The Wednesday Weekly - Week 2

How is it Wednesday again already?? We have seriously been living it up with life with two now and sweet Finnley has been a dream!!  

Week 2

This girl is just so chill and while she has her moments of crying they are brief! She's just busy taking it all in and will soon be thoroughly entertained by big sisters antics!!

Eats: we have ourselves an eater! We are formula feeding again with Finnley (oh how I yearn to breastfeed) and my brother gave us about 6 cans of Enfamil formula that seems to be doing the trick.  Girlfriend does spit up some...but I think that is just her; she spits up on the sensitive, regular, and gentlease.  She takes anywhere from 2-4 ounces at a feeding.  We're not as regimented this time around so I am unsure of how many bottles exactly she is consuming, at least 7/8 I'm sure.

Sleeps: not only do we have an eater but baby girl is still a sleeping machine.  She sleeps about 4.5-5 hour stretches at night with a wake up around 3:30 for a bottle!! So far she has been a good napper in many locations and we are trying to not co-sleep with her.  Also since she is so chill she doesn't need to co-sleep so that is super nice too.  She sleeps in her bassinet, crib, on the floor, in the swing, carseat and in our arms.  She also doesn't like to be swaddled so she gets to just hang out! 

Goes: no slowing down for this family of four!! I think it helps when you have a toddler who loves to get out of the house.  We got a membership at our local Zoo/Wildlife Reserve (I snapchatted it @Alifeonthefarm) and I see many more trips to check out the animals.  We also headed up to Seattle for a birthday dinner for my BIL. She also went to the Y for Ellie's gymnastics and swimming lessons.

Loves: we are loving our bassinet, Dr. Browns bottles, paci and of course I am all about my Solly Baby! We also got a double stroller and it is fantastic.  We've used it a couple of times but so far its meeting our needs.

Does:  we have been working on tummy time already and Finnley has pretty good head control and can roll onto her side and switch her head directions.

Of Note: she got her first stuffy nose last night...but it didn't seem to effect her sleep last night. Her umbilical stump fell off on Saturday night so now we get to do real baths!

Mama: I am really enjoying this time with my two girls.  Finnley has such a different personality than Ellie did at this time and she is perfect for me right now.

Sister:  Ellie is the best! She is always wanting to give hugs and kisses to her sister, wants to know where she is and is constantly asking "What Finnley said?" when she makes a noise.  And she still insists that Finnley comes with us wherever we go!  I seriously couldn't be more proud of what a great big sister she is!
