(Thank you reflux for this memory. You're more than welcome to go away at anytime. Sooner rather than later, please.)
Stats: This month Avery is 23 inches long and 11lbs. She also got her first round of shots. I sat that appointment out. After the heel stick episode, I'm done with shots. Jacob can do those appointments.
Milestones: Avery smiles at everyone...and it's not gas! She's gotten very intentional with her crying. She has 3 distinct cries (hunger, boredom, and diaper changes). We're still working on holding our own head up though.
Behavior: Avery still loves to watch momma and dada! We've found that if she's fussy, she'll calm down by us walking her around. She loves to be outside and we've started taking nightly walks with her around the neighborhood.
Sleep: We're sleeping through the night! Sweeeeeet! Avery starts her bedtime routine around 8:30 and she's asleep by 9:15. She'll wake up around 5:30-6 for a bottle and then will sleep again until 9ish.
Clothes: I packed away most of her newborn things. The only newborn items she can still fit into are her college onesies...go figure. She's in 3 month clothing for everything else.
Likes: Bath time, car rides, being held upright, her crib, and Ellie.
Dislikes: Tummy time (occasionally), laying down too much (I think it's because of the reflux). It's hard to find things she doesn't like...she's a really happy baby!
Favorite Moments: Spending my first Mother's Day at church with Avery, seeing her first intentional smile, sleeping through the night for the first time, and lots and lots of shopping!
Most Challenging: Reflux is still an issue. We still go through a few outfits a day because of the spit-up. I made another appointment for a follow up with her pediatrician to talk about what else we can do to help. Avery has started to refuse to take some of her bottles.....and it's because of the reflux. I would refuse to eat too if everything came back up with acid. :( Poor baby.
