Adventures of the Little Bean

The first few days

What we’ve learned so far about Kai (our little baby Bean…I think it’ll be easier to refer to her as such, but for the sake of privacy, I want to note that this isn’t her actual first name):

  • She loves to nurse. She nursed for 5 hours one night!
  • She likes to chirp and gurgle in her sleep. This may mean that she’s having great dreams! She’ll also push her arms out, like she’s flying like Superman.
  • She loves to windmill her arms.
  • She loves looking around – her neck is strong!
  • Changing her diaper right after she pees/poops is way easier than changing it once she’s noticed that something has happened. She’s not happy with dirty diapers.

Here’s a picture of Kai being weighed by the midwife yesterday – as you can see, she hated it. She weighed 6lbs 2oz, so she lost 4 oz. Mrs Bean’s milk has come in, and Kai is done with pooping out the meconium, so I think she’ll be getting bigger and heavier soon.

And here’s a picture of me holding her.  She’s in a half-asleep dream state.
