Struggle-bus party of 5!
This has been a hard two weeks.
Crying peaked, fussiness peaked, not sleeping anywhere peaked.
When Claire was 5 weeks she was cooing, smiling and socially interacting.
When Sophie was about 8 weeks I remember talking about how things were not so much fun... Even though I had just blogged how she was such an easy baby at 5 weeks (and she was seriously easy). Still.. at the end of the day "babies be babies" right?
When Claire was almost 2 months I wanted to remember the good so I posted because she mainly screamed non stop. At exactly 2 months I posted how it was really hard.
So sweet Isaac you smile but it's far and few between. You are, I'm thinking, a "grumpy" baby by the Baby Whisperer standards.
You startle easily, are sensitive to noise, you don't like being touched too much and you're not overly expressive.
I think you will like tender touches, kind words etc. It's crazy but already you like words of affirmation. I know it sounds crazy but mark my words. You're not so big on touch or time but kind, gentle words work wonders.
She always imitates her sister and her love language is physical touch. She's a cuddler.
Claire is almost 4! She is a big big girl. She acts just like a mom in some ways and dad in others. She is hyper, silly, expressive and intuitive. But she is also responsible, shy, a perfectionist and has a strong sense of "ought". She is practicing some major attitude but mostly is obedient, kind and helpful. Her emotions get away from her. Her love language is entirely quality time (like mommy).
