Sitting up like a big girl!
(Don't worry -- I'm sitting about 6 inches from her....)
You like to be curled up most of the time.
Thanks Grandma Lisa for the red rocking chair!
You're almost as long as your portable changing pad.
You are incredibly alert, never wanting to miss anything.
You only want to be carried high on our shoulders or turned outward so that you can see everything!
If someone "new" holds you and tries to carry you cradle style, you will have none of it.
Our little wiggle worm!
At one month:
You weigh: 7 lbs 0.5 oz. You are starting out slow, but doing great! We love our little girl.
You are starting to smile, mostly in the mornings.
You love to be in our arms (at all times :))
You don't like your pacifier. If we try to put it in, you know better and just spit it out.
You only want to nap while being held, you especially like to sleep on dad's chest.
You already sleep through the night! You have done this since day one. We are so proud!
We swaddle you and lay you in your crib. After 30 minutes of looking around, you fall asleep.
We can usually count on you sleeping 6 hours. Keep it up!
You like your baths until we begin to wash your hair. Then it's all down hill from there....
You eat 6-7 times a day (usually 6, at every 3 hours and 15 minutes). For the first two weeks you
ate for 30 minutes. Since then you take an hour. Hah. Slow and steady. We've given you a
couple bottles and you gulped them down in no time!
You had a big growth spurt at exactly 3 weeks! You ate every two hours.... all day long.
You like to be outside and go on walks. We managed to walk to Grandma Kay and Grandpa
Dave's house a couple times already!
We call you sweetheart, sweetie pie, baby girl, babe, cutie, cutie pie.
People at church think that you just sleep all the time. They want to see your eyes. Thanks for
being so well behaved when we're in public. :)
You are spoiled by your grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins that live here. They can't get
enough of you!
You met your cousins Lane, Gage, and Logan. They drove all the way from Colorado!
You were also visited by honorary aunt Lacey.
You lost your umbilical cord on June 17th.
You have gunky sleep eyes every time you wake up.
You were holding your head up before we even left the hospital.
Comments that people have made over and over:
She's so tiny!
Look at those long toes and fingers (dad says they're for basketball playing....mom says piano).
Does she have eyeballs?
Oh, so cute!
Her complexion is so good.
Does she make any noise?
Notes from mom and dad:
Can't imagine life without you....what did we do before?!?!
You've stolen our hearts, from day one.
Our housework has been sorely neglected because all we want to do is look at you.
It's hard for dad to leave every morning for work.
We know you need to grow, but it's a little bit hard to accept that you've changed so much
We LOVE you, forever and always.
