Because I have seen the way Amelia’s home coming has been particularly hard for Ellie to adjust to, I decided while Rick is still home for the week, I should seize the opportunity to go out for a mother-daughter date with her. So momentarily, we will go to get a cookie at a nearby bakeshop and then go to Lulu’s, a toy store down the street that also does children’s haircuts. Poor Ellie desperately needs a cut with some shape to it so her little face doesn’t get covered so, she will get her first “professional” haircut today! We’ll see how it works out!:)
Since Amelia sleeps well between feedings, I can safely leave her at home with Rick. This will afford Ellie and I a little while at least…I look forward to spending this time with my almost 2 year old!
P.S. Thank you all for the suggestions on my last post. As some of you suggested, I am going to try having books and toys nearby when I am nursing Amelia.
