3 Weeks old

On Tuesday Baines was 3 weeks old. The time has flown by so fast and next week Nicholas goes back to work. Its going to be hard without him to help and hang out with during the day. I've been trying to establish some kind of schedule before he goes back to work but Baines disagrees. She thinks that 1:30 or 2:00am is an acceptable bed time. Honestly I don't understand her, last night I wanted her to sleep by 10 so I tried all the tricks that put her to sleep and nothing worked. She was wide awake and wanted attention. Not that I don't love this face but mommy needs her sleep.

We had her pictures taken last Sunday and I cant wait to see them. She was a little crabby and wasn't making her usual cute faces (of course, because we paid for them). I'm hoping they turn out okay. I want to have as many pictures of her when she's this tiny.

She's already growing up so fast and has out grown her newborn onsies. It was so sad because I had to pack them up. They are only for 5-8 lbs. We think she's a little over 8 lbs now.

Her motor skills are getting better too. She can almost hold her head up. She still doesn't have control but she's very strong. Nicholas taught her how to look side to side. She sleep in between us so now she keeps looking back and forth, from me to Nicholas. She also is grabbing her toys better. She loves the crochet monkey rattle that my parents gave her. She grabs its arm and holds on tight.

  1. Isn't it insane how those first few weeks fly by? Don't worry too much about a schedule, you guys will adapt to each other. Have you tried napping when she naps? I know it is so tough at first.
    As she gets a little older, she will adjust more. Motherhood is patience greatest teacher. xoxoo
