Our baby is 6 months old!! I can't believe how quickly time flew by with this little one. When I had just Arizona at home, I felt like my days were so long. I think I figured out why that is. Having just one child- you're entire focus is on this one kid who doesn't talk to you, who needs attention 24/7 and sometimes you just feel like bedtime will never come. With a third child, I'm able to do more while the older kiddos entertain her. It also helps that my older girls want to go to the park and playdates with friends and that fills the awake time of our baby. It might also be that this time around as a mother of three- I've gotten used to this. Going from one kid to two was simple for me. At first it was scary to try and balance it all but I was more confident when it came to nursing and understanding my baby's cues. I was hoping it would be the same with a third, but man, did the transition from two to three rock my world. Each girl had different needs and it didn't help that we just bought a house and were in the middle of a move. And....lets not forget that I was dealing with a kidney infection and mastisis weeks apart from each other. It was rough.
Adeline has been our easiest baby though. She is so content and happy and at 4 months- she became the smiliest baby. With the other girls- we had to work for those smiles. We just look at Adeline and immediately we get this cute open mouthed smile.
She is the best shopping partner and best outdoor companion. When the girls want to go to the park, she is happy to sit in her carseat and watch everyone run around. This was her first time in a swing and she loved it. I see many more park dates in our future.
