Eloise has a bit of night & day confusion right now, she tends to be most awake (and most hungry) from about 1-4 am. She hates being swaddled & isn’t a huge fan of taking a paci, totally different than her big sis. Those were two of the biggest soothers for Harper, so it’s a whole new ballgame for us, which we had a feeling would happen. It sorta feels like I am a first time mom all over again. On the plus side, she is such a little snuggle bug. She loves being held, curls right up in your neck & drapes her arms around you. I mean, it doesn’t get much sweeter than that.
Harper is doing an amazing job as a big sister, every day I am so proud of her I could just cry. She loves to give Eloise kisses on her head & feet, loves to push her button to turn on her rockaRoo & wants to hold her for just about five seconds. She also tells her “no whining” when she starts to cry or fus. Brandon & I died laughing when we heard her say it for the first time. Having a newborn around really emphasizes how grown up Harper is & it is so bittersweet.
