5 Weeks Old

  • January 24, 2009 10:33 am

Kira had her one month appointment this week and everything checked out great.  She gained just under a pound (she’s now 8lb 11oz) and 1/2 an inch.  She’s still 1/2 inch shorter than she was at birth (due to her cone head at birth), but no one seems concerned.  It was clearly a big head! 🙂

She is smiling more and more and starting to make cooing sounds.  She also is holding her head up really good.

She now sleeps 5-6 hours at night before waking up, then another 4 hours after that, so that is helping her tired parents catch up on some rest.  She also spends more time awake during the day and likes to play on her playmat  (well, play, as in stare at the toys near her head).  However, the kitty has decided that “baby on playmat” equals “fun time for kitties”, because she stalks the baby’s feet from underneath the mat.  The kitty loves to carry around baby socks and now that all of a sudden those socks are kicking around all by themselves…well, it just adds to the fun.  She doesn’t hurt the baby at all and is just very playful, although this morning she actually stole Kira’s sock right off her foot!!

Babies are fun to play with!


I'm just cute
