Look who’s one-quarter of the way to her first birthday!
Here’s a look back at the past three months.
Evelyn’s personality is shining through more and more each day. She gets the biggest smiles in the morning when she sees Trenton and Charlotte. I can’t wait to see her relationship with them evolve.
I often get asked who Evelyn looks like. I really didn’t think that she looked very much like Charlotte. Until I did this…
Yep, they’re definitely related!
And we’ve finally started gaining weight! The formula has done wonders for Evelyn’s weight gain. It hasn’t done anything to help the spitting up, but at least we’re putting on some pounds. Evelyn is still on her reflux meds too. They help neutralize the acid, but don’t help with the amount Evelyn spits up – which is A LOT. We go through a new burp cloth at nearly every feeding. But as long as Evelyn is gaining weight and isn’t too fussy with the spitting up, the doctor wants us to leave things where they are.
Weight: 10 pounds, 11 ounces
Height: Not taken this month
Eating: 4 ounces of formula every 4 hours
Sleeping: Girlfriend is a little alarm clock and wakes up for feedings every four hours, even during the night. I wake her up to feed her around 10:00-10:30 when I go to bed, she wakes up around 2:30 for another bottle, and then again at 6:30. She normally falls back asleep for a nap while I’m taking the big kids to school and stays asleep until it’s time to pick them up. She gets another nap after lunch and then goes down for the night after dinner.
Diapers: Size 1 – We switched from Pampers Swaddlers to Huggies Little Snugglers, and it has helped with Evelyn’s diaper rash. It’s still not totally healed up from last month, but is at least looking a little better.
Clothes: 0-3 months – She probably has 2-4 more weeks in these.
Shoe Size: Still haven’t found any that fit.
First Airplane Ride – March 18th:
First Hospital Visit – March 19th:
First Time in the Bluebonnets – March 25th:
First Time on a Fire Engine – April 4th:
We’re looking forward to another month of fun firsts!
