37 week old Brinley

This is a summary for Brinley’s 37th week; she was 36 weeks old.


First big news–Brinley had her first haircut this week! Kind of crazy–my other girls were 2.5 and 3 when they had their first haircut.

Brinley’s baby hair hadn’t all fallen out, so she had some massively long hair mixed with some short new hair growing in and she kind of looked like a guy who was trying to pull off a comb-over.

So my friend Cassie trimmed it up for her so it can grow in more even and she can look like a little lady ;). Her hair looks so much fuller and thicker!


I got the final feeding of the day figured out. Finally!

I usually nurse her in this one spot for her first three feedings. This is a spot in the house that doesn’t have a lot of traffic and I have fed her there since she was about two months old.

But for her final feeding, I have been feeding her in her room with her door close and lights dim.

That obviously wasn’t working so well. She kept trying to play with stuff, so I thought I should try her at her usual spot. 

It has worked! She knows what to do in that spot and she does it.


She tried zucchini this week. It was mixed with green beans so I don’t know if she did or didn’t like it, but she had it.


Sleep was normal. Two naps. Night sleep good.


Brinley super loves animals. She shakes with excitement when she sees an animal. She especially loves cats, and whenever she sees one, she says, “Ke-hee!”


Brinley’s favorite book right now is Moo Baa La La Laby Sandra Boynton. She seems to love anything by Boynton; this one is her favorite.


Brinley is getting some eczema on her back. I don’t always remember to lotion her back after baths since she is laying on her back. The rest of her skin is totally fine–it is just her back.
