The Sound of Silence?

Is it actually silent in this house? I can’t believe it… Well, the baby’s asleep–finally–after her morning marathon feeding, and my parents have taken the boys out to lunch. Normally, I would take advantage of Lady Penelope’s nap time to take a nap myself, but there’s just too much to be done. I feel like I haven’t been able to accomplish ANYTHING lately. My darling, sweet, beautiful daughter has been feeding like a maniac for the past two weeks. I understand that she’s getting bigger and building up my milk supply, but from about 8:30am to noon and 5pm to midnight, this little creature is like a milk-sucking vampire who won’t let go of the boob. Thankfully, she doesn’t do this at night. She gets up once around 4am, eats, goes back to sleep and is satisfied until 8:30am. Ah, well… I suppose this too will pass. And really, I will ONLY allow it because she’s so cute. 😉

At 5.5 weeks, she has officially outgrown newborn sized clothes, which is nice because we only had a few items that were newborn sized. Her teeny tiny little ankles have put a good amount of fat on them, but they’re still too small for the straps of the baby booties I knit for her. Sadly, now her feet are too long to fit in them. 🙁 It’s always a gamble when making something for a newborn.

Anyway, I better get a move on. The big boys will be home soon, and I’ve still got a million things I want to get done.
