Gabi is 2 weeks old

Today Gabi is two weeks old. It seems like a lot more than two weeks ago that I was in the hospital. It is a distant memory. Anyway, Gabi is doing great. She sleeps well (during the day). My most difficult time is definitely in the morning. I’m having a brutally hard time waking up in the morning after being up so much over night. I know I went through this same thing with Rachel, but it seems harder now. I hope Gabi ends up being as good a sleeper as Rachel has become.

Gabi “singing” at the top of her lungs.

Rachel “singing” at the top of her lungs when she was two weeks old.
Proud big sister.

I love this picture of Rachel. She is such a big girl now. In case you can’t tell what she is doing, she is chillin’ on my computer desk chair drawing. You can see the sticker she got from Wal-Mart on her hand.
What a great family!

  1. Ya know, I had HARD time getting out of bed with Sophia more than I did with Wesley. I *think* it’s because with one kid, you don’t realize how tired you are because you can seriously sleep when they sleep, but with TWO, you have to always be up pretty much, because they both don’t usually sleep at the same time!

  2. I love the “singing” pictures of both of them! The picture of Rache holding Gabi, she looks like the baby alive doll. you’ve got a couple of cute girls!

  3. What’s *great* about those two “singing” pictures is that I was in charge both times.

    Anyway, that is a great picture of Rachel. She’s really starting to get the hang of life. I didn’t know if she’d be as advanced as some of the kids that I was watching in the senior nursery, but she definitely will be.

  4. Tammy,
    I have gone back and forth on that for a long time now. As soon as I am convinced she is left handed she starts doing more with her right hand, but as soon as I start thinking she is right handed she goes back to her left hand. I’m pretty sure now that she is left handed, but it is still a little bit up in the air.

  5. I’m with the pp’s–singing pictures are great! I got some great advice from my VT when my boys were small. She said take naps when they do. If they didn’t sleep, the TV made a great babysitter. I’d put baby gates up so no one could escape and snore away! Also, try basil oil. You can get it in the essential oils section of the health food store. I used to mix a little bit into some baby lotion and put it on their tummies. It will get them to sleep in about 10 minutes, and they love the massage they get when I rub it on.

  6. I love the pictures! You don’t want to hear our sleeping adventures with Michael – you’d get depressed. Nicholas was a great sleeper, though, so I can relate to what you’re going through! Can we Skype you later today? What time is good?
