Becca is such an easy-going baby so far, and growing like a weed! We’re switching pediatricians so we don’t have her official stats yet, but she’s outgrowing the length on her 0-3 month pants already, although she’s skinny so the elastic waists don’t exactly stay up.
She’s generally a good sleeper, and even some of the times when she wakes up in the night she’s not screaming or crying, but just starts cooing and talking. I still get up to try to nurse or rock her back to sleep because I’m not up for a conversation at that time of night, but the noises are so happy to hear! She’ll talk to us while she’s sitting in her bouncy seat in the kitchen or living room, too, just to feel like a part of the action, I’m sure.
She’s still enough of a newborn that there are some days when she doesn’t nap very well at all, followed by days when I have to wake her up from her naps because it’s time to eat. Being the second kid, though, she’s got to go with the flow, which she does pretty well. If we go somewhere in the morning I try to wait until after she falls asleep for her nap and she’ll sleep in her carrier (I’m using the baby k’tan now and it’s working really well, although she doesn’t really like being in it when she’s awake). It’s one thing to say that every baby is different, but it’s funny experiencing how they actually are! Will always wanted to nurse to sleep, and while I still try that, there are times when I try to nurse her and she refuses because she’s tired, not hungry. There are also times when I lay her in her bed and she opens her eyes to look at me and then closes them to go to sleep – it’s so weird having a good sleeper! I have to keep that in mind the few nights (like last night) when we spend a lot of time awake and get up early.
We’re so glad that Becca has made us a family of four and we’re glad to have her here for the last 2 months. It seems hard to believe it’s been that long already, but it’s also hard to remember what it was like before she was here!
