Its been a very fast month and we are both doing great. I don't know if it was the quick labor or the second time Mom thing, but I felt much better, much faster this time around. G is doing a great and slowly falling into a recognizable routine, which is very nice. Unlike when Charlie was a newborn, I'm actually able to get a shower and eat during the day. It's lovely!
Stats: 9lbs. 3oz. and 20 1/2 inches long
Firsts this Month: First Easter, bath, visitors, cloth diapers, trip to the park, and overnight trip.
Clothes: Outgrown newborn onesies and sleepers, but still needs newborn pants despite the fluffy butt. They're still big, but 0-3 months sleepers fit length wise pretty well.
Favorites: Cuddling, eating, and sleeping. Ah, what a life.
Sleeping: So far, so good! Long naps, decent stretches at night, travels well - I couldn't ask for more at a month. She started out in the Rock and Play, but woke up every half hour. Then we moved her to the newborn napper part of the Pack and Play where she did a bit better. Surprisingly, she gets her best sleep flat on her back and unswaddled. Hey, I'll take it!
Eating: Breastfeeding milestone #1! We've made it one month and going strong. I've gotten really good at nursing in public, while walking, and even hands free in the Ergo carrier, which I'm particularly proud of. Next goal: 3 months.
New Tricks: Lifting her head briefly and beginning to track things with her eyes.
And in true month milestone fashion, here is G's monthly pic with her Minnie Mouse. I can't wait to see her grow and grow!
