5 Days

The last 5 days seem to be so busy that I don't feel like I have had time to fully relax.  Today Audrey decided that not only would she nurse of and on from 10:30 pm to 3:30 am (then up at 4:30 again) but she would do that also from noon to 4!  My hopes of catching some sleep were dashed because we had a weight check for her in the morning.  But somewhere I must be getting a little bit of sleep because I am not completely useless...  In anycase she is holding steady at 6 lbs 1 oz, we are hoping to see some upward trend in the weight by Thursday.  She needs to learn not to fall asleep after 5 min. of nursing, she won't wake up despite all efforts.  The one thing that wakes her up is to put her down, then she realizes 10 min. later that she isn't still nursing.  She will learn, it is only day 5!!  But somehow she needs to at least give me 1/2 hour of sleep in between feeds at night, an hour would be even better!!

Celia is not reverting back to baby behavior like some kids do when siblings come, she is instead declaring that she is basically an adult- she is now 4.  We are reminding her that all though she is a big girl, she is still 3.  Last night she became really mad at Pete and plopped her self down in front of my Mom and started counting on her fingers how old she thought she was- 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.   She has an attitude and after things calm down I have got to deal with some back talk that is happening, but for now we are giving her a bit of a grace period.  She is awesome with Audrey though, we haven't really seen jealousy and she is very interested in her.  Funny thing though someone told me that when you have another one your oldest looks so much bigger. Well for me it is the opposite, she seems like such a baby to me, even though she is declaring herself all grown up.
