- Feeling like we have somewhat of a clue. Emphasis on somewhat.
Some things we've learned:
- Start putting her to bed around 7 p.m.. By 9 you have changed her diaper three times and gotten rid of all the gas and topped her off enough to get those heavy eyelids to finally close for a three to four hour break from nursing.
- On that subject, change her diaper and clothes and clean her bellybutton (and other disruptive things) before she eats. Then use the milk coma to our advantage by putting her down with no foreseeable hurdles.
- Mornings are our friend.
Some things we've learned the hard way:
- Take the advice, "sleep when she sleeps".
- Not every night will be easy!
- Going for walks
- Hearing our voices
- Being outside
- Laying on her tummy
- Having her picture taken
Olivia surprised us when:
- She was back to her birth weight by the start of week 2--well surpassed it, at 9 lbs, 10 oz!
- Ben found her rolled over in her bassinet with her arm hanging out of the side. (Here comes DSS)
Hank is warming up...He adores her from a distance and is already protective of her.

Unfit parents pose for pictures while their child is about to unknowingly break their neck.
Good thing this unfit parent's face is cropped out...
Join us next Monday night at 11:08 p.m. to see what Olivia gets into during her third week of life.
