Really??!! It's been a month? Oh my! I have been so busy! I have many posts started and none finished! Here goes a monthly update!
|She's gaining some wight. There are little bitty rolls starting to form on her thighs!|
I don't exactly know Heidi's weight! I'm guessing somewhere around 7 pounds. We have moved on from Priemie diapers into newborn. We only stayed in priemies so long because her umbilical cord hung on for 4 whole weeks! Now it's ok for the diaper to cover her belly button! Although, she will still fit in primes, I have SO many packages of newborn and they are just so cute! Order them here: Honest.com
|Getting her vitamin D while her brother, sister and cousin play in the backyard.|
Once we left the NICU, we have been great! No sickness (J or C either), knock on wood!
|Snoozing away on our family trip|
Homegirl sleeps almost all day and night still. Only waking up about every 3 hours because she needs to eat and occasionally because she wants to be snuggles or needs a diaper. It's rare for her to cry over a diaper, although every time I go to change her she is wet or dirty! I guess she doesn't mind it.
|Matching Easter dresses with her cousin Kailyn.|
Not planned but SO cute!
|On the Hot Air Balloon ride!|
People have come over to see her. She doesn't really wake for them, LOL. We did take a family trip! Read about it here.
Oh man! These kids melt my heart! Jeremy is SO sweet to Heidi-Rae. He sings her songs he made up, he snuggles with her, he constantly asks if she can sleep in his bed one night. . . We'll wait a few months! Capri loves "mommy-ing" Heidi! She is always the first to tell me the second the baby cries! We absolutely adore the way she says Heidi-Rae. The past week she has become a bit jealous. When I am holding Heidi, Capri doesn't like it. Or she wants to be right up on me while I nurse. WE have been able to curve it a little by encouraging her to do whatever I am doing with Heidi, with her baby. It depends on her mood if she follows suit!
It seems that Heidi is a Mama's girl! That's pretty common for infants BUT by this point in Jeremy and Capri short life, we could already tell they were ALL about Daddy! I'll keep fostering a Mommy's girl and we'll see what happens! We use our carriers quite often! I love having her so close.
|Hiking up Mountain Roubidoux on Easter.|
2 miles up hill! Whew, that was a little tough.
To give some perspective:
6 weeks 28 weeks 36 weeks
Jeremy: 36" 37"
Capri: 37" 37" 40"
Heidi: 37" 40" 41"
Grand total of 5 inches overall! But there is some hope seeing that they went back to 37" when I started with Capri! We'll see what getting older does to me!
|Does this picture just melt your heart??|
The happiest baby: In church, during worship,
being worn by mommy, holding Daddy's finger!
Ah the life!
