Somehow a whole three months has passed since my tiny girl was born. I don’t know where the time goes but I wish it would slow down so we could enjoy her as a baby for as long as possible. Not a great deal has happened over the last few weeks but I couldn’t not do an update, so here we are.
I guess on a day-to-day basis I don’t really notice a difference in how Ayala looks but when I look at photos of her from last month, it barely looks like the same baby. She’s chubbier, rounder, squishier and all round more adorable. Her eyes still fluctuate between blue, grey and brown. Her hair is still a weird shade that no one can identify.
On a typical day, Ayala wakes at 7:30am, feeds every 3 hours and goes to bed at midnight. She has a few 2 hour naps throughout the day but she spends much more of the day awake now.
Birth weight: 6lb 2oz
20th February: 10lb 6oz
8th March: 11lb 13oz (I weighed her with her clothes on so totally inaccurate measurement but I just wanted to check she was gaining weight).
13th March: 11lb 6oz
She sort of, almost fits into 0-3 month sized clothes. She can stretch to fit the up to 12lb kind, not so much with the up to 14.5lb ones.
Ayala had her first jabs this month. She was a little trooper but I cried buckets. Other than that, nothing to report health-wise.
Our greedy little girl drains her 5oz bottles every few hours. We did put her up to 6oz for a week or so while she was going through a growth spurt at around 11 weeks, but she’s back down to 5oz for now. I’m sure it won’t be long until she’s back up to bigger feeds.
She stills loves being in water, loud music and the taste of Infacol and Calpol. She likes to watch herself in the mirror and babble. She enjoys touching different textures and being sang to.
Lifts her head for up to 20 seconds (she started doing this the day after the health visitor came and noted down that she couldn’t do it)
Smiles at everyone
‘Talks’ to herself in the mirror
Chews her fists (a lot)
Focuses on toys
Shoves her hand down her throat and chokes *eyeroll*
This is just a list of the stuff I don’t want to forget in the future:
Baby Sensory classes
Her first World Book Day
