Emma Ramey – you are one month old today! How is that even possible? I see what they mean by it flying by – it seems like you were born last week. I’m going to need you to stop growing now!
-You are about 12.4 pounds, a little over 22 inches long (getting a wiggly newborn to stretch out is not easy, by the way), and your head is about 16 inches around. You’re a big girl, and show no signs of slowing down in the growing department anytime soon!
-You are wearing a size 1 diaper…those newborn diapers never did fit. You wore newborn clothes for about a week, and you’re solidly in 3 month clothes now. You can get away with some 6 month clothes too!
-You’re eating about 5 ounces at every meal, from our best guess. Daddy gives you a bottle at your 9pm feeding, and we just started a bottle at your 6pm feeding last night to make sure you’re getting full!
-You sleep most of the day right now – out of every three hours during the day, you’re sleeping two of them (most of the time). You have a good stretch of awake time about 6-8 where you’re pretty fussy and just don’t want to nap. When you go to sleep for the night at around 9:30, you are usually asleep until around 6 or 7 in the morning, with the exception of one feeding in the middle of the night.
-You’ve just started really smiling in the past few days. You have such a pretty little toothless grin! 🙂
-Your favorite thing in the world is a ceiling fan. If there’s one in the room, you’ll stare at it over anything else. That’s how we calm you down sometimes – hold you under the fan and let you look at it! You also love the bows hanging behind the chair in your room…I think it’s the color. You’ll stare at those while you’re eating sometimes. And you love the tray ceilings in the living room too!
-You HATE burping. You’ve really started fighting it when I try to burp you in the past few days. Every time you burp, your eyes start watering and you start whining…it breaks my heart!
-You’re starting to warm up to the swaddle. You didn’t like it at first, but as long as it’s tight, you’ll tolerate it. If you don’t wear it, you wake yourself up with your hands moving. You’ll still try to wrestle out of it though, usually without much luck (actually, as I’m writing this, I’m watching you on the monitor try to wrestle out of it!).
-The baby acne has hit you in the past week or so. Hopefully it will go away in a couple of weeks. You’re still pretty even with it though. 🙂
-Still not a fan of the swing or the bouncy seat…hopefully that will change soon.
-Your eyes are turning blue, we think! They’re still dark, but getting lighter every day.
-You love riding in the car and looking out the window.
-Your daddy and I love you more than you know! You’ve made this the best month of our lives!
