Baby Checklist. Week #7
1. When I dangle objects in front of baby, Trey follows them with Trey’s eyes.
2. I never thought I’d say this, but I’m starting to be able to put baby down when Trey ’s sleepy but still awake. Trey can sometimes put himself to sleep if I catch Trey at just the right time!
3. My baby has had Trey’s two-month checkup, which included a lot more vaccinations! The two-month vaccination series includes the first dose of rotavirus, the first dose of DTaP, the first dose of Hib, the first dose of PCV13, and the first dose of IPV.

5. I don’t have much time for make-up these days. But I’m getting the hang of putting on a couple of things quickly — some lip gloss and mascara or eyeliner, so I can feel a little dressed up without spending a lot of time.
6. I squeezed back into some of my pre-pregnancy jeans! Sure, they used to be my loose, comfortable jeans, but hey, I’m finally out of maternity clothes! I’ll take it.
7. I’ve thoroughly researched my daycare provider. They have plenty of experience with young babies, they’re certified, and they know infant first aid and CPR.

Baby Checklist. Week #6
1. I’m getting really good at knowing what my baby is saying. I’m learning to read Trey’s cues, and know if Trey’s hungry or tired — usually even before Trey starts to cry.
2. I thought all those freezer meals I prepped when I was pregnant were going to last forever, but now they’re starting to get a little low. Time to start cooking again.
3. My baby’s immune system isn’t fully developed, so I’m making sure to protect Trey from germs. When we’re out in public, I keep sanitizer handy, and I never give Trey a toy or pacifier that’s fallen on the ground.

4. I’m making sure to stay hydrated, especially if I’m breastfeeding. I bought some extra water bottles so I can always keep one filled and nearby. 
5. My partner and I have talked about choosing a babysitter. We’ve started making a list of instructions about our baby’s bedtime routine so we can get an evening babysitter when we feel ready.
6. My baby startles easily. If Trey hears a sudden noise or if I put Trey down too quickly, Trey throws Trey’s arms out and then pulls them back.
7. I love talking with my baby! Trey doesn’t talk back, but Trey does imitate my expressions. You should see her smile!

Baby Checklist. Week #5
1. My baby is starting to pay more attention to the world. Trey notices sounds and looks around to try to figure out where the sound came from.
2. My baby tries to reach for things! When I put Trey in the play gym, Trey looks at the different colors and bats at the hanging toys. Baby doesn't really have control of Trey’s arms yet, but Trey seems to enjoy trying.
3. If I’m breastfeeding, I’ve talked with my lactation consultant about how my food affects baby. We’ve discussed whether I should make any changes to my diet.

4. My doctor said I can start regular exercise, so I joined the gym! I plan to work out in the evenings while my partner spends some quality time with baby.
5. My partner and I aren’t ready to leave baby with an evening sitter yet, so we’re planning some “date nights in.” We’re taking some time to focus on each other and stay connected.
6. I had my 6-week postpartum doctor visit. I talked with my doctor about my birth control options and about whether I’m ready to start exercising.
7. Before I start pumping to save breastmilk, I’ve learned about how to store breast milk so I can reuse it later.
