So, my baby is the size of an English cucumber and weighs about a pound and a half, but I think this picture is much cuter than a cucumber. The lovely weekly email said that her hearing is improving vastly and she's responding more to sound which I definitely believe because every time Nate talks to her, she kicks hard. So cute! The girls have yet to feel a good, hard kick that they recognize, but we'll keep trying.
I'm getting a little worried about London. She's become very attached to me and often talks in a babyish voice, constantly saying "I love you mommy." I'm not complaining about that -- especially when people in the store just sigh over her cuteness of loving me -- but I'm a little worried that she's going to have a really hard time when the baby comes. I can already spot signs of "middle-age syndrome" in her and am worried about it.
Does anybody have any ideas for me on this? My only step toward prevention has been to be sure and point out her talents and how beautiful she also looks (I think she feels inferior to Savy) - and I told Nate that it's really important for her to hear it from daddy, so he's doing the same. Any other ideas?
