I still cannot believe we have two. Children, that is.
This week we've seen a turning point with Charlotte, she gave us a seven hour stretch the night after Easter, and six hours last night. The relief my body is feeling is indescribable, to sleep that long in one stretch is heavenly. She also has stopped being fussy in the evenings, instead becoming a pleasant little companion as Scott and I crash on the couch to watch Lost or catch up on our day. She's cooing and smiling and responding to us, such fun as she becomes a real part of the family.
Sam continues to adjust, we've had some rough moments but this morning felt normal. He was trying to make her smile as she sat propped up in the Boppy pillow, and succeeded brilliantly. The moment her face broke into a huge, gummy grin, he looks up at me and says, "She so booootiful."
Oh my heart can't even handle the joy.
