I was going through some of my old posts, trying to decide what to write about for today. I have some exciting new content to share, but I noticed we haven’t done a Cora update in over 2 weeks! Ok, so that’s not a lot of time… but babies change so quickly! Not to mention I have some new, adorable photos I took of her that I want to share. 😉
She is a whopping 10 lbs now and has grown 2 inches since birth. I was concerned she wasn’t eating enough, but those worries are long gone. She is really smiley when you make eye contact and talk to her. She is so strong and loves to be kept upright for as long as her little neck muscles will allow. Speaking of neck muscles, she can hold her head up, moving it from side to side, for short periods of time.
Sophie has become increasingly affectionate toward her baby sister. I truly think having them close together (21 month age difference) has helped to keep any jealousy at bay.
Cora sleeps fairly well at night. She will usually give me a 5 hour chunk of sleep before waking once in the middle of the night. Overall she has been a more difficult newborn than Sophie was. She demands to be held for most of the day, hates lying flat on her back, and is extremely gassy! So much so, that the pediatrician and I are on a mission to see if she has a food allergy. Otherwise, she is a total doll who is slowly stealing bits of my heart each day. I haven’t had the same quality time with her, that I had with Sophie, but we get little moments together during Sophie’s naps that have helped us to bond.
Be on the lookout for more updates on this little sweetheart, as well as some more original content.
