We are adjusting fine. Sometimes evenings are a little shakey because she is fussy from about 8-10 pm.

Alexis is 7.5 weeks! Hard to believe she is that old already

Her smile makes me smile! Also when she coos!!!

How are you and your hubby/so/df adjusting to new baby?

We are adjusting quite fine, I do find I am a bit on edge if I am trying to feed Kade and the toddlers are around, cus he gets so fussy. Also the lack of sleep for me sucks BUTT.

How old is your new baby?

2 weeks 4 days old

What about your baby makes you two smile?

The way he looks at us when he focuses, and the cuddles he gives when he goes to sleep. (honestly EVERYTHING of Kade makes me smile)

How are you and your hubby/so/df adjusting to new baby? pretty well other than sleepless nights since this baby seems like a night owl, and we're currently taking turns doing night shift...and right now i'm wondering how i'll survive when he goes back to work after this coming week with two toddlers
How old is your new baby? 3 weeks 3 days
What about your baby makes you two smile? her letting out of gas was enough not only to make us smile but also laugh.

are adjusting really well. Dh was back to work 3 days after she was born, but his dad has been here since then. Its been great having him around to help out, makes the transition that much easier. He is only here until tomorrow so Thursday will be my first day just the 2 of us!!!
Ava is 8 days old
And I love her little gas smiles! They happen so often I think she is actually smiling..usually in her sleep but I love it.
