Nellie Rose – 7 Weeks

Nellie is 7 weeks old today!

She is..

  • Having more awake periods. And when she’s awake she’s harder to keep from fussing. The bouncy chair that once soothed her for up to an hour now bores her after 30 minutes.
  • Head-holding champion!
  • Chatting and cooing more.
  • MORE GRINS!!!!

I am searching for a part-time job to supplement our income. I am not going back to work full-time. HOORAY! I have an interview tomorrow with the Y, which I worked for about 3 years ago. I’m really hoping to get it. They have a day care and I could bring Nellie along.

This week I’m going to start working on getting Nellie back to her crib. I don’t think it’s going to be a big deal for her.. The transition is more for me than it is for her. I’m so used to having her sleep either in her swing RIGHTNEXTTOME or in her cradle RIGHTNEXTTOME. But with me going back to work I’m going to HAVE to get her into a routine or I’ll be dragging ass.. So, I’m going to try very hard to get her to sleep at night in her crib and keep my sanity and not run in and check on her every two seconds. She’s down for a nap right now in her crib and I’m just now getting to eat, have some coffee and catch up on my blogging.

Enjoy this 7 week video, in which we manage to capture POOPFACE. LIVE. ON CAMERA. SCORE!
