Bailey Anne: 1 month

my little girl turn 1 month old recently! At her 2 week old appointment she weighed in at 8 lbs 8 oz. but I recently hopped on the scale with her and she was about 9-10 lbs!

She definitely has changed in appearance in the past couple weeks, when she was born she was a spitting image of her dad but as those chunky precious cheeks and big blue eyes have come in, I see a little more of myself!

She was 21 in. long at her 2 week appointment and is wearing newborn and 0-3 clothes. Although the newborn sleepers with feet are probably ready to be retired any day now *tear

The past month has been so much fun, with her changing SO much every day! When we brought her home, I loved how small and delicate she was, I kept saying I never wanted her to grow but the more she changes, the more joy she brings us each and every day! She is starting to focus and smile so much which melts my heart and although she was trying to lift her head at 2 days old (overachiever!) she can definitely hold her head up much better and turn her head from side to side. She LOVES to kick and has strong little legs, which I knew long before she was here!

She is the cuddliest little baby and LOVES to be held, snuggle up to my face and sleep in our arms. I have to remind myself at times when I feel like I’ve done NADA all day long that one day I won’t be able to hold onto her long enough, so enjoy these moments when I am all she wants Smile

She has been a great breast feeder from day one but we have started to supplement a bottle of formula 1 or 2 days a week just to give momma break from time to time. When she does take a bottle she is eating 4 oz. and has consistently been eating every 3-4 hours.
