I'm giving myself a high five if I remember to eat breakfast in the morning, it's that bad.
I am seriously the most forgetful person ever so add the kids in, yeah, hot mess!
I find the only way for me to remember anything is to write it down. I suck at using my phone's calendar so that doesn't work. I mean just ask anyone who really knows me. My phone and I are not best friends.
This leaves me with the old school option of having a planner. I know, I really should get it together and figure out my phone but I just don't get it.
Well, now they make planners for Moms, woot! I seriously get excited over the simplest things and this was one of them.
First of all if you want a place to keep your goals, weekly and monthly planner this is the one for you. It also has your day broken down by the hour so it's easy to schedule appointments and activities. This was my biggest issue with other planners. I would just write things in randomly and they would be all out of order. It drove me nuts.
The only downside to this planner is it's size. It is about the size of a notebook so if you want something you can take along with you in the diaper bag or your purse this will probably be a bit of a hassle. It is great for keeping everyone's activities and list in order so keeping it at home is not a problem for us.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
You are now one month old! It has been quite a month for you. You have had your tongue tie snipped, formula switched 4 times due to stomach issues, much like your brother, and your belly button has had to have silver nitrate put on it to help it heal. You also are a super fussy girl because of the stomach issues.
You are still getting breast milk but since I don't make enough you usually nurse through out the day and then get bottles to make up for the rest.
You are a good sleeper at night. You wake up usually around 3 or 4 AM and then around 6:30 and will sometimes just sleep till 9 or so. Much like your sister. You sleep randomly throughout the day.
You hate being put down. You like being held pretty much all day. Your brother was the exact same way. Ashlyn was so easy going that if I had to put her down she was cool with it but she was held a lot too but it didn't seem as demanding as it did with you and Ace.
You are starting to smile but they aren't social smiles yet. It seems like you are more smiling at things so it will be cool when you smile for us.
You drink about 3ozs every 3 hours. Wearing newborn to 0-3 month clothes. We are bumping you up to size 1 diapers since you are starting to grow out of newborns. You also have horrible poop diapers so we are hoping the new formula will help with that.
We all call you Gertie or Gert. This is so random but I was showing a group of my girl friends a picture of you when you were a newborn and I was joking how you looked like a Southern old lady because of your big lips and squinty eyes. One of them jokingly said we shall call you Gertrude and now it has become your nickname. I give you this pretty name and you now have a weird nickname haha. Your Dad has even said we could change your name since we rarely use Everly. No way!
It has been a crazy month getting adjusted to having 3 little ones but we feel so incredibly lucky to have each of you in our lives. We can't wait to see your personality and how unique you are. We love you little angel!!
I can't believe you are 6 months old my little angel. You are such an incredible little girl. From your sweet smile to your amazing disposition.
Everyone who meets you can't get over what a happy and sweet baby you are. We have been told you have an old soul and I believe it. You just are so content with life and make everyone happy.
This past month you have been sitting up more and more. We still have to put a pillow behind you just in case but overall you are getting really great at sitting up.
You love to eat and we started giving you yogurt melts and puffs. Both you are a big fan of.
You are still a total Daddy's girl. You just smile so big for him. You give me sweet smiles and try to hold my face but there is just something about your Daddy you just adore. It makes me so happy since I was a total Daddy's girl growing up.
You are still such a big girl. I will know your stats on Monday but you are in 9 months clothes and I am pretty sure if I put you in 12 months on the bottom they'd fit. Your tank top onsies are 6 months but everything else has to be at least 9 months for you.
You have become a terrible napper. It is slowly getting better though. You always fall asleep on our walks and sometimes in the car if you haven't napped so you will sneak in a cat nap there and sometimes will take one good nap at home.
You still only have 2 teeth on the bottom. I thought you were going to cut more because of your issues with sleep but still none in sight.
I can't remember if this happened after you turned 5 months or before but you found your feet and like to put them in your mouth.
You are still a big "talker" much like your brother was. I swear between the two of you the house is never quiet. I am wondering if Everly will be the quiet one.
Miss Ashlyn, you are just the most incredible little person. I don't think I go a day without thinking about how lucky we are to have you.
Weight: 18 lbs
Height: 26 inches
Sleeping: Through the night 7PM- 6:30AM, Usually will only take one nap a day
