You have blessed our life beyond belief! We love every second with you including when you are super fussy. I don't remember what my life was like before we had you. It is rewarding and incredible to be your parents! You are getting so big right before our eyes!
We love you to pieces!
Mommy & Daddy
The First Month of Hannah's Life:
Height & Weight: As of July 27th you were 7 lbs. 10 oz. so I'm sure you are almost 8 lbs now! You are also 20 inches long!
Sleeping: It varies! But for the most part you are sleeping through the night. We are sure lucky parents! We put you to bed around 11:30pm and you usually wake up around 6:00-7:30am. You love falling asleep on Daddy's chest! You are still sleeping in your Fisher Price Rocker and refuse to sleep in the bassinet. We have those few nights where you wake up around 4am to eat but it's very rare. Napping is a different story! You usually take 1-2 naps a day for around 3 hours each. You don't want to be put down to nap yet which makes things a little rough, but hopefully you will adjust soon. But when you nap you are usually out for a while which makes Mommy happy!
Eating: You are eating around 7-8 times a day and go 3 hours between feedings. Eating about a 4 oz. bottle of breast milk mixed with formula! We are looking to increase to 5-6 oz. within the next 2 weeks.
Your Hair: You have a ton of it! None of it has fallen out since birth, and we absolutely love it! It looks black, but if you look closely it's a dark brown color. Mommy loves putting bows in your hair!
Your Eyes: They are pretty dark, sometimes they look blue in the light but I think they are either brown or dark hazel.
Clothes: You are still so tiny and fitting into newborn clothes. But this week we are finally starting to wear our 0-3 month clothing!
Diapers: Wearing newborn diapers still, but may move you into size 1 today! Planning on starting to cloth diaper around the end of August.
Favorite Toys: You are finally starting to enjoy your your Luv U Zoo mobile gym! You get so excited when you see the toys that are hanging on it, and love staring at the bright lights. Other than that you are interested in your other toys yet.
Your Favorite Songs: Mommy started singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to you last night and you just stared! So hopefully that will help right now when you are fussy!
Nicknames: Daddy calls you princess and Mommy calls you Lovey or Hannah Banana!
Milestones: You are finally starting to smile!! Also today was the first time you didn't scream and yelp during Bath Time, so Mommy definitely considers that a milestone! Gaining weight was also a huge milestone for you because you were having trouble doing so. You are also becoming much more aware of your hands and feet and noticing that they are attached to your body. You are also starting to focus on people & objects especially Mommy and Daddy!
Happy 1 Month Hannah Grace!!!!
