Happy Four Weeks/One Month,Sophia!

November has moved at break neck speed. I keep meaning to sit down and gather my thoughts, but, before I realized it, three or four weeks had slipped right on by! Sophia is, at the time of writing this, 8 weeks old, and just days away from her 2 month birthday. It is taking some major brain power to recollect the details, but I'm doing my best, because it was a special month.

Clothes: Sophia still wears size one diapers and newborn clothes. She is definitely bigger than Grace was at this point, but is still teeny tiny!

Food: Sophia is still nursing for 30 minutes every 3 hours, from 7 am until 10 pm, nursing one to two times at night. I've really struggled with getting her start time for the day cemented, but that is my own fault, I'm just lazy and want to sleep in if Grace and Sophia are still sleeping! I know that it is really important for helping her figure out sleep cycles though, so I'll work on getting up and moving earlier!

Sleep: Her sleep has not been that great. She takes a long time to settle down most days for her naps, but when we hit three weeks old, she began to improve and we really turned a corner with her night sleep.
And, just because I am committed to keeping it real...

*She is still very gassy but as long as she gets her medicine with every. single. meal. she does a little better.
*She started spitting up (very little) around 3 and a half weeks.
*Sophia started making eye contact alot more during this past week!
*Photographing her is HARD. Her cheeks are so giant that it scrunches everything up when she is laying down. Plus, the lighting in my house is very "cool" colored, and it makes it feel overcast when it is not! I need to just get outside with her more and take pictures.
