Onto the real point of this post, the monthly update:
Eat: about 7-9 times a day
Sleep: usually up by 6am and down by 9pm. Nighttime is spent in the rock and play sleeper and naps are spent in the cradle or on the bed. She still likes her arms to be swaddled.
Shoes: she sported her little Puma shoes a few days ago (size 0). They didn't stay on well, but oh so cute.
Clothes: 0-3 and 3 month clothes. She is wearing the 6-9 month Gerber onesies which brings me to the question of, does anyone's baby really fit into the gerber onesie sizes at the same age? They seem to be so teeny tiny.
Diapers: We are on the last package of size 1 and will be moving up a size after it's gone.
Trips: to Fayetteville on Mother's Day weekend for Greg's graduation
Likes: being held, eating, baths (most of the time), flashing "I'm a big stinker but I look so sweet" smiles
Dislikes: turning her head to the left for sleep, feet being covered up during naps/night, staying asleep in the carseat once the car stops
Milestones: This month Nora tried out the bumbo (8w), really started making eye contact (6.5w), coos while I sing to her (7.5w)
Other: We think that Nora will be a little less dramatic than big sis...we shall see! Also, this month Nora went to her first birthday party and first wedding (all in the same day). She did a great job and got plenty of "oooohs" and "aaaaahs" from everyone.
Some Emmy things that I don't want to forget:
- Apparently Emmy loves to dance at wedding receptions.
- She demands all the time "say it!". She will tell us this if we ask her a question and she doesn't want to answer it. Or sometimes it's just to repeat what she has just said. I am unsure if this is a bossy pants issue, or if it's actually a language development thing...anyone know?
- She LOVES Dora....ugh
- Emmy loves the idea of an ice cone (aka sno cone) but doesn't actually like to eat one.
- She knows NO stranger, she is such a happy social being. But we really need to start teaching her about stranger danger.
And a picture to end with....my girls each at 2 months.
