Weekend photos

We did quite a bit this weekend. Buddy swam like a fish for hours. She can pretty much swim without floaties but for worry free fun we strap them on her.
These girls are two peas in a pod man. Same same same same!
Buddy loves jelly beans!
Neat brewery!
Reminds me of our Jersey peeps.
Have a good day guys!

Haiku Friday

I got a little 
Fat baby with brown hair 
And grayish blue eyes.

I got a little 
Five year old with crazy curls
And chocolate eyes.

Green eyed, red haired babe.
Brown eyes, black hair for the mom.
That's my family.

Loving that maternity leave coincides with summertime because it means people are able to stop by on their vacations!

Like, a month ago:

Tootsie and her family stopped by. There is little Opal with Buddy.

Then, just last week, Matt and Sam stopped by:

Yesterday Mila and Gabby came for a visit and it was so wonderful:

Who is next??

sleep, food, and the like. for posterity

I was just reading what Buddy was like as a 6 week old and it seemed a lot more complicated. Haha. Her sleep anyways. We had two people involved and it included babe getting up at 2am to do a feeding. I'm betting everything was more complicated because there were bottles involved.

As of right now and basically since she was born, I nurse her every one to three hours in the day. She cat naps in the morning but takes a marathon 3 - 4 hour nap in the afternoon.

She gets a little bit "fussy" from about 6-8pm, which means she mostly wants to nurse the whole time. That's generally fine except other people in this house have to eat too! So I haven't figured out a way to nurse and make dinner. She hollers a bit or babe or Buddy try to keep her occupied.

Anyways, around 8:30 or 9, babe gives her a bottle that I have pumped throughout the day. He puts her in her little bassinette and there she sleeps til about 2am.Then she wakes up usually at 5am then for the day around 7am.

I have to say I am feeling lucky. The last couple of nights Josie has slept til 330 the first time and I was in heaven.

So, there you go. That's the routine as it were. We're not too wedded to a schedule but when I break it down in writing I can kind of see it there.
