The Bean Family

Adventures of the Little Bean

We’re having a weird day

with one comment

Hopefully, this isn’t the start of a bunch of new habits, but it probably is. (Mrs Bean just looked over my shoulder and thought that was a pessimistic thought…well, how else should I put it?) Today, the little bean has slept for all of 30 minutes since we got out of bed at 10:30 (it’s 2:45 now). She doesn’t want to sleep, she’s not particularly hungry, and she’s really enjoying looking around. So, I think her days of just eating and sleeping are waning, and her days of being alert and active will start soon. But then again, what do I know? We have Touchpoints on hold at the library, and I will know more once I read it šŸ™‚

Kai is 8lbs 5oz today, so she’s gained nearly 2lbs since her birth. At our 2 week checkup with the midwife, she had to have her head measured twice – our midwife couldn’t believe how much bigger her head was! She gained 1″ in head circumference! So, perhaps she’s not really losing hair, it’s just distributed over a larger surface area…

Kai has been having a problem with snot lately, so the suction bulb has been really handy. We’ve also injected breast milk up her nose using a 1ml syringe (we’re only using about 0.1-0.2ml per nostril) which has also helped with clearing up her nose. Sort of like using a neti pot, except the milk comes out the back of her mouth instead of the other nostril.

  1. luckily, every new habit they get ends after a couple weeks, just as you get used to it! I want to eat that baby up!
