Baby Update

I’m blogging today for my own sanity – a slight connection to the outside world, not because I have anything interesting to say.

Sleep deprivation = nothing witty to write at this particular moment.

Baby is beautiful, amazing, and wonderful. She is gaining weight, though she still hadn’t regained her birth weight as of Christmas Eve. She’s eating, sleeping, and doing lots of things that involve bodily fluids all day long. She prefers to sleep during the day, not at night. She tends to need a diaper change right in the middle of the rare, but necessary naps I try (usually unsuccessfully) to take. She is a tiny, perfect, little handful!

Christmas was good. Baby partied all night and slept all day. She slept through the opening of her gifts … I suspect the coming years will be quite a different story. We tried to dress her in several of the cute Christmas dresses we bought before she was born. Christmas Dress = FAIL. She’s still too tiny for some ‘newborn’ sizes, so she definitely didn’t fit into the 0-3 month sized dresses. Since my one-month old didn’t exactly want to sport the ‘off-the shoulder’ look, she ended up in yet another snuggly, comfy set of pajamas.

Anyway, apologies for the really boring blog today. I have about an hour before I need to bottle prep, diaper change, feed, etc. the little angel …. That is, if she’ll actually sleep that long. She seems to have a sixth sense for crying any time I want to eat, sleep, or do anything besides sit on the couch and watch her sleep in her bouncer. Must (try to) nap now.

  1. I feel your pain about the sleep... Eli is great most of the time, but usually once in the day (typically mid afternoon or late evening) in between feedings, he refuses to calm down enough to take a nap, and is only content if he's being held.
