Holly: 11 Weeks Old

May 22, 2016

Every time I look at this little girl, I just can’t help but beam.

I think it’s because she’s just so smiley, and she’s always in such a good mood. Her little personality is shining through so much, and I can tell that she’s just gonna be a happy. light hearted, silly girl. I don’t even know how to explain it, but her and I have these little jokes together. I’ll give her a look, and she will smile back, and then it makes me laugh, and then she giggles. Ugh it’s just so amazing, and so cute.

We’re starting to get in to a pattern of being awake more during the day. At first I kind of starting freaking out, because it was around this point with Logan that things got really difficult. He was awake all the time, I couldn’t get him to sleep longer than 20-30 minutes, and I was exhausted. The funny thing now is that Holly is kind of in the same pattern as Logan was in the morning, but maybe because she’s just calm about it, or maybe because I’ve had experience, it doesn’t bother me anymore.

Holly starts her day around 6:30 -7 [the last two night’s she’s slept until 4:30am!!] and she will be awake until about 9:30 when she takes her first little cat nap for about 30 minutes. Then she’s up again and we play or go out and walk. Logan and I keep her busy on the play mat, or have her sit in the kitchen with us while we bake or make lunch. I’ll nurse her while Logan and I eat lunch and she usually falls asleep on me, so I’ll move her to our room in her Rock N Play [we call it the taco bed since it folds up like a taco]. And this is when she’s down for the count. Holly takes a really good 4 hour nap at this point. [and this mama is lucky, because so does Logan].

So even though she’s awake in the morning, it’s been an easy adjustment for us. And Logan just loves to play with her so much. He always tells me that he’s making her laugh, and any school work or craft project we’re doing he make sure that he shows Holly.

The only hardship we’re really having with Holly is with the bottle. She’s just not in to it. And I guess part of what makes it hard is that I’m always here, so there’s no need to really push the bottle. But if I go to the store and Logan watches both kids, or if we wanted to go out to dinner, it would be hard because she barely drinks out of it. We’ve tried a few different brands, and not a whole lot of luck. I know it’s something that if we just started doing more she would be fine, but ughhhhh, then I have to pump. Boo to pumping.

This is the week of new noises too. Lots of squeals, loud screams, coos, giggles. The bath is also still one of her favorite things. She’s also getting a lot stronger. She kicks really hard, can push her self up a little bit, and is almost able to hold up that big ole noggin’. She loves to engage in conversation. I’ll start talking to her and tell her to talk back to me and she just laughs or squeaks, like she knows just what I’m saying.

Holy Holly Hair Say that ten times fast. But seriously, the one thing I’ve noticed changed the most this week with Little Missy Poo is her hair. She’s got a ton of new fuzz, and I feel like it’s really coming forward more on the crown of her head too. We had Holly’s 2 month […]

I seriously think I might have the easiest baby in the world. Maybe it’s a gift from God for Logan being such a hard little guy. But every week that I go to write these posts I feel like I don’t have much to write about because, well, she just sleeps. Like, I’m starting to […]
