Baby Milestones

Raise your hand if you've accomplished some major milestones this past week!


Eloise has had quite the week. To include:

*Participating in her first Presidential election:


*Going for walks in the stroller WITHOUT FUSSING! OMG this is a HUGE one and I am oh so thankful. Bring on getting Mama back in shape! We've been doing almost daily two mile walks in the 10-11am window and it's nothing short of a miracle. As you can see, Eloise is quite pleased with herself:


*Rolling over! She did it ONE time on Monday November 1st (at 3.5 months, or 14.5 weeks) and hasn't again, but I'm still going to count it as a first. She has also been rocking tummy time- holding her head up tall and strong for a good 3-5 minutes before getting fussy. Her glow worm toy has been very helpful in that department:

First roll captured on video! As you can see she was really happy about it (haha).

Now raise your hand if you are sleeping through the night!

Nope

Oh wait.....yeah, not so much. Though this week is MUCH better than last week's sleep from hell, where she was up every single hour almost all week long. This week's cadence sees her taking an evening 'nap' from around 8-9:30, nursing and then sleeping until around 1:30-2am, waking again in the 4:30-5:30 range, then getting up for the day around 7am. We are still not getting any sleep cycles much longer than 4 hours max, and because of that there are many afternoons spent like this:


Can't wait to have the sleeping through the night milestone to report! Alas, I fear that one may be awhile down the road....

Until then, we will celebrate every victory we do have.  Now off for a walk!
