One month old little Zoey


headband: Elle Bowtique
One month stats
Holding your head up pretty good when laying on our chest-- you get kinda crazy on us and still don't have full control like you think you do.

Won't take a Paci, you gag on them and only on special occasions will take them while in the car seat.

You grunt like no bodies business! You know exactly when it's bed time because the grunting tends to start when I lay you down in the bassinet at night. Slightly easing up a bit during the night!

You seem to be growing faster than Lexi did. You are slowly fitting into some 0-3 month clothes but you are mostly just in newborn.. I'm thinking by next month you will outgrow newborn.

You are strictly breastfed, I have gotten my milk under control and no longer have to pump the excess.

I change a million poopy diapers, and almost always after I change your diaper you dirty up the clean one.

Your feedings average around 10 minutes. As short as 4 and longest one has reached 30 minutes.

You only cry when you are hungry it seems or when you just want to be held. You are still sleeping majority of the day but definitely have alert time frames.

At 3 weeks you started grasping things with your hands and trying to focus on objects and faces.

Bedtime starts at midnight, I try to keep you on my hours :)
We let you hang out with us in the living room and I normally do my last feed for the night around 11:30/midnight and then we go to bed.. The past couple of nights you have given me longer stretches 4+ last night and almost 5-6 the night before. But majority of the time you are on every 3 hours.

We went for your 1 month check up today,
You are still looking like a healthy little baby.. I finally got the confirmation from test results that you DO NOT have cystic fibrosis! Seriously such good news.. it something I always kept in the back of my mind ever since we found out 4 months ago that me and Tyson were both cystic fibrosis carriers. (It gives all of our children a 25% chance that they could have cf)

You are weighing 8 lbs (16%) 20" tall (8%) Head: 13.5 (3%)


Helpful Apps I'm loving:
Sleep Bug: White Noise Soundscape (free) - use this at bedtime for her
Baby Feeding, Sleep & Diaper Tracker by Mom Mobile (it's green) -- I use this to keep track of her feedings
