Weight- Unofficially around 10lbs. 2oz. David weighed her yesterday on our bathroom scale and she weighed 10lbs 6oz. with her clothes and swaddle on so we took off a few oz.
Health- Healthy as can be. Just waiting on your umbilical stump to fall off.
Physical- Lots of auburn hair! I have been finding strands of it here and there and really hope that it isn't going to all fall out. Your eyes are a blue-grey right now and we think they have gotten a bit lighter. At first you favored me more but now you definitely favor your dad. People say you also look a little like my dad, Pop. Your eyelashes have gotten much longer in the past three weeks. When you were first born I could barely see them but now they are so long!
Sleep- We are back to some 4hr stretches at night!! So so happy about this! You usually will nap around 1-1.5 hours between daytime feeds. Sometimes, you fight nap time and will only take a 45 min nap or doze off and on for an hour. We are really working towards getting you to take consistent naps for at least 1.5 hours.
One night you were so fussy and would only sleep on my chest...Daddy snuck and took a photo of us snoozing away!
Social-We had lots of friends bring meals during this week and we are so thankful! I am looking forward to being able to take you out during the day for lunch or to just run errands. We did go to the pool with some friends this week (you obviously sat in the shade the whole time) and it was nice to get out of the house for a while.
Feeding-100% breast milk and we are waiting until you are a month old to give you your first bottle. Only one more week before daddy can feed you and he is so excited! We are working towards you eating every 3hours during the day but you often want to eat after only 2.5 hours! You sure do love to eat! You typically nurse for about 15-20 minutes total. I am pumping after your last feed of the day so that we can store up a supply for daddy to feed you with.
Clothes- We have been breaking out the cute dresses and bubbles this week and moving away from always having you in a gown. Although gowns are much easier to navigate during diaper changes, smocked dresses and cute bubbles are just too cute on you! You were already too big for one of the outfits we tried!
Baby Gear Loves- We would be lost with out your MAM pacifier and Swaddle Me swaddles. You like tummy time on your mat too. We are so proud of how good you are at holding your head up already!
Post Partum- I haven't lost any more weight but I am loving that all the water weight in my legs is gone and I can see my muscle definition again! I am looking forward to getting back in the gym soon! But until then, i am enjoying our walking in the neighborhood!
Crying- You are pretty fussy everyday in the late afternoon and evening. You often won't eat much or take a nap.
Likes- You love to be held and would prefer taking all your naps in someone's arms if we let you. Burping, car rides, stroller rides, staring at faces, eating, being swaddled
Milestones- We have officially brought out the Size 1 diapers because you have had some serious leaks this week. Thankfully your clothes didn't stain!
