Baby Prez: 22 Weeks

Dear Baby Prez,

This week was your very first Halloween, and you were SO cute!  

Weight:    About 17 pounds.  Size 2 diapers, but you've almost grown out of them.  You might be in Size 3 diapers by next week!

Health:  Very healthy!  

Sleep:  You are basically sleeping through the night...most nights.  You go to sleep between 8 and 8:30PM, and then Mommy pulls you out of bed for a dream feed around 11PM, right before I go to sleep.  You usually don't even wake during the feeding, and if you do, you fall right back asleep as soon as your little head hits your pillow.  (You don't actually have a pillow yet, but you get the idea.)  Then, you sleep until about 5 or 6AM.  That's six or seven hours of sleep for you and Mommy and Daddy!  

Social:  You got to see lots of people at our outing to Boo at the Zoo, and as usual you grinned at everyone!

Diet:  You drink about 6 ounces of breastmilk every 3 or so hours, plus cereal and fruit for breakfast and veggies and barley for dinner.  

Likes:   Jumping, grabbing your toes, smiling, sucking and chewing on your fingers, toys

Dislikes:  Being hungry and laying down.


First Halloween

Mommy and Daddy were so excited for your first Halloween.  The very first outfit Mommy bought you was a Halloween outfit!  After thinking about lots of costume ideas, we decided to do family costumes with a Doctor Who theme, which was one of my favorite costume ideas.  You'll know all about Doctor Who when you get older.  Daddy was the 10th Doctor Who, Mommy was his companion, Amy Pond, and you were their time and space machine, the Tardis.  And you were the cutest little Tardis ever.

Since you were too young to go Trick-or-Treating, we took you to Boo at the Zoo.  We didn't know what to expect, but we took you all around the zoo and all kinds of characters were handing out candy.  Everyone commented on how cute you were and lots of people recognized who you and Daddy were dressed up as.  Not as many people knew who Mommy was dressed up as, though.  A police officer thought you were dressed as a little police officer, but one of his friends corrected him!

On Halloween night, Mommy did a photo shoot with you in your back-up costumes!  Then we scooped out pumpkins for carving.  You weren't sure what to think of the pumpkin guts, but you seemed to like playing with them.  Mommy and Daddy each carved a pumpkin, and also carved a little Baby Prez pumpkin using our initials as the eyes and mouth.  You weren't too excited about handing out candy, but we had a fun night!



Missed a week?  Watch my Little Prez grow!
