People keep asking me if she sleeps through the night. I think that is a strange thing to ask considering she is 4 weeks old and needs to eat every 3-4 hours, and sometimes more. But to answer the question, no she doesn't. I usually put her down around 11 and she'll wake up between 2 and 3. Then she'll sleep again until 6 or 7. That's pretty reasonable for me, only one nighttime feeding. A couple of nights this week she has been up every two hours though. I think she is waking up due to gas and not hunger. She screams and her face gets really red and she pulls her legs up like she is completely miserable. I hate that, I feel so bad for her. I am working on getting my burping technique down so she won't have to be so uncomfortable.
We went yesterday and had some photos taken by a friend of Lisa's at Manassas Battlefield. Despite it being a chilly and windy morning, we had fun and hopefully got some good shots. I will post them once she edits them and sends them to me. She already sent me a couple of preview shots, but I'm going to make you all wait to see them! While we all wait, here are some photos to hold you over:
Aunt Cristina and Baby Audrey
Pretty baby girl..."Stop messing with me!!!"Milk Drunk!That's all for now. Josh goes back to work on Monday and Lauren leaves for Basic Training on Tuesday, so next week will be my first with just Audrey and me. Should be interesting! We have two doctor's appointments, so wish me luck with getting Audrey out and about all on my own! I will give you all updates and let you know that Little A survived the week with me.
Beth, Joshua, Audrey, Dora, Pussycat, and Frank
