1 month old!

I can't believe our little girl is one month old already!  This month there have been a lot of ups and downs emotionally and physically- which from what I've heard is totally normal (whew!).  We have been dealing with the reflux and colic the best we can.  For the most part, we have a system down so it's becoming somewhat bearable. 

Emily at 1 month:

*  She has outgrown her newborn outfits, she is too long for them already!

*  She is eating about 3 oz every 3 hours during the day

*  The longest she has slept at night is about 4.5 hours

*  She has started to smile, follow things with her eyes, and makes some pretty cute sounds when she's happy

*  Everyone thinks she looks like her daddy :)

*  Right now her eyes are a very pretty dark blue


*  She loves using her hands to grab fingers or anything in her line of sight

*  I'm amazed at how strong her neck is!  She can lift her head and hold it up for a few seconds at a time, especially when she's mad and ready for food

*  She loves listening to Adele

*  Her hair is often the topic of conversation everywhere we go

Happy 1 month birthday sweet Emily! We are so happy to have you in our lives!


This picture captures her personality perfectly....I think we're in trouble.

  1. 1 Month already?!?! Wow! I feel so bad that she has refulx. I can totally understand her pain! It's awful and I bet it is far more painful when you are just a baby. Your poor sweet girl! Hopefully she will feel better soon! She is too cute!
