Monday marked the beginning of Evy's 4th week - and I'm happy to say I've been learning a lot and we've been building some good routines. Evelyn's a really great baby - not completely stress free but what would be the fun of that?
For one thing, she's a great sleeper. Everyone scared me into thinking I'd be up every two hours feeding, changing diapers or soothing gassy stomachs so we bought a co-sleeper hoping it would cut down on the time and energy during the night. But we realized that Evy slept well in her crib during the day so we tried it at night and it's been great ever since! We put her down around 10pm (since that's when we head to bed) and she sleeps until around 5am and wakes bright and early with us at 7:30-8. Such a relief!
Another relief - no colic! I can make her happy, though sometimes it take some good investigative work :)
She doesn't burp very well - even though I'm sure that's more my fault than hers. We've had a few projectile spit-up incidents - and I feel bad each time.
She likes driving on the freeway - but not on city streets.
Breastfeeding in public is hard, though I just bought a really nifty cover up that I think will make it easier.
She doesn't like her swing as much as I'd hoped - maybe once she gets a bit older.
... Yeah. We're learning stuff every day:)
