I put my belly photos up side-by-side to compare on Facebook, but I guess I never did here on the blog.
I think I carried a little larger and a little lower with this pregnancy, until this mysterious photo.
James weighed three whole pounds more than Amelie did at this appointment -- he was almost two weeks older, since we postponed it a little due to Thanksgiving, but that's still a big difference when you're 10.5 or 13.5 pounds!
Amelie would basically only sleep swaddled. James will drift off without it, but we have better luck at night and for his long nap if he wears one. We've gotten lazy and are just using the fancy ones with velcro and extra flaps and things. With Amelie a lot of the time (especially at first), we'd just use a regular blanket.
I think both kids enjoyed their first baths a lot more than these pictures would lead you to believe. I gave Amelie her first bath and Sam gave James his.
