My how time flies!! Clark and I have loved every minute of life with Rose during her first month. During this month, Rose has started noticing the world around her. During her awake time she loves playing on her Baby Einstein activity mat, listening to music, listening to Mommy sing, going on strolls, riding in the car, studying people's faces, and taking baths. She actually likes getting her hair washed! I hope she will always like taking baths as much as I do.
Rose is still sleeping great! During the day, she takes naps anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours between feedings. At night, she usually goes about 4-5 hours between feedings. Last night, she slept in her crib for the first time. She ate at 8:30, went to bed around 10, woke up to eat at 2:45, and then slept until her next feeding at 6:45. I can't complain!!
We had a very successful 1 month check up. The most exciting part was learning that Rose weighs a whopping 10 pounds, 4 ounces and is in the 90th percentile for weight! She has gained almost 1 pound each week! That made me very proud because we got off to a rocky start and it is fabulous to hear that our hard work is paying off. She is 22 and 3/4 inches long.
This month, Rose has spent lots of time with her grandmother, Jannie. I can't thank Janet enough for helping us so much during the last 4 weeks. Janet calls me almost every day to see if I want to get out for a few hours and I have certainly been taking advantage of her offers! She loves spending time with Rose and Rose loves spending time with her! Thank you so much for everything you have done for us! We love and appreciate you so much
