Lillian's Journal: Week 4

Vital Stats

  • 10/5/06: 7 pounds, 3 ounces
  • 10/9/06: 7 pounds, 10 ounces

She regained her birth weight after a week of being fed mostly formula.
Starting to eat more formula and nursing less and less.
Smiles when we talk to her in happy soothing voices after she eats.
She’s cooing and making other vowel sounds. Will mimic our sounds and she’ll watch our mouths intently when we talk. If we stick out our tongues at her, she will copy us.
Taking decent naps finally.
We discovered the “magic position” to calm her is to cradle her in a nursing position and she’ll root her face in the crook of our arms. Instantly makes her close her eyes and relax.
She likes to feel our skin against her face and hands.
