Sorry for the gap between posts. I should have put something up sooner, but brain needs sleepy in order to typee.
So Via is, in general, just about the easiest going baby I could have asked for. She has a very good ability to calm herself (momma said she was starving yesterday in the Dollar Store and was making this known, but then just quieted down as if she had made her point and knew it would be addressed soon. Very cool) She's sleeping well through the night for the most part. Formula is the rule now, and her stomach isn't the biggest fan of the normal stuff, so we switched to the soy formula yesterday and it seemed to work right away. She had a couple gassy moments, but we got through all that and slept for up to 2 1/2 hours at a time! WooHoo!!
She's already holding her head up some (not sure what the time frame for that is, but the sooner the better I say) and she will stare you directly in the eye. Very aware of what's going on it seems, even if she has no idea what it is she's looking at, or how to control her reactions to things yet. Can't wait to interact with her more when she actually can smile and coo without it being the result of a toot. :p
Anyway, I will be more diligent about making posts. We'll be having Easter and Christening stories to tell soon enough! By the way, the Christening will be May 16th at 1:30pm. That's the week /after/ Mother's Day for those who may be concerned about mixing parties.
