Oh dear, sweet, (often) forgotten Nora... You are now 2 months old and continue to be such a great baby! Your strong willed, toddler brother takes up so much of your parents' energy and attention, but that does not mean that you are not as loved or adored (because you are).
|How could you not love this sweet face (and matching sweet demeanor).|
Your brother loves on you dearly (although sometimes too much and too aggressively), but he has good intentions. He asks to hold you and play with you and get his picture taken with you. It's very sweet and I hope it continues until you're both old and grey.
Nora bug, you've been such a great baby. So patient and laid back, which has helped tremendously when mama's had to deal with you and your brother on her own. When you're not sleeping, you love to talk, smile and laugh. It's so fun to talk to you and get you to laugh and smile because you forget how little newborns interact.
We finally transitioned you to your crib this week for nighttime sleeping and you took to it like a champ. I'm hoping you inherited some good sleeping genes as well like your brother did (although he could use a refresher course on sleeping through the night in his own bed. Could you talk to him about that?). We haven't started you on a day time schedule yet, but it's still a little early for that (I think).
Speaking of schedules, your schedule is about to be changed up a bit. Unfortunately, mama has to go back to work (boo), but the good news is that you get to hang out with Adelia and Callan! I know you guys are going to have loads of fun together and I can't wait to hear about all your adventures.
Nora bug... I hope you know how much we love you. I'm sorry that you sometimes are ignored, but I promise to make it up to you some day. Your dad, brother and I are so blessed to have you in our lives and that you are such a happy, healthy baby. There have been too many reminders these past few months of how tragic and unfair life can be and you are truly a light in mine.
Happy 2 months muffin.
