one month old, already?
everyone has told me how much she looks like her dad. i can't even tell you how much i love that. has his big eyes and long toes and sweet heart.
she has such bright eyes, clearly they will be dark brown like mine as she continues to grow, but i'm sure enjoying the newbornish grey remnants.
she has lost most of the hair on the top of her head, but still has long hair growing on the side and in the back. the cute old-man do, my favorite!
we ran out of the newborn diapers the hospital sent us home with and moved on to size 1 (they drown her). she still wears newborn clothes, and they are fitting perfect!
no longer screams through baths and seems content at best. i'm sure she'll begin to enjoy them as it gets warmer!
spends most of the day swaddled with two blankets.
has spit up a couple of times, but nothing too consistently crazy.
breastfeeds about every 2-3 hours, only about five minutes at a time. does some cluster feeds during the day, which i'm grateful that it's no longer happening at night!
has been sleeping 6 hours at a time during the night, but consistently wakes up at 6 am no matter what (at which point she gets to snuggle with mom in bed). has the cutest little snore when she's snoozing.
loves to cuddle on my chest, and that seems to be the easiest way for her to fall asleep.
has some dry skin and baby acne here and there.
holds her head up so well, loves to throw it back to look at us.
easily distracted by songs and actions- amelia and i love to sing the 'itsy bitsy spider' and the 'wise/foolish man' when she starts whimpering.
loves her carseat, usually falls right asleep whenever we go for a little drive.
always smiles when i don't have my camera ready. but we're okay keeping it to ourselves for a while.
despises tummy time so much, but has already rolled over front to back several times.
pushes herself up with her strong little legs.
loves her binky, thank goodness!
a little bit of a lightweight. stats at two weeks were 7 pounds 9 ounces and 20.5 inches long
i'm feeling rather calm about my newborn as it's my second time around. mostly, i struggled with finding enough hands for my two babes. we're finally getting a routine down, us three girls. i'm still tired all the time, but still so grateful for my working man so i get to stay home with our babies. i've cried so much this month, but i've never been happier. i'm so grateful to have my whole world wrapped up into three beautiful people.
