Getting used to two

My word it’s hard! It’s weird that it is both incredibly familiar and totally alien. We did hundreds of Leo nappies, smooth but for his arcing wees, but she’s different. She clenches her knees to her chest and we have to either wait for ages to catch a stretched moment, or wrestle her, to get them on. (By the way, girls can do an arcing wee as well…)
She is much more windy than Leo, and a better night sleeper too. These things may be linked. She’s go three or four hours at night without a feed – but in the day she just eats, sicks most of it back up and then eats again. And she always has a part of the day where she just grumbles and cries. This feels like it’s lasting forever, but everyday it does pass and she eventually goes to sleep. We have booked a cranial osteopath again – maybe there’s something she can do about it, other parents have found this successful. But then, Athene said her second was like this for the first two months – and she’s placid, healthy and BIG.
Leo is still really into her. Coming back form nursery, he asks if ‘mummy and Imogen’ are at home, and his first act is to look for them.
He is also looking forward to his birthday tomorrow too – he is very excited and it may be hard to get him to sleep tonight! We can’t believe he is three already – and looking massive now Imogen is here.
