Our girl is one month old! I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone by!
Some stats: At her last doctor’s appointment, she was 7 lb. 14 oz. and still 20.5 inches long. I think we are more at 8.5 pounds or so now.
She started out in premie clothes, but she is now solidly in newborn clothing. She also just moved up to size 1 diapers.
She’s eating 3 oz bottles like a champ every 3 or so hours during the day. She sleeps 3-5 hour stretches at night!
About 2/3 of the time, if we put her down to sleep when she’s drowsy, she will fall asleep on her own.
Some Remington facts: She LOVES rattles. If it makes noise, it’s great.
She loves the dogs. She likes when they are near her.
She HATES when her paci falls out.
Being bounced is her favorite, so I just got us a bouncer to try.
She sleeps well at night but daytime naps are short and we have to work for them.
She toots like a grown man.
She doesn’t love putting clothes on or riding in her car seat all the time.
Her favorite song is “My Shot” from the Hamilton Mixtape. She calms right down.
She hasn’t loved the baby carrier. I’m hoping that changes soon.
She sleeps swaddled in the bedside cosleeper by our bed and does great most nights. Her favorite setting on the sound machine is “Summer Nights” with the crickets chirping.
Right before she falls asleep, we get the sweetest smiles and a little bird chirp. It’s awesome.
She HATES the two minutes it takes to warm up a bottle.
She’s starting to smile back and respond to us.
Her nicknames include pumpkin, punkin head, princess poopy pants, Remi Roo, and big girl.
When she gets mad in her car seat, a paci and holding mama’s hands helps a lot.
She currently has her daddy’s hairline.
Her reflux is SO much better, but not gone. She has some sensitive skin bumps, but they don’t seem to bother her.
She loves bath time and tummy time.
The most common thing strangers say about her is that she’s so wide-eyed and alert.
I can’t believe she’s ours! She may be a bit spirited at times, but she’s the best thing we’ve done. I can’t wait to watch her grow. Momma is adjusting to these new hormones, new human to take care of, new routine and we’ve had some tough days…but it’s getting better. We are figuring this life thing out together.
Happy one month, baby girl!
