Now that I'm over the baby blues, I've been stepping my game up. I've made a schedule for us and I'm working to keep Isis on it. I'm not being crazy strict or anything, just trying to get her on about an every 3 hour feeding schedule with a consistent bedtime and get-up time. It's going pretty well so far - with the exception of a growth spurt she had the other day when she wanted to eat like every hour or so!! But the rest of the time, it lets me & Isis know what to expect throughout the day. I can also get some stuff done now when she's napping because she's doing a little better at night, so I can sleep a little more and don't have to take like 3 naps during the day. Today I organized her bedroom and her bathroom, did a load of laundry and now I'm blogging! It's very exciting!
She's starting to make these little noises like she's found her voice. She's only made a couple of them, but it's exciting every time! I'm sure within the next week or two she'll be making little oo's and ah's as opposed to just the squeaks she's been making all day and all night so far! She's also growing like a weed!!! We bought a scale & weighed her the other day and she was 8 lbs 10 oz! And only 3 weeks old! (She was 6 lbs 12 oz when she was born.) Also, her umbilical cord stump finally completely came off today! The main part had come off last week, but there was still a little piece left, so we couldn't give her a real bath yet. I was getting a little bored with the sponge baths, so tonight is going to be her first real bath!! I'm going to take pictures and a video because that's very fun!
Overall things are going good here in our third week with Isis! She's super sweet!
