One Month

Pin It!

I am one month old!

You are such a content baby who really only cries when you're hungry, and sometimes when you get too sleepy. 

You always want your hands by your face. Somehow they always manage to break free when we swaddle you. You like to suck on your hands and when you manage to get a finger in your mouth, your eyes get wide and you are thrilled with the surprise. 

You have three cries.
The I'm-pissed scream cry.
The regular fussy baby cry.
And this little wheezy cry that sounds like a kitty and makes your dad and I want to cry.

You are so modest! You will be perfectly happy until it's time to change your diaper. You start to get frowny when the clothes come off (or unbuttoned) and then when the diaper comes off you get really mad. You let us know by using your scream cry. 

You prefer being on your tummy (whether on the couch or on our chests) to any other sleep position. We realized you'd only sleep for an hour or so on your back, but if we let you fall asleep on our chests you'd sleep for 3-4 hours. Mommy was so nervous but we started letting you sleep on your tummy during day time naps when mommy could watch you like a hawk. "They" recommend babies sleep on their backs. Your neck is so strong already. In fact, you could lift your head up off our shoulders when you were only one day old. You easily lift your head, turn it, and lay it back down on the other cheek when you want to. 

Mommy is grateful every day that you're such a great sleeper. I think that's one of the perks of having a big baby. You have always slept for 4-5 hour stretches. We have to wake YOU up to feed you. 

I can't believe it's already been a month. You are growing and changing every day right in front of our eyes. I am trying to soak up every challenging, sleep deprived, sweet moment of your newborn-ness. I know you won't always be so small.
I love you so much.

Her hair KILLS me! So precious!! She is so incredibly beautiful! Ah, isn't being a mom to our baby girls just the best!?
And Mia sleeps for 7 hours straight now! It's amazing! I used to wake her up to feed her but now? I let her sleep as long as she wants (unless I'm about to burst... the joys of nursing!)
