Sophia is One Month Old!

Sophia, you are one month old!!

How has the last month gone by so quickly? You have already changed so much. It has been so fun just getting to know you. You already have such a sweet personality.

You are a good sleeper. You usually go to bed between 9-10pm, and wake up once to eat around 5am. After you eat, you go back to sleep and sleep until around 9:00am. Right now your daddy and I rotate nights getting up with you.

You are eating really well too. You are eating 4oz. of formula every four hours. Occasionally you will take a little more than 4oz. and I can tell that you'll be eating 5oz. soon. Aiden started getting rice cereal in his nighttime bottle around 6 weeks old, so I might start that with you soon too.

You had your first sleepover at Grandma's house this month! Your big brother was pretty jealous. Your Daddy and I missed you while you were gone, but it was nice to get a full night's sleep. Plus, I know you and Grandma enjoyed the bonding time together.

At your two week doctor appointment you weighed 7lbs 7oz (4oz up from your birth weight). You were also 19.5 inches long (.5 inches up from your birth length). You go back to the doctor when you are two months old.

You are getting so close to smiling! You smile a lot in your sleep, and you have smiled randomly when you are awake. It won't be too much longer though before you start smiling at us! You have such a pretty smile, I can't wait to see it more often!

A few nights ago you laughed out loud in your sleep. It was the cutest thing! It scared your Daddy and I because it was totally unexpected.

We are still undecided as to what color your eyes are. We were thinking brown, but sometimes they look green. They don't seem to be as dark as Aiden's or Jenny's. Your Daddy was just telling me today that he doesn't think your eyes are brown. They're more of a hazel color, inbetween brown and green. We'll just have to wait and see!

You love to be held and you love to be talked and sang to. You are so alert, and really seem to be listening when someone is talking or singing to you.

I'm pretty sure you are going to be a Daddy's Girl! He already spoils you, and adores you so much. You usually start out sleeping in your crib (which is in our room) every night, but somehow always end up in our bed. I'm pretty sure I know who is putting you there! ;)

Your big brother and sister both love you so much! Aiden has had a hard time remembering to be gentle with you, but he is getting better. He loves talking to you and showing you all of the cool things he can do. He also likes to make funny faces at you. Sometimes he says you made a funny face back at him. Jenny has already been such a big help with you! She is really good at talking to you and keeping you calm while I make you a bottle. She wants me to bring you to meet all of her friends. There are only two weeks of school left, so we will have to take you to eat lunch with Jenny soon.

You are such a joy, and have been the perfect addition to our family! We love you so much!

-Mama & Daddy
