big brother Sam is doing well with the adjustment. he's very much a loner child, so he's not missing playing with friends ... sadly he doesn't really have any anyway. he is much more social with adults - our friends and complete strangers alike - and he's always telling people "we have a new baby, his name is Eli (sounds like E-why)." he's so proud. I can tell he can't wait until Eli can actually play with him.
I finally got a smile last week. that's pretty exciting to me; it's a milestone. I haven't been able to capture a picture of it though, hopefully soon. any smiling baby is the cutest thing in the world, it's those gums! and of course I now am talking to him in that high-pitched voice so I can see more of those precious smiles. "they" say babies are attracted to that high-pitch noise, but it seems people talk that way automatically anyway, not because of what research says. what do you think? isn't it funny?
I love my kids ... it's still strange to me that I now have 2. I never really dreamed or fantasized about being a mommy, it was just one of those things that I knew would happen one day - but that's where I stopped thinking about it. like my marriage and wedding; I knew I'd get married one day but never had a fairytale wedding planned out beforehand. is that strange? I wouldn't call myself a girly girl, as a child or now. I guess I had better things to do like play school with my stuffed animals!
