Baby Log: Week 6

Saturday, September 26, 2009

new parents at churchI'll call this week, focus on the family (not to be confused with the social conservative organization):
  • Marlie is settling into a routine. I developed a schedule for her that is not time-based, but activity-based. Everything is done in the same order: change diaper, feed, burp, playtime, change diaper, sleep (prefaced by a wipe down or bath in the evening). This is our rotation for now.
  • Marlie is getting more playful and responding to stimuli. I enjoy thinking of different activities for playtime like singing, puppet show, rubbing noses, and peek-a-boo, but tummy time is still her favorite. We are having so much fun together!
  • She started having the famous blowouts (you know how breastfed babies save up their poo and release one big bowel movement?!). Let's just say I really do not enjoy changing huge piles of mustard-colored poo-poo at 2 am.
  • I ordered her costume for Damon's company Halloween party. She is going to be a flower and I am dressing up as a gardener. Cute and Corny! I can't wait!
  • Damon spent some extended quality time alone with her on Wednesday night while I used the concert tickets I won from SheKnows.com to go see P!NK perform live. I pumped for three days so Damon could practice giving her breast milk from a bottle. Girlfriend was not having it! It was touch and go until Tuesday night when I left the house so she couldn't smell me nearby. He read a tip online to run the vacuum and place her in the bouncy chair for her feeding. Sounds crazy, but it worked!
  • She is babbling. She says "gee" a lot, which I suppose is a derivative of "goo-goo." She is also trying to creep. Damon put her on a yoga mat to "give her traction." She proceeded to pee and then sure enough she tried to scoot on her belly. I'll try to upload the video.Marlie and Me
  • Her features are changing and she is looking more like her daddy, although some people say she looks like me. I think this picture of me holding her confirms that she is 80% Damon (she has my feet though, thank goodness!). I posted our baby pictures for comparison. Who do you think she favors?

I can't think right now because I am still laughing that you are thankful that she got YOUR feet and not Damon's.

@ Kim-Not to brag, but she has small feet with beautiful arches like me, my mom and my granny. Damon has big, flat feet like a platypus!

I love the Halloween party costumes! That is going to be just so adorable! I'm sure you will be the queen of the party.

I do think she looks like Damon. Alyssa looked JUST LIKE her dad for a long time, but as the years passed, now she looks sooooooo much more like me! :o) She has her dad's fingernails and toenails LOL and she hates them! So far, everything she has like me (except her menstrual cycle) she likes...LOL LOL LOL

I can't tell who she looks like, but she's so adorable. I can't wait to have a routine like you two have. I'm just going with the flow for now. :)

I think Marlie looks like you in the eyes from the pictures. Oh BTW...the postpartum dementia doesn't end. I still have moments where I forget what I was doing or what I was going to do. Now I have to write everything down. LOL!!! I love reading your posts.
