It’s really hard to get a good photo of a baby who can’t sit up or even hold their own head up. She’s got a wicked case of baby acne here, but we know that will clear up soon. She’s doing a great job knowing the difference between day and night, but she’s always been good with that. These days we’re giving her a bath with M at about 6:30pm and she’s usually asleep by 8pm swaddled in her crib. Some nights she gets up before I go to bed to nurse again (but even that is starting to stop), and some nights she sleeps until 12 or 1 and then doesn’t get up again until 5 or so! Last night was an amazing night. Horrible evening of the little one screaming through bath and bedtime of the big one (R was working late for the third night), but the night was great! She went to bed by 8pm and didn’t get up until 2:30am. That’s six and a half hours of sleep for her! I didn’t go to bed until 10pm of course. Then she was up again at 6:00am, but went back to sleep a little after eating – long enough that I was able to take a shower while both girls slept. I count that as only getting up once during the night. So it’s usually once or twice during the night and is trending towards being just once! Usually for the 5am or so feeding she’s then up for the morning, going back to sleep in the car on the way to drop M off at school around 7:45am. She sleeps quite a lot during the day, with at least one of those times being a significant nap swaddled in her crib. But she’s also starting to be a lot more alert when she is awake. She’s a great baby!
At an appointment 2 weeks ago they found blood in her stool, so advised me to cut dairy out of my diet. It’s been two weeks and there is just a tiny little bit of blood detected in her stool, so they advised me to stay off the dairy.
Woohooo. Happy one month!
