Tales From the Crib: Week 3

10 Oct

Hi, Everybody!  Do you like my gnome shirt? Huh? Do ya? My Auntie Amy made it for me. It’s size 3-6 months, but it fits me already.  I’m growing sooo big.  At my check-up on Monday, the doctor weighed me and I was 9lbs. 2 ounces and my head has grown a whole inch in circumference.  I also had my hearing rechecked and passed with perfect scores.  The doctor also told Mommy and Daddy that I should be on a “schedule” and only eat every 3 hours.  Oh, and if I’m hungry before then, Mommy and Daddy should let me “cry it out.”  I was really worried, but Mommy and Daddy pretty much said “screw you”; needless to say Mommy is going to find me a new doctor.

The weather was great this week and that meant I got to take lots of walks outside in my stroller.  We went to Mommy’s work and met all of her coworkers.  I got to sit in on my first meeting with Mommy’s boss, Dr. Pat, and we got to meet the new V.P.  I like helping Mommy and Daddy work.

On Saturday we went to the Pumpkin Patch.  I slept the whole time, but Mommy and Daddy had fun.  Daddy picked out pumpkins, and Mommy got freshly pressed apple cider.  I got to ride in my BabyBjorn for the first time, and it was great!  I can’t wait until I’m big enough to ride the hayrides and pick my own pumpkins!

Milestones:

Sleep: 2-4 hours at a time (yay me!)
Eat: Uh, oh.  It’s been a bad week.  I latched on wrong and hurt Mommy.  I had to drink a bottle of formula and it made me so sicky, so now Mommy is up all night pumping milk for me to drink from a bottle.  She’s still pretty sleepy…
Play: No time for play. Eat. Sleep. Poop.  That’s what I do.
Likes: Walks in my stroller.  Riding in the car.  Snuggling on Mommy’s chest.
Dislikes: Incompetent   doctors.  Nipple blisters. Formula.

Look! More cute pictures of me!
