Baby Emily meets her DeeRee
Hello Pop Pop!

Dee Ree's girls
During the past week of adjustments for all of us we have been keeping visits to a minimum (thanks for understanding everyone!!!) but of course Baby Emily did have some family visitors already. We really needed that week to get acclimated to being a family of four and trying to meet everyone's schedules and needs as best we can. Dee Ree has been a humongous help (thank you Dee Ree!) and we are grateful for all who have been so wonderful to us during this adjustment period.
Sophie's sleeping and waking schedule has taken a bit of a hit through all this change. She is waking up a little more in the night (most likely due to the heat but also I'm sure because of some of the big changes to her world of late) and instead of waking up at 7am, she's been waking up an hour earlier. She also had trouble napping this week (again, could very likely be due to the hot weather in Philly we've been having) so getting her down and keeping her down for naps has also been a bit of a challenge. In fact, this morning Sophie got up at 5am. We tried to keep her in her bed and get her back to sleep till at least 6am but it just wasn't happening.
Emily seems to be falling into a schedule of her own. As far as we can tell at this early stage, she seems to have one sleepy day where you can hardly wake her up and then it's followed by a slightly more fussy day where she can't seem to settle easily and seems overtired. At night she is doing really well so far lasting 2-3 hours between feeds which is pretty great. But then again it's early yet so who knows what will happen with any sort of feeding and sleeping schedule yet. She seems to overall be a pretty darn happy baby though. If she's fed and not too overtired she is happy as a clam. We had our first family outing as a family of four on Saturday when we walked up to our local farmers market. It was very exciting!
