Quick Zora update

  • her eyebrows and eyelashes are growing in, but her hair is falling out in spots
  • her poop frequency went from 1-2 a day until last Wednesday, to a 4 day stretch, and now on day 2 of no poops.  She isn’t constipated and it is normal poop, but boy oh boy is it a lot when she does grace us with a poopy diaper.  lol.
  • if you put her on her stomach, she has the neck strength to lift her head and face the other direction, but still pretty bobble-head like. 
  • if she can get some leverage, she can flip herself over, although she seems pretty surprised by it.
  • she is smiling, but still mostly in her sleep or in that ‘twilight’ stage.
  • she goes from content to completely ticked off in an instant.  Oh, boy does she have a temper!
  • she is having problems with handling my let-down during that first nursing session in the morning.  I have learned to keep a diaper on her like a bib so that when she unlatches she doesn’t get soaked.  So weird for me…Zane never had a problem with that. 
  • she does not like being still.  Must always be touching somebody and in motion to some degree to be happy.  It is a good thing I am a natural wiggler because it would be stressful for somebody who actually sits still.  She will not sleep at all unless she is in somebody’s arms.  Even in bed I have to wiggle my leg or rock to have a chance of keeping her asleep.

    I read your blog but usually do not comment. But I wanted to say Zora is so cute and I am glad nursing is going good. Congratulations

    I spent the first 6 months of Zep’s life propped up, with my arm under his little body, so I could gently bounce, bounce, bounce him to sleep…every single night.  Drove me crazy at the time, but I miss it so much now.  He was just like Zora, always needing to move.

    We have been sick for a long time here, that is why I haven’t called.  I think we will be better by the weekend and I will come over soon. :)

  • Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better? — Jane Nelson
