Our little lady, Aurelia, recently passed the 6 week mark...
She continues to be both a joy and a terrifying poop monster. You can see by our lack of posts that parenting is both all-consuming these first months and like a wonderful, warm cave you don’t want to stick your head out of.
We have spent more time cheering burps and recording excretion than is normal. I can report that Janos gets pooped and peed on daily - always accompanied by Aurelia looking angelic as he screeches and curses in Italian. It almost makes the lack of sleep worth it. He is valiantly powering through the dark hours of the nights.
I have become very proud of my vocal abilities to soothe the little lady, though I think she is the only one who has ever appreciated my singing. Now an expert at dressing a wriggling anaconda and the seated burp, I feel alternately queen of the world and swirling in a never ending tizzy. Though, I think the next person to comment about my boobelas/breastfeeding (including if you have a Dr. before your name) needs to remember I was born in New Mexico. The Wild West. And Breaking Bad territory. You have been warned.
Aurelia has become the master of expressions in kingdom baby. She now grabs on to fingers, chest planks like a yoga champion, woodpeckers, and like many princesses, loves her baths and to have her hair (well, peach fuzz) brushed. We have even detected the start of laughs. She also does an epic imitation of a velociraptor.
Moral: Everyone knows everything, and nothing, about babies, boobies and parenthood. Our little lady is undeniably hilarious.
