A couple of days ago we upped the amount of solid foods that Penelope gets. We're now doing breakfast, lunch, and dinner with bottle "snacks" in between. So in total she eats 6 tbsp of oatmeal, 2 jars of veggies, and 1-2 jars of fruit. She seems to really like the new feeding schedule. I sometimes worry that she's not getting enough because she's not growing as fast, but that's just FTM (first time mom) paranoia, she's full, happy, and having enough wet & dry diapers. Her growth slow-down probably has to do with the fact that if she didn't slow down then she'd be 6 feet tall by the time she was 5.
As for sleeping, it's been pretty consistent... which is nice. She usually goes down by 8ish, is up at 3 or 4am for a bottle, and wakes up for the day around 7:30am. We occasionally get a night of 8pm-6:30am (like last night) and those are SUPER awesome.
And now for my TV confession... I really like the show "What I Like About You", Amanda Bynes is hilarious. I know it's meant for teens, but it's totally my guilty pleasure.
