Well I started this post when she was 3 weeks… sorry I haven’t been bloggy lately. At her 2 week well-child check-up we found out she’s gained one pound past her birth weight, and grown 1/2 inch! Great progress little one!
This week we both caught daddy’s cold and have been sucking out snot, sneezing and trying to coordinate breathing out of her nose. I’ve also had on my brain a piece of advice a coworker told me: “Don’t start anything you won’t want to continue.” Thanks Erin! I am remembering that as I debate the use of a pacifier, how to get our little bean to sleep, things like that.
Some things we’ve noticed and love about her: the sounds she makes (she’s grunting more all the time), her sideways yawn, remember?! (the only yawn she has), how she is determined to hold her head up (and successfully does for minutes before getting tired and flopping her head back down), her pouty cry (usually makes me smile… probably not what she’s going for), her little feet, her adorable dimples (too bad we only see those when she’s pouting), how she’s most comfortable with her hands up by her face, how and when she looks up at us with her big eyes, how much of a cuddler she is, I could go on and on!
Some things we’ve noticed and don’t love… the 9pm – 12am awake time… that’s all really. I dread night time, I used to love going to sleep! But like it says in a book I got from a friend:
“When the baby keeps you awake all night, remember you will have a lifetime to catch up on your sleep. But you’ll never have this night with your little one again.” Thanks Carol!
We’ve had some visitors (Thanks Meg! Thanks Parents!) but I haven’t been very good at getting pictures. Sorry about that, but here are a few pictures of her lately. (I wanted to put up a couple videos, but haven’t figured out how to use the ones from my phone yet.) Sorry about all the sleeping pictures, but that is the easiest time for me to get pictures! And she’s just so cute when she sleeps. Notice her hands?!
