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*

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!
