It's been three months with three kids and we're all doing remarkably well (meaning we're all still alive anyway)! The adjustment will take some time, more so for the boys than anyone. I feel like a veteran at this baby thing by now, but she's, simply put, a much easier baby than the boys were. Sunny is in bed around 12 hours each night and actually sleeps most of it! Jack woke every hour to two hours his entire first 18 months...it was SO hard and I was SO tired! Ever slept well his first three months and then (teething hit) he woke several times a night, and still only sometimes sleeps through the night. Sunny, however, Sweet Sunny, she SLEEPS! There's been a few nights she has only woken once and normally she only wakes two or three times until about 3/4am when she starts being a bit more restless (sometimes). She also naps...sometimes for 4 hours at a time! This was inconceiveable to me before. Usually she only sleeps about 45 minutes at a time, but when she wakes she is content and rarely cries to get picked up immediately.Now that she's older and more alert she's up more, but very happy, smiles a lot, laughs, and 'talks' to me. I've just in the past week or two, started putting her down on her belly on a blanket and she'll play with a toy (usually Sofie Giraffe) or roll to her back and just enjoy life. She adores her swing, it was the biggest (apart from her carseat) investment we spent on her and well worth it! She'll often fall asleep in there if she didn't nursing, or lay quietly.
We are all very much in love with her. I was so unsure about having a girl, but now am ecstatic with her and excited for some more girlieness in the house!
The boys are head over heals, but especially Ever - he can't get enough of her. "Baby Sista" he calls her, he gets a high voice, "oh baby sista" he says:). He likes to tickle, hug, kiss, and just be around her. He also hits or grabs her once in a while, then immediately says sorry. Definitely seeming to test boundaries! Jack will grab him and get mad, telling me he needs to protect her. He also adores her of course ("isn't she just so cute!?!" he'll say).
They are still adjusting to life as we know it now. Ever still wants to be a baby in a way, he's a mama's boy, very whiny when he's tired. He's also so very cute right now. Everything he says is too funny, I can listen to him all day. He loves his big brother too, they play together always or are asking where the other is. They fight a lot too, but are starting to resolve it better on their own now. Jack's really growing up, he's also gotten quite a bit of attitude lately, I can't say he's always pleasant to be around! He's so social still, always loving to play with everyone, making friends everywhere.
Though it's an adjustment now, going from two to three littles, it's already fun. It's fun to have a little girl around now and looking forward to them all growing up together!
