no swaddling here

i know that every baby is different, but i can't help myself from comparing the ways that hendrix and blaire are so totally different.  

one of the biggest ways is in the swaddling, or lack thereof.  hendrix adored being swaddled, and that was the only way that he slept for the first four months of his life until we had to wean him off of swaddling (which was a difficult endeavor).

blaire wants nothing to do with it.  
she does like to have a blanket on her, but she doesn't want those arms pinned down at all.  
she wants to put them up over her head.  

this is basically the position that i sleep in every night, so it seems fitting that this mama's girl should follow in my footsteps.  lol

another big difference between them so far is in the paci department.  hendrix was attached to his from day one in the hospital, and we just finally got rid of it after his second birthday last month. 

blaire hasn't had one at all yet.  and she doesn't seem to know or care what she is missing out on!

she is really a very content baby, and spends most of her time sleeping.  she is still getting up about 3 times a night to eat, but i have been able to catch some catnaps during the afternoons when both she and hendrix nap  so i have been able to handle the lack of sleep okay.

this little girl is such a blessing to our family, and we are loving getting to know her a little more each day.  ;)
