Brinley Summary {41 Weeks Old}

Any links to Amazon are affiliate links.

This is a summary for Brinley’s 41st week; she was 40 weeks old.





Same old same old.



She took a bottle from Kaitlyn this week! Hurrah for more progress!



This week, she tried watermelon. MAJOR love. She super-loves watermelon. 



Brinley started a new thing at nap and bed time. I put her down for her nap, then walk to her door, and she rolls over and peeks out the side of her crib. I then wave to her and tell her how I love her and she waves back. Then she rolls back over and I leave.



Her morning nap moved back to 10:30 instead of 15 minutes this week.



I changed up her PJs. It got warmer, so instead of long sleeved, footed PJs inside of a fleece footed PJs, I am doing a onsie, socks, and light cotton pajama pants inside of fleece footed PJs.



8:45–nurse with solids (fruit, cereal, yogurt). Indepenedent Playtime happens in this block.


12:45–nurse with solids (veggie, fruit, cereal)


5:00–nurse with solids (veggie, fruit, cereal, finger foods)

    How did yuo do the watermelon? Did you puree it? I've been trying to figure out the best way to do it. My little guy is about 4 weeks younger.
