18 Weeks!

Well I started this yesterday but didn't have time to finish until today!

18 Weeks - 1.7.14

Sleep: The past week she seemed to settle into a pattern of going to bed at 9:30pm and the waking between 4-6am for a feed. She would then go back down until 9am! It was a great schedule that I wish I could have enjoyed the extra sleep until 9 but going back to work ruined that! And starting this week she goes to daycare so she doesn't get the extra sleep either! We will see how that goes...

Clothing Size: Almost all 6 months and a few 9 month have made their way in as well!

Favorite Toys/Activity: She loves her crunchy block still and also the stroller toys that vibrate! Pretty much any toy you give her though she seems fascinated by! We went on a hike this weekend, and she seemed to really enjoy looking at the trees and flowers!

Milestones: She had her 4 month doctor appointment! She has gone down percentage in weight (now 30th percentile) but is still up there for height (89th percentile!) So we for sure have a long, lean, baby on our hands! She also got her second round of vaccines. She cried when they gave them to her and was fussy for a few hours after but not as bad as the first time! She also went to the beach for the first time. She loved it! I think because we use a sound machine with the waves sound for her to sleep, she liked seeing the real thing! And it put her to sleep after about 15 minutes of walking on the beach :) The beach was also special because it was where we had taken our wedding pictures so we took a picture in the same spot with her! She also had her first New Years Eve! She didn't make it to midnight, but we went into her room and had a toast above her crib!

Highlights from the Week: 
  • First hike with daddy and then hike with mommy and daddy to TO Botanical gardens 
  • First trip to the beach
  • Saw where Mommy and Daddy got married 
  • Had two days at home with just Daddy 
  • First New Year's Eve and New Years 
  • Turned 4 months old! 
  • 4 month doctor appointment and second round of vaccines 

Favorite Mommy Moment: 
Taking her to the beach right across from where we got married and taking a picture in our wedding spot at the beach was probably my favorite! I will cherish that picture! It was also fun to see her look at the ocean and hear the noise she was used to hearing but seeing something in nature and not a box making the noise! I also enjoyed carrying her as we walked along the beach and getting in all my cuddles and the next day was the day I had to go back to work.
