Anna's Weekly Update- 2.27.16


And she wasn't happy :)
Weight: 12.3 pounds
Anna had a couple of firsts this week. Her first cold :(, her first fever :(, her first trip to the doctor for something other than a well child check-up :( (thankfully the doctor didn't feel she needed to be admitted to the hospital like they normally do with newborns who have fevers, instead we just kept a close eye on her and when she woke up all stuffed up the next day we knew the fever was connected to the cold her older brothers so graciously gave her).
But amazingly, amidst not feeling well, she also gave us her first smile! :)
Isn't that just the cutest thing!?!
Thankfully her cold isn't too bad and hasn't effected her eating or sleeping at all. And actually I'd say this past week was her least fussy week. She definitely can now focus in on people which might be why she is happier and flashing us cute smiles. She now consistently wakes up only one time a night, between 4 and 5, and then she goes back to sleep till around 8. She also has been going to bed a little earlier, usually between 9:30 and 10pm. So no complaints here in the sleep department. She pretty consistently eats a bottle as soon as she wakes up, is awake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours and then needs a little nap. She continues this routine through the morning and then after her bottle around 1pm she will take a 3-3 1/2 hour nap which is during the time that her brothers also are taking a nap, so I get about an hour and a half of peace and quiet (if I put the twins in separate rooms :)). 

She continues to love laying on the changing pad so we often just put it on the kitchen table

We tried our hardest to keep her brothers away from her as they have colds, but it is just so very hard because they just love her so much

The boys found my old phone and discovered that you can still watch the videos on it, so they have been obsessed with it! And they are all from when Micah was a baby and I talk in the most annoying voice on ALL of them so I am quite sick of the phone! :)

She loves bath time!

We had a couple nice days this week so Anna had another first, her first walk outside in the stroller

Can you see how excited she was about it?! :)

They've gotten to watch a lot of videos as they haven't felt very well and Mommy needed to get some things done

At the doctor, she's deep in thought while sleeping :)

Getting to snuggle with Miss Barb so Mommy could get the house ready to be packed

I love all her expressions

Still not feeling the greatest so getting to just sleep on Mommy, who decided those things that need to get done can wait while we snuggle :)
