Harper was 4 weeks old on Tuesday, and I was going to do this post then, but we didn't have internet all day Tues or Wed (yes I was going crazy). I can't believe it's already been a month or that I go back to work in a week and a half! Don't get me wrong, I am ready for some adult interaction, but I am not ready to leave my baby yet. Here is what Harper is doing at 1 month of age:
-she sleeps for 3-4 hours between feedings at night. I try to nurse her at 10 pm then she is up around 2 am then not again till 5 or 6 so technically I only nurse her once in the middle of the night which is great!!
-she is awake for longer periods of time now, sometimes she is content to just lay/sit and look around but sometimes she is high maintenence and wants to be held.
-she lifts her head up really well, it makes her look like a little turtle.
-she smiles at us
-she will take a pacifier (sometimes).
Ok so she's not doing much right now, but I know that will all change very soon, and honestly I can't wait. I love the baby cuddle stage, but I am ready for her to start interacting with us more. I know that there are so many fun times ahead as she continues to change and grow. Here are some (ok A LOT) of pics that I took of her today at 4 weeks of age, we had a little photo shoot!! Hey what else is there to do when you are on day 5 of being stuck inside all day?
She was starting to be over the whole photo shoot :)
I will post her one month stats after we go to the doctor on the 20th. I am so eager to see how much she weighs. I think her cheeks are really starting to fill out and she FEELS a lot heavier so I am excited to find out her weight. She is in size 1 diapers finally and some of her 0-3 month clothing is fitting and the newborn outfits are getting tight...so hopefully that means she is puttin on some lbs!!!!
