Harper: months 3, 4, and 5

I am a little behind on updating Harper! Months 3, 4, and 5 have flown by and she has changed so much. Months 3 and 4 were rough. Harper wasn't sleeping at night- she was waking up about every 90 minutes. That went on for 5 weeks straight and we were exhausted. At her 4 month well visit the Dr. didn't like that she wasn't sleeping enough and we came up with a plan we were both happy with. I'm very happy to report that she is now sleeping though the night! Finally!!!

Eating: Harper's tongue tie and reflux are under control and she is eating like a champ. She goes through stages, but she is usually a very hungry girl. She is eating about 6 oz every 3 hours during the day. We haven't started solids yet, but will probably start in the next few weeks.

Sleeping: She takes 2 naps during the day and these naps range from 1 hour to 3 hours. Some days it feels like she doesn't nap at all- she's not like Hadley was at all!! Bedtime starts at 6:30. Both girls take a bath and Harper gets swaddled and eats while Hadley plays in the bath or hangs out with daddy. Harper usually falls asleep while eating. She's been in her crib for a few weeks and its going great. I do the dream feed at 10:30 and she'll sleep until 5 or 6. She will go back to sleep and both girls get up around 8 for the day.

Harper is the sweetest, most chill baby. She will happily sit in her carseat while we are out and is happy most of the day. She loves her swing, play mat and most of all her big sister. She rolls over, coos and plays with her toes.

She is tall and lean and growing perfectly:
24 inches- 97%
14 pounds- 37%

We love you Harpie Lou. You make all of us so happy!
