Changes in Appearance:
I am within such close range of her daily that it is hard to notice a lot of small changes! However, when Sam watches her for me while I workout of finish housework, I notice the changes.
Her face is growing rounder and getting longer.
She still has her monkey toes and chubby little thighs! She just seems to be filling out better!
Still has those baby blues. Not much hair growth. No teeth.
Being faced outwards
Looking at herself in the mirror.
Sam’s voice and weird noises.
Being whispered to
She still likes being swaddled a night.
Loves her paci.
Fart noises, the “ZZZ” sound as in Zipper or in me singing “Zippity Do Dah”
Looking out the front door at the rain and at cars passing by
Being around people and being held close
Sitting with me at the piano and listening to me sing and play
Chewing on her hands
Being bounced on the stability ball
Bathtime and warm water.
Watching Pax and Ash play.
Whistling noises (Sam has to do those…I can’t whistle)
She doesn’t like being stationary too long.
Being set down when she doesn’t want to be (she prefers to be in our arms or in our laps)
Laying on her back when she doesn’t want to be, even for diaper changes
Being parted from her pacifier
Air being blown in her face
Tummy time for more than a few minutes
She is grasping toys better, grabbing with her forefinger and thumb.
She smiles socially to strangers who talk to her.
She rolled over a few times this week–nothing official, but just kinda plopped over.
Worries with Milestones/Developments:
None right now. I think I am at ease with her small frame and her own growth curve (Even in the 7th percentile!) She is healthy and happy!
Bedtime at 8/8:30
Feeding at 12am
Feeding at 5am
Wake up for the day at 7:30am.
Sleeping in her crib! We have to swaddle her tight lest she wriggles free and the blankets are splayed out all over the crib. Sometimes we use a vibrating pack and play attachment to get a little movement in the crib, but mostly she falls asleep on her own.
Still breastfeeding. No introduction of any other foods or cereals. Since removing the paci, she eats a little more often. She has started to spit up just a few times during the day. Perhaps due to getting too full of a belly? It seems to correlate with longer feedings.
Thoughts about the past week:
What a week. We had our two friends and their two dogs move in with us. Now that we are all settled, we are getting into a routine. I am so thankful Sam has been willing to watch Daphs while I workout and clean house a bit.
I am so relieved that my breastfeeding issues seem to have gotten better. I am much more relaxed and confident in my feedings.
Daphne is just such a joy. I am so happy to have her in my life! Sam and I both marvel at her beauty and her smiles. She is quick to smile and just adores being held. I think, however, I need to make sure she is comfortable playing on her own as to not encourage separation anxiety.
I often think about the future and her birthdays. I am so excited to celebrate her life! Family pictures will always be fun.
Daphne’s next doctor appointment is for her 4 month checkup in one week.
