One Month Update

Our sweet little girl is one month old today. I can't believe it.  We love her so much.  I love watching her discover new things.

Weight: 7 lbs, 13 ozs
Height: 22 inches

Eating: She is still eating around the clock.  Usually about every 2-3 hours and sometimes as often as every hour.  She still wakes us up throughout the night to eat.

Sleeping: She is more alert and awake during the day in the past week.  Her eyes seem to be able to focus more.  She will turn her head to the sound of our voices.  I try to get her to take a short nap during the day, so I can get things done around the house.  When she is awake, she wants to be held.  We are going to have to work on that in the future, but for now I'm enjoying my snugglebug.  She still only sleeps about 3 or 4 hours at a time at night.

Milestones & Firsts: Well, everything is new for her.  
Some noteworthy things were:
* She had her first road trip to Ohio.  
* She "watched" her first Ohio State game.
* It could have just been gas, but I think she smiled at us.
* She is holding her head up more and starting to push with her legs against my legs
* She loves to snuggle up on daddy's lap and fall asleep.
* We tried cloth diapers this week and it involved a blow out and a whole wardrobe change.  Her legs appear to be too skinny still for the ones we have.


  1. She's adorable and I can't believe she's a month old already!

  2. She is precious - Happy 1 month!
