Cecilia-

1 month old yesterday, weight 7 lbs and change (still in premie/newborn diapers)

Social smile really catching on in earnest, starting to be a loud sleeper-grunts, coos, goose noises (all developmentally normal for this age).  Definitely able to regard my face and recognizes my voice.

Sleep:  no sleep til Brooklyn (or at least during the day).  It’s a trade off because our first nighttime sleep generally lasts 5-6 hours, then we get 3 hours after that.  The hour or so before bedtime can get pretty fussy because she’s so tired, but I’ll live with it to get 6 hours of straight sleep at night!

Me:

Weight loss: 16 lbs to go.  Engagement ring back on!

Pumping 6-7 oz at a time.

We walk every night (when it’s not raining), but I’m ready to start couch to 5K.  I just wish that the breast area didn’t hurt so badly when trying to run!

I love this thread!  I think pics should be part of updates too 🙂

Mrs DG – what does this mean? “no sleep til Brooklyn”???

Hey Janna – “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” is from a Beatie Boys song.  Good song.  Now I have it stuck in my head!  This is a good thread.  Yes, pictures would be good.  Babies are so cute and I’m looking forward to when my FI and I can have them.

It’s been a month already?!  Goodness!  Don’t worry mommas, you’re not the only ones for whom time is flying by!  😉 

I love the updates and it’s so good to hear things are going well.  Here’s wishing you two some sleep!

And yes, the reference “No Sleep to Brooklyn” was a reference to the Beastie Boys, which I reference nightly when I wake up!

Mrs. DG- She is adorable! I love all those pics!!!

You have the same swing that we registered for! Do you like it? Does Cecilia?? Did you get anything else in that same system?

I do like the swing.  I would have loved one that plugged in to the wall, but ultimately safety won out and we picked this one with a 5 point safety harness.  This one rated very well for safety, and was on sale at Babies R Us when we were looking for swings.  We didn’t get anything else in the same system.  We actually brought Cecilia to the store and tried out all the swings and this was definitely the one she liked the best!

I will warn you that it was kind of a pain in the a$s to put together, but we got it done!
