Our sweet Sadie is one month old! The month has flown by and I already can’t imagine life without her! She is the perfect addition to our little family and my heart bursts with love for BOTH my babies. I seriously can’t believe they are both mine. Love them so much. It really is true what they say…..when you have that second baby your heart just doubles in size.
Sadie is such a good baby. She’s a great eater and was up to 10 lbs 6.5 oz at her 2 week check up, which was AMAZING. She’s starting to get little rolls on her arms and legs and I’m obsessed! So far she looks a lot like Hudson did when she was a baby and also looks just like me. She has a tiny bit of strawberry blonde fuzz on her head just like big brother did….so fingers crossed we have another blue-eyed redhead! Someone pinch me!
Hudson has been a great big brother. I mentioned here that he wasn’t sleeping well (as in fighting us for over 2 hours at bedtime and waking up several times in the night). Well, I am happy to report things are MUCH better! I think it deserves it’s own post…so I’ll work on that for you. Overall Hudson has been an amazing big brother. He loves to help me by bringing me Sadie’s diapers, burp cloths, and toys. He kisses her gently on the head all the time and loves to hold her hand. I couldn’t ask for more! He has a few times asked me to put her down so that I can play with him or acted out because he was jealous, but generally he is really sweet around her.
Just like her big brother, we have been blessed with a great eater, but not a great sleeper. Sadie sleeps about a 3 hour stretch at night and then usually sleeps in 2 hour stretches after that. So it’s not all sunshine and roses over here….we are tired! But I know how quickly this time goes and soon enough she’ll sleep for longer stretches. Sadie would probably sleep better if she could sleep on her tummy. I let her nap on the couch next to me (while I watch her like a hawk) on her tummy and homegirl loves it. She also sleeps really well while being held….but it’s “back to sleep” for us at bedtime. I’m mean like that!
We just love this sweet girl. Sadie is really easy going unless you are changing her diaper, she’s hungry, or you put her down when she wants to cuddle. I’ve been cuddling her at every possible moment because babies don’t keep. She gives me baby fever and makes me want to have a bunch more babies! We might be in trouble!
