Avery's 1st Month

Avery is currently asleep so I'm going to try to catch up on some blogging! Yippee!

Sweet Baby Girl - You are one month old! Already you are growing and changing. Mommy and Daddy are growing and changing too! Learning how to function on short snaps of sleep is our newest accomplishment. :) You on the other hand are functioning very well.

1st Month Milestones - 6/4/10

Height - 19 3/4 inches
Weight - 7 lbs 12 oz
Sleeping - you sleep about 2 hours after eating and playing during the day and will go for 4 to 6 hours at night. Mommy loves the 6 hour stretch! You have been sleeping in Mommy and Daddy's room so far and love your sound machine.
Eating - you eat every 3 hours during the day and go for about 4 to 6 hours at night.
New discoveries you made - Mommy and Daddy's faces. I know you can only see a little but you do seem to respond when we talk to you. You are so alert and watch everything that goes on around you (we think!).  You like to sit in your bouncy chair.
New accomplishments - You smiled! Right about when you turned 1 month, you smiled at us. You do it all the time now. And we are pretty sure it isn't gas!
Places you went - We took you to Nonna and Poppa's house in Oklahoma for your first road trip. Uncle Daniel was having his bachelor camping weekend, which Daddy went to, so you and I stayed with Nonna and Poppa. You got lots of loving while there!
Special Memories - You had your first prescription when you were 2.5 weeks old for a clogged tear duct. A few days later you were all better!  You also have been a little colicky but thanks to Gripe Water, most of the time you calm down. We hate not knowing what is bothering you and not being able to soothe you.

Avery Marie - you have been such a blessing to me and Daddy in your first month. You changed our lives forever. People told us what it would be like to be parents, but wow! We were so green (and still are) when we brought you home, but thanks to God, and lots of support from all your family and friends, we made it. Can't wait to see what the next month brings! Love you baby girl!
