1 month

azalea, i can't believe as of yesterday you are a month old! how has it already been a whole month since we first laid eyes on you? it's been a whirlwind, that's for sure - from the early days with you sleeping almost every hour of the day (and us fighting with you to wake you up for feedings) to watching your dad fall in love with you to all of the visitors we had to worrying about you losing weight and all of the breastfeeding struggles to giving you your first bath to experiencing your first easter to trying to wrap our minds around the fact that you are ours forever and how much we love you. 

here are some details about you at one month:

-you probably weigh somewhere between 9 and 9.5 lbs (we won't know for sure until your 2 month appt, but you are growing!)

- you still wear mostly newborn clothes, but also some 0-3 mo. i never would have guessed you would still wear newborn clothes at 1 mo. but some of that stuff is huge!
-you just graduated from newborn diapers to size 1. we're hoping to start using the cloth diapers soon, but they still seem pretty big on you.
-you eat about every 2.5-3 hours during the day and every 3-5 hours at night (1 oz. of pumped breast milk and 2 oz. of formula). you love your bottle and i love that dad, grandmas and grandpas, friends, etc. get to feed you too.
- you sleep in the pack n play in our room and i love looking over at you and watching you sleep. you are a very active sleeper! it seems like you are always making sounds, kicking your  legs, etc.
-you like to sit in your vibrating bouncer chair while mom showers or needs her hands free (most of the time)
-you get pretty fussy in the afternoon and evenings, but we try our best to make you happy :) sometimes we just stick you in your big crib on your back and you are instantly calmed. it's pretty cute!

and now, here you are at 1 month:
