Monday: Post an intro about your baby

Sophia Evelyn was born on 12/12/12 at 3:51pm. She weighed 6lb 12oz and was 20.5" long. She had low blood sugar issues at birth and needed an IV and got poked a ton over her first couple days of life, but thankfully it quickly fixed itself and she's been a perfectly healthy little girl! We had some BF issues at the beginning, but within the first week she got the hang of it and was finally nursing like a champ.

She has been such a great baby and has her mommy spoiled. I think this means her younger sibling is going to be a little terror, right? She very rarely cries (for me), is a happy baby smiling all the time, and is for the most part a great sleeper. I feel so lucky to be her mommy! :wub:

Tuesday: Post 20 facts about your baby

1. Sophia is the first grandchild on each side and is definitely getting spoiled already.
2. She will be getting her first cousin in August! We'll hopefully be finding out the gender on Wednesday. I'm really hoping it's a girl so they can be BFFs!
3. She absolutely loves my two youngest brothers (age 10 & 14). They can always get a smile out of her.
4. She actually just gave us the first tickle laugh last night. So cute!
5. She is quite the roller, from tummy to back. The first time she did was the day before she turned 2 months.
6. She absolutely loves her paci. It's a life saver!
7. She does great on car rides.
8. She already has quite the personality. I think you all know she loves to stick her tongue out!
9. She has become very observant and will stare at her hands.
10. She also loves to kick her feet and grabbed them once for a brief moment.
11. Every morning as soon as I unswaddle her she immediately reaches her hands up above her head for a big stretch.
12. Mommy is her favorite person in the world. This sometimes makes her daddy sad.
13. She recently noticed her future buddy, Max (our dog), and will watch him if he comes close. I don't think he knows what to think of her yet.
14. She went to her first baby music/story time at the library yesterday and absolutely loved it!
15. She is starting to tolerate tummy time for a little bit, kind of. Definitely better than it was.
16. She's always wanting to sit up in our lap and is getting better head control, but still looks like a bobble head a lot.
17. When she is on her left side, she always puts her right hand up on the side of her head. I wasn't sure why she was doing it at first, but it's really cute.
18. She loves her bouncer but just long enough for me to finish my shower and some days get my teeth brushed.
19. I said yesterday that she's a very happy baby, but when she does get upset she sure knows how to scream! She's got quite the loud screech.
20. And she absolutely loves bath time but hates to have her hair dried.

Is DH doing better now with the whole "Sophia only wants mommy" thing?

You said that you're not sure how long you're going to BF for - but what's your ideal?

Do you find that the parents (Grandparents) have gone a wee bit crazy since the birth of their first grandchild?

Wishinfor2ndblessing April 2nd, 2013 06:39 PM

What's is your favorite nickname for Sophia?

What color do you think she looks best in?

What is your favorite song to sing to Sophia?

When all else fails, what is the one thing that you can always count on to calm Sophia down beside you?

Re: BOTW is Sophia (Cassie.S's sophia lol)
 
man, everyone is coming up with really good questions... i'm gonna have to think of some for you today! haha

Cassie.S April 4th, 2013 09:52 AM

Re: BOTW is Sophia (Cassie.S's sophia lol)
 
What size clothes is she wearing now? Still in 0-3 months, but not for much longer.

Does she still take a bath in her baby tub? Yep, we have this one - http://www.target.com/p/summer-infan...lot=medium_1_7

Where does she sleep for naps/bedtime? Morning and evening naps are usually in my lap, afternoon naps in the carrier or stroller if we go for a walk. At night she sleeps in the pack 'n play.

Does she go to a daycare/babysitter? If so, how does she interact with the other babies? No, I stay home with her. We went to her first baby music/story time on Monday, though, and she loved it! She kept watching all the other babies and smiling.

Does she like a sling? I have a baby k'tan and a baby bjorn. I mostly use the bjorn now. She does great in them.



Is DH doing better now with the whole "Sophia only wants mommy" thing?
Eh, kind of. It still bothers him but I think he's accepted the fact that she's in a mommy stage.

You said that you're not sure how long you're going to BF for - but what's your ideal? Well, before she was born I told myself 6 months, but I'm thinking now closer to a year. We'll see how she does with solids I guess.

Do you find that the parents (Grandparents) have gone a wee bit crazy since the birth of their first grandchild? They've all been surprisingly awesome! No annoying advice unless I ask for it. At least not yet! And they've been very understanding about giving her back to me when she's been away from me for too long and needs comforting.



What's is your favorite nickname for Sophia? Hmm, I have so many! Probably little peanut, since that's what we called her since before we knew she was a girl.

