Busy Week and Video

O had a busy week. Grandma B was here on Tuesday. Wednesday we had Aunt Suki and Grandma and Grandpa M here for a visit. Aunt Suki and O seemed so happy to finally meet. As they were leaving Aunt Connie arrived, spent the night and was here all day Thursday. Aunt Connie babysat for a few hours so that Daddy and Mommy could have a date... their first time alone together in 3 months! Thank you Aunt Connie! Friday O had a well-baby doctor appointment. She is now officially 11 pounds!!! She is somewhere between 21.5 and 22 inches long. Doctor is pleased with how well O is doing.

O is busy this weekend catching up on her sleep and Mommy and Daddy are trying to catch their breath. It sure was a fun but very busy week. O is getting more and more social everyday. She loves to make eye contact and give little smiles and chuckles. The low tone in her cheeks keeps the smiles as tiny ones, but it is improving. Her social-ness is making going down for naps a bit harder again. But Mommy is managing to coax some long naps out of her. It just takes a bit more effort. O was so tired after her doctor appointment that she took over a 3 hour nap, followed by a 45 minute nap not too much later. She still went to bed early and slept well. She has been taking a 3 am or a 5 am bottle after her 6:30 or 7 pm bedtime bottle. No complaints here! When O is awake she is raring to go! But she tires easily and needs her crib sleep time or else quickly becomes unhappy. And as the saying goes, "if baby is unhappy, everyone is unhappy!"

Here is a new video of O from this week.

What a sweet girl! You can see her "smile" in her eyes and eyebrows too. So expressive.
