The past 2 weeks have been full of change and sweetness here in our home. Phoebe Marie was born on July 5th and is just a blessing to have around. She is a very good baby, cries very little, sleeps a lot (though not always at night) and seems to be pretty laid back. Her big sister, is having some trouble adjusting and we have seen a lot of resistance to discipline and don't have the energy that we want/need to deal with it all the time. I have seen such a difference in this delivery. I am sane. I mean I can think straight, I can function, I can walk. I am glad that we went ahead with a scheduled c-section and actually felt really good later that day. I think the strangest thing was being so aware of everything they were doing with the c-section (last time it all happened pretty fast). The only real downer was that I had to wear these compression boots for almost 24 hours after the procedure and the epidural they kept in over night too. It was nice to just rest and feed the baby though. Here are a bunch of pictures of the last 2 weeks. I think she and her sister looks similar, but there are differences like less chubby cheeks and face shape (Phoebe has her dad's I think). The only real hiccup at this point is that my little one has a tiny mouth and although is latching just fine, it doing quite a bit of damage to her mama. We are consulting experts and getting all the help we need. It is just a matter of what I can handle and time. Just taking this one day at a time. We are tired, thankful and need prayers of patience as we juggle our littlesweet Phoebe and our spirited big girl, Chloe.
