Hazel: Three Months Old

Hazel is three months old today! She has her checkup on Monday, but I feel confident she’ll ace it!  She’s eating well, doing great at daycare, and sleeps like a champ.  I think we’ll see some serious growing when they bust out those growth curves!

Things we’ve discovered about Hazel this month:

– She is still super smiley and is happy 90% of the time.
– She really hates a wet and/or poopy diaper.
– She gets HANGRY (sorry, honey- you get that from me!).
– She is an amazing sleeper.  She has been sleeping through the night for the past month.  She goes to bed between 7 and 8, and she doesn’t wake up until after 8am on the weekends (weekdays, I wake her up at 6:10am and feed her so we can get ready for work and daycare).  It’s utterly amazing.
– She loves to sit and stand (obviously with support).
– She coos a lot!
– When she gets cranky (which is rare), she quiets down when Ian sits next to her and starts singing her a song (so adorable to watch!).

It’s hard to believe it, but Hazel is officially two months old today! She had her checkup and did great- she’s growing so well… 80th percentile for height and weight. Good job, little one!

Things we’ve discovered about Hazel this month:

– She smiles ALL the time, especially in response to me or Jon smiling at her and saying hi.
– She loves to wiggle and squirm on her play mat.
– She’s gotten good at holding her head up- she is REALLY strong!
– She coos a lot, and you can sort of have conversations with her.
– She has decided she likes to be swaddled, and now she settles to bed every night with the swaddle.
– She likes to sleep! Most nights she sleeps from 8pm until 5am!
– We are all still completely smitten with her.

Hazel: One Month Old

Our baby girl turned one month old last week.  It’s hard to believe she’s been here that long already!  Her first month sped by pretty quickly thanks in part to the distraction of visiting family and the needs of her two year old brother.

Things we’ve discovered about Hazel this month:

– She has found her smile.  She even sometimes laughs to herself.
– Her face is very expressive and rapidly flits through a number of emotions in a short time span.
– She grunts… a lot. It’s sometimes cute, but mostly just really funny.
– She loves to watch Ian run around the room and play with his toys.
– If she’s overtired or inconsolably upset, she takes well to the swaddle and it quickly calms her; otherwise, you’d better not even say the word swaddle in her presence.
– She hates pacifiers…don’t even try it.
– She’s a champion sleeper- she will sleep through just about anything.
– She does not give up food easily- she tries her best to choke back spit up before it can make it out of her mouth.
– She’s amazing at filling a brand new diaper right after she’s been changed.
– We are all completely smitten with her.
