Ezra is being the sweetest little baby, still. I think he is the perfect little newborn, even more so than I had previously thought Cambria was. He is content all the time and if he does get a little tired or hungry he is easily soothed. I can just put my face right up to his when he's crying during a diaper change and he almost always stops--what a sweet boy! I love to watch him sleep and watch all the little faces he makes. He "smiles" a lot when he sleeps and yesterday he kept making this giggling noise-it was adorable. Kyle and I were discussing whether we think the rest of the world is dramatic when it comes to having a new baby or if we have just truly been blessed with two not so horrible newborns. I think we just got lucky. We also discussed whether the birth environment our children have been born into has had any role in shaping their temperaments--folks at the birthing center would probably argue "YES!!" Either way, I hope Ezra keeps his disposition and continues to allow me to get sleep at night. Have I mentioned that I looooove him?

Kyle went back to work yesterday so it's only been two days, but I think the three of us are already finding a schedule. Between diaper changes and feedings there have been a few stressful situations where both my children have needed me at the same time. I try to keep my cool and deal with the most important issue first. My main goal throughout the day is trying to have one-on-one time with both children. Cambria deserves my undivided attention and so does Ezra, easier said than done but I've made it work the last few days.
