1 month old... and Happy Easter!

Our baby girl is now a month old! Hard to believe... and bittersweet. She's growing so fast. Every day we experience something new together. Here are some updates from her doctors appointment this past Tuesday, and some new developments:

**As of Tuesday, she weighs 8 lbs. 11 oz. That's up from 7 lbs. 1 oz on her birth day!

**She's still 21 inches long.

**She can still fit in most of her newborn outfits, but we've also started swapping out for the 0-3's. Some of them are too big still, but I give it another week before we'll have to retire her newborn collection.

**She's still eating around every 2-3 hours, and if given a bottle (of breast milk, of course) she'll usually gulp down around 3 ozs.

**Sleeping at night is hit or miss. Some nights she does wonderfully, only waking every 2-3 hours to eat then going right back to sleep. Other nights she likes to party. ;)

**She's smiling so much now! She also recognizes Jack and my voice. She'll turn all the way around to follow our voice!

  1. Awwww she is so cute!!! I love her easter dress.

  2. Oh my, she is so beautiful! Logan was the same length as well when he went in for his one month appointment...I'm guessing he's grown now though we'll find out on thursday. Logan is almost 2 months old (Thursday) and he is just now starting to sleep a bit more at night. His first stretch starting anywhere from 8pm to 9pm is about 4 - 5 hours long. I just make sure to get him to bed around the same time and to shut off the lights in his room other then the night light during his before bedtime feeding. Also, once I started swaddling him again at night time for when he's asleep he's sleeping better as well. One last thing, I keep the lights off and try not to talk to him at all when he wakes up for a feeding at night. That REALLY helped with the 'Mommy we're up lets PLAY!' attitude at night time. Now he just eats and then falls back asleep. It took about a week for him to figure it out, but he did. Good luck!
