Stats: Nothing official this month but I think she’s gained a couple of pounds and her head is bigger (she is rapidly outgrowing hats). Will get stats at her 4 month appt.
Size: This girl is GROWING. I’ve packed up most of her 3 month sized clothes and brought out 3-6 month and 6 month sizes. At this rate I’m going to need to buy her some more clothes to get through winter as Gretchen wasn’t in 6 or 9 month clothes til spring.
Sleep: Cora slept through the night for the first time at 10 weeks. It was something like 11pm to 6am. Since then she’s repeated that frequently and has done some really long stretches from 8pm to 6 or 7am. Some nights she does wake up at 4 or 5 but she consistently sleeps 5-6 hours straight now.
Eating: I ended up weaning Cora just shy of 10 weeks. She was refusing the breast more than she would take it and there was lots of screaming, popping off, and as a result, clogged ducts. I knew it was time. We’ve been giving her 5-7oz first thing in the morning when she STTN. Then she’ll want to eat every 2 hours or so during the day, typically taking 3-4oz.
Likes: Being on the changing table (this is where she smiles and giggles the most), kicking her feet, staring at black and white pictures, really warm bottles, her playmat, staring at the Christmas tree.
Dislikes: Tummy time, being woken up by her loud sister and pug, wearing hats.
Firsts: Rolled tummy to back (10 weeks), slept through the night (10 weeks), first Christmas, first laughs!
