[Wednesday's Weekly Check-In] Week 29

Things are CRAZY right now, readers.  I'll do a separate post to catch up, but bear with me right now!


Weight:
Probably 18lbs


Health:
Great.  Got her flu shot on Monday and didn't even have any side effects.



Sleep:
For the most part pretty amazing.  She goes down for naps about three times a day (9ish, 12ish, and 3:30ish) and because of turning the clocks back she somehow got all rescheduled and now bedtime is 7pm and she's getting up for the day closer to 7am.  She still wakes around 12-1 to eat and a few other times for the pacifier.  Not every night is perfect (last night I pulled her into bed with us around 3 because I didn't want to play the pacifier game), but its going so much better.  I have to thank solids, right?



Clothes:
Occasionally some of her 3-6, specifically tops. And 6-12 otherwise. Loving living in jammies with the chilly weather.

Social
Grandparent Weekend.  Saw Bopo on Friday Night, even staying up past her bedtime.  Mom-Mom and Great Mom-Mom on Saturday, and Nana and PopPop on Sunday.  And of course she was a ham when we went to vote on Tuesday.  All the little old ladies loved her.



Diet:
Added peas, avocado, and applesauce to our menu this week.  We did avocado on Saturday and she could not eat it fast enough, literally shoveling it her mouth.  It was funny to see since you might remember avocado was my big pregnancy craving.  However, the next day I cut up another to mash, and she was gagging.  Literally, tongue out dry heaving.  I guess she only likes very ripe avocados!


Next up butternut squash.



Baby Gear Love:
Pack N Play is back in action.  With the bassinet portion out, we can use it as intended, a play pen.  Which is great when I want to run to the bathroom, make the bed, get cleaned up since I took away the bouncer which she was minutes from flinging herself out of.

She's not too far away from being completely over the jumperoo too.  I'm lucky if I can get 5 minutes in it before she wants out.



Crying:
Overtired meltdowns thanks to the clock change.

(everyone loves daddy!)


Mommy:
Finally weighed myself. Officially back to my wedding weight, which isn't surprising considering my limited diet.  I'm trying to eat more and keep on adding healthy fats, more avocado, more olive oil, more pasta... okay, that's not a healthy fat, but hopefully it helps me add back some weight.


Milestones:
Nothing crazy.... Election Day, more new foods.  Getting a little better when other people hold her, as long as I'm near by to reassure her.

    1. Just like her mom, supermodel jeans never fit! And so many people said solids would help, but I wanted to wait for a few reasons, now I'm a little upset I didn't start them sooner. I'm only doing one feeding a day around 11am, but thinkng of adding another around 5pm see if it gets her through the night. Maybe not, but worth a shot!

  5. Why are things crazy? Hope all is well.

    I'm sleep deprived and behind on blogs with a 2 and 1/2 week old!

    She just gets more and more cute every week. I love all of her expressions! Thanks for sharing.
