At Aubrey's 3-week appointment, we learned that she hadn't gained weight in 2 weeks. Nursing has been very different this time than it was with Tyler. We were asked to supplement with formula as I try to increase my "supply." This week, she is up to 8 pounds! (Finally above her birth weight - it only took a month, poor baby)!

Tyler has been able to help with a few feedings, which he quite enjoys.

Tyler enjoys seeking Aubrey out to see her and talk to her, whether she is happy or screaming, it doesn't seem to matter to him. He helps us fetch things we need, reassures her, tells her "that's how it is in the world" and is generally very sweet. We're still working on him leaving us alone when it's time for her nap, though, as he doesn't seem to understand that he is keeping her awake. Or, perhaps he understands and doesn't care - as I figure he's stalking her because he's bored. Oh well, it could be much harder. How do you Mom's with children spaced closely together do it? I don't know.
