And although I'm starting to feel more normal again, I'm super anxious about my six week check up. Because I cannot. Stop. EATING! I am soooo starving all the time. I am always so hungry when I'm breastfeeding, but I swear it is worse this time than it has ever been before! I have this horrible fear that I am going to step on the scale at my doctor's office and find out that I actually weigh MORE than I did at 9 months pregnant! And I am being totally serious.
The novelty of a new sister has not worn off at all for my kiddos. They still fight over who gets to hold her first, who has held her the longest, and so on. I am glad that they like her though. :)
I'm having a lot of bittersweet moments as I watch her grow. When Monkey was born, we hadn't really made the decision that we were done having kids. So I watched her grow, and never really thought about it being the last time I would experience watching one of my babies grow up. It was later on that we decided we were probably done having kids. Then our precious little surprise came along, and knowing that she is our last, all of her little moments really tug at my heartstrings. I want to capture every moment and hold onto it forever.
I didn't know she had the skills, but Cowgirl put this sweet video together, featuring Baby Girl's newborn photo shoot. I asked her to make an altered version that kept her info private, so I could post it here on my blog.
I'm not gonna lie, I totally got choked up while watching it. But it was nothing compared to the full on Daddy -sobs coming from my husband.
I promise that tomorrow I'll talk about more than just Baby Girl! There are some other fun things going on around here. :)
