Wow! I can't believe I haven't written on the blog in a whole month. Well, I guess I can, but it still seems like a long time. I am sure you all have stopped checking it, but hopefully this will be a nice surprise if it has stumbled across your mind to check again.
Beau's first thanksgiving went well and she was very good, although I think the whole week turned her schedule upside down. She adjusted well though, and is right back on her normal schedule this week which includes sleeping through the night! What does her normal schedule consist of you might ask? Well here is a basic run down:
7:30- Wake up and eat
8-9- Lay on the floor and kick around/sit in her chair/smile at mom
9-10:30 or 11- Morning nap
10:30- Eat again
1-1:30- Quick Nap
1:30- Eat again
2-3- Play with dad when he gets home from work
3-4:30- Afternoon nap
4:30- Eat again
5-7- Play with mom and dad/Bath time with dad
7-7:30- Quick nap
7:30- Eat again
8-9:30- Fussy time/Walk around with mom
9:30- Last feeding
10- Off to bed
This is basically what it looks like. Eat-Wake-Sleep. She eats every 3-3.5 hours now. And now that she is sleeping through the night she will progress to eating every 4 hours which will be AWESOME!
She went to the doctor yesterday for her 2 month checkup which really was more like her 2.5 month check up. She is 11 lbs. 11 oz. and only 22 inches long. She has already gained 75% of her weight (they need to double their birth weight by 6 months, she was 6 lbs. 5oz. when she was born), but she is considered short because she is only in the 5 percentile of height. No worries though Dr. Hester says, she is a healthy baby girl. She also got her first round of shots. It was so sad and she cried and was upset after, but she went to sleep and woke up just fine. She hasn't run a fever, so she feels fine I think. She just wanted to sleep a little more yesterday afternoon so we let her sleep.
I apologize for no pictures, but I forget to take pictures on our actual camera. I am going to become better at it, promise! I will upload another video soon. Just her playing and smiling. Hopefully I will write before January 1, but don't hold me to it! It's Christmas and I will be super busy!
