Another late weekly update (and I know I’ve been MIA for a week), but in my defense, last week was quite busy for the Aldridges…it was Bekah and Kyle’s wedding week! Hadley and I headed to UG on Tuesday evening and helped with wedding stuff all week. I’ll try to blog about the wedding festivities later this week… for now I’m just going to stick to the weekly update!
Weight/Length: 17.5ish lbs and 26 inches long, if my measurements are anywhere near correct. ;)
Sleep: No changes…12 or 13 hours at night, and usually a short morning nap (around an hour), and a long afternoon nap (3ish hours).
Feeding: Still nursing every 3ish hours, and getting a fruit puree in the morning (so far, pears, apples, peaches, or bananas) and a veggie puree in the afternoon/evening (so far, peas, sweet potatoes, and avocado). She is loving the solids and has liked everything we’ve introduced so far except bananas…which I plan to try again this week.
Developments: She is getting better and better at sitting up, and does it for several minutes at a time now.
She is also starting to use a “pincher” grasp using just two fingers on some small things instead of just using her whole hands. She is also starting to pass toys from one hand to the other and will reach out and drag toys to herself. I am definitely having to make sure to keep certain things out of her reach!
Firsts This Week: Peas….which she wasn’t sure about at first, but definitely likes now.
Also her first trip out of state, to Pigeon Forge for Heith and Karen’s awesome wedding (photos coming soon!!).
Nicknames: Little Miss, Haddles, Jenks or Jenkins, Chunkster or Chunks, H, Sweet Pea, Sweet Cheeks, Beautiful, Hadley McGee, Sugar, Shug, Honey Bunny, Missy, Shorty (by Pop), Darlin, etc. etc. etc.!
What I’m Thankful For: Being able to be home all week with Hadley to help with wedding stuff. We missed Jon but it was fun to help with all the
many last minute details!
What I’m Looking Forward To: Our week long beach trip with Jon’s family next week…Saturday can’t come soon enough! Looking so forward to some family time and fun in the sun. :)
Next Pediatrician Appointment: July 6th for her 6 month appointment.
Here are some photos from this week!
Hope everyone has a great week!
