Elsa’s Baby Blessing

06 Feb 2013 04:36 pm | Category: Elsa, Ethan

We gave Elsa her baby blessing at church on the first Sunday of the year in 2013. Oh boy, did she cry. I had a feeling she would. I think Eric got a little anxious with her crying because he blessed her to be an example to those around her twice. Haha. Right as she started crying, he blessed her to have calm and patience. Well, I guess it didn’t work during the blessing, but I have to say, she is generally a very calm baby. She just eats and sleeps mostly. Of course she’s still only two months old, and that’s what two months old do, but even when she’s awake, she’s really calm. When she was only a few weeks old, she only had to get up once a night to feed. Since babies are mostly nocturnal when they’re still that young, she’ll be wide awake after feeding and it’ll take about an hour and a half to get her back to sleep. But she’s just lying there, eyes wide open, just staring. I think she’s probably trying to finish pooping. We would sometimes change up to five diapers in an hour because she would poop and cry and want it changed right away. After she’s changed, she’ll stop crying right away. She likes her diaper cleaned, that one. Definitely a girly girl. Easily satisfied, but it can drive you nuts! Then she started sleeping through the night at 7 weeks. Such a blessing. No more middle of the night feedings and diaper change! Yipee! She also doesn’t mind when her brother bothers her. It’s really cute when EJ tries to play with her. Quite unnerving too. I have to always remind him to be gentle. One time, I found him in her crib. He used a stool and climbed into her crib so he could turn the mobile for her. So sweet! But I was so worried he would step on her. Elsa is so blessed to have such a loving older brother. My heart just about melts when I see how anxious EJ gets about Elsa!
