Easier - she's not just a lump anymore. A lot less floppy, too.

Harder - pumping is tough. I'm not keeping up.
Also harder - she sleeps less these days. More entertainment is required now.
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.

Easier - she sleeps through the night and does not cry as often.

Harder - she wants to put everything in her mouth, including blankets and bibs.

Easier to nurse and interact with.
Harder because he's constantly moving around and sticking things in his mouth.

Easier to nurse and figure out what she wants or wants to do.

Harder because she is starting to teeth, and is grouchy

Easier - coz she sleeps almost thru the night and wakes up happy babbling in her crib

Harder - she's getting good at fighting naps and it's getting harder to keep her entertained (DH thinks youtube is the answer)

Easier: I don't have to support her head like it's filled with nitroglycerin.

Harder: She started teething and becomes EXTREMELY fussy through the day. She no longer sleeps through the night. She refuses to nap during the day (because of her teeth). I'm back at work now so I can't soothe her during the day.

easier: he is easy to entertain because i know the crys for what he wants.
also he sits up by himself, so he has more fun with his toys because he can touch them instead of just looking at them.

harder: he doesn't sleep through the night anymore, and he's constantly soaked with drool. (i think he's teething?)

Easier: he will play by himself for a few instead of me needing to hold him all the time.
harder: I thought he would be getting easier to ut to sleep at night but hes not.
