It’s Saturday and that means it’s time for the weekly Willow update! I enjoyed writing my pregnancy journal and sharing my journey with everyone so much that I have decided to continue by writing about Willow’s first year. And so each week I will be sharing how my baby girl is growing and changing plus lots of pictures!
PICTURES FROM WILLOW’S 10th WEEK
WHAT WILLOW’S DAYS & NIGHTS ARE LIKE…
Sleeping: We’ve said bye-bye to the swaddling days and instead Willow prefers pajama gowns and sleep sacks. She’s also decided that sleeping by herself in the Fisher-Price Rock n Play Sleeper isn’t cool anymore and has pretty much moved to co-sleeping with mama. No complaints here – I love waking up to that adorable face. It’s pretty much impossible to wake up in a bad mood when there is such a cute face staring back at ya.
Eating: I do believe Willow is on a growth spurt right now. The past couple days I could barely set her down at all because all she wanted to do was nurse, nurse, nurse. So basically I have been hanging out on the couch with her with my boob out all day. (Don’t ya just love how blunt and to the point I am? Hehe.) I also started making baby food this week…. Willow won’t be eating it for about 4 months. But I started making, freezing, and vacuum sealing it so she would also have pumpkin, butternut squash, and acorn squash since it won’t be in season when it’s time to start solids.
Diapers: I am so excited to receive my GroVia newborn diapers in the mail! They were having their seconds sale this week and I scored 5 newborn diapers for $9 a piece and I got 2 matching shirts as well. Fluffy mail is the best.
Places She Went: Kingsway Pumpkin Farm and IX Trick or Treat Street.
Other Random Stuff: Willow has reached another mile stone – smiling intentionally. I just love when I smile at her and she smiles back, melts my heart. She also discovered her hands this week and has spent quite a bit of time chewing and sucking on them and as a result hasn’t cared much for her pacifier. I think we may have another thumb sucker in the family. Oh and Willow’s cough is much much better…. we are giving breathing treatments as needed instead of every 4-6 hours. Typically one in the morning and one at night. We go back to see Dr. Tom this week for a follow up and shots.
