Project BG3: Week 22 – 5 Months and All That Jazz

Project BG3: Week 22 – 5 Months and All That Jazz

BG3, Project BG3 0

I can finally say that BG3 is five months, even though she’s way past 20 weeks. That whole timeline thing is just weird because the months are off, but oh well. Anyways, BG3 is still feeling pretty sick with the runny nose and a serious cough. Poor baby! She’s been extra cranky and pretty exhausted this week. Most of the time she just wants to sleep. She would wake up… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 21 – Feeling Sickie Yet Again

Project BG3: Week 21 – Feeling Sickie Yet Again

BG3, Project BG3 2

I’m so upset that BG3 is sick yet again! I swear I don’t remember the other girls getting sick so easily this early on in the months. BG1 was even born in the winter, and they all were watched over by family friends who watched other kids, so the exposure is basically the same. Yet, BG3 seems prone to catching colds a lot easier than her sisters. I’m not too… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 20 – Teething Sucks Monkey Butt!

Project BG3: Week 20 – Teething Sucks Monkey Butt!

BG3, Project BG3 5

Yes, BG3 is in full teething mode lately. The fussiness was at an all-time high the first half of the week, with nothing being able to truly settle her down. The nights were pretty bad, too. And did I mention the endless drool?! Man, she can soak through bibs in under and hour! We’ve taken to putting her pacifiers and teething toys in the fridge to keep them cool since… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 19 – And Then They Shaved My Head!

Project BG3: Week 19 – And Then They Shaved My Head!

BG3, Project BG3 1

BG3 celebrated her first Christmas by getting her head shaved! Lol. Yeah, it was time to get rid of all that hair and let the new hair grow in. In case you didn’t know, it’s an Asian tradition to shave a baby’s head after a few months to get rid of all that hair they had while in the womb. I discussed in more detail in BG2’s head shaving post,… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 18 – Four Months In

Project BG3: Week 18 – Four Months In

BG3, Project BG3 0

This past week has been good, except for at night. She used to sleep so well at night and all of a sudden, she’s waking up a lot more and crying & screaming. I originally thought it was because we stopped giving her the Zantac, but then I restarted it last night and she was still pretty cranky. Maybe I need to give it more time?! Or give her more,… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 17 – A Bit Calmer on the Home Front

Project BG3: Week 17 – A Bit Calmer on the Home Front

BG3, Project BG3 1

I think I tend to have one breakdown per kid. Last week was that moment for me and BG3. The lack of sleep, feeding problems, and continued fussiness over the last few months just took its toll on me and I had to vent. This week has been much better. Granted, she still has her extreme fussy moments, and they just HAVE to happen from 3-6AM every morning, SIGH, but… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 16 – Fussiness Ensues

BG3, Project BG3 2

Man, this has not been an easy week for anyone. For some reason, BG3 has been extra fussy this week. You wouldn’t know it based on all the pictures I post, but it’s real. I don’t know if it’s her touch of colic reaching its peak, or if the Zantac isn’t working as well anymore (because she’s a little bigger and the dosing is now off) and her acid reflux… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 15 – Stinky Formula

Project BG3: Week 15 – Stinky Formula

BG3, Project BG3 2

So it looks like the new formula we were trying, Similac Sensitive, wasn’t working out like I thought it would. I don’t think I mentioned this much, but for the past 6-8 weeks, she’s been having an issue with her stools. It’s basically borderline diarrhea. It’s not watery, but VERY wet, and she goes like six times a day, which isn’t normal for formula-fed babies. We’re thinking it’s because of… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 14 – Officially 3 Months!

BG3, Project BG3 0

BG3 was feeling much better this week. Her first cold came and passed with some bad days, of course, but overall, it wasn’t too bad. My heart definitely broke for her at times, but she’s a champ and now as feisty as ever. Although, for some reason, she hasn’t been sleeping as well as she has since getting sick. She’s not sick anymore and no stuffy nose or anything, only… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 13 – Baby’s First Cold *tear*

Project BG3: Week 13 – Baby’s First Cold *tear*

BG3, Project BG3 1

Sigh, yep. Poor BG3 is suffering through her first bout of sickness right now. I’m so sad! The poor girl is all congested, red-eyed, sniffly, and cranky. I just hate it when my kids are sick, and it’s even worse when it’s your baby, especially when they’re so young. Breaks my heart! As much as I was hoping she would avoid the sickness this winter, everyone has just been getting… Read more »
