Long Days and Sleepless Nights

Thats what life has been like around here lately.  Sarah is very unsettled and is the complete opposite to what Chloe was like as a baby.  Chloe was a dream baby sleeping through the night from 6 weeks on.  Sarah on the otherhand is waking every 2-3 hours wanting feeds or settling and days are spent carrying her around as she cries (stopping only when she has is so exhauseted she has to sleep for a power nap). 

Sarah does put on a good show though -when we are in public and sleeps leaving people wondering if I am telling the truth about her crying.  Just walk past our house and you will hear her ;p  But I feel so blessed to have her in our family and I treasure this time and the privlidge I have to nurse her and care for her as I'm sure I will blink and time will have passed and she will have grown up.

Yup I agree - they so like to be dream babies in public. So much going on I suppose. Flynn has got way better during the day but at night he is still awake alot. Like you said, they do grow up way too fast though.
