One month old!

One month old

Brooke!  You are one month old today!  This month has flown by so fast. 

You started out at 7 lbs and 19 1/4 inches long.  I can’t wait for you one month check up to see how big you are.  I think you will be a good bit bigger.  You are really starting to fill out and have the cutest little chubby cheeks! : )

You are still wearing newborn clothes, but I think our weeks are numbered with that.  You are in a size 1 diaper (grew out of the newborn diapers after about two weeks).

We had some road bumps on our breastfeeding journey, but now you are doing great.  So much so, that now you don’t want anything other than me – no bottles or pacis!  We are working with you on that and hope you get it figured out before I go back to work in six weeks. 

You are a pretty good sleeper and we have a couple nights here an there where you will go four hour stretches.  Some nights its every 2-3, so you definitely aren’t predictable yet.

You have followed in your siblings footsteps and seem to have reflux.  You are currently taking Prevacid which has seemed to help.  You are still fussy in the evenings, but I think that is just a bit of your personality. 

Your whole family loves you so much.  Your brother and sister want to be with you all the time.  Your dad and I are loving having a baby again and watching you discover the world around you.  You are such a wonderful addition to our family.  We love you!

Love, Mom
