1 Month Update

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

Hey Jill, upon your request I am commenting! I love your blog because I get to see Baby Rose. She has changed soooooooo much in a month. You might not realize it, but she has really filled out. She is so precious and I can't wait to meet her in person. xoxoxoxo

Hey Jill! This is Lauren. I work with Janet. She has been showing us pics of Rosie and she's so adorable. Today she tried showing us pictures but said she didn't want to be obnoxious so I got the website and decided to look for myself. Anyway, congratulations! She's so beautiful. I know Janet loves speding as much time with her she can. She says she's going to try to bring her by to see us sometime, we would love it. I'll keep checking back for more up to date pics.
