What we know so far…

-Child #2 is INFINITELY easier than child #1 – mostly because you know what to look out for, and what to NOT freak out about.

-I don’t want to jinx a thing, but this adorable bundle slept from 1am to 8am.  DUDE.

-His cries mean one of 4 things: wet diper, need food NOW, I’m tired and have NO idea what to do about it, or random thing #4 we haven’t figured out yet.  But that’s rare, at least in this first 24 hours.

-Malka is smitten with her little baby brother, and we only hope that we can continue to give HER as much attention as we can in this transition time.

-His birth mother did not come to placement.  This makes us sad.  We only hope that, in time, we will be able to be a part of her world.  Malka’s birth mother has spoiled us…

-I forgot how delicious baby snuggles are.  Seriously.

-He sleeps in his car seat.  On his side.  Weird, but hey!  It works!

-Um, he has a penis.

-He takes little 45 minute cat naps, just like Malka did, and will do sometimes now.

-More to come, and we’ll share his name on February 11th, and will post more pictures to flickr after February 27th.

But for now?  See what I mean about baby snuggles? photo-50Better than Lexapro!
