1 month old

Our sweet baby girl is 1 month old (and 2 days to be technical), which is so hard to believe. She is getting so big!

Info from her first month:
  • She can still wear some newborn stuff but is quickly growing into 0-3 months clothes.
  • She still eats like a champ and is eating 7 or 8 times a day for 20-30 minutes. She started drinking out of a bottle which we do about every other day (still slower than nursing currently).
  • She is wearing size 1 diapers. Best.thing.ever. She has only had 1 blowout since we switched.
  • She went 5 & 1/2 hours between feedings at night several nights ago but usually only goes 4-5 hours.
  • She LOVES her bouncy chair. She is starting to be able to really focus on the mushroom and other toys above her.
  • She likes it when we read and sing to her (dad's favorite books are anything Dr. Seuss).
  • She loves her supervised tummy naps.
  • She is getting more and more alert during the day and stays awake anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 & 1/2 hours.
  • She gets the hiccoughs after EVERY feeding...poor girl.
  • She has the cutest sneeze ever...I love it!
  • She may have smiled at us but it's still hard to tell if it is AT us or because the milk makes her feel so good.
Crazy spiky hair.
So exhausted after eating.
Enough already with the pictures!

There is so much more but how can I put it all in words...her super cute faces and noises, her little habits she's developing. We love her so much and are so thankful for our sweet girl!


  1. She is so adorable, Erica! My favorite books are Dr. Seuss as well. So I pretend that they are also Paisley's favorite books!

  2. I can't believe she's already a month old! That hair is killing me--I LOVE it! She's a doll Erica.

  3. Aww Erica these pics make me realize how much I miss holding my sweet niece! I can't wait to see her..and ya'll again. I know I'm her aunt...but I seriously think she really just might be the cutest baby EVER!! Love ya'll!

  4. So cute Erica! It's neat to hear all the things you've learned about her. It makes her who she is. I love that. Happy to hear the new diapers are working well. I can only imagine how nice that would be for a diaper to actually hold it all in. Haha. I can't believe how quickly she is changing. It's wild to me. Love you lots!

  5. Happy one month baby girl! So fun to see you all at Braum's the other night. She is absolutely precious, precious! Hope to see you again soon!

  6. We were crazy about Addie's sneeze too! She made this sweet little coo after each one and we just froze every time she looked like she might sneeze! Oh babies--they're just amazing. Elliott is one adorable kid. :-)
