11 weeks

Happy 11 weeks sweet girl! We love you so! What a big week this has been for you! We begin our last week together on maternity leave and it is bittersweet .... we love watching you grow, but at the same time it's too fast!! Your 11th week was a big week:

July 31, 2011 - 11 weeks
  • you had your 2 month check-up - you have great stats: 11.2 lbs, 22 1/2 inches! You've gained almost 4 lbs since birth and grown over 2 inches!
  • you had your first round of immunizations - not fun! But they did make you really sleepy the next day. You were pretty fussy that night, but after a few hours calmed down and slept well.
  • you've quit sleeping as well as you were at night - BOO! You started out the week sleeping your normal 7-10 hours between feedings, but the past 3 days you've been up after as little as 5-6 hours. We're hoping it's just temporary!
  • this has been a tough week for you - the colic has been bad and the days have been long. We're hoping as you are nearing 3 months that you're almost finished with colic!
  • the swaddle makes you mad now, it's not calming for the first few minutes - not sure what we're going to do as you still don't have control over those sweet arms and can't sleep unswaddled. Any one have any tips?
  • you can almost scoot yourself around full circle on your play mat and hit a lot of your toys while playing
  • napping is still not great -some days you won't sleep more than 20-30 minutes during the day - and some days you'll take at least one 2 hour nap.
  • you're smiling a lot more in response to our smiles!
  • your Aunt Wren came to visit you and your big sister this weekend - had so much fun!
  • you've had a busy week with play dates, birthday lunches, and company - you have rolled well with the punches!
Sucking on your hand and a half grin all at the same time!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
