2 weeks and snow

Emmy is 2 weeks old today!

Sleep: Emmy fell into a good sleep routine last Sunday and it has stayed consistent for the past week!  I feed her at 10 and put her to bed and then I get right in bed!  She sleeps until 1ish and then eats again.  I put her back down and then she eats again at 4ish and goes back down.  I go back to sleep until Jason's alarm goes off at 6 and I get up and get ready for the day.  Bryce comes and gets in the bed with Jason at some point and watches cartoons and then I'm ready for the day by the time Jason leaves for work at 6:45 and then Emmy gets up around 7 to eat again.  Hopefully her 3 hour eating stretches will get longer at night, but I can't complain right now, especially since she usually goes right back to sleep after eating.  If she does wake up between feedings, Jason takes that shift.

Awake: Emmy has started to be awake more times during the day and for longer periods.  She is usually fairly happy when she is awake unless she gets tired and then she gets mad.  It's pretty easy to calm her and to get her to sleep!

Eating: Emmy could go a long time during the day without eating, but I'm still waking her to make sure she eats every 3 hours.  She doesn't have a problem remembering to wake up every 3 hours at night!  Part of me wants me to let her set the eating schedule during the day, but I want to make sure she is getting plenty to eat so she doesn't want to eat even more often at night!  Emmy hasn't really taken to a paci (Bryce just threw his away last week).  Some days she will take it for a short time, but doesn't keep it.  It looks as though she may be a thumb sucker!

We got our first snow of the year yesterday!  Bryce spent the night at MeMa and PaPa's so he could play in the snow since I wouldn't be able to easily take him out to play at our house.  He wasn't interested in having his picture taken when I got there! 

Bryce enjoyed trying to sled.  Jason took him out in the yard to sled some more when he got home from work and he loved it!

He really would have been happy to throw snowballs all day.  He did lots of that outside with Jason, too.  Jason had to drag Bryce in because he was worried his hands were getting too cold, even with his gloves on!

Cheering with excitement over the snowman!  It was fun to get some snow, but I'm looking forward to the 70 degree temperatures they're forecasting for Thursday!

Bryce looks like he had a blast in the snow! Glad to hear everything's going well routine-wise for you!
