One month old

Kelsey is one month old today! She is so sweet! I love having a tiny baby again they are so cute and cuddly. Having a girl is so funny. Definitely way more fun to dress and shop for.

Eating: she is kind of in a transition right now but she is eating every 2 hours during the day on one side. Every 4-3 hours at night. She has a bottle of bm at 8-9 pm 4oz and sleeps 4 hours then wakes up 2 more times to eat on one side before waking up at 8 or 9 am.

Growth: she has outgrown mostly all of her newborn clothes and diapers. Super sad packing them up already especially since I don't know if we will ever have another kid in them. 

She will focus on our faces and recognizes our voices. She particularly pipes up for her brothers voices lol. She has smiles for mom. 

Play: during her wakeful hours she enjoys watching the ceiling fan, her brothers play and her ocean machine. She is content to lay and watch things in the morning for about an hour and then again at night for an hour with snippets in between. She loves to nap in front of the fireplace.( under close supervision  of course)

Sleep Routine: she seems to love routine so far and has adapted very smoothly to her crib. She loves sleeping in there with her ocean sounds and humidifier projector going. We give the kids a bath then jammies. Dad will give her a bottle while I get boys to bed then pump. He swaddles her and tucks her in. We usually read stories in her room all together but she is busy eating and settling down so we are reading stories in the boys room till she is older.
