Piper has a great big sister. Though Cadence is clearly getting less of our attention - her most frequent phrase now is probably some variation on "will you play with me?" - she is definitely not blaming Piper and is very happy to help with bathing or diaper changes or play time.
Piper is three weeks old now. She likes to try to hold her head up. She likes to watch Cadence. She's still wearing newborn clothes and we only moved up to size 1 diapers because we have a gazillion of them and we ran out of the newborn ones. She seems to have two particularly fussy times - somewhere around 5-6 pm and 2-4 am. Not particularly convenient. We introduced a pacifier at 2 weeks and she's a fan. She took her first bottle on Sunday like a champ (we wanted to introduce it before she got to old to get used to one), but I am so relieved to be able to pump just when I want to, not out of necessity like with Cadie when I was working full-time.
I'm on my own with the girls today after 3+ weeks of grandmother help, and so far we are doing fine. I didn't get to take a nap, but I did get laundry folded and put away.
