I think I need to figure out how to do a slide show or at the very least, smaller pictures! You'll have to deal with the onslaught until I do. Reagan is so beautiful and sweet. Billy is beginning to adapt to not being the sole center of attention. We've been very blessed to have grandmothers staying with us during the week so that I can focus on the baby and on healing from my cesarean. I'd heard the recovery got more difficult with subsequent babies. I don't think so. I feel like it was the same, if not a little easier. But I also learned from the first time around to take advantage of the help that was offered and let my body heal. The hardest part is not picking up my son. He'll come up to me and hold my legs, crying to be picked up, so I kneel down to give him a hug, but then he'll just cry harder and try to make me stand up and hold him. He likes to touch Reagan's hands and feet, pull her booties off, and poke her eyes out. He also likes to put her pacifier in her mouth, especially when I am trying to nurse her! We're hoping that she continues to use a pacifier, but as you'll see from the pictures, she has already found her thumb. . . on multiple occasions. Billy didn't really start sucking his thumb until 3 months, so we'll see how this one turns out! Reagan LOVES taking a bath. She is so calm and happy. Totally different from Billy; he literally screamed for the first few weeks.
