The First Six Weeks

I never thought I would be this mom but it appears that I may be. I am about to write an entire post about my child. My mom always told me "just wait till you're a mom". I guess she was right because I'm doing and feeling things I never thought I would.

Sydney is 6 weeks old today. Some days it feels like I've had her for months and others it feels like I just brought her home yesterday. But overall we are getting into somewhat of a routine that allows me to get a few things done throughout the day. Today I cleaned out Jeremy's closet, which is a whole other post in and of itself, though.

She is still wearing Newborn diapers and clothes. Both of which I thought she would have outgrown by 4 weeks. She does however, actually fit into them now. She has had her first cold, which lasted about 11 days. She was miserable, as was I. It was so frustrating to be unable to do anything to make her feel better. She no longer screams through her baths, which gives me hope that she may actually begin to like them in the not too distant future(we're going to get her some bath toys for Christmas).

We are up to 4 1/2 hours between her last feeding of the night and the first middle of the night feeding. I never thought I would be so excited about 4 1/2 hours of sleep!! She has also started holding her head up on her own. She also gives us half of a smile; I can't wait till she gets the whole thing down.
Here's hoping I have something more interesting to write about in my next post.

Well, here goes... I'm finally starting a blog, thanks to a friend of mine. She's been on me since she found out I was expecting, to start a blog. I guess she finally got tired of my excuses because she set this blog up for me as a welcome home present right after Sydney was born.

I must warn you I am not an eloquent writer nor do I have many interesting things to say. But my sister assures me that because I now have a baby I will be able to get away with only writing a few sentences and then posting pictures. So, I am going to become a member of this blogging world that I have thus far only been a reader in. I can not promise regular updates but I will try my best.
