We are starting to get smiles from this little girl. It makes the fussy times easier when you know this face is in there somewhere. Having her small interactions makes her seem more like a real person and less like a squishy blob.
She has gained almost 2 pounds and over an inch in height and the doctor said she looked beautiful and healthy at her check up this morning. I started pumping this week so we can bottle feed her too. We went out to dinner for my birthday and could stay out longer than 90 minutes! She is also up to sleeping about 5 hours at night and getting better at soothing herself to sleep during her daytime naps. woo hoo!
Finally we had a break from all the rain this week and I was able to use my birthday present. All these years crying about not having a hammock, I finally got one! Not quite confident in balancing her on my chest for a nap, but maybe someday :)
I can't complain too much about the rain because it left plenty of time for indoor snuggling. CeCe has been very patient and extra cuddly and is more and more comfortable with Fi everyday. As evident here:
Pat has been back to work after a month off. I was nervous about my first week alone, but I had lots of lovely visitors to get me through. Regardless, it's easy to say we all miss him when he is gone.
