Nadia ~ 14 & 15 Weeks (4 & 5 Weeks Adjusted)

I feel like I’ve had a newborn forever. And yes, the newborn stage is so amazing, but also draining, and perhaps it’s all catching up with me. I’m tired. Very tired. The feedings, the crying, it’s a lot. And throw in a 20 month old who is developmentally a 17 month old… Ugh. I don’t recommend kids this close. Although I guess I don’t know it any other way. It is wonderful, at times. But it’s really hard too, and I’m learning it’s okay to feel that way.

So here are updated pictures!

14-weeks

15-weeks

I’m not sure exactly how much Nadia weighs now, but I’m certain it’s over 9 pounds. When I bathe her later today I’ll weigh her. She’s starting to have a bit more awake times, maybe an hour or so after feedings, but overnight she’s been fairly good at going back to sleep as long as I keep the lights low and change her diaper quickly. She has gone as long as 6 hours overnight, but that’s rare, it’s usually closer to 3 hours. The Neocate formula is still working well I think, although she seems to spit up quite a bit, most of which looks like mucus. Her doctor didn’t seem to think that was concerning so I won’t worry. We’re definitely seeing more smiles lately from Nadia and even maybe a few coos. So cute to see. I don’t really remember this stage with Nora, I think I was so stressed over being a new mommy that I missed a lot with Nora.

All things considered I think Nora is handling her new role as big sister rather well. She obviously doesn’t understand that I don’t have as much time for her. When I’m feeding Nadia, Nora tends to act out, I assume looking for attention, like trying to climb over the couch, climbing on me, trying to kick Nadia, etc. Maybe this is her way of knowing I don’t have as much time for her… I tell her no a lot, but she doesn’t seem to stop. Is now the time to get more firm with discipline? She seems too young to me. I guess I need to read a book on toddlers, cause I have so much time to throw that into my daily agenda!

One of Nora’s favorite things is giving her ‘sissy’ as she calls her, kisses!
