Project BG3: Week 14 – Officially 3 Months!

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 »

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 »

Project BG3: Week 12 – Man, That Hand Tastes GOOOOOODDDD!!!!

Project BG3: Week 12 – Man, That Hand Tastes GOOOOOODDDD!!!!

BG3, Project BG3 2

BG3 is laughing more and more. We’re slowly discovering all her ticklish spots and so far, it’s the right side of the neck and her feet. I love making her laugh, it’s the sweetest sound! It’s also pretty funny because her feet and neck are a bit sweaty at the end of the day, so they definitely don’t smell the best, but we can’t help but try look past all… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 11 – Baby’s First Halloween & Birthday Party

BG3, Project BG3 2

This is been one heck of a week for all of us. Daylights Savings Time is over, and BG3 is trying to adjust, so we’ve had some off-kilter schedules when it came to her sleeping. She’s still sleeping like a champ at night, either stirring a bit or having me wake her up for a feeing every 3-4 hours, but she’s been waking up around 6AM, thinking it’s 7AM. This… Read more »

BG3 has been a bit cranky this week, waking up at 6AM. Poor hubby! She’ll take a morning nap around 9AM, but not for long. When I’m watching her, I notice that if she’s not being held or constantly put back to sleep, she’ll end up waking up and staying cranky. Wondering if this will continue. She’s still sticking to an average of 18oz a day with her intake. Just… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 9 – Gotta Love Those Stretches

So the baby is now officially two months old. She’s staying steady at almost 12 lbs. We went to the doctor on Monday and she was 11lbs 14oz. It’s not exactly where I was hoping she’d be, but she’s sitting in the 75th percentile for weight, and at least she’s gaining, so there’s that. He was worried that she might not be getting enough vitamin D, considering she’s only taking… Read more »

Yes, we’re just about at that two month mark. Time is flying by! She can definitely be quite the difficult baby most of the time, with the frustrations regarding her feeding, her inability to nap for more than 45-60 minutes, and her constant crying unless she’s held. Yet, whenever I look at her or see her smile, I can’t help but love her. I may not like her at times,… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 7 – Loving Those Smiles & Coos

BG3, Project BG3 1

Things have been a little better this week. I think we’re finally getting into a groove and BG3 is settling into life and all that jazz. She’s definitely more alert and awake, but still sleeps a lot and I can tell she needs it. She’s not much of a long napper during the day, most likely because of her reflux, but she sleeps pretty well at night. I was a… Read more »

Things aren’t that much different this week. The Zantac seems to be working in keeping the acid from hurting BG3, but we’re still not seeing any changes in her intake, which worries me the most. I can see this is going to be her thing that I stress over. We actually went to get a milk scan done today to see how bad the reflux is and I’m hoping it’ll… Read more »

Project BG3: Week 5 – Acid Reflux It Is

BG3, Project BG3 0

We’re definitely moving along because BG3 is already 5 weeks old! On the one hand, I want her to get bigger so there’s less for me to worry about and we can get to the fun parts, but on the other hand I want her to stay young and little so I can soak it all in because this is my last baby! I know, I keep saying it, but… Read more »
