Ch ch changes

Evangeline is just changing so fast it’s mindboggling. 9 weeks today. She can hold her head up like a champ. She loves nursing as much as always and it’s become her security blanket, when she feels uncomfortable or nervous in a new environment she just wants to nurse and nurse. She is all smiles these days, smilling at me all day long and melting my heart. She like having her diaper changed now and seems to love her change pad, likes looking all around and checking out everything around while I change her. Today is the first time I was able to put her in her swing awake (she woke during the transfer) and she didn’t cry immidiately, allowing me time to shower, dry off and get dressed before she started crying for me, perfect. She has gone 3 days today without pooping, this from 6 days originally, then 3ish times, then she started holding it all night and releasing it all by 1pm and now nothing, and so we wait πŸ˜‰
She is in an endearing but exausting mom love phase. By this I mean she wants me and only me around the clock. She cries and cries when anyone else holds her, she semi tolerates Dad πŸ™‚ she wants to be attached to me all the time so I wear her alot. I mostly love the honor, it just gets tough with showering, eating, dressing, undressing, getting housework done ect.. So as I said I am often popping her into the snugli and wearing her around.
She is now wearing 3 month clothing my growing girl. She has NB outfits she outgrew in 3 weeks.
The biggest and best change is her nightime temprament. Don’t want to talk to soon, but we have had 4 nights cry free with easy transition to bed. She is sleeping much lighter, wakes up whilst being transfered from me to her swing/our bed, but can typically be soothed back to sleep easily.
She is sleeping awesome overnight, we are well rested to be sure. She is typically asleep by 10:30 and sleeps 4-6 hours, wakes for a feeding, back asleep within 20 minutes then back up to eat 3-4 hours later, sleep again, wake up around 9 or 10 am, eat and up for the day. I am loving co-sleeping with her sooo much. I love how I can put my hand on her belly and feel her breath without really waking up and I love watching her sleep in the morning, stretching and waking up all snuggling cozy.

Parenting her is getting more rewarding and interesting every day. She is so beautiful.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  3. Awww…I’m glad Evangeline’s sleep is getting a lot more manageable. It makes all the difference in sanity when you’re getting more sleep as well.
