    I actually was doing the breastmilk thing. The antibiotic stuff has really cleared it up now. A lady at church yesterday said her daughter had issues with a blocked tear duct off an on until she was 5 months old. I hope his doesn't go on that long

    I am glad to hear that your daughter slept in her own room all night. What a relief! Hopefully that will continue for her. If she sleeps better then the days will go better, too, right?
    it's been hit or miss with sleeping in her own room, but I'm sure she'll eventually get consistent about it

    Do you have a "favorite part" of your baby that you just can't resist? My first son had fuzzy shoulders and I just couldn't stop rubbing them and kissing them. My second son LOVED having me gently rub his feet. It was so cute. When I touched his feet he would get really quiet and just stretch his legs way out and stretch out his toes. Funny how I don't really remember about my daughters, but maybe it will come to me if I think about it awhile.
    I do love how soft the skin on his little cheeks is.

    Your husband's comment about the bigger car made me laugh. We had our first three in carseats in the backseat for quite a while (luckily they fit), and got a minivan for #4. We still will all fit in it since we got an 8-passenger, but my husband must be in a dreamworld because now he's looking at 12 passenger vans! His excuse is that he could "use it for the Scouts". Yep. That's about right, honey.
    LOL. I don't think 3 carseats would fit in our car. DD's convertible carseat is pretty big. Maybe, though.

    Unfortunately we're renting, so I don't think those kind of locks would be an option. We put one of those plastic childproof doorknob things on the door and she hasn't gotten it open yet.

    Hey I'm just getting caught up on here. It's always interesting to read about how mommies with a brand new baby #2 are doing, since I hope to have a #2 here soon. Sounds like things are going great! Any chance we can get more baby pictures (or perhaps you have a blog you wouldn't mind me blurking?)
