Two weeks ago when my mom was helping me out, she gave Gemma bottles during the night and gave me a few nights of solid sleep… I cannot remember the last time I was able to sleep eight hours without waking up! This was the documentation via my UP24 band:
That is me headed out to run errands. Showered and rested. Four weeks postpartum. It needed to be documented.
Speaking of four weeks postpartum, Miss Gemma turned ONE MONTH!
In the last couple weeks I have started walking again. Nothing too strenuous, but it’s felt great to get out and moving. Here is Ashton enjoying the “new ride” (aka a BOB Dualie):
Gemma has had some diaper rash that wouldn’t go away, so after little success of trying to treat it with the cream we had, I called the pediatrician. The nurse said it sounded like a diaper rash of the “yeast” variety and to try this combo:
Such random ingredients, but they worked like a charm! Who knew?!
Also from weeks 4-6 for Gemma, she started getting a big ‘ol fussy time in the evening from about 8pm to 11pm or so. It. Was. Rough. A few of the nights she wouldn’t sleep well after that, so we were struggling. Honestly, I don’t mind the nighttime feedings, but the evening stretches of fussiness are what get me. So a couple nights ago I started giving her a bath at night, and look who has overcome “fussy time!”
On top of beating fussy time, she has been sleeping for six hour stretches each night! Hallelujah!
And then another favorite from lately is this photo I captured of my hubby and Gemma taking a nap ❤
So much to love about it… Ruffle butt, local shirt, Ohio, music…
And then lastly is this picture with the Ohio State bow that Aunt Wendy sent up with a bunch of other adorable bows:
Have a fabulous Friday! xoxo
