Despite our unsuccessful breastfeeding experience with Harper, things are going surprisingly well this time. Eloise has been doing great latching & has been nursing so well! I totally did not see that coming, I brought my dreaded pump expecting the worst. Holding her in the early hours of the morning while she nurses has been amazing, I am feeling really optimistic this time & hoping things continue to go well once my milk comes in.
Harper has been to the hospital twice now, she is in love with her sister & always asks if she can “give her a pet?” (pet her) and rubs her hair. She gets really upset when Eloise is crying, I’m sure she will get used to it eventually though. We think they look alike in a lot of ways, but not identical. My mom swears that Eloise looks just like me when I was born, which is funny because we thought Harper looked just like Brandon as a baby.
Harper is such a great big sister so far, I love seeing them together & can’t wait to see how they interact once we bring her home!
