One Month

May 13, 2011

Sadie, you are a month old now. How is that possible?

You now weigh 9 pounds and 10 ounces. You are in the 59% range for weight. You are 21 1/2 inches long which is in the 63% range. Your head is in the 73% range but that is no surprise because you are so smart. :)

You are such a sweet baby. You fuss at times but only when you are hungry, "windy", and cold. Your fussy time is anywhere between 5 and 8 at night and right before your 10 o'clock feeding because you get so hungry, Lately you are windy a lot but we are working on that.
You wear size NB clothes and a few 0-3 month things. You are in a NB size diaper but you'll be moving to a size 1 soon.

You sleep pretty well at night when you aren't grunting and passing gas. :) You go to sleep around 11 and lately you've been getting up between 4 and 5:30.

You aren't very interested in eat/play/sleep yet. You do it sometimes but other times you prefer the eat/sleep cycle. You are very good at putting yourself to sleep. You've made it easy so far on momma because you don't cry when I put you down. You just look around and stare at things until you fall asleep. Please don't ever change this.

You've recently become a fan of your playmat and you still love (and sleep in) your bouncy seat. You like when we play patty cake (your Jules started you on that) and when your daddy kisses you.
You love getting a bath. You like to drape your legs over the side so they can be in the warm water. You do NOT like getting out of your bath though because it makes you cold.

You love to ride in the car. You are hardly ever fussy while in there and normally fall asleep.

You have been such a good girl every where we have taken you. You let people pass you around and hold you and you never cry. For the most part you are a very easy going baby.

You've been to church twice but you haven't gone to the nursery yet.

EVERYONE tells us how pretty you are and it makes us so proud.

We love your crazy expressions and your wild hair. You have some baby acne and dry skin but you're still the prettiest thing your daddy and I have ever seen.

Sadie, your daddy and I love you SOOOO much. You have completely changed our lives. Although it isn't always easy we wouldn't change a thing. By far the hardest and best month of our lives. We can't wait to watch you continue to grow and change. Maybe you should slow it down a bit though. Time is going by way too fast.

She is soo adorable! I totally agree with you having her put herself to sleep. Our first son I would feed him and then rock him until he went to sleep and then placed him in his crib. He developed this sleep association where the last thing he remembered was me rocking him to sleep and then when he woke up I wasn't there and he would cry and cry! It was a horrible pattern, and he is now five and we are finally able to put him in bed and leave the room. For years we would have to sit in his room until he fell asleep! And he still gets up at least once every night and tries to climb in our bed!

Then I had my second son. We wanted to try to correct the mistake that we made with the first. So we would feed him and then put him in his crib and he would fall to sleep on his own. He is now four and is such an awesome sleeper. You just tell him goodnight and shut the door and he is instantly out!

So I think that what you are doing is going to save you from a lot of potential headaches that we still currently have with a five-year-old! lol

Anway, she is such a cutie! Have a fabulous week!
