I took Norah and Daphne to the doctor today for well-child visits – Norah’s 5 year and Daphne’s 2 month. I thought I was being smart by scheduling them at the same time so I only had to make one trip to the doctor. In the end it was NOT a good idea because both girls needed shots. I’ll start with their stats.
This weekend was the St. Louis Homeschool Expo. I helped Max and Denise at their vendor booth for Foreign Language Friends. We were very busy most of the weekend! Quite a few people seemed very interested in adding Spanish to their curriculum. A number of people said they have been looking around for something that is kid-friendly so they were pleased to find out about FLF. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures of their booth, but I did take a picture of my niece, Contessa (my mom watched Norah, Lucy, and Contessa).
I seriously have the cutest nieces and nephews!! AND, I am going to be an aunt AGAIN!!!! My sil, Denise, is pregnant. She is due the end of October!!! We are so excited and Contessa is going to be a great big sister! She was so great with Daphne this past week (we were in Morton – more on that trip when I am not so tired and when I get pictures from Denise and my dad. I forgot my camera!).
Daphne is 2 months old (yesterday actually)! She is a delightful baby!! She is a great nighttime sleeper – going to bed between 7:30 and 8. Kevin feeds her around 10 and then she sleeps until 4 or 5 a.m. Although I am tired – this is totally manageable!
We are still working on the nap thing. Some days Daphne fall asleep awake without making a peep and sleeps for a couple of hours. Other days – it takes forever and I have to put the paci in over and over!!! I’m sure she will get it sooner or later.
Although she smiles often – she seems to be like Norah, in that she doesn’t give out smiles freely to many people. She hesitates and really makes you work at it!! (Lucy smiled at anyone who looked her direction).
She already loves her big sisters! In fact, on Monday when the Norah and Lucy were at MDO, Daphne was very fussy all day – the first really fussy day we have had. As soon as Norah and Lucy were home, Daphne was happy as a lark. She tries to follow their voices and turns her head to see them. She often gasps in delight when they interact with her.
Daphne still eats about every 3 hours, but is pretty flexible. If we are in the car, she can go a little longer.
She just started batting at toys and reaching for things – cracks me up because you can tell she is REALLY concentrating to move her arms.
Daphne is 8 weeks old tomorrow! She had her picture taken today – she did great!!
