Newborns and their sixth sense

K is over two weeks now and we are settling into a good rhythm.  B is home from work for the rest of the month and we have been relishing our time together as a family.  It will be so hard to adjust once he goes back to work!

K has figured out nighttime is for sleeping (sort of) and we've figured out how to get a few hours of sleep in a row at night, a huge blessing!  She's also figure out how to interrupt every attempt at taking care of me!  It's been said before, but newborns have the greatest sixth sense.

Mom wants to eat? Start crying to be fed.
Mom wants to shower?  Start crying to be fed.
Mom needs to bring big sister to daycare?  Start crying to be fed.
Mom just fed me and thinks she can have a moment to herself? 
     Start crying to be fed, again!

It really is uncanny, how sharply tuned this sense is!

She really is an awesome baby, so I can't complain!  She seems to enjoy tummy time, only cries to eat, loves to snuggle, and is overall so good natured. Miss T is being awesome as her big sister too, always wanting to "help".  We are so impressed with how well T has adjusted, so beyond our expectations!  T has recently learned a few new songs too, including "You Are My Sunshine" and this one that I was able to catch on video...

Yep, that is the "Clean Up" song, love it!  And that is a 24-piece jigsaw puzzle that she is currently mastering and cleaning up in this video.  The girl is a genius!
