Georgia, Week One

Georgia is twelve days old today and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect baby! 

Sleeping:  She's a very good sleeper and falls asleep pretty easily.  She wakes up in a pleasant mood, too!  She sleeps for about three hours at a time during the day and wakes up on her own to eat.  At night she sleeps for four hours at a time.  At first, I had to wake her up after four hours to eat, but now she wakes up on her own about every four hours at night. 

Eating:  Feeding times are generally (within about 30 minutes of) 6 am, 9 am, 12 or 1 pm, 3 or 4 pm, 6 pm, 9 pm, 11:30 pm, 3 or 4 am. The times vary a bit depending on when we do her diaper changes (before or after she eats). If she wakes up wanting to look around and not super hungry, we play for a bit before she eats.

Favorite Activities:  Eating, reading books with Daddy, napping on Mommy (we take a morning nap from about 7 to 8:30), looking at her black and white shapes book, photo shoots with Kiki, getting rocked in Nanny's rocker.

Least Favorite:  Diaper changes - she cries until we get the clean diaper on!

Outings:  Her first week we went to the pediatrician, spent the afternoon having Indian Tacos at Aunt Brenda's house, and spent our first Saturday night at Aunt Brenda's so we could tell Kiki goodbye early in the morning.  She did surprisingly well on all the outings!  She doesn't mind being in the car seat at all.
