Thanks! Molly is such a doll!

Bianca can't decide if she's in love or hate with Stella, so I play a lot of defense.

It IS hard to believe we all had girls! I so wish I'd be naming more but my baby-making days are over. I do think about what I'd name a sister to Madeline. ;-)

Hey Jenna!
First, that pic of Stella is ADORABLE!

Surprisingly Brennan has not shown jealousy toward Molly, but when we are out and about he gets real shy and clingy and wants me to hold him. This is super out of character!

I would like to have 1 more baby, but it won't happen until we are out of our townhouse because already Brennan and Molly will be sharing a room! Will definitely need naming help for that one!!!

What about you guys?

How is Madeline doing Terra? She is so beautiful! Have you guys decided on a "nn" for her? I love just plain old Madeline, but I am sure people will shorten it and like your idea of instilling the nn of choice!

Thanks Jaime. Madeline is doing great, I hafta keep checking at diaper changes to make sure she's still a girl! I still don't believe it, lol. I love Madeline as well and that's what we call her most of the time. If she has any kind of a nn right now it would be Miss Maud (just dh and I call her that). Maudie doesn't feel quite right to me but I do hope it catches on in the years to come in case others try calling her Maddie. We will definitely try to stick with her full name. Molly and Milly are ones that are still in the back of my mind. ;-)
Isn't it fun dressing little girls?

I apologize for just getting back to you. Life is pretty darn good. Elspeth can get rather fussy in the evenings though. Okay, to be honest, fussy is being nice, she can scream non stop for a good three hours some nights! It has been trying at times, but at least it's not all day long. And it isn't every night, sometimes its only about an hour. I did weight check before and after feeding yesterday, and the little tick was eating 3.5 oz on only one side. That is all she should eat total a feeding, so I have been overfeeding here. I made a plan with the lactation consultant and last night was so amazingly different. She didn't fuss much in the evening, actually feel asleep for a 30 min stretch and then went to bed at 9 and slept 6 hours straight. I hope it wasn't a fluke and less food, only feeding her on one side during the fussies, and an evening nap all made her feel better.

She is still wearing newborn size clothes, but won't be much longer. All of out newborn size stuff is gender neutral, and for the first time yesterday she wore an actual girl outfit. She looked so weird to me, I am missing the gene that likes girly outfits. Everything we have been gifted (which has been an absolutely mind blowing amount) is way too rufflly, frilly, and PINK for my taste. H is so excited though, he loves it all and looks in her drawers and closet all the time and can't wait until she can wear it.

The (non pink) nursery is a work in progress. I am giving myself until the end of may to get it all done. Her bedding is white, yellow, and green. I compromised with H, who wanted pink, to include lavender accents. I am excited to get it all done.

That's me. How are things for you guys? Jenna, is Bee still weary of the baby? Jamie, has Brennan gotten better with the clinginess?

And Jenna I had to say to Stella looks so much like Niko in the newest pic. I think in your sig pic, which is the cutesy by the way, she looks like you and Bee but wow holy Niko now! What do you think?

I love Elsie's pic! She's adorable! Thanks on mine - she def looks like her dad's side. My girls share similar facial features, but the olive skin and dark hair on Stella make her look like she's from another family when its just me and my kids. So funny. But she is the spitting image of my husband, for sure!

Sorry to hear about Elsie's fussy fits. I guess we all get those from time to time. I had never considered over-feeding to be an issue! I have to say though, Stella is an easy baby. She'll fuss for a few minutes before certain naps, but otherwise it's like I have a baby doll. She is SO chill - especially in comparison to Bee who was an Oscar-winning performer form the moment she was born.

I still like thinking about baby names though! How about you? I keep suggesting things to my pregnant friends who are probably getting sick of me.
