So I went back in there, and she actually nursed a bit (yay!) and went back into her bassinet all drowsy and (ha!) well fed, and I think she's down now.
Another thing I know, I know better is to not compare the Sroch and the Shlam - but it's so automatic. Ditto to place them into roles. As in, "Sarah Rochel is my bad eater - Shulamis is my good one," (well, until today!) because the younger is doing much better on the weight gain front than Sroch did at the same age. And Sarah Rochel did eat well today, having like 6 multi-grain big crackers (the Patit ones - yay for more flavors getting a better hechsure!) and then a big bowl of split pea soup and hot dogs for dinner.
A squawk from Shulama-llama. I go to shh-shh-shh again.
I'm back. Another thing - comparing myself, or ourselves. As in, I never did that with Sarah Rochel, or I always did that with Sarah Rochel, or Yoav used to do that with Sarah Rochel and he doesn't do it with Shulamis, not fair, not fair, living in van down by the river, etc, etc.
And I KNOW better!! I do! I can quote you chapter and verse in "Siblings Without Rivalry," I remember distinctly from my own childhood (hi Micah) that just because two children are from the same parents they do NOT need the same things... But why, why if I am so enlightened do the thoughts even creep into my (currently meager) brain activity??? I need that mental energy for making dinner!!
Okay, okay. End of rant. I think. Thank you for listening.
In other news, I just switched to Google Chrome, their web browser, so you would think blogging would be easier, Blogger being owned by Google and all. Yet so far the Blogger shortcuts aren't working. Hmm. Will see.
