Oh precious girl! You are such a light! This month you have grown so much. You are constantly changing and growing, like its right before our eyes!

Measurements: this month you have noticeably lengthened! You didn’t have an official appointment, but our at home measurements were that you weigh 16lbs, and are 25″ long!

Diapers: You were starting to soak through size 1’s at night, so we bumped you up to 2’s, which seem to be doing the trick. They are still a little big, but hope you’ll be in these a while.

Clothes: I am trying to keep you in your 0-3 months as long as possible, but some of them are starting to get a little short. I know in the next few weeks I’ll have to transition you to 3-6 months.

Schedule: Your schedule is starting to become a little more dependable. You wake up around 8-8:30, daddy feeds you, and we all hang out in bed once mommy gets home from the gym. You play for a bit, and then take a morning nap. Since we got you a new sound machine, your naps have been so much better! You wake, eat, play, nap the rest of the day. Your last nap is around 5, then we play a lot!

Sleeping: you are completely in your crib, now!! Unless you fall asleep before we notice, you even nap in your crib. You are swaddled, and have either ocean or rain sounds for naps, lullabies or Mozart for bedtime. I am so proud of the way that you have transitioned to the crib! I thought it would be much more difficult.

Meals: this month mommy officially stopped pumping milk for you. It was taking up so much time and energy for no production. You are eating around 5oz of Similac for Spit-Up 4 times a day, and 2 4oz bottles in the evening.

Favorites: you still love your play gym, though you only want to play on it on your back. You have also really fallen in love with the rocker that Aunt Debbie got you. Before you only used it to sleep in, but now you love to sit for hours and “talk” to the butterflies and snails.

Dislikes: tummy time. You will tolerate it for around 3-4 minutes. When we take your bottle out, or when you have drank it all.
