What Happened To My Newborn?!?

It is happening. My little girl is growing and growing and growing. I can't believe how big she is getting and how much she is changing everyday. One thing is clear ... my honeymoon with my sleepy newborn is over! MAKE IT SLOW DOWN! I am enjoying every second that I am able to spend with her, but the time is flying by. Wasn't yesterday Halloween?

Kailyn is spending so much more time awake. She is taking in the world around her and it is really amazing to watch. Just tonight, she helped me put up the Christmas tree. No really, she was awake the whole time, and she was mesmerized by the lights. She laid on the ottoman just quietly staring at the tree. Maybe she is going to love Christmas as much as her mommy.

As she wakes up more and more, she cries more and more. It is a hard thing to hear your baby cry. She has been having a lot of gas the past two days. She burps and farts all day long! Sometimes, she cringes as I give her a bottle. My poor girl. It must be so uncomfortable for her and to top it off she has the hiccups. As a new mom, it is tricky to figure out what she needs. If she doesn't need anything, it is tricky to figure out what she likes to calm her down. Kailyn likes a few things. She likes to be held close to her mommy's chest the most. Oh and today, I realized that she likes the noise of the vacuum cleaner. She likes her lambie swing too! At least for a good 10 minutes before she cries.

My little peanut is a sweet little girl. I am feeling sleep deprived, but I am not going to let that stop me from loving her up all day because before you know it...I'll be back at work.

  1. I've read Happiest Baby on the Block and the soothing methods that Dr. Karp provides you with really let you get to know how to calm her best. It got us through weeks 5-9 big time! Kailyn's getting so much bigger and is too cute in her swing.
