I have decided to undertake a Project 52…of Helen! Here are the first 9 weeks of her life. It’s amazing how much she’s changed already! She’s gone from 6 lb 14 oz to around 12 pounds – that’s almost double her birth weight!
Here are some more random photos of our girly:
Out like a light on daddy’s chest.
Easter Sunday: cousin Susan was so excited to get to “hold” baby Helen.
She looks like a little angel…when she sleeps…
Life is finally starting to settle down into something more of a routine. Sort of.
Helen is much less cranky than she used to be, and is even starting to be able to go 2 hours between feedings. Huzzah! And she sleeps really well at night – she usually sleeps for a 4-5 hour stretch when she first goes down and only wakes up 1-2 more times in the night. But BOY is she squirmy when she wakes up – legs kicking and arms windmilling.
She’s found her fist – she loves to munch on it. And she’s just starting to bat her hands at interesting objects. It’s amazing how fast she’s learning new things.
Until next time!
