Lovin' these little toes right nowNot only do they look similar, but they have similar baby needs, like the need for constant nursing (or just soothing via sucking) and the inability to sleep when put down in the bassinet. Though Jude is more laid-back than Soren was, I still see similar temperaments, including their incredible neck strength and alertness. Jude is easier to sooth, not just by breast, and he isn't as hysterical with his cries as Soren was.
All in all, we're managing ok. I will admit I'm a bit lonely, and often overwhelmed by two kids. Mornings are tough, and it doesn't help that it's nearly 100 degrees outside, so we're stuck in the house most of the day. I've been dreaming of the beach and pool, though due to my c-section, I can't swim for quite a while, maybe not all summer.
Any tips for occupying a 3 year old while holding/nursing a baby?
