I have a lot of things I want to write about. I have 3 notebooks, each filled with notes and dozens of blog posts in the making.
It’s more fun to sit around and do this all day.
She has huge feet. I wonder if this means she’ll be tall?
She was pretty long at birth. None of her newborn clothing fit, her legs/feet were too long and all jammed up in the footed part, so I had to skip to the 3-6 month sizes.
She’s already growing. I can tell. Her head is bigger around. Her trunk is bigger. It makes sense because she nurses ALL THE TIME. I haven’t had a baby nurse this much since my oldest. (Of course, I am not complaining because she sleeps a long time at night… like 12 hours, waking only once to nurse. Which is just fine by me!)
She also shares a teensy bit of evening fussiness with the oldest too.
I’ve noticed that newborns have nursing personalities. She is definitely a Barracuda/Piranha type. My boobs are killing me. Which seems odd, since *I* definitely know what I’m doing.
I think she has a touch of tongue tie. I spotted it and the midwives did too. Her Pediatrician said it was very mild and probably wouldn’t cause any problems. But the soreness tells me otherwise.
I think I’ll have him take another look or refer me to a specialist at her 2 month checkup.
A few blog posts I have really enjoyed reading (since I’m not writing many!):
– Headmistress at the Common Room talked about dealing with teens, especially adolescent boys. I LOVED this post.
– At Simple Homeschool, one of my favorite bloggers, Anne at Modern Mrs. Darcy asks: “What About Me? On Taking Care of Yourself As a Homeschool Mom“.
– Experimental Wifery shared 10 Lies You Tell Yourself and How To See Through Them. The technical term for these lies is “cognitive bias”. Cognitive bias is a huge interest of mine. I’ve even had the oldest kid read through a list of common biases and sort of memorize them.
Genevieve at the MamaNatural show was sweet enough to announce Victoria’s arrival. You can watch her show below. Seventh Heaven, indeed.
