She has been an amazing baby, she is so easily comforted when she cries. Its either a messy diaper, hunger or she just wants to be held and fortunately she's one of those babies that once she falls asleep we can easily put her down and walk away. She is a really good sleeper, she even gave us a full 8 hours when she was 3 weeks! (we haven't had another one of those yet, but I'll take what I can get) She did sleep 6 last night, and she's starting to go a solid 4-4.5 at night which is so nice.
She loves taking baths, and I think the nights we give her a bath are the nights she sleeps for longer periods of time (which means we're upping the number of baths we give her now!) Dan and I now do walk-a-bouts all over the house, sometimes she fusses like crazy if we sit, but as soon as we start walking around she is fine. Good thing we have a big house now! She is a great eater, she has been right from the beginning. She was 6 lb. 13 oz when she was born and dropped down to 6 lb. 4 oz when we left the hospital, the next day when we went to the pediatrician she had gained 1 oz. and by her 1 week appt. she was back up to her birth weight, the doctor said a lot of babies take several weeks to get back up, so we know she's eating well. Now at one month I can't wait to see how much she weighs, we go to the doctor on Wednesday! I'm guessing at least 8 pounds now. Still a little peanut, but to me she seems soo much bigger already!!
Here's a little photo shoot covering her first four weeks......
I have gone photo crazy with her so here are a few of my favorites from the first month. Again I will share her birth story when I get some time, I have a ton of photos that my amazing hubby managed to capture in the moment so I will share those soon!
