I cannot believe my baby is one month old! I am already dreading going back to work! Ansley has already changed so much! She started out pretty needy and intense- I don't think we put her down the 1st week! Not that I minded holding my sweet newborn! She cried so much during her bath in the hospital that she made herself sick, and continued to be pretty vocal anytime we started to put her down once we got home - diaper changes, baths, etc. We now know she likes to be swaddled. She has a major startle reflex which makes it hard to lay her down. The swaddling really helps! She will now sit in her bouncy seat for a little while, too.
Ansley Sue- You are staying awake more now, especially in the mornings. You still eat every 2-2 1/2 hours, even at night. There have been a couple of 3 hour stretches, but mostly you stick to the 2 hour schedule. You are a good eater, and now you don't sleep through most of your feedings. You had your 1st bottle at 4 weeks old, and did great. Daddy said you made some pretty bad faces, but you took 2 oz with a little coaching.
I'm not sure how much you weigh now, but I'm sure its over 8 lbs. You were over your birth weight at 1 week, and at a little short of 2 weeks you were at 7 lbs 6 oz. You are wearing size 1 diapers now and are in between newborn and 0-3 month clothes. Some of the 0-3 month clothes that run a little small fit you pretty good now.
