Nursing is still good. Nothing new to report.
Nightttime sleep is still good. Nothing new. I still wake her each morning.
This week, I didn't introduce any new foods to McKenna. I still have some I want to introduce, but I just didn't do any this week.
We are still having the dreamfeed. I have decided to wait until after the doctor appointment to drop it completely, but I also really want it gone before the time change. Feedings were at 10:10 this week.
FOUR HOUR SCHEDULE
Things are still going well.
I keep forgetting to mention McKenna's great love of stories right now. She especially loves touch and feel stories.
I also keep forgetting to mention that I have started showing signs to McKenna. I just sign "more," "all done," and "please" to her.
I also keep forgetting to mention that I have introduced McKenna to the sippy cup. She has gotten the idea that you suck from it from the start, which is much faster than Brayden or Kaitlyn were. She gives the sippy cup a weird look after she gets some water from it.
Our schedule remains pretty much the same.
8:00 AM--wake, nurse, eat 2-3 T prunes and 1 T peaches mixed with 3 T oatmeal
12:00 PM--wake, nurse, eat about 4 T green veggie and about 4 T banana
4:00 PM--wake, nurse, eat about 4 T yellow veggie, 4 T peaches or pears, and then 1-2 T oatmeal (sometimes she eats one bite only of oatmeal).
8:00 PM--wake, nurse, change into PJs, story, bed
