27 Weeks

Friday, November 11, 2011

Here we are at week 27 already! This week has flown by super fast. And last night, we had our very first snow of the season... Gia's first snow of her life! So to remember that, I chose this fabric from some that my friend, Katy, sent us. It kind of reminds me of a Charlie Brown snow. :) Gia is feeling better this week... some days she is totally back to her usual self, but some days she's still a bit fussy. She had her 6 month check up yesterday, and the doctor said that her throat was still a little bit red. So maybe that is the problem. We are trying to get better about "parenting" her to sleep, too... for the past 6 months, every time she's cried, I rush right into her room to feed her. That helps all of us get back to sleep faster, but it doesn't help Li'l G learn to soothe herself back to dreamland when she wakes in the middle of the night. So, if she wakes any less than 3 hours in between feedings, we let her cry a little, then try to soothe her by rubbing her back. Its been working ok. She still wakes up between 11-12pm and 2-4 am then again around 7 or 8 am. But I'm thankful its not every 1.5 hours like it has been. We're also working on more nap during the day, too. Today she took a 2 hour nap in the morning! As far as solid foods go, she's still not loving anything but the rice cereal. We've tried sweet potatoes, peas and this week, pears. She's just not a fan. I'm hoping she will continue to eat the rice cereal, though. Whew! What a week!
