Getting to Know You

It's been a real kick getting to know little miss Arya Hope.  I know she's only just shy of 3 weeks old and we've barely caught a glimpse of her personality, but this is what I know about her so far.

1.  She's a real pip to try and get down for a nap.  She requires lots of walking and bouncing and shhhh'ing.  It can get a bit tedious, but luckily once she's asleep she's out for a few hours which makes the battle worth it.

2.  She doesn't like sleeping in her basinette, but she loves her rock and play sleeper.  I wish they had it when Isabella was an infant.

3.  She loves the boob and it can instantly soothe her no matter what.  She's nursing like a champ and has already gained almost a pound.

4.  She gives one good long 3 hour nap in the day time with a few other 1-2 hour naps.  At night she can go anywhere from 3-6 hours at a stretch before eating.  Sometimes she goes right back to sleep after eating and sometimes she thinks it's party rock central in my bedroom.

5.  The kid could be a super pooper.  I mean for real, she is just constantly pooping or sharting.

6.  She loves to be held.  She's coming around to the bouncy seat.  She's not too sure about the swing.  She can chill out in a carrier.

7.  She's a barracuda nurser.  That girl can tear me up.

8.  She makes the funniest little faces and I could just nom nom nom on her fat cheeks.

9.  She sleeps through anything.  We took her to Isabella's last day of school picnic and her dress rehearsal for her dance recital and she just slept through the entire th
ing.

10.  She's just the sweetest little thing.  From her dark brown mullet to her teeny tiny tush to her skinny little chicken legs.  I'm so in love with this tiny little girl, even when she's nap fighting me.

Oh I just love her! Isn't BFing so much easier the 2nd time around? Still not a walk in the park, but better. And I just wanna say that it makes me really happy that you said "sharting" - one of my favorite words! Ha!
