Day Fourty Five

Day Fourty Five

So we were all home and Isobel was crawling around as she usually does and she was in her favourite place (hanging onto the Rubbermaid container) and I had to go to the bathroom (which is about 5 meters along her eyeline) and according to Brandi she rested her chin on the Rubbermaid container when I went in there and stayed in that position until I came out and then she lifted her head up and grinned. She's so cute.

She woke up early again so we were on the go starting at 6 today. For the most part her schedule was an hour early but then her afternoon nap solved that, in addition to the fact that Brandi got home a little early as well.

We also walked up to the nurses station on Hornby and Drake to weigh her as she's 8 months old today. She was 13.10.2 pounds (6193g) and was 25 inches (63.5 cm) long. So she's still a really small baby but since she's got all this baby fat on her, chubby little legs, neck rolls, etc and developmentally she's ahead of the curve we're still not really that worried about her. When I hold her I notice her little heart racing. I suspect she's just got a super high metabolism. I'm sure she'll be keen on that as she gets older.

We went for a second walk when Brandi got home as more of her "get more exercise" plan. Since I forgot our emergency pack at the clinic (we have this little emergency kit under the stroller for when I don't want to lug our backpack/diaper bag around, couple diapers, wipes, cloth for laying baby on and a breastfeeding blanket) we walked back there to retrieve it, it was there, and then went to pick up some Stepho's (cheap Greek food) and back home. She was pretty tired so while Brandi scrubbed her feet with a rock I tried to calm her to sleep. She went with barely a fight at like 7:30.

She woke up as I prepared to write this up (like 10:00) and since I forgot to use Brandi's breast milk she had pumped yesterday I was in charge of the first feeding of the night. She drank it down and I plopped her back in the crib. She cried when I took the empty to the sink but calmed down when I went back to rub her back and fell asleep directly.



We went to feed Lucy tonight. I was worried that she would sleep the
entire time. I was a little worried that she had forgotten me. But she
was pretty alert and I believe she remembers me. She even did a great
job latching on. Now if I could only sit long enough to feed her.

The last time I saw her in person, I thought she really looks like
Alex. It is a little strange to wrap your head around breastfeeding
your brother and not be weirdes out. But tonight, I think that she
looks like my baby pictures. It's amazing how she changes everyday.

Based on my limited breastfeeding experience, it reminds me of Dorothy
walking through the field of poppies on the Wizard of Oz. One night I
tried to feed her for over an hour on the left side. By the time I
moved to the right, I fell asleep within five minutes. Goodbye any
mild form of insomnia I may ever have. I just need that baby topless
snuggled up under my boob. It is all I can do to keep my eyes open
right now. And she's not even home yet.

I have taken full advantage of having these few days to settle in
while she bathes under the sun lamps in the hospital nursery. I have
learned how to crawl in and out of bed on my hands and knees. We've
unpacked and put away my overpacked hospital suitcase. Plus I've had
two in-house acupuncture appointments. That's the great thing about
living in Chinatown. Dr. Wu is right next door. I needed to get in a
lot better shape to take care of her when she finally arrives home.
And I think that it worked.

I'm hopeful that tonight will be my last night that doesn't include a
diaper change. In fact, I haven't changed a diaper yet. Tomorrow is
our eighth wedding anniversary and I can't think of a better gift for
Henry. (And me!) I failed Valentine's this year. And I no longer need
the prenatal/couple's massage I had intended to schedule for this
past Saturday. I'm glad I forgot to make the call.

Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby

“TRACY HOGG HAS GIVEN PARENTS A GREAT GIFT–the ability to develop early insight into their child’s temperament.”
–Los Angeles Family

When Tracy Hogg’s Secrets of the Baby Whisperer was first published, it soared onto bestseller lists across the country. Parents everywhere became “whisperers” to their newborns, amazed that they could actually communicate with their baby within weeks of their child’s birth. Tracy gave parents what for some amounted to a miracle: the ability to understand their baby’s every coo and cry so that they could tell immediately if the baby was hungry, tired, in real distress, or just in need of a little TLC. Tracy also dispelled the insidious myth that parents must go sleepless for the first year of a baby’s life–because a happy baby sleeps through the night. Now you too can benefit from Tracy’s more than twenty years’ experience. In this groundbreaking book, she shares simple, accessible programs in which you will learn:

• E.A.S.Y.–how to get baby to eat, play, and sleep on a schedule that will make every member of the household’s life easier and happier.
• S.L.O.W.–how to interpret what your baby is trying to tell you (so you don’t try to feed him when he really wants a nap).
• How to identify which type of baby yours is–Angel, Textbook, Touchy, Spirited, or Grumpy–and then learn the best way to interact with that type.
• Tracy’s Three Day Magic–how to change any and all bad habits (yours and the baby’s) in just three days.

At the heart of Tracy’s simple but profound message: treat the baby as you would like to be treated yourself. Reassuring, down-to-earth, and often flying in the face of conventional wisdom, Secrets of the Baby Whisperer promises parents not only a healthier, happier baby but a more relaxed and happy household as well.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

The last thing new parents can find time for is quiet reading, so many helpful books on infant care rely on bullet points and a "let's get to the point" writing style. Tracy Hogg, a neonatal nurse, teacher, and mother of two, uses these techniques to good effect in Secrets of the Baby Whisperer. Focusing on newborns and their parents, her simple programs are a blend of intelligent intuition and methods based on years of experience. The first half of the book is devoted to E.A.S.Y--her name for creating a structured daily routine for you and your baby that makes the most of your baby's awake times and also leaves time just for you. These concepts aren't designed to force your bundle of joy into not following her body's needs, but rather to create a feasible middle ground between total rigidity and on-demand food and sleep (and no time for mom to shower). If it still strikes you as too regimented, keep reading. The author makes room for differences in personal style and includes short quizzes to determine whether you're a "planner" or a "winger", and what level of daily structure you are likely to find helpful. In the same chapter, she identifies five general temperaments of infants, how to get an accurate feel for yours, and what methods of care are likely to be the most effective for his temperament. Her statement that babies prefer routine is backed up by research from the University of Denver. While most of the book relies on anecdotes to get the points across, Hogg does find room to back up some of her statements with quotes from various researchers and institutions. Included at the end of the book are assurances that E.A.S.Y. can be followed even with a colicky baby or one who's been ruling the roost for the first few months. Frustrated parents might like to read the last page first: "all the baby-whispering advice in the world is useless unless you're having a good time being a parent" is an excellent reminder to enjoy this time with all of its ups and downs. --Jill Lightner
