Growing and Changing...








Addie is doing great! I can't believe this Friday she will be 4 weeks old! Some of her exciting milestones are: She is napping very well in between feedings, and she is sleeping so well at night. Saturday night she slept for 7 hours straight and last night for almost 6. She is such an angel baby. She is adjusting well to the Prep for Parenting schedule we learned when were pregnant. It is a 2.5-3 hour feeding schedule during the day with wake times after each feeding, followed by naps (very similar to Baby Wise). Then at night she sleeps as long as she will on her own. She has already dropped one night time feeding and will hopefully soon be dropping another! Our prep for parenting teacher is most impressed with her progress! This baby girl is so happy and sweet natured. When she wakes at night to feed, she just whimpers and talks to me until I get up to feed her. I had no idea that you could love someone SO MUCH! She is truly amazing! We just love to look at her and admire God's amazing miracle. Here are a couple of recent pictures. :-)

Wow, I've never even heard of those schedules! I must have missed those prenatal classes! Sounds like everything is going great, and she's giving you plenty of rest.

Love all the pics!

Hi! Can you explain how it is different from Babywise? We're following it, but Claire is still up every 5 hours or so for feedings overnight. (She's 9 wks.) Advice??
