Emberly loves to eat but doesn’t take her time with it. We were blessed with a perfect latch from the beginning and after about the first week, she became quite the efficient and fast eater. She eats every 2-3 hours during the day and struggled to stay awake for a full feeding at the beginning. Since she hadn’t quite gained back her birth weight by her first pediatrician visit, the dr. put her on Vitamin D, and since then she’s been filling out quite nicely. I mean, just check out those arm and leg rolls! Around week 4 we introduced the bottle, which she took like a champ, and has no trouble going back and forth from bottle to mom.
Girl loves to sleep and will pretty much sleep through anything – trumpet concerts (thanks to the neighbor), Sunday morning worship, at the mall, in the car, etc. She takes several 2ish hour naps throughout the day and sleeps 2-4 hours straight at night.
You really are the sweetest baby. You pretty much only fuss when you’re hungry or have a dirty diaper. I love your little grin (even if it just means you’re passing gas or pooping) and whenever you open your sweet little eyes.
You had so many FIRSTS this month!
Your first Sunday at church you slept like a baby through the whole worship service and sermon.
Your first visit to the pediatrician you didn’t like being undressed, but you didn’t mind the Dr.’s poking and prodding.
You met SO many friends and family and charmed them all.
You loved your first bath and continue to enjoy it every night (as long as you’re fed).
You joined your dad & me on a date night on the Canal.
You and I had our first girls’ trip to Target & Starbucks and have had a few more since then.
You visited daddy at work and he enjoyed showing you off to all his coworkers.
You stayed with your first babysitters – grandma & grandpa Crisp – for a couple of hours and were pretty good for most of the time.
You went on your first road trip to visit your grandparents and great-grandmothers and were loved on by so many people.
Happy 1 Month, sweet girl!
