one month.

Weight: 9 pounds, 2 ounces.
Height: 21 inches
Clothing size: Mostly newborn. She outgrew a couple onesies, but most of the stuff is still fitting...and some of it she hasn't even grown into. I have so many cute 0-3 stuff I'm dying to put her in, but I'm soaking up her littleness while it lasts :) 
Diaper size: Officially a 1. 
Feeding: Omg feeding is SO much easier. The first couple weeks felt like I literally had her attached to me 24/7, but she is starting to get in a routine. She eats every 2-3 hours for about 30 minutes. Sometimes longer because she tends to mess around a lot.
Sleep: This is getting SO much better too. We panicked when we came home from the hospital and she HATED her bassinet. I mean LOATHED it. She would sleep for like 30 minutes at a time. I finally broke down and let her in bed, and just like magic, she slept four hours straight haha silly girl. We Jake hated the idea of her being in bed (he is the heaviest sleeper ever) and I hated the idea of having to get her out of bed at some point, so we bought the Fisher Price Rock N Play Sleeper. OMG! Jesus handcrafted it himself. He had to. She will sleep in it for about 3.5 to 4 hours straight. She usually falls asleep around 8pm, either in her pack n play or Jake's arms. Then wakes up at 12 to feed. I don't really count that one because I'm typically still awake. Then she will wake again at about 3:30 or 4, and will wake up at around 7, but usually just eats and falls asleep again. It hasn't been too bad at all.
Milestones: Can lift her head really well. She will follow things with her eyes. And at 3.5 weeks she rolled from her belly to her back. It wasn't just a one time deal, either. She does it all the time.
Mommy and Daddy's best memories this month: The first week home together. It was so fun to literally just sit and stare and love our little girl. We loved having Jake off of work, and can't wait until summer vacation. This past week has been fun for me since everything has suddenly become SO much easier. I'm still tired and motherhood is by no means an easy gig, but I've been able to relax and enjoy my little girl. So blessed!
