Mr Christian's Blogspot

I didn't have Mr Christian as a teacher at Prairie, but lots of people did! Including one of the gals from my playgroup. She followed him on the blog above, I thought some of you might like to read about what happened.

Rainy Days

I'm making applesauce today. It's a good day for it, rainy and chilly outside, warm and busy inside. Mom and Dad left super early this morning to drive to Burns, OR to take care of some family business. They're going to make the roundtrip in one day, yikes....that about 12hrs of driving. George left at 8am for school/work, so Norah and I are home alone today. Which is fine, and fun, but she didn't nap very long this morning, so now she's been out for about an hour and I'm hoping for a little longer so I can get a few more things done :)
As for the applesauce, this is the first year I've made it. All the apples are from our trees and it's really not difficult, just time consuming. Oh and it's yummy! No sugar added so Norah will be able to eat it in a few months.

Two Months

This has been the order of the day so far: eat, stare at mommy for half an hour, sleep for three hours, repeat....with diaper changes in there somewhere, shots make you sleepy!

Norah is now two months old! She had her doctors appointment yesterday morning and everything is looking good. She has gained 3lbs since her two week appt, now weighing in at 10lbs 14oz which bumped her from the 27th % to 52% for weight. She's gained 1.5" now at 23 inches long which bumped her from 50th% to 76th% for height. She is cooing/talking a lot, smiling, rolling from tummy to back, wiggling arms and legs like a pro, and she's just started arching her back when she's really mad (not so fun!). Although I'm scared to even say it....she's sleeping very well at night and has been for the last 3-4weeks. Since she's growing so well the doc said it's fine to let her sleep as long as she wants. So far she hasn't slept longer then George or I would want to so we usually just get up when she wakes in the morning. She's still sleeping in her bassenet in our room. I'm not sure when we will switch her to her crib, but probably some time in the next few weeks.
From Saturday, Halloween party with our playgroup.
From Sunday dinner with Nana, Norah has a monkey costume for halloween!

8 weeks

Norah is 8 weeks as of yesterday! She has started to smile for real this last week which is just too cute :) She is also 'talking' a lot more, and she really likes her mobile in the crib. Her two month appointment is on Monday so we will find out just how much she has grown. I can sure tell she's gaining weight!

Six weeks

Norah is six weeks old! I got a playmat/activity thing for her at the cosignment sale last weekend. She really seems to like it, wiggles and 'talks' and stares at the different animals
We also do tummy time several times a day now. She doesn't seem to mind doing it, but when she gets tired of it she will roll over, or fall asleep :)
Tiny feet! It's been getting a little cool here so she's been wearing socks and warm outfits,
super cute!

Norah is still in most of her newborn size clothes, although we have been able to use a few of the smaller 0-3 month things now. We weighted her yesterday and she's just at 10lbs now! Wow grow baby grow! A lot of her baby acne has cleared up already too. Nursing is getting easier, I'm still having to pump sometimes, mostly because of too much supply :) As for sleep, well, I don't want to jinx I'll just say, for now it's going well. We haven't noticed any extreme hair loss yet and it's fun to give her a bath and wash all that hair! Oh and so far her eyes are still blue with a little lighter gold color around the pupil, like mommy!
