adjusting to 2

People have been asking me how the adjustment to 2 has been. For me, the shift from one to two has been easier than from none to one...SO FAR...I know I may end up eating my words as Audrey nears the end of the newborn stage and becomes more awake and aware. Audrey has been a very good baby for the most part. She sleeps well during the night and allows me and Annika to drag her all over on our morning outings. Annika loves to go bye bye...doesn't really matter where as long as we get out of the house in the mornings. If we don't, all three of us may end up in tears by lunchtime:) Luckily Audrey hasn't objected to these excursions to the grocery store, library, park, costco, the coffee shop...you name it. 

 Annika has been such a good big sister. She is so sweet with Audrey. Giving her lots of kisses and pats and making sure she has her binkie when she cries. She likes to change, dress and feed her baby just like mommy does with Audrey. Eric and I are still shocked at how well she has handled the adjustment.
Though it is not always easy, I am loving life with these two little girls. We are very blessed.

p.s. If I had written this post last night it would have been far less positive as I'm pretty sure one of the girls was in tears at all times yesterday until about 9 pm last night...oh the joys...
