Zoe Trope

We've got girlfriend home, and everyone agrees Zoe is a much different experience than Molly's somber appearance. Zoe's big, voracious, and hardy. Her biggest demand of us is food; she seems to want to eat every hour. Mother is breastfeeding, which places a significant demand of her, but for health and financial reasons, it's worth it. Have you priced formula lately?

The most interesting aspect of a second child is the reaction that Molly is having to the inevitable shift in attention. She's being very sweet and loving to Zoe, but it's easy to see her ramping up her antics to gain attention, especially in front of visitors and family.

Zoe's size was a big shock to us and the OB doctor. The doctor commented that Zoe would be "ordering hamburgers next week" and that her forceps were barely large enough to clamp the umbilical cord, which looked as thick as three of my fingers when I cut it. Supposedly, Zoe came three weeks early, but I suspect she was a term baby.
