How was your weekend? Were you able to enjoy a three day MLK weekend?
From Sadie: This posting is of my Week 12 Update ... I turned 12 weeks last Monday (and 13 weeks today!). Tomorrow I turn 3 MONTHS OLD. Whew. I'll post some 3 month photos soon. In the meantime, enjoy! Note, before my postings were about the days leading up to my weekly birthdays, but I am going to switch them to be about the week of the birthday (since I post them later in the week anyways).
Sadie's Week 12 Update:
Weight: Mommy is guessing that I am pushing 12 lbs now ...maybe 13? It's been a few weeks now since my doc appt.
Height: Probably about the same as last time.
Health: As healthy as can be!
Sleep: Sleep is another issue of sorts ... there is good news and bad news. The good news is I had TWO nights last week that I slept pretty much from the time I finally fell asleep (get to that in a minute) around 9 pm ...until Mommy waked me in the morning - and in my own bed at that.
Not always, but sometimes I've been having fussy evenings from about 7 pm - 9 pm. Part of that may had to do with my getting use to Gramby (Ya Ya - her new name that Max calls her) and Pop's house. I didn't nap well there last Wed - Friday. Tonight (Monday) my fussy / crying only lasted until about 7:45 pm (and I slept in my bed).
But now that I am three months old (well, I will be tomorrow!) I could also be hitting some growth spurts!
Diet: Mommy's Milk. Every 3 - 4 hours (or at night - longer stretches).
Social: The biggest thing is it was Mommy's first week back to work ... sigh. But I got to spend a lot of time with Mimi ...and also with Ya Ya (formally known as Gramby) and Pops (and Bean!). We didn't really go anywhere or see anyone, but we had fun. This past weekend though I went with the family on a few outings including Discovery Green, and we also went to meet Mommy's friend J and her new baby A! We'll have to share photos soon.
Clothes: 3 Months and 3 - 6 Months ... in these photos I am in some Carter's PJs. Do you have Carter's in your wardrobe? What does your Wee One like to wear?
Baby Gear: I'm loving my various baby gyms I have ... I'm enjoying looking and grabbing more and more each day. I also have a new blanket (thanks Kim!) that has tags, and I started loving on it today. I love to grab it and chew it! What baby gear are you loving? What can you not live without?
Crying: I've been crying a LOT, but I miss my Mommy! Sometimes I also just really have to cry to make myself feel better.
Likes: I love when my brother sings to me. I also like smiling and looking at faces. I like eating my hands lately too.
Postpartum: From Mommy - First week back to work. Dread. Now to make it through all the rest until summer. Eep! I also finally joined the Downtown YMCA (although it's a citywide membership). Very excited to jump back in with some exercise.
Milestones: My longest time away from Mommy! And I think my other biggest milestone this week is I blew bubbles! Mommy saw me accidently blow them before, but I blew a LOT of bubbles this past Friday ... and brother kept saying "bubbles! Bubbles!" He really enjoyed that.
What is Max Up To This Week?: Speaking of brother ... some of his new favorite words lately are "stuck" (sounds like suck) and "hide" ... He often gets stuck (or something gets stuck) and lots of things like to hide!
He also really loves running up and down the hill at Discovery Green.
So what are you up to this week?
