I cannot believe that Molly will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. It’s weird because these weeks seem to be flying by, but then when I think about labor and being in the hospital it seems like ages ago!
Here’s what’s new with Molly in her sixth week of life…
I want to start off by saying she’s a great baby. I always want her to know that she’s wonderful and we never took her for granted. That said, she’s been a handful lately. The past few weeks she gets really fussy before bed for some reason. She will scream nonstop for two hours before bed while Kevin and I try everything possible to soothe her. I’ve read it’s pretty common in babies to be fussy before bed for no reason. However, last night she was so good! Barely any fussing before bed. So we are hoping that was just a phase she was in. Maybe a growth spurt?
She’s had a few blowout diapers. Luckily all of her blowouts have been while her daddy was holding her. Ha! I’m sure my time will come soon.
She’s starting to develop a little personality. She loves to make serious faces most of the time. (I think that means she’s always thinking! Little smarty pants) So Kevin and I lose our minds when she smiles at us 🙂
I love to dress her up! The first few weeks it was mostly just onesies – that or she was naked. But now that she’s filling out, her clothes fit so much better and look so adorable! I love this little romper that I got for her. It’s precious. Lately, I’ve been thinking about what she’s going to wear for our wedding and I get so excited thinking of how cute she’ll look in her little flower girl dress! Something like THIS DRESS would be so adorable. She’ll be around 7 or 8 months when we tie the knot 🙂 This dress could be really cute too!
You might be able to tell from all the pictures I post of her that Owen is always by her side. He absolutely adores her and that makes my heart happy! If she’s ever in her MomaRoo and starts crying, Owen will run over to her and sit by her until I pick her up. It’s so cute!
What else? Well she sleeping OK these days. Sometimes we will get a 5 hour stretch in the middle of the night. But mostly it’s 3 hour stretches. I’m so grateful for those five hour stretches though.
Overall Kevin and I absolutely love being her parents. I’m always looking forward to things she can do in the future – like hold her head up, sit up on her own, crawl, walk, talk – but then I try to remind myself that when those times come, I’ll look back on today and wish she was this little again. So we both try to stay in the moment at all times and be grateful for the time we have with her today.
Thanks for reading about my little angel and sharing this journey with us. Love you guys!
