Having a girl is so much fun! I get to dress up my little doll everyday with the cutest clothes. I feel like things are finally calming down and we are getting into a great routine.

I never knew how different two babies can be. Jessna is definitely a girl of routine. Since I stopped nursing and started bottle feeding (the best choice I should have made long ago!), I have set Jessna up for a very good feed/wake/sleep schedule and she always eats and sleeps at the same time every day. Wow! The only thing is that I wish she would eat at 5:30am instead of 4:30am, but otherwise she goes back to sleep right away and will sleep until 9:30am. However just a few weeks ago she slept from 10pm-8:30am, so maybe she's changing her sleep patterns to fit my sleep schedule. Oh, and the best thing I like about bottle feeding is that I can look into my little girl's eyes and kiss her sweet head!
After I stopped nursing I started pumping and I could make most of Jessna's bottles, but it took a lot of time out of my day and my back and neck hurt. As much as I want to save money (just got HUGE bills from the hospital), I know that I couldn't do the pumping forever and stay sane. So I recently weaned myself from that. That wasn't easy either. However, life is flowing so much better and I'm having so much fun with my kids. I can get out and enjoy life again and my little girl is to fun to play with.
