One Month!

Happy one month birthday to our sweet girl!

Here is a rundown on our new life.

Every day is different. Some days she will go 3-4 hours between feedings,
others it’s every two on the dot.
She now eats a lot more during the day and has been going about four hours at night.
I’ll take a lot of day feedings over a lot of night feedings any day, obviously.
I was very concerned about her eating regiment the first two weeks,
but once we found out she had gained a whole pound at her two week appointment,
I haven’t really worried too much about it since. I have my moments though.
She took a bottle for the first time this week,
and she took it like a champ!

Who would have thought that we would be SO happy with a four hour stretch of sleep?
That is our life now.
We are so happy when she goes 4 hours between feedings at night,
I think one night she even went close to five!
We basically live day to day in a series of naps.
She is starting to have more awake time during the day,
but again, we don’t really have a set schedule yet for sleeping.
We basically let her sleep when she is tired,
which sometimes turns into her not actually going to bed until 11pm or midnight,
or being up for a couple hours during the middle of the night,
but overall, she is a great sleeper. She gets that from her momma!

Welcome to the world of dirty diapers and lots of laundry.
We started cloth diapers when she was three weeks and haven’t looked back.
They are going very well and we really love them.
I really can’t believe how easy they are and she seems to like them too,
I don’t know how she couldn’t, they are SO soft on her little bum.

Majority of the time, during her awake hours, she is pretty content.
She obviously has her moments, but we really can’t complain.
We have been having supervised tummy time
and she is really doing a good job of lifting her head.
She loves: staring at the ceiling & fan and relaxing in her swing.

We have been very fortunate to resume our pre-baby life as much as possible,
and as much as we want to right now.
This past weekend, I was able to go to the UCF basketball game
and the Dwight Howard Celebrity Basketball game both at the UCF Arena.
Greg worked the events, so it was nice for me to get out and socialize with other adults.
I was able to put her in the Moby wrap, which allowed me to have two free hands,
and she slept through both games…but I do think she is already a basketball fan.
We also made it to Baby Bunch on Friday where we met a few new friends!

We can’t believe we already have a one month old!!

  1. Soooooooooooooo pretty. sometimes I think she looks just like Kendra & other times, Greg.
    How blessed you are that she seems to have settled into a quite nice,regular routine -well, as ‘routine’ as it can be for a one month old. You do realize that you won’t be able to wrest her out of all the IN relatives’ hands once you get here for Christmas? 🙂
