adelaide is not sleeping as well as I'd like, but not horribly. She must be growing, beacuse it has recently improved quite a bit. Isabelle has developed the ability to cry everytime Adelaide does and the girls can NEVER (seriously NEVER) nap at the same time.
I am exhausted, but having lots of fun watching two baby girls grow up together. Isabelle's character continues to develop and she is completely & totally ridiculous. She is hilarious. SO SO much drama, excitement, over the top loving, cuddly, outgoing and involved in everyone's business. She is very outgoing and always makes new friends at the park (this girl does not understand playing alone). She is an amazing toddler and i see the 'terrible 2' moments. Tantrum central is our house from time to time and Isabelle has learned to go to her room to cry. Adelaide is growing like a weed! At 8 weeks, she is already 12 pounds, 4 ounces (completely breastfeed)....Isabelle was 10 pounds, 15 ounces for reference. Scary. Adelaide continues to hold on to the a billion zits and her deep blue eyes (TBD). We are adjusting and Andrew is doing a wonderful job helping out with everything! We still cook meals at home and go to sleep at 9pm (ish). Adelaide has gotten used to our routine already...something I'm most pleased about. OH and she can put herself to sleep!! WOO HOOO!!!!
Our house is a wreck. but i'm nearly done christmas shopping. I also finished up the girls christmas hairbows, so we're off to the Bass Pro Shop to visit Santa tomorrow! We'll see how that goes, last year Isabelle thought she was dying when we put her on Santa's lap. We've been hyping up Santa this year and he is all over our house. We even have our own Elf on the Shelf, "Tata", so we're hoping the surprise of seeing Santa tomorrow will be a positive one. We'll post pictures either way. ;o)
Our Christmas cards are on the way! Merry Christmas! Love to All!
