Vital stats

So we're six weeks old today. Six weeks is when all the books say we'll be acclimated, adjusted, in a rhythm, etc. Nursing magically gets easier at 6 weeks. Sleeping magically gets more regulated at six weeks. Mothering AND laundry AND cooking AND having a social life all get easier at six weeks.

Okay, whenever you're ready!

I really can't complain. I am getting things more together, nursing is getting better, and I am sorta kinda getting closer to possibly being able to understand this charming creature. Speaking of which, I've compulsively been keeping track for the last several days, and here's the scoop:

Sarah Rochel averages 8 feedings a day, and just under 13 hours of sleep out of every 24 (perky kid!). Her longest stretch of sleep is 5 hours, and her longest awake period has been 3.5 hours. She's 22.8 inches long, or as close as that can be on a squirming kiddo. She likes long walks on the beach and hates manicures (sorry, kiddo). She has blue eyes, strawberry blonde hair, and she's got a mean right hook. As you see in the picture, she can hold her head up a bit when she's on her tummy, but she does NOT like it, not one bit!
