Stats: 13lbs 3 oz (86%), 23 in long (68%), head circumference 16 in (97%).

Size: Still wearing 0-3/ 3 month clothing but I think she may outgrow some of the sleepers soon.  I’m going to pull out some 3-6 month clothes and see if they fit.  She is growing fast! She no longer fits her newborn size cloth diapers.  Wearing size 1 disposables.

Sleep: 6 hr stretch is the longest stretch so far. She has longer stretches of being awake during the day but still naps a lot. Sometimes just 3o minutes, sometimes and hour.  It all kind of blurs together honestly.  We typically only have to get up with her 2x a night and we each take a turn.

Eating: We are still combo feeding.  I usually breastfeed Cora 3 times a day when my breasts feel full.  She seems to be growing frustrated with breastfeeding though and screams at the boob a lot, especially in the evening.  So we’ll see how much longer she wants it.  I’d like to make it to 12 weeks like I did with Gretchen but I’m just following her cues.  She typically takes a 4 oz bottle and likes us to warm them up a bit or at least be room temp. She eats frequently in the morning, about every 2 hours, then starts to have longer stretches in the afternoon, frequent feedings in the evening, and long stretches over night.

Likes: Her paci, being swaddled, warm baths, playing on her play mat, butt pats, looking at faces, being around her sister, staring at Christmas lights on the tree.

Dislikes: Cold formula bottles, frequent stops in the car, being woken up by her loud sister and her troubley pug.

Firsts: First smile at 7 weeks old, also started vocalizing around that point.
