Changes in Appearance:

She is filling out more. Her cheeks are growing! Her hair is growing. She has this little tuft on top that has one long hair. It’s like Alfalfa!


Tongue clicking noises,

Running water,

Watching the dogs play fetch or fighting,

Laughing at herself in the mirror, Fart noises on her feet and tummy, Waking up in the morning to a smiling face, 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, Bicycle legs, Whistling noises (Sam has to do those…I can’t whistle)


No new dislikes this week!

She is slowly starting to get antsy when we do slow airplane with her, 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

New Milestones/Developments

I’ve been working with Daphs on rolling over and sitting up. She smiles at strangers in stores.

Worries with Milestones/Developments:

No real worries right now.

Sleeping Habits:

Bedtime around 8pm, sleeps in her crib, wakes up around midnight and again around 4am, then around 8am for the day. I usually try to wake up before her so I can get a few minutes of alone time in.

She naps around 11am for half an hour and then again for about an hour in the afternoon.

Eating Habits:

Still breastfeeding. I’ve added in the use of the SNS with a few extra ounces of formula to help add some calories. She is gaining weight slowly. Still eating every two hours or so.

Thoughts about the past week:

Daphs had a pretty good week! She really enjoys watching the dogs play together and watching Pax play fetch.

She doesn’t like to be in the bouncer much or on her own. I’ve enjoyed being able to hold her so much, honestly. I love being able to teach her about all the things I do around the house. We walk down to the mailbox and I show her the trees and the buds opening up. She just stares at it, but I know that she is absorbing it all.

What else…

She still hasn’t laughed like she did a week ago. We’ve been trying, believe me! She usually smiles for Sam most of the time!

Another weight check in a week!
