Catching Up with Harper

Good Morning,

Hope you all had a great weekend!!! We got to spend some time with family, watch a good movie, do housework and cuddle our girl!!!!

I thought I would do an update on Harper since this week she turns a month old, can you believe it??? I sure cant!! It has gone by so fast!

Sleeping: For the first two weeks our girl did nothing but sleep during the day and the night. We started with 3-4 hour increments of her sleeping. This has changed though she went through a growth spurt last week and her sleeping changed and she is now on a every two hour eating schedule through the night. Mom and dad haven't adjusted to this schedule yet but hopefully we will soon!!! She is currently sleeping in our room in a sleep sack but we will be transitioning her to the crib soon! Wish us luck!

Eating: This girl is a eater NOW!!! When we first came home Harper had lost some weight so we had to do supplements and breastfeeding. She has since gained back some weight and cant get enough of anything!! Breastfeeding isn't the easiest way to feed a baby that is for sure but I know it is the best gift I can give Harper, so I plan to stick with it till we start cereal and pureed foods.

Baths: We have a baby bath that transitions from a newborn bath that has a sling, she doesn't seem to like that the best but I think that is due to the fact that she is cold, so right now I get into the bath with her and it is a fun little time we have together!

Some of her favorites: Harper loves to be held and cuddled!!!! When we put her down she typically starts to cry which has made housework and daily life a little challenging for mom and dad. Her favorite place to sleep is on our chest. She loves music playing when mom is able to set her down, on comes the music and our little girl is amused.

Some of her dislikes: Being COLD, she screams every time we take her clothes off or change her!! Brr Keep this girl warm!! She also doesn't like to be set down! This means in her bumpo or her bouncy chair. She even fakes us out sometimes and is sleeping in our arms and when we put her in her sleep sack those blue eyes come wide open!!!!

A special THANK YOU to my husband who is a big help when I am tired with Harper girl!! You are the best husband/dad Joe Haluska!!!!
