I’m afraid to think this, let alone type it, but Cora is an absolute angel.
I know. I’ve just doomed us, but it had to be said.
Emma was a mild baby. She had trouble getting to sleep but, other than that, she was what the Baby Whisperer called a Textbook Baby. Very predictable, very easy to calm and soothe. Totally by the book. She was a blessing of a first child.
Henry on the other hand… He was the opposite in every way. I think he screamed and cried for seven months before he settled down. (He still screams, by the way.)
After being home just a week Cora, on the other hand, appears to be a most mild mannered baby, always agreeable and rarely cross. She makes a few cries when she wakes up but they’re more along the lines of, “Hey, guys! I’m awake!” than “Brwaaaaaaahhhh! Feeeeeeed meeeeee! Feeeeeeeed meeeeee!’
It’s such a relief after Henry. Let’s hope it isn’t short lived.
Most of the first week Cora has spent sleeping. As I joked about Henry, Cora wasn’t “done” yet,and still needed some time to cook. Now that a week has passed, she’s starting to perk up a bit and stay awake a little after eating.
I, of course, have taken this opportunity to thrust my camera in her face.
