Happy 4 week Birthday

If you go by weeks, Sofia's 4 week birthday was yesterday. If you go by date, she'll be a month old tomorrow. Either way, Happy Birthday. =)

Things are going well. We went to a football watching party at one of our neighbors over the weekend. We had a good time and got to me some new people as well as get some ideas for things to do with the house (since their place is almost the same floor plan). They had hardwoods which looked really nice. We went out to dinner Friday night and made it to the grocery yesterday. Today we've got to go back to Mommy's doctor, tomorrow we are going to the dentist, and we might stop by work later this week or early next week.

Now, if we could just get Miss Sofie to sleep in her crib we'd be doing great! She'll sleep in your arms, she'll sleep in her car seat, she'll sleep in her papasan chair, she'll sleep on a blanket beside you, she just won't sleep in her crib. You can put her in there if she is asleep, but once she wakes up, she wants out.

Jack thinks we put the blanket down for him.

There is no snooze on a baby.

Things are going good here. We got out of the house the past 3 days! Saturday we went to Sam's Club and out to lunch. Sunday we went to the grocery store. And today we went for Mommy's doctor appointment (that wasn't fun!). It looks like we will be out to dinner tomorrow night as our friend Katie will be in town from Colorado.

And we are getting better about sleeping at night, not perfect, but better. She will be up for about an hour with each night time feeding and then sleep for about 2, which is much better than being up from 2am until 6am. The better she is about sleeping through the night, the more we'll be getting out of the house. I'm in search of some cheap, in-between clothes. My maternity clothes are falling off of me, but I'm far from fitting into my pre-pregnancy stuff.

We decided to go with formula (which I think is helping her to sleep longer). She is a much more pleasant baby, and I'm a much more pleasant mommy (plus Daddy can participate). We did breast feed for just over 2 weeks, and she did a number on me! We stopped breastfeeding last Tuesday, and I'm just now healing. My lactation consultant called to see how things were going, and I told her we decided to go with formula. She was funny, she said "Don't tell anyone a lactation consultant told you this, but I really think that was the best decision for you."

Daddy and baby are sleeping, so I suppose I should be sleeping too.

It's been awhile

I know, it's been awhile, but we are still adjusting. And right now, when I've got time, I'm usually sleeping. We had our 2 weeks check up today. Everything is normal and on track. Sofia is in the 90th percentile for her height, but she's in the 50th percentile for everything else. It was a bit of a long day because our appointment was early this morning and we didn't get our morning nap. Actually, I haven't gotten any naps today, but it did feel nice to get out. There isn't a whole lot to update on since we don't get out too much yet, but hopefully, that'll change soon!
