Maria at 6 weeks

Maria is much more aware when she is awake now.  She had started to smile in response to things that we do, like beep her nose.  She is a good sleeper once she goes down for the night but sometimes it takes a while to settle down in the evening.  She gets up once, occasionally twice and usually gives us at least one 5+ hour stretch at night.  Yeah!  Her older sisters like to hold and entertain her by showing her all the toys.

Mia is 1 month old

Mia’s 1 month checkup is tomorrow so I will update with her official height/weight stats tomorrow. She is eating well and sleeping …. well she is eating well! She is sleeping slightly longer stretches at night, 3-5 hours, once she actually falls asleep. She still fusses and cries at least once a night and doesn’t want to go settle down and go to sleep. Mia shows no interest in a pacifier so hopefully she will find her thumb to suck or learn to settle herself down soon.

Mia is alert during the day for an hour or two at a time now. She is getting good at holding her head up and has even smiled a couple of times. She likes to watch her sisters who like to talk/sing to her and show her all her toys.

Here are a few pictures of Mia, including one of the dreaded tummy time.
