Oops, I'm a little late!

Winnie was born December 10th at 6:48 PM. 7 lbs 10 oz and 21 inches long! It was a very easy, uneventful labor! She has been low key and easy going from the start. She's super mellow but likes to shout, and she's got quite the set of lungs! We EBF and even though we had a rocky start (small mouth, lethargic baby), she's a great nurser now! She's a big gal, now. Almost 17 pounds! Overall, we got very lucky with little Winifred! Easy as pie.

Here are her 20 facts!
1. Winnie's full name is Winifred Lucille Cole

2. Winifred is my husband's great aunt's name, and Lucille is my middle name (and my great grandmother's name)

3. Winnie's favorite toys are the Jumparoo and Johnny Jump Up. Basically, she loves to jump.

4. Her favorite non active toys are her dolly and Sophie the giraffe.

5. She is obsessed with our two cats, Miss Kitty and Bill. She grins and jabbers away at them. They remain indifferent.

6. We started off with disposables but now we are doing cloth 100% of the time, and she seems to like it (as if she REALLY has a big preference... haha!)

7. She has been sleeping in her crib full time for about a month now, and she's generally pretty great in there. We still have our occasional rough night.

8. Winnie somehow ended up with red hair, and we really don't know where it came from.

9. She is also very tall with long legs (so far), and we also don't know where that really came from, as my husband and I are quite short.

10. Some of Winnie's favorite songs are Uptown Girl by Billy Joel, Cameo Lover by Kimbra, and anything by Frankie Valli.

11. Speaking of Frankie Valli, the song Big Girls Don't Cry can- without fail -stop Winnie from crying. It's crazy. We can even just sing it to her and she stops. The lyrics must really speak to her.

12. The whole time I was in labor, I kept saying "I hope she comes before Arby's closes!" Embarrassing, right? I really wanted Arby's.

13. She WAS born before Arby's closed, and I got my Arby's, but unfortunately I felt so sick from a shot I was given, I could only eat about 3 bites. C'est la vie.

14. I think Winnie must have some predisposition to loving sweets. I never craved sugary things until I got pregnant, and that's all I wanted during pregnancy and all I seem to want now. Sugar sugar sugar.

15. She is the main reason we ended up buying our wonderful house! We really didn't want to bring a baby home to a noisy apartment (with seriously gross neighbors) and we ended up with an amazing house with a mortgage less than our previous rent.

16. Winnie apparently doesn't like too much red. My brother was wearing a lot of red one day (for some reason...) and Winnie just wasn't having it. Tears galore. She's like a bull, but instead of triggering anger, red triggers woe.

17. Our most used baby items so far that have already been retired are the bouncer and the play gym. Until next time, faithful friends.

18. I knew I was having a girl the moment I found out I was pregnant. I just had an intensely strong feeling that we were having a 'she'! And I thought I wanted all boys. Silly me.

19. Even though I didn't want to dress her in too much pink, I can't help it. Little girls just look so cute in pink. Pink everything.

20. She is quite the problem solver and kind of scares me with her motor skills. She's already working on her pincer grasp. I think we'll have our hands full as soon as she's crawling...

Winnie's arrival!

So in love.

First family photo!

Skin on skin time! I forgot how jaundiced she was!

This is still one of our all time favorite photos.

Snoozin'

more snoozin'.

Sleeping beauty!

Sweetest nap ever.

Trying out her new wig (she was self conscious about how bald she was)

Ahhhh! I love her.



Winnie and her BFF, Bill

One of her first photographed smirks





Sup?









First dance

First belly laugh

Easter date.



Me and mine.





This smile and this too-small hat.





She's sooo huge for the Boppy now.

Has she developed a schedule or a routine?: Sort of... mostly with her naps. She naps every hour and a half or so, and usually falls asleep around 9:30 and we put her to bed around 10.

Is Winnie BF or FF?: She is EBF and has never used a bottle, actually. Missed that boat! haha

How often does she eat?: Oh, she loves her food. She eats probably every hour and a half, but sometimes she'll go for a long stretch of maybe two and a half hours if I need her to.

Has she had solids yet? If so What was her first and what has she had?: I've let her taste a banana twice. She hasn't swallowed any yet, but she seems to like tasting!

What big milestones has she achieved?: She can roll both ways now, stand with assistance, belly laugh, 'talks' to us

Is she content to play on her own or does she seek attention?: Oh boy... she's a busy one. I think she WOULD be content to play alone if she could get where she wanted to go, but she wants to be moving moving moving and she can't yet. I'm pretty much her taxi.

Does she sleep in a crib or where?: Yep, sleeping in the crib!

How long does she sleep at night?: About 10 hours on an average night.

Does she like to watch TV? Favor any show or movie?: Haha she used to like the tv a lot more than she does now, but she has better things to do I guess. She used to love General Hospital (oops)

Does she like a certain type of music?: She likes 'oldies' and anything with horns, a la Stevie Wonder haha

Does she laugh out loud?: She does! It's hard to get a real belly laugh out of her because she's stingy with her laughs, but she gives us huge grins and giggles daily.

She is so cute! Her serious face even makes me smile lol i think you pretty much covered everything possible to ask.

What kind of car seat does she use and does she like it?
do you have any "vacations" planned this summer.
Has she been swimming or will you wait until she is older
