just another child surviving its older sibling's love
Of course there's nothing like talking about your kids for making you into a liar.
But this afternoon she was awake, probably just thinking about life, while I sorted the 0-3 month clothes from the baby bin, then she lay on the floor by a highly affectionate Norah with measuring cups and successfully avoided being banged in the head by them, and chilled while I made dinner. Being awake during the day and not crying = good baby, right? But then how do you explain her lack of regular nighttime sleep and her amnesia about latching for breastfeeding the past two nights? BABIES, I tell you what. Try to pin them down and they will show you who's boss.
