Ella's up to 11 lbs, almost 12! She's smiling (especially at Josh, for extra mom-melting cuteness), gurgling, and doing crazy amounts of arm and leg waving. All normal baby things. She still cries to be put down sometimes, but I'm getting (a little) better at reading when that needs to happen. She sometimes fusses and fusses, and won't poop until I hold her over a bucket (though sometimes she does stealth-splosions). All in all, she's a baby, doing things that are marvelous to her mother but probably a little dull to other people :)

Josh and I are happiest if we have something planned for every day, and Ella's happiest if we don't drive at all. Sometimes she waits for me, sometimes Josh does. We try to strike some kind of balance, with the underlying principle that people need different degrees of immediate attention at different stages in their lives. Often that means that -I- get to wait, but not always.

(you know you're a second-time mom when you're updating LJ and drinking coffee standing in a messy kitchen while nursing your baby in a sling, with the older child upstairs doing who-knows-what. What can third-time moms do?!)
