Age: 1 month
Weight & Height: At my 1 month appointment I was 22.75 inches long and 12 lbs. 10 oz. Mommy and the doctor were very happy with my weight gain. I am in the 97th percentile of height and 99th of weight.
Things I enjoy: Being held and sleeping during the day. I like bath time. I love eating and I love it when mommy and daddy bounce me around on their shoulder.
Skills I've mastered: I'm getting better at holding my head up. I do it better when I'm on mommy's shoulder, but I also do it at tummy time. I'm also really good at eating! I rarely if ever spit up.
Looking forward to: Smiling at mommy and daddy on purpose.
Tough Times: Nights are tough. Mommy and daddy are learning when I cluster feed, they are learning when I am gassy and when i just need to be held. I normally have at least one 4 hour stretch at night and I'm hoping to get better and better. Sometimes when I cry, mommy and daddy don't know why I'm upset and that is a tough time too.
Exciting Events: I am going to be spending a few days with grammy and grandpop smith. It will be my first car trip and I think I'm gonna be great at it! I'm also looking forward to dressing up for Halloween with my big sister Emma!
