That face

June 23, 2014 | I took her monthly photos, but wanted to share this one first.  Just because of her happy/content face.  She’s amazing that kid!

– Makes farting noises with her mouth (very classy) & a new high-pitched squeal
– Upped her most-milk-ever-eaten-from-a-bottle to 5.5 ounces!
– Tummy-time is awesome, but no sign of rolling over yet
– Pretty much let’s us sleep through the night, with the occasional “re-swaddle me!”

  • You love when we pretend to yawn/sneeze — it gets the best smiles!
  • You are drinking 3-4 oz per feed, more towards 4 now that day care gives you bottles so we know the exact amounts
  • Standing (assisted) is your favorite, along with lots of babbling.  We wish we knew all of the things you are trying to tell us!
  • Daddy provides the 8:30 bottle/last feed of the day.  I love that you have this time with him, and many nights you’ll sleep until 3-4 AM.  Unless you break out of the swaddle…
  • Speaking of swaddle, you tend to break free a lot more which wakes you up.  We aren’t sure how to break the swaddle-habit, so we are avoiding doing anything…ha!
  • Cloth diapers have been working really well, and I wish we would have started them sooner.  It feels good to know that we aren’t creating so much trash, and they are pretty darn easy to boot.  Even day care is letting us use them there!

Last day of Maternity Leave

June 2, 2014 | It was hard to believe, but just a few days ago was my last day with little E on Maternity Leave.  So I made sure to take TONS of photos, and do lots of things that will not be happening daily anymore…

We read books...love that pudgy hand!

It was certainly a challenging, but awesome time with you little Bean…and I know you’re in good hands at day care even if I miss you constantly!
