Cora at one month old:
~Eating 3 ounces every 2 or so hours during the day
~Taking cat naps. she has officially woken up and her personality is starting to show. She is hating day time sleep just like her siblings did. She only wants to be held to sleep and when she does sleep its no longer than an hour but most often 20 or so minuets. Kreg was the same way as a baby so it apparently runs in the family. Thankfully she is happy when she is awake, but likes to be held. Looks like we will need to bust out the carrier this week!
~She is wearing newborn diapers and clothes still. Not quite 7LBS. as you can see her weight is in her cheeks and double chin!
~She is starting to be unpredictable at night, some nights she will wake at 2:00 am and then again at 4:30 and some nights she'll sleep till 5. We are surviving but of course tired.
~She is really starting to focus and track things and people with her eyes, she is trying to smile, especially when we clap her hands together. We are so excited for her to start interacting more!
~We have another binky and swaddle baby on our hands!
Cora girl is 3 weeks already! Most days I feel like she has been here forever! I love that newborns just seem to fit perfectly in the family and you instantly forget what life was like with out them.
Cora at 3 weeks is
Sleeping amazingly! she Wakes up around 8 am and is awake for 3-4 hours, then eats and sleeps on and off until around 5-6pm has another long awake time till about 9-10:30 then sleeps till 4:30-5am eats goes right back to sleep till 8 am. It is perfect for us!
She eats 2-3 ounces every 3 or so hours during the day
She weighs 6.9 as of friday at the DR. so she gained 5 oz in a week!
She developed a little baby acne this week on her cheeks, so along with her runny right eye and her peeling skin that leaves her hair kinda dandruff (y) she looks a little worked right now but we think she is beautiful!
She is focusing on our faces with her eyes more and more and today when I was talking to her, I could tell she was trying to smile. It will be anytime now!
She is a very noisy baby, she squeaks and grunts all the time, the DR and Nurse even mentioned how noisy she was, but they both said she is happy though and she really is! Like I mentioned before that she has two really long awake times during the day and during those times she is just happy. She only really fusses if you don't get her food quick enough or she is cold.
She loves to be swaddled and loves her Binky just like the other 2 kids. I haven't tried wearing her in a carrier yet but I plan to this week. I have a feeling she will love it! She is also like the other two kids and not to stoked on the bouncer or the swing. She likes to be held or just put in her bed for sleeping.
