Georgia - One Month

June 17, 2011


Today you are one whole month!  I can't believe how fast the time has gone by.  I've learned so much about you this month and hopefully will continue to learn fast!

Sleeping and Eating
In general you LOVE to sleep!  When you wake up in the morning you eat 3-6 oz (half breastmilk-I only pump and half formula), are up for about an hour (which includes the time you eat and burp) and then fall asleep for two hours.  This continues all day.  You can knock out a nap girl!  Then at night , usually (but not every night) around 9 you get fussy until about 11.  It breaks my heart because there is usually nothing I can do about it.  Once we finally get you settled for the night your 2 hour sleep pattern usually doubles and you'll go for a good 4 hour stretch before you want to eat again.  Usually sometime around 3 you'll wake up although you never open your eyes.  I feed you and you go right back to sleep for another 3 hours.  I'm currently working on breaking you of this habit because you usually don't eat that much at your 3 AM feeding...maybe an ounce or two so I'm pretty sure you don't need to get up to eat.  I'm not one of those moms who enjoys the alone time with you during the night feeding...sorry G.

Food Coma = Precious!

You can hold your head up for a long time now before you get tired and let it drop.  You also occasionally smile at me and are getting really good at focusing on objects and making eye contact.

Baby smiles
(just FYI, those are Jonathan's hairy legs not mine!)

You're still in newborn clothes although they are getting pretty darn tight.  0-3 months clothes and onsies are still too big although Polo runs very small so you can wear your 0-3 month Polo have a TON of them in nearly every color!  You can still fit in newborn diapers but when you potty it tends to explode everywhere so we moved you up to 1's to contain your "waste" a bit better.

I love picking you up after your naps.  You're all warm and squishy and look so cute when you're stretching and trying to look SO BIG!

We had our first girl's day.  Me, you, and Auntie Ashley had lunch and pedicures.  You were so excited that you fell asleep.

Little girl, you have forever changed our life.  You have the cutest little smile and I swear you grow a new fat roll everyday while napping.

We LOVE you!

Happy One Month, little Georgia!! I love that you said she's warm and squishy after her nap, haha! You may have mentioned before, but I was wondering if that is a custom car seat cover? It is darling!!
