Merry Almost Christmas

Felix loves his little sister. He doesn't say her name yet, but he does like pointing to her and touching her and saying "baby". He also likes giving her kisses. Super cute. Dr. Freestone says it's normal for kids Felix's age to not really get jealous. Said that might show up when she starts crawling and getting attention there. For now, Felix just sees that someone is giving out attention and he wants in on it too. So if someone is holding Amelia he wants to get held too. But he doesn't begrudge her the attention she gets.
She's keeping me up at night. She sleeps and eats much better during the day and I've wondered if it's not because she's used to the noise of the hospital nursery (it being similar to the regular daytime noise around home).

Besides the normal exhaustion of having a new baby at home, life is pretty darn good. I did have a few minutes of extreme frustration while speaking to Medicaid people yesterday, but I've grown to expect that. Sigh. (Felix found the sugar at Wal-Mart)
