Weight: 15 lbs 3 oz (weighed at the pediatrician this time)
Feeding: Oh our Zoe girl loves to eat! If you start feeding her and stop for a millisecond, she gets fussy; if she sees you eating and not sharing, she becomes irate. So far she hasn’t been displeased with anything that she has eaten, but she does seem to have a rather giant preference for bread, soups, carrots and water. Zoe is also plowing through her bottles and has FINALLY stopped spitting up so very very much.
Clothing: 6-9 month clothing, 100%. I feel as though she has a really long torso which is making us plow through clothing sizes so rapidly (but let’s be honest, girl has some rolls going on.)
Naps: This month I tried transitioning us to two naps a day instead of three, however it did not go well. For right now, we are doing three 45-60 minute naps a day, but if she happens to miss one or it gets delayed too much, she can do two okay.
Sleeping: I can not sing enough praises about Zoe’s sleeping habits. My goal is to not be fully aware of the fact tat I have children between the hours of 9pm and 7am and she pretty much lets that happen. As long as I remember that she is a voracious eater and I feed her enough, she wakes up maybe once or twice a night for me to stick a binky back in, but sleeps from about 7 to 7/7:30.
Likes: Looking outside, bath time (especially with Eli), eating, soft things (cat, dog, bunny, blanky), being jiggled and tossed around a bit.
Dislikes: Poo diapers (HATES them, can’t blame her :)), not having ALL the attention on her, being left alone for too long.
Development: She’s rolling over!!! It feels as though she is behind Eli physically, but that may juts be because I don’t love the infant stage. She is laughing and responding to us a lot more and starting to move herself around.
Sibling Update: Eli is still so kind and generous and patient with Zoe, he loves to play with her and is such a big giant help. I try really hard to remember to tell her not to pull his hair or pinch him, because I’m constantly having to remind Eli to be gentle. I am just over the moon with how much they adore each other.
Mom and Dad Update: Life is good guys, life is really really good. We have these two amazing, loud children and even when they are challenging, there is so much joy in our world. Now that sleep is back on track, we will begin having at home date nights again!
