Adelyn’s One Month Old!!

To say Adelyn is already one month old today just seems crazy! It’s hard to remember life without her. It has been an amazing month filled with love, learning, new life, and complete happiness! Adelyn makes being 1st time parents fairly easy! We are completely in love & overwhelming blessed by this little girl!one month1

Adelyn has made nursing a breeze! She is such a good eater, it’s pretty much like clockwork! She eats pretty close to every 3 hours during the day. Thankfully she does not spit up too much, maybe once or twice a day total! Adelyn doesn’t require her pacifier all the time, but if she gets a little fussy and it’s not time to eat yet it will help calm her.

After each feeding she is usually awake for 30-45 minutes and then will nap until her next feeding. She usually sleeps in her crib from 11pm/midnight – 6am/7pm each night. We’ve had a handful of middle of the night feedings, but for the most part she will sleep for 6+ hours!DSC00358

Not only us, but everyone who holds Adelyn cannot get over how strong she is! She is always trying to hold her head up. That being said, she does really well at tummy time & doesn’t mind it at all. She loves to kick her legs! Daddy says she’s going to be a runner!

She is a very content baby! Unless she is wet/dirty or hungry, she is happy! Lately not only is she more alert during the day, but she is starting to coo and make more little noises! I wish I was quicker with the video camera to get them captured on “film”!DSC00361

Since Adelyn was a good sized newborn baby (10lbs 2 3/4 oz, 22in long!) she has been in size 1 diapers since she was born! She wore a few newborn clothes, but they were never quite long enough for our baby girl! So for the most part she is wearing 0-3 mo clothes.

Speaking of diapers…we are so surprised at the noises our sweet little girl makes! She even had Daddy rolling on the floor laughing over the toots that sounded like they should have came out of Daddy, rather than this cute baby! Not only is she a tooting champ, she can burp with the best of them! I guess that means everything is “working” correctly! Smile

When Adelyn had her first bath at the hospital she screamed!! Thankfully every bath at home since has been the complete opposite! She does so well at bath time and I’m sure that will only continue the older she gets!DSC00360

She loves to sit in her bouncy seat, which Mommy loves! It helps me get a few things done around the house when she’s awake! Adelyn also likes her swing. We say she wants to go to the beach when we put her in it ‘cause it makes noise like ocean waves and has a little fish mobile! One day we will actually take her to a real beach! Smile She does so well in her car seat too! Adelyn loves going on walks. Surprisingly it doesn’t put her to sleep. She is bright eyed, content, & looking around the whole time! Our walks have been minimal these past few days though with this 100 degree heat we’ve been having. DSC00369

We are getting better about “outings’! At first it took us, what felt like, hours to get out of the house, but I think we’ve got it down now and I’m sure it will continue to get better! We’ve been out to eat twice, a few trips to Target & the grocery store, the hospital a few times (dr appts & visit friends), and one trip to Grandpa & Grandma Greene’s house. Adelyn does really well when we’re out! This weekend we will have our first overnight away from home!  

We love this little girl more than we could have ever imagined! We know she is going to grow up way too fast, so for right now we are enjoying each and every day with her!one month
