Was the question one of my closest friends asked me last week. No, I'm not used to it. Not just the part where I have a girl, which doesn't make much difference yet (except for the whole frilly dress thing ;) but the part where I have three kiddos. Three! Three feels like a lot. Especially when they're at such different stages of their little lives. Grunty teen to the left, cuddly newborn to the right and spirited preschooler in the middle.
But there's something else different too. When the teen and the preschooler were born I felt almost immediately like they had always been with me.
And can a baby be polite? I feel like even her cry is unobtrusive.
Remember her kickboxing moves in my belly? I thought for sure she would be Miss Activity (well, Mr Activity) but so far she is one cool customer. Loves her feeds and cuddles during the day and her sleep at night. She slept for eleven hours last night. Oh my.
Feeling super, super lucky and in love? Absolutely.
So, I'm curious. If you have multiple kiddos did you feel like your relationship with each of them was different right from birth? I'd love to hear!
p.p.s I just know the man is going to see this post and ask me why I put a doily on our child's head. What are your thoughts on head accessories for infants? Cute? Weird? You can tell me :)
