I think I’ve taken more pictures of her than people take of Suri Cruise, but I love it, and I love all the random pictures I have of her. It’s also SO true that every stage is the “favorite” stage. Having a baby… the best decision we ever made <;3
Here’s what happened this month:
– Spit bubbles and drool… I call her “Bubbles” all the time!
– She started to coo a little bit and talks a ton while she’s sleeping
– I’m pretty sure she would love it if we held her 24/7
– She holds her arm out and brings her hand to her mouth and if she misses she sticks it back out and starts over. Sometimes she sucks on her knuckles or wrist, and if you’re holding her she’ll suck on your arm and shoulder…
– She slept through the night right at 6 weeks. Most nights she’s asleep by 10:30 or 11 and wakes up around 6, but if she does get up at night it’s around 4:30.
– She’s get’s hot easily (seriously, she gets sweaty just when you hold her) and has never liked being swaddled, but her arms kept waking her up, so I ended up using the swaddleme and only wrapped her arms so she stays cool and doesn’t wake herself up.
– She started losing her newborn hair and now she’s got a bunch of blonde, peach-fuzzy goodness (except for the back of her head where she’s still got the newborn hair. She REALLY looks like a balding old man now!)
– She’s eating about every 2.5-3 hours or so
– She’s still not a fan of the car seat and I usually end up carrying her through the store.
– We started her in cloth diapers
– She is constantly kicking her legs and moving her arms
– The 2 or 3 newborn outfits she has still fit, but she’s wearing mostly 0-3 month clothes and we’ve tried 1 or 2 of the smaller 3-6 month outfits (they’re big, but wearable).
– She’s starting to copycat facial expressions
– First 4th of July
– First trip to Destin (our new favorite place) and she also had her first hotel stay and pool experience (we just got her feet a little wet, but it was a good excuse to put her bathing suit on again)
