Just a few quick notes:
Zélie reached the 6 week mark on Friday, and it is honestly difficult to believe it has been 6 weeks already. On the other hand, it feels like she has been a part of the family forever. The kids love her. She and Atticus are especially good buddies; I think this can in part be owed to them nursing together--as my friend said, "they are breast friends". Tandem nursing continues to go well (Sylvia, I promise to write about it more in depth soon!) Zélie has a pretty sweet easy-going personality, but like Lily and Atticus, she is plagued by reflux. Medication has helped a lot, but since she is growing so fast, it is easy for her to outgrow her dose which turns her into a miserable baby.
You may have noticed the dearth of photos with me and Zélie together. Most of the photos I have of the two of us together are from the hour after her birth (thanks to my amazing doula Melissa who doubled as the post-birth photographer!) or they are of me tandem nursing on the day Zélie and Atticus first met. Due to the lack of clothing, I am keeping these photos, as beautiful and cherished as they are, off of the blog.
