I can't even believe our baby girl has been here for a whole month. It has gone by so crazy fast, and she's already changed so much! It makes me feel so sad that she's growing so quickly, but also so excited to experience everything with her.
This month, Violet:
weighs 8 pounds and 2 ounces
wears newborn size diapers and clothes
eats about every 2-3 hours during the day, and every 3-4 hours at night
is exclusively being breastfed and has been a great eater since day one
loves being held, her swing, car rides, music and being swaddled
doesn't like getting her diaper or clothes changed
makes us laugh daily with her silly facial expressions
The month it's been since Violet arrived in our lives has felt more like two days. Nothing has ever happened faster. I was looking at photos of her the day she was born and had no idea she's already changed so much. It makes me really want to soak in every moment with this tiny baby, like the quiet, dimmed light nursing sessions in the middle of the night, and how she always is happiest when she's being held and cuddled. I can't wait to see what month number two brings.
