One Week In...

And things are going well. Yes, we are exhausted and yes Katherine was awake from 1:30 to 4:00am last night, but we are doing great. It's amazing how much easier things are the second time around. Don't get me wrong, life is chaotic and I miss getting a four hour stretch of sleep, but the difference is I'm much more confident in my mothering skills. Breastfeeding is going well, Katherine loves the Miracle Blanket (and trust me, it is) and she's thus far a good sleeper and good natured baby. Fingers are crossed this all continues...

Natalie really adores her new sister and isn't too jealous yet. I'm enlisting her as my little helper and she loves to pick out the diapers and the baby outfits for Katherine to wear. For me it's more about time management... trying to get them both to nap at the same time today was a bit of a fiasco.

Besides, when they are this cute, what else really matters?
