Thursday Update

We've started a nightly routine where about 7:00, Taylor gets a bath, then she gets a little baby massage, then she eats while I read to her, then we try and go to bed on our bassinet on our own. It doesn't always work, but at least it's a routine so maybe someday she'll actually do it. She's doing pretty good sleeping at night, she's up about every 2-3 hours or so, which seems like a lot, but it's an improvement. I value my 3-5 hour stretch I get when Drew does the first feeding after he gets home. It's the part of the day I look forward to when I can have some me time, though I usually spend it catching up a few things and trying to sleep.

We went to the mall yesterday to get out of the house and get some exercise. I feel like it's kind of a catch 22 because the ride in the car usually makes her fall asleep, and then I feel like I should be home sleeping instead of out, but I was really feeling cooped up. We walked up and down the mall a couple of times, and of course she woke up and exploded her diaper. I'll be glad when we run out of these huggies, they leak like crazy! I changed her diaper and clothes in the car (that was an experience) and then came home.

I tried making her 2 month checkup appointment, but they don't have the schedule open that far yet so I have to call back at the end of next week to schedule it. Drew is still trying to find out when he can take his PT test so we can start planning our trip. A little more than a month and we'll be on our way!

One more pic:
It's a pinksplosion! She really is a kidney bean! She always seems to arch one way or another when she's sitting or sleeping, making herself into the shape of a kidney. Silly girl.
She's awake and hungry, so I'm off again!

I love that first picture of Taylor, she's not smiling but you can tell just by looking at her face that she's happy. Love it!
