Weight + Height: 12 lbs and 22 inches long
Clothes: She’s in 3-6 months now! Every month I go up to Anna’s closet and comb through the many bags to find new options. I forgot how adorable footie pajamas are.
Eating: Milk, milk and more milk.
Sleeping: She is a CHAMP. Depending on when she goes down for the night, she will almost regularly make it until 6am. She even surprised us this week with a 13 hour sleep! Wild.
Crying: She will start crying quick is something scares her — a loud noise or sharp laugh of someone near her ear.
Likes: Watching big sis, laying on the music mat, being held upright.
Dislikes: Mmm… I dislike it when she spits up a lot. And when she gets a bad rash. She doesn’t seem to like the pacifier anymore; only when she’s in the crib will she keep it in her mouth.
Memorable Moments: She’s not REALLY close to rolling from back to front but she tries so diligently.
If you put her in a certain direction in the crib she will wiggle her way over to the side until her face is smushed against the wall of the crib. If you face her the other direction, she doesn’t move an inch. So interesting.
She’s cooing excitedly a lot these days and it’s super cute.
I think she might be teething (!!!) because she’s had a low fever for a week and is now drooling a good bit and chewing on her fingers more. We shall see.
Parent Stories: She’s funny in that 70% of the time, for naps, she doesn’t really want to be held anymore. Just put her down, give her the pacifier and she eventually falls asleep. Wowzers the jealousy! It is going to be a full-time job helping Anna understand, give grace, be generous, and share.
Prayers: For continued grace and wisdom to coach Anna on life with little sis; for endurance in pumping and feedings; for joy in taking each day as it comes; for John and I to prioritize each other with fun and conversation.
