Time to make the donuts…

I went back to work on September 22 – I know, nice timing the day before my birthday. Oh well! It’s been okay – pretty much like I never left (a good thing and a bad thing, I think).

Veronica is finally starting to get back to being her happy self – I’ve missed her! Now that Daddy is doing pick-up after school again, I think she’s finally feeling life is back to normal. I think she’s grown another inch since July, and has apparently been eating very well at her new daycare (although not always at home, but we’ve seen some improvements). She LOVES her baby sister, and wants to do everything with/for/around/to/on her. I’m so happy she hasn’t shown any jealousy toward her. It’s such a relief! She likes to ‘be a baby’ a lot, but she’s also really into mermaids and ballerinas. You can usually catch her singing the tune from the Little Mermaid and flipping her hair around. She is such a good big sister, and ‘shares’ food with Cordelia, puts blankets on her, gives her a binky when she fusses, buckles up her seatbelt, and soothes her just like I do. It’s so cute! 🙂 Now if she’d only use the potty and sleep in the big-girl bed…

Cordelia, meanwhile, is getting much better at tummy time, and can push up pretty far (when she feels like it). She spits up every time I put her in the Bumbo (diaper pressing on her belly?), so she’s not in it as much as V was. She’s almost reaching for things, and will bat at the toys in the play gym and sometimes even grasps them. She has almost discovered her feet, too (I caught her contemplating them last night). She loves songs being sung to her, especially by Veronica. A quick alphabet song will keep her happy in place of a binky. Kissing noises will always make her smile, and I got her to “laugh” on Saturday by tickling her. She still has a ton of hair, and must be close to (if not more than) 14 pounds by now. I can’t believe how much bigger she is than Veronica was at that age (I’m also pumping twice as much milk this time around, which is a huge accomplishment for me! Yay!). Cordy sleeps really well, and has gone as many as 7 hours between feedings at night. She’s only done it once or twice, but boy was it nice! Except for me waking up every 3 hours anyway…

Alrighty. Time to get back to work. Pictures to be uploaded later!
