Life through Claire’s Eyes: Month 1 – 2

June 4, 2013

The highlight this month, probably for Mom more than me, is that I got a break from the breastaurant,  and had what I’ll call “take out” instead (pumped breastmilk from a bottle, that Dad gave me). It’s different than the breastaurant, but I still like it. Milk is milk and they call me a milkaholic, so how can I be picky? I think Mom likes it because she gets a break once a day to go throw the frisbee or run errands. Otherwise my feeding is still pretty steady, every one to two hours. I enjoy consistency.

In sleeping news, my schedule is still more eating than sleeping. Mom and Dad have found a way to get me to sleep during the day. It’s not the traditional stroller, it’s almost never the swing, and it’s definitely not the car seat; that thing makes me scream. It’s the Beco carrier. That thing is irresistible. I can sometimes sleep for two hours or more in there!

In other news, by around five weeks, I started holding my head up pretty consistently. At around the same time, I realized that smiling is another exciting thing to do, though you may be surprised at what amuses me. The blinds, the warning label in my stroller, the fish on my swing… I find many things amusing, but rarely Mom or Dad, much to their disappointment. I guess it’s because I’m looking at them constantly, and there’s nothing new to see. Oh, and I’ve started losing a lot of my hair. Now my hairline resembles my Dad’s. I hope that changes in time. We’ll see.

Oma, you're nearly 100 years older than me? OK, maybe you could teach me a thing or two.

I don't want to miss a thing so I sleep with one eye open. Either that, or my eyeballs are too big for my eyelids.

Visiting at Mommy's work is terribly exciting. We stopped coming here when I made my move on April 1st.
