Olivia- 5 weeks old

Our little Olivia is 5 weeks old! She went to the doctor this past Friday. She weighed in at 10 lbs. 2 oz. and was 21.5 inches long. She's growing very nicely! Olivia is sleeping much better during the night. She has one stretch that lasts at least 3-6 hours. Then she'll go right back to sleep after that. Mommy is feeling much better now that she's getting more sleep. I napped a lot when Julianna was a baby but with a 2 year old in the house- napping really isn't an option. There's only a small window when they're both asleep so I use that time to have some "me" time or to get some things done around the house.

Olivia is only awake about an hour to an hour and a half before she's ready to go back to sleep during the day. I spend that time talking, singing, and playing with her as much as you possibly can with a newborn. Julianna and I lay on the play mat beside her while she has her tummy time. She loves getting kisses and will give you a little "smile" when you kiss her nose, mouth, or cheeks.
