Project BG3: Week 34 – And, She Lunges!

Project BG3: Week 34 – And, She Lunges!

BG3, Project BG3 0

BG3 is all better now after her bout of what I’m now positive was the Roseola virus. No idea how she caught it, either from her daycare or the Easter Egg Hunt event, but either way, I’m glad that’s over with. Remember when I mentioned that second tooth that was starting to sprout? Well, it’s like halfway out right now and sitting proudly next to its predecessor and even though… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 33 – Teething or a Virus?!

Project BG3: Week 33 – Teething or a Virus?!

BG3, Project BG3 0

Well, this was a pretty eventful week in health for BG3. I don’t know whether to chalk it up to teething, a virus, or an allergic reaction, but something’s going on. This weekend BG3 was suffering from major fever woes, although they were only low-grade fevers so I didn’t worry about her having another infection. I figured it was because that one tooth was growing more or that another tooth… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 31 – High Maintenance Kind of Girl

Project BG3: Week 31 – High Maintenance Kind of Girl

BG3, Project BG3 2

In true BG3 fashion, we have learned that this girl does not care for jarred baby food. Nope! She prefers her food pureed at home, fresh and the old-fashioned way. When we first started giving her jarred baby food after stepping it up from the rice puree, I just thought she didn’t like eating anything but the rice puree. I was worried. But, since I use veggies and all for… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 30 – Stranger and Separation Anxiety

Project BG3: Week 30 – Stranger and Separation Anxiety

BG3, Project BG3 4

Oh, the anxiety is strong in this one. You know I talked about how she would cry whenever I leave the room?! Well, it’s gotten more intense lately. If I’m not in her line of sight, she starts to whine and cry. It isn’t nearly as bad when there are others, like her dad or sisters, around her, and they can easily distract her, but once she sees me again,… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 29 – Stiff Legs

Project BG3: Week 29 – Stiff Legs

BG3, Project BG3 2

As I mentioned previously, BG3 has a case of stiff legs and I’m really starting to notice it more and more lately. She moves around just fine and I know there’s nothing wrong, but she’s definitely very tense by nature. She prefers standing as opposed to sitting or laying down and when I try to hold her on the side of my hip like what comes natural, she doesn’t care… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 28 – Mommy’s Finally Home for Good

Project BG3: Week 28 – Mommy’s Finally Home for Good

BG3, Project BG3 4

It was definitely a treat coming home last Friday and knowing that I wouldn’t have to leave BG3 or the rest of my family ever again, at least for extended periods like I’ve been doing. I’m pretty sure BG3 has picked up on that too because she’s been so clingy since I got home and her face brightens up when she looks around and actually sees that I’m there. It’s… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 27 – 6 Months Old!

Project BG3: Week 27 – 6 Months Old!

BG3, Project BG3 4

BG3 had her 6 month check up this week. Sadly, she’s only 14lbs 5oz, which means she’s barely gained a pound in two months. Sigh. The doctor says she’s still in the 25th percentile, and since her height is only in the 5th percentile, it’s not a bad proportion. She’s definitely never going to be the chubby baby that I hoped for, but she seems healthy. She is growing, just… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 26 – And She Sits Up Unassisted!

Project BG3: Week 26 – And She Sits Up Unassisted!

BG3, Project BG3 2

Like I said last week, BG3 has been sitting up without support recently and her back muscles seem to be getting stronger every day. This past week, as long as you put her in the sitting position, she can stay stable like that for a good five minutes or so before getting tired and flopping over. I’ve also noticed that this girl really hates to lay down on her back…. Read more »

Project BG3: Week 25 – Toes Taste SO Good

Project BG3: Week 25 – Toes Taste SO Good

BG3, Project BG3 4

BG3 took her first shot at jarred baby food this week and she is not a fan, lol. We’re going to try to introduce it more and more as the days go by, but it’s funny watching her react to it. She still loves her rice puree, so there’s that. The hubs says her formula intake as been steady, so I’ve come to the conclusion that she likes to make… Read more »
