Natalie and Naomi

growing as sisters

For the most part, Natalie seems to have fallen in love with her baby sister. She comes into the bedroom, where Naomi and I are recovering and bonding, and crawls onto the bed to touch Naomi's head or give her a tentative kiss. And then she proceeds to jump on the bed and lose all awareness of where her feet are in relation to her sister's head (no incidents yet, fortunately).

At other times, Natalie exhibits the impatience of a little girl no longer able to have unlimited access to Mommy. She often wants to nurse right as Naomi cries to nurse (yes, I'm still nursing Natalie, and it's going very well for both of us). Natalie also is displaying a knack for crying for me just as I'm taking a nap.

So far, it's not been overwhelming to balance the two girls' needs, thanks to Bret, who's home for the next couple of weeks, and my mom, who's staying with us for the next couple of days. In the meantime, here are some photos of the sisters bonding...
