One Month

Many people say that Ansley looks just like Laney, and I would agree even though there are a few slight differences, so I wanted to do a little comparison of the two. So here they are...first pic of Ansley at 2 weeks and the second of Laney at a month old. 



Laney at a week old!
My MIL said, as she was talking to Ansley, "Why did you wait to come 2 and a half years after your twin?" I think that is a fair question to ask and I have the answer...I would go CRAZY if I ever had twins! :)
A few things about Ansley at a month old:

*Ansley smiled her first real smile today at both me and Bria. It was adorable!
*She sings and makes noises as she nurses, just like Laney did.
*She tries to hold her head up a lot.
*She is 10 pounds and has grown about an3/4 of an inch in the past few weeks.
*Is now wearing 3 month clothes.
*Eats like clock work every couple of hours, but there is a glimmer of hope for more time between as she sometimes goes about 3 hours. Hopefully it will soon be the new feeding schedule. *fingers are crossed*

We sure do love our little Ansley-belle! She makes us all smile.
So far we are surviving. The house isn't as clean as we would like, the dog is feeling a bit neglected, the guinea pig cage goes a bit longer in between changes, the laundry is continuing to stock pile with no real possibility of ever getting completely done and sometimes I feel like I am going to go insane due to the fact that I just can't do it all, but despite it all we are a happy family. Family is really what life is all about and I am grateful that I have been blessed to be a mother. I just have to keep telling myself this over and over again when a kid spills milk all over the floor as my nursing babe is fussing for meal time and the other kids are fighting over the computer. :) This is just a season of my life. One day when the house is quiet I will miss these moments of being a complete family under one roof. I LOVE family!

Holy cow! Ansley looks more like Laney than Laney does in those pics of the babies sleeping. So adorable. I appreciate your positive attitude and how you keep things in perspective. I need to do more of that myself. :)

Omgosh Sharon! This was absolutely beautiful and perfect. THAT is what life and family is about. We have been trying to concieve just over 6 months now without success..so to read your story tells me that yes there is a reason I tell myself to just let it go, its not going to happen, yet I find myself keeping on... so thank you for your story..<3

P.S. And oh my god! Ive never seen those pictures and holy moly those babies look an awful lot alike. How wonderful to be fortunate enough to experience it twice!!

That is so cool! My twin and I were born 8 years apart! I guess that's what happens in large families... the genes are more likely to repeat themselves!! ;) I am certain that Ansley will show her uniqueness before long though!

They do look like twins! Remember that Laney was fussy too at first and then became really easy. Maybe Ansley will do the same!
