It's been a while since I have given some blog updates here. Claire is doing great! She had her one month birthday 2 weeks ago and she is now 6 weeks old. It's crazy how fast time flies. She is using her eyes a lot more, looking around and is generally a really happy baby. She sleeps really well. She is good at falling asleep if I put her down when I feel like she is getting drowsy. She has a schedule now which is great for me. She goes down for her long stretch between 8:00 pm and 8:30 pm and will sleep until 1:00 am. 5 hours!! Then she is up for a feeding until 2:00 am. Then she sleeps from 2:00 am until 5:30 am or 6:00 am. She is up until 7:00 am and goes back down from 7:00 am until 9:00 am. Then she is up for two hours until 11:00 am and she will sleep from 11:00 am until 12:00 sometimes 12:30. Then she is up from 12:30 until 3:00 and at 3:00 goes down for another nap until 5:00. Then she is up from 5:00 until her bedtime. I feel like that is a pretty good schedule for a six week old. She is so close to smiling. She hasn't yet but I can't wait until she does.
She eats really well. I do formula feed her and she has been growing and doing great with that. She weighs about 11 lbs right now, we have her 2 month checkup in a couple of weeks and I'll post her stats from that appointment and her 2 month update when she turns 2 months. Zack loves being a dad and he is seriously one of the best dads. He is so great at helping out at home with Claire and he loves to take care of her. We are both so lucky to have him.
I have started a job working from home. It's with a group called Response Marketing and I really love it. I can work anytime between 8am and 8pm so I generally get my hours in while Claire is taking her nap. I am truly blessed to have been able to find a job that allows me to work from home. The hardest part is that the nursery is combined with the office since we don't have a separate bedroom, so during nap time she sleeps in the pack n play so I don't disturb her. Usually there is the washer going and the dishwasher so there is noise while she sleeps which helps.
I have more blog posts planned on different topics and hopefully I can get more of a routine going with blogging. I really do love to do it and I hope you enjoy reading it. Thanks so much for reading
