Happy One Month Birthday Abigail!

With her great-great-grandma.

I honestly can not believe my little girl is already 1 month old. It feels like yesterday I was in the hospital walking the halls to get labor started so we could finally meet her. Tommy and I have loved every minute with her this month. She’s grown up so much in these 4 weeks.

-She weighs 10.6 lbs as of yesterday.
-She’s in size 1 diapers
-She’s starting to grow out of some of her newborn clothes. She mostly wears 0-3 month stuff now.
-She eats 4-5 ounces every 3 hours.
-She’s taking breastmilk exclusively from a bottle now. Apparently nursing her was feeding her too quickly and making her spit up a lot of the milk. So bottle feeding it is.
-We’re starting to get on more of a schedule. I try to feed her around 7 or 8 in the morning as the start of the day and then she eats every 3 hours until 7 or 8 at night. Then its bed time and she does not eat until she wakes up. A few nights ago she went 6 hours between feedings, but she usually goes 4-5 hours at night.
-She is lifting her head very well during tummy time (and chest time with daddy!) and can hold it up for a quite a while.
-We haven’t heard many oohs or aaahs yet but this girl makes A LOT of noise. She grunts ALL the time. I definitely need to get a video of it. It’s hilarious, especially when we’re in the middle if a store and she starts grunting for about 45 seconds. We get lots of looks.
-She had her first trip to the mall yesterday. One of many many trips!!

She is too sweet! Enjoy the minutes and moments because it does pass way too fast! My little guy is already 17 weeks, and I have no clue where that time went. She is a doll!
