Temi: One month update

SaturdayMay 06, 2017

Our little cutie is a month now, how did time just fly by though? Its been a little bit of an adjustment getting used to having a baby in the house again and not getting much rest but, I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. She has changed so much within the last month, she literally is growing up by the minute and slowly outgrowing newborn size and on to the next.

EAT
Like I said she is gaining weight like crazy, and that is because she is a lil eating machine, constantly ready to eat. From the day she was born breastfeeding has been an ease and because of her eating so good it has really helped my milk supply. She was born at 7lbs 9oz, but at her last doctor's visit she is was 10lbs 10oz, her doctor said that she is feeding perfectly fine and this little lady is right on track with her weight gains and growth pattern. 


SLEEP
Sleeping is still quite the struggle I will be honest, but she is slowly getting a hang of this whole night and day concept. The first few weeks she was home, she would sleep through out the day an then at about midnight she would wake up and would be up for the rest of the night. Lately she will stay up a few hours out of the day, at least a good 45 mins stretch that she is up for during the day and then will take naps off and on during the day for about 2 hours stretches. Most nights I get a good 3 to 4 hours sleep out of her so mama is getting a little more rest (bags are reducing lol) She also loves to be carried, so my mother in law does spend most days carrying her on her back (African style) and we have been co-sleeping as well, because she just won't sleep on her bed for longer than 5 mins (hoping that changes soon)


PLAY 
She doesn't quite understand the concept of play and big sister does try to play with her, but because she staying up longer during the day we get to play with her and spend a little more face time with her. She also smiles quite a bit (I know she isn't really smiling with us, but we love the idea that she is lol)

  

Its been quite the month honestly, filled with lots of dirty diapers, cries but loads of baby love. I can't wait to see what other changes are to come with this little one.

  1. She is adorable! It's awesome she lets you have a little longer stretch of sleep overnight between freeds, that's always nice as you start to get a little of your sanity back, haha! The newborn days are behind me and I'm glad I get more sleep now, but those middle of the night feeds were always special :)
