One Month

Dear Sweet Faegan,

I cannot believe that you are already one month old. Time has flown by and we are blessed beyond words to have you here with us. I am a little sad you are already growing up! You are the sweetest baby in the world. You rarely cry and when you do, it's because Mommy and Daddy missed your hints and you are reminding us to pay better attention! You love to snuggle and I have to tell myself that I can't hold you all day long. You feel so good!

You are eating like a champ and we both think you have gotten a little chunky over the past couple of days. We weighed you on our scale last night and it said you were 9 pounds! That is a big difference from two weeks ago when you weighed 7 lb 6 oz at your two week checkup. During the day you are eating every 2-3 hours. Your last feeding is usually around 8:30 and you go sleep your longest stretch after it and sleep until around one o'clock and wake up again around four  When you wake up at night to eat, you don't cry, you just grunt and move around until you break your arms free of your blanket. You go right back to sleep after your one o'clock feeding, but lately you have been wanting to socialize after your 4 o'clock feeding. If you don't go to sleep your Daddy takes charge and lets one tired mama sleep for a little while longer. 

You love to be on the go. You usually fall asleep when we are in the car. We went out to dinner for your Daddy's birthday and you slept the entire way through. Everyone at the restaurant was so impressed with how well you behaved. You also love to be outside. You were fighting sleep yesterday so I took you outside in your bouncer and sat you in the shade. You looked and looked until you finally went to sleep and slept for two hours! 

You are taking a bath in the big (for you!) bathtub and you love bath time. However, you do not like lotion time. You enjoyed your first bath so much that you graced us with a nice surprise just as we were getting ready to take you out. Needless to say, you had two baths that night!

We are still swaddling you at night and you love your paci. We don't give you a paci during the day much, but you like to have them when you are going to sleep. We just got some new ones that Mommy loves and you seem to like them too.

You are still fitting in your newborn clothes but you are going to outgrow them in the length before too much longer. I have started putting some 3 month things on you, but they are all a little big. Not too much longer and you are going to be growing out of those too! 

We are so blessed to have such a wonderful daughter. We love you so much and thank God every day for a happy, healthy, beautiful baby girl. We love you!

Mama and Daddy
