Caroline was born weighing 7 pounds 13 ounces and she now weighs 10 whole pounds. What a chunk.
She loves eating. Just take a look at her adorable cheeks. However we have found that she is sensitive to dairy and onions--so I am eating pretty bland stuff.
She loves bath time. Love is probably an underestimation. It's probably one of her favorite things and starting this week she stopped screaming once we took her out of the tub. She now enjoys getting all lotioned up and new clothes on. We are looking forward to taking her to the pool since she has 4 bathing suits and loves to splash!
Going along with loving bath time...water is the trick to get her to run down. Listening to the washing machine, the dishwasher, or water coming out of the faucet calms her right down (or she takes it as a challenge to scream louder than the noise if she is really mad) and often with a little walking around, puts her right to sleep.
Everyday we go on lots of walks, whether it is around the living room (I think we are wearing down a track), the kitchen, up and down the stairs, or outside. She loves being outside and is one thing that can instantly calm her down or make her super happy.
Caroline only wore newborn sizes for about three weeks. We were told to not buy any newborn outfits at all but honestly it was super nice to have clothes that actually fit her. We just washed the same little onesies over and over again. Now she is in 0-3 month clothes and hopefully she will be for a little bit longer.
Legs. Let's talk about her legs. When she eats they are straight out and when she sleeps...same again, straight out. It makes for some interesting wrapping and swaddling with blankets.
There is a love/hate relationship with the car. Caroline loves it when we are moving, but when we are sitting in Miami traffic, forget it. At first she would take binkies and calm down but now she honestly spits them out so far there are probably one or two lost in our car. So far the only thing that calms her down in the car is Bruno Mars--so we have a Bruno playlist just in case.
Little lady loves daddy time. I love when Ben comes home because for a little bit of time he is able to play and talk with her. They are so cute together and I love just watching them. He has a way of just being able to calm her down so quickly and get all the smiles out of her.
Sleeping. Sleeping. Sleeping. All in all she does fabulously and I am adjusting to getting less sleep as well as interrupted sleep. Usually she only wakes up twice during the night. Usually around 2 am and then 6 am. We try and stuff her before bed time so we can have some time together at night and with the hopes that she will just sleep soundly for a big chunk of time.
We love our little Caroline!
