It is hard to believe that little Elizabeth has been around for five weeks. We went to the doctor on Tuesday and she is doing great! She is up to 9.5 lbs - which really does not surprise me because she eats pretty much all the time. She also got a shot - she was really mad but was so cute with the pink camo Band-aid they gave her. The doctor said she had great head control for her age. She can hold up her head really well when she wants to. Elizabeth is quite curious and very much enjoys being held and getting lots of attention. She smiles at people - especially in the morning. It is so fun to tell her "Good Morning" and she looks up at me and starts to grin.
That is opposite from what is happening now at 9:30 pm - she is screaming her little head off. She is really pitiful at night because she falls asleep eating and then cannot figure out where the food went. Elizabeth was born with an excellent set of lungs and she is not afraid to use them. Especially right when I am about to eat dinner. It seems that she can tell right when I am about to eat - she pipes up and scream-fest begins. Not that I am complaining - she is such a good baby during the day when we go to work.
Well things just got done in the dryer and Elizabet needs her Kiddopotamus. This thing is so much easier to wrap her up in than any swaddling blankets. There are three parts and two pieces of Velcro. It seems babies can be super distracted by their hands especially when they are trying to fall asleep so this has been a lifesaver. I have a t-shirt material one and my sister-in-law gave me a fleece on for the winter.
