Sadie here ... How was your weekend?
Mommy has been REALLY dragging lately ...but we are trying to catch up now with my Week 16 Update from last week! I actually turn 17 weeks TODAY (Monday), and I am 4 months on Friday (Feb 22nd). Where is time going?
First .... our weekend. It was another busy one. How about yours? Mommy got her hair cut on Saturday morning, and Saturday afternoon Max started his soccer again - GOAL... I really enjoyed watching him (well, I always enjoy watching him). After soccer on Saturday, we went to enjoy some sun at City Centre ... and then we went to enjoy some more outdoor time at Discovery Green in Downtown Houston, and it was near all of the All Star Game action. We also went to one of our favorite international grocery stores, Phoenicia.
Sunday was mostly our usual (church, Whole Foods), but Mommy and Daddy also celebrated Valentine's Day by going to the Houston Symphony (Mommy says - thank you, Daddy! xo). And thank you Mimi and PP for watching us. Whew... hopefully we can share fun pics of our weekend soon. But first ....
Sadie's Week 16 Update
Weight: Well, I had to go visit the doc for my first non-Well visit not last week, but the week before last at the end of the week for a bad diaper rash (Thursday I believe?).
They weighed me! I was 13.25 lbs at the appt. So I am guessing I am over that now. Yikes.
Height: Not sure, but I have my 4 month check up coming up a week from today / Monday - I should find out then!
Health: Everything has been as good as gold except for the bad diaper rash ... We found out I had a yeast infection rash which is very common for itty bitty babies. I'm still taking the meds, but it is pretty much all cleared up now!
Sleep: Things are going about as well as they had before. Things are off and on better with the Grandparents. I've had a few days last week where I slept really well for an extended period time in my bed at their house. But it hasn't been happening each and every day all day, YET.
We are trying to stick to the CIO (Cry It Out) method for now.
Things are going pretty well at home!
Diet: Mommy's Milk Only!
Social: Well, not this past weekend...but the weekend prior we celebrated Ya Ya's birthday. I went out to eat to my first German restaurant.
Also since I talked to you last, I had my first beauty salon visit with Ya Ya.
Clothes: Same as before - 3 months and 3 - 6 months clothes. The onesie I am wearing in this photoshoot is from Carter's. I'm also holding my Pottery Barn Kids bunny lovey in many photos. Mommy probably would have dressed me up even fancier, but sometimes she just has to take photos when she has the opportunity to do so!
Baby Gear: Lately I am really loving anything I can grab (can't you tell from these photos). That includes my lovies, rattles, toys, and more! Well, most of all I probably love grabbing Mommy's hair.
Likes: Everything the same as before ... AND ... I love sitting up, but I can't sit up yet, so that is the problem. I love looking around. I love trying to reach for things (like my toes!). I love attempting to roll over. And I love laughing! Mommy has yet to capture it on video, but she is going to keep trying.
Postpartum: From Mommy - I am definitely losing hair now. And the same update as before. Although I fell off the wagon a tiny bit with the gym, but I will jump back in it this week.
Milestones: The biggest one would have to be rolling over without Mommy seeing! I rolled over from tummy to back at Mimi and Grampis. I think it only happened one time.
It hasn't happened at home yet!
I'm also grabbing my toes (or trying to) a lot more now. And I love to talk a lot, but that isn't a new milestone.
He repeats (or tries to) nearly every word lately. He is singing a lot! He will sing the end note of songs.
We also do the ABC song, and he can fill in some of the letters.
... so what about you? How was your weekend? And what are you up to this week?