What color do you think she looks best in?
Pink!

What is your favorite song to sing to Sophia? I'm not really a big singer. When I do it's usually some made up song using her name. Actually the one I sing the most is to the tune of gangnam style - heyyyyy pretty baby, oh oh oh oh oh oh Sophia! lol

When all else fails, what is the one thing that you can always count on to calm Sophia down beside you? Paci. Definitely the paci.



What family tradition would you like to establish with Sophia? Hmm, nothing out of the usual standard holiday traditions that I can think of right now.

What to you most look forward to when Sophia gets older? Doing gymnastics with her! I was a competitive gymnast so I really hope she will enjoy it as well so I can live through it again.

What one trait of yours do you hope Sophia does not get? I hope she won't be as shy as I was. I was a terribly shy child.

What is your favorite feature on Sophia? Her hair! I absolutely love it! And I'm excited for it to get longer since it's going to be curly.

What is something that Sophia does that always makes you laugh?
When she sticks her tongue out over and over again. She actually doesn't do it as often as she used to.

What is something that Sophia does that you can't stand? This new thing that just started where she demands I stand to hold her and screams if I sit down. I'll be happy when this phase is over!

Re: BOTW is Sophia (Cassie.S's sophia lol)
 
DO you see traits or things you or DH do in Sophia?

Does Sophia like your choice in music? Does she show any preference in music?

Does she do better with DH now or it still the same?

When do you plan on having Sophia sleep in her crib?

Does Sophia have a certain type of Binki she likes or it any?

Does she have a blankey or stuff animal she likes more than any others?

Does she have a routine or schedule she follows? If so what is it?

What is her bed time?

mlc52811 April 4th, 2013 08:36 PM

Re: BOTW is Sophia (Cassie.S's sophia lol)
 
ugh everyone has asked such good questions... I'm trying to think of some that aren't already covered! Also, I totally sing Gangnam Style for Winnie, too (Hey Winnie baby) haha

What does she currently find the most amusing?

What can you already identify in her personality, if anything?

Does she have any 'favorite' books?

How does she do with Max?

What toy/activity item (play gym, exersaucer, etc) does she seem to like best?

Re: BOTW is Sophia (Cassie.S's sophia lol)
 
Sophia has the best hair accessories - where do you buy them?

How soon do you want to have #2?

Cassie.S April 5th, 2013 07:32 AM

Re: BOTW is Sophia (Cassie.S's sophia lol)
 
DO you see traits or things you or DH do in Sophia? Not really. Although DH sometimes sleeps with his arm up over his head, which she has started doing so I guess that might be from him.

Does Sophia like your choice in music? Does she show any preference in music? I haven't noticed any preference yet, but hopefully she will!

Does she do better with DH now or it still the same? Eh a little bit, but only for short periods of time and then she wants me back.

When do you plan on having Sophia sleep in her crib? I'm not sure. Probably should start the transition soon. I'm just not sure I'm ready for it! haha

Does Sophia have a certain type of Binki she likes or it any? She only likes the NUK ones.

Does she have a blankey or stuff animal she likes more than any others? Not yet.

Does she have a routine or schedule she follows? If so what is it? Not really. We kind of just go day by day. The only thing is she's usually up by 8 and we do a bath or wipe down, change clothes, and come downstairs. Then it just depends on if it's a stay home day or an errands day.

What is her bed time? She stays downstairs with us until we go to bed, so she naps through the evening, but we start the bedtime routine (diaper change, lotion, jammies, swaddle, nurse) at 10:00.



What does she currently find the most amusing? My little brothers doing silly dance moves for her!

What can you already identify in her personality, if anything? She's usually really happy and smiley, so I hope that continues!

Does she have any 'favorite' books? Not yet, although my favorite to read to her is "guess how much I love you".

How does she do with Max? Great! She has just started to notice him and will watch him if he comes close. He really wants to lick her, so I have to keep a close eye on them when she's down on the floor. I have a feeling they'll be best buddies!

What toy/activity item (play gym, exersaucer, etc) does she seem to like best? She does the best with her floor play gym, but I think she's really going to like the exersaucer soon!



Sophia has the best hair accessories - where do you buy them? Etsy! I have a slight Etsy addiction. Although I did make her Easter headband and plan on making a few more.

How soon do you want to have #2? I'd like them to be at least 2 years apart. I think the plan is to start trying sometime in the summer of next year.

Ok, you asked for it!

I actually just took this last week for my sister who bought her this outfit. The first and then last time she wore it. Her belly kept poking out! haha
