I have mentioned that Brynna has an indentation on her back. After seeing a specialist and getting an ultrasound, it seems to be harmless. They told me she has a sacral dimple and I just have to make sure to keep it clean. The pediatrician will keep an eye on it but it shouldn't ever cause her any health problems. So that's a huge relief!
Anyway, Brynna is pretty much the easiest baby ever. :) She is fine hanging out in her vibrating seat or swing for a bit, which is SO nice because I'm able to get a few things done or spend time with Kaylee. Aside from being a little fussy sometimes because of gas, she never cries. I haven't been able to figure out what's causing her gas, I might do an elimination diet if it gets any worse. I think she may just have to grow out of it though.
We seem to be on a pretty good schedule right now where both of the kids go to bed by 10, or 9 on a good day. We've had a couple bad days where they were up until 11 but through extreme luck, they always seem to go to bed and wake up right around the same time. They've both been sleeping through the night for the most part too. We sure got lucky with this baby, she is such a good sleeper! If she doesn't drift off during her last feeding, I just lay her in her bed with a pacifier and she goes to sleep by herself. And she only wakes up 2 or 3 times a night to eat, it's pretty great. I really hope this continues!
She has started smiling and cooing this week and it's the sweetest thing! I swear my heart feels like it's going to explode every time she looks right at me and smiles when I talk to her. And seeing her interact with Kaylee is just adorable. I love how they already have their own special bond. I still have to watch and make sure Kaylee is gentle with her because she just doesn't understand how fragile babies are, but for the most part she is such a good big sister. She rushes to comfort her when she cries, and most of the time manages to get to her before I do!
We're still exclusively breastfeeding. It's so weird and awesome to know she is not only surviving but thriving on just my milk. I'm really happy that we haven't had any of the breastfeeding problems I had with Kaylee. I'm also happy that we've found a bottle she can drink from without choking. Yay for Nuk slow flow! It's kind of nice to be able to give Steven a bottle of breastmilk for her while I go take a nap. :)
Now that we've switched to cloth diapers, she's wearing a lot of 3-6 month clothes now. I already put away her newborn stuff and I think I'll be putting away her 0-3 month stuff soon. Cloth diapering is going well so far. We're using Flips one size velcro covers with those old-fashioned cotton diapers... I guess they are called pre-folds? And I also have Flips stay-dry polyester inserts which are less bulky, but I prefer cotton next to her skin because it's more natural.
I really want to get into babywearing, it seems really neat and helpful. I have a baby carrier and a sling, I just need to get the hang of using them. My mom used the sling the other day and tries to show me how but I couldn't seem to find a comfortable position. :( But I'm not giving up just yet.
Hmm, what else. I can't think of anything except I am just loving being a mommy to 2. Yes, I'm tired all the time, but I can't think of a better feeling in the world than snuggling with both my little girls. I can't wait to keep watching them grow up!
