4 Months

Monthly Jessyyy

This little beauty is already over 4 months old and weighs 16lbs 11.6oz. She is 24.75in long and already has her two bottom teeth (which I find crazy because Brynlee got her first tooth at 8 months!!). Accompanying her two little chompers is non-stop drool, tons of snuggles & the want and need to put everything in her mouth – including her adorable little toes! Her favourite things are watching her sister play, jumping [falling asleep] in the jolly jumper & bath time. She can roll from her tummy to her back and enjoys popping her soother in & out of her mouth.

Things I want to remember about right now:

  • how her tiny jaw quivers ever so slightly when she nurses
  • the feeling of her body getting heavier & heavier as she drifts off to sleep
  • the sound of her adorable baby raspy voice as she coos & babbles

Navigating Life With Two

muttart-4

This week my Mom and I took the girls to the Muttart Conservatory. I’ve realized that planning activities in the morning – whether it be a special outing or a quick trip to the park, makes life with two kids much easier. I’ve recently made it a priority to stick to routine and be back home by nap time. This is because Brynlee experienced a significant sleep regression when we switched her to her big girl room and again when Jess showed up.

First Few Weeks With Jess

Jessica

Jessica Olive is now 5 weeks old and is as sweet as can be. She currently has bright blue eyes just like her sister did as a newborn and the most amazing smelling chocolate brown hair. I am convinced she’s going to end up looking just like Brynlee with her long eyelashes and little button nose, but people keep saying they can see more of me. Ya well, I’m not going to get my hopes up just yet.

Easter Wabbit

Easter-2

This past weekend was Easter and we spent the Sunday out at the lake. It has also been the last few days of Craig’s time off. I am so thankful that he was able to take four weeks off to help adjust to a life of four. However, I have no idea how I’m going to manage a toddler and a newborn without him. Thank goodness for Peppa Pig and Paw Patrol… and hopefully some sunny days ahead!
