8 weeks today!

Wow time is going too fast. Rosa will be 3 mths old before we know it! Not alot to report about our darling really. She is doing so well and pretty settled. She goes for a couple of short naps in the mornings then a big 2.5 hour sleep in the afternoon but then from 3pm - 7pm she pretty much snacks and snoozes and fusses a little. I think it could also be the heat at this time of the day and this means she finds it hard to relax and go down for a proper nap. Can't really complain though.

She has gone back to waking in the night again but only once at around 3am, she feeds and then is back asleep within 20mins.

She is starting to really chuckle and coo now and looks around at everyone. She really pays attention to George much more too and he loves her so much. Always cuddling up and wanting to give her kisses.

Plunket Nurse came today and Rosa weighs 5.53 kgs (12.2 lbs) and is 59.5 cms tall! She is tracking above average for her height and weight. All looks good with her except for her poor little belly button. One of the vessels hasn't healed properly and she has a red bit sticking out of her belly. Its not to be worried about too much but as it hasn't healed in 8 weeks I've decided to get the GP to fix it with some silver nitrate. Can't have our little lady with a funny belly button!
