I can not believe that this little girl is already 1 month old!! She is changing her looks EVERY day. She is seriously so dang cute. We just love her so much.
She sure loves her food. She eats every 3-4 hours during the day and will eat easily 4 oz at every feeding. She gets very upset if she is hungry. Her cry when she is hungry is more of a whine... until she feels like we are taking to long to get the food to her, then she gets mad! At night she will eat almost 5 oz of formula before we put her down for the night. She sure is learning that she needs to fill up her belly before she sleeps. Once she is feed at night she will usually go to bed around 10-11pm and sleep for 5 hours :)!! Then after her next feeding she will sleep between 3-4 hours. It is so nice that she is only up once a night (for the most part).
We have all been working hard at getting all of us on a schedule. We are learning when she is hungry, has a dirty diaper, when she is tired, and when she is just bored.
She loves to cuddle!! But.. hates having her arms wrapped up. I think she might be claustrophobic, just like Mommy!! She wants to be able to wiggle and move her arms freely.
She is a little heater when she sleeps and even sometimes when she is awake.
She started smiling when she was about 3 1/2 weeks old!! I love when she does it is the cutest thing ever!! Her eyes are becoming more and more blue as she grows. Her fingers and toes are very long and very cute. She can't even keep little mittens on her hands because they don't fit. Her fingers are so long that the gloves are to small :)!! When there are people around her, weather it be holding her or just paying attention to her on the floor, she does really well and is content for most of the time. She is such a joy in our lives and we can not get enough of her!!
Love Her.
