Life with Lola

I've learned a lot the past three weeks and surprisingly forgot a ton in the three years since Maximo was a newborn, although that was a totally different experience.

Things I've learned:
  • Girls can projectile pee just as good as boys
  • Cleaning a girl is a lot more work than cleaning a boy
  • It's not as easy to "sleep when the baby sleeps" when you have a toddler (although John has been super helpful with getting Max out of the house)
  • House help is really nice when you have a newborn - the cooking, the cleaning, the laundry! *Not that we have this now*

Things I forgot:
  • The amount of bodily fluids that come out of a newborn is astounding
  • Newborns multiply laundry by 300% (connected to above point)
  • How little newborns are (and Lola was double the size of Maximo at birth)
  • How newborns really do NOTHING at this point
I have no new pictures of Lola. It's already happening to this child #2, the neglect - the lack of photos... I'll try to take some this weekend. We need to take some for her US passport picture, which should be fun.

Here's a cute one of Maximo that John took on Christmas Day when it was snowing. He's been doing pretty okay as a big brother - a couple of (pee) accidents and he's been a bit of a nightmare to put to bed. Today he got quite jealous when John went to the store with Lola in the Baby Bjorn.

I love the outfit - Christmas jammies, winter jacket and fireman rain boots!
