She is getting better in the Bumbo seat. She slept until 9:00 this morning, so there was a point where I was awake and the two of them were sleeping, which hardly ever happens. She has been kind of a pill ever since.
Boy she looks like Anthony to me. She is looking up at Mike in the middle picture. We went to Mike's mom's house for her birthday on Saturday, so happy birthday! My dad and Mike's mom are one day apart and their wedding anniversaries are one day apart, too. There's your trivia for the day!
For the record, Maria is sleeping pretty badly. I mean, it's probably not bad for a 3.5 month old breastfed baby, but it's worse than it was. She goes to sleep early, around 7:00 and sleeps until 12:30 or 1:00 and then eats and goes back til 4:30 or 5:00 and then eats and then goes back until around 7:00 or 7:30. This is great but man - it makes it hard for me to get like 4 hours in a row or something. I am hoping she starts stretching it out again until 2:00 or 3:00 and then I could go to sleep by 9:30 or so and get maybe four, or five hours. Soon, I hope. She is napping well, she has been down this morning for an hour already and yesterday her morning nap was 2.5 hours!
My Aunt Eleanor sent this for Maria after she was born and I've been eagerly awaiting the time when it would be big enough for her - it is so beautiful. It's super soft and it has a jacket but it was too warm for her to wear it yesterday.
With Mike, at lunch. She's so sleepy! She's been great about napping but today she is kind of refusing it. My mom babysat last night and she woke up SCREAMING but only for a few minutes. I brag and brag about how she goes to bed before 7:00 and sleeps for hours and hours and then she makes a big liar out of me.
Today is my Dad's birthday, so happy birthday Grandpa, from Maria (and us too)!
I don't know if she's just not big enough for it yet or what but she doesn't seem crazy about her new chair. I hope she starts to like it though because she is bored of sitting around in the swing or the bouncy seat.
Maria is having a rough week. She is waking up three times a night instead of once. She doesn't want to nurse at all during the day, so I guess she is up at night to eat. Last night she was only up at 12:30 to eat, then up at 2:30 but went back to sleep until 6:30 or so. The two nights before she was up at around 11, 2, and 5. She also is SUPER grumpy before she goes to sleep. She still looks cute in pictures, though!
I am posting all of these because when I took one I thought she looked a lot like Mike, but now I don't see it. She is doing well, but she is spitting up a LOT and she was up TWICE to eat last night, at 1:20 and 4:40. But she's already napped one time in her crib today and I am hoping for one more.
Marita got Maria this outfit - it's funny, their names are similar and I call her Marita 10 times a day. I should have just named her that! Anyway, it's 3-6 months and she's just in it now. It's ADORABLE and has my favorite color combination for Maria, pink and brown.
