One Month Baby

Rosie had her four week appointment this week and surprised us all by weighing a whopping 8lbs 9oz!!! It's average for her age, but a huge jump from where she was. We knew she was bigger since she couldn't fit into preemie diapers anymore, but didn't think she'd gained that much. Our midwife showed us how she ranks on the percentile chart and it looked kinda like the drawing below. Her line curving the opposite direction from the average lines!

A few things about Rosie:

-She likes to sleep on her side. But whenever she does sleep on her back, she makes sure to have her hands on her face.

-Purses her lips all the time, even when I’m burping her. So sometimes when she spits up, it’ll come out of her nose because she won’t open her little mouth! It’s so sad. Thankfully she’s learning how to use her body and it doesn’t happen as often.

-She loves to stretch. She arches her back and puckers her lips.

- She finally knows the difference between day and night and goes right back to sleep after her changing/feeding in the middle of the night. Hallelujah!

-She’s not very green friendly. She enjoys dirtying clean diapers immediately after we put a new diaper on her. She hasn’t grasped the “zero waste” concept yet.
