Rylin: One Month.

{Somehow I find myself writing this blog, ALREADY! How has time passed so quickly??}

Our pretty little thing is ONE MONTH. 

Stats: No official stats, we will go back to the doctor for your two months. I feel like you are pretty long though. At two weeks you were 7lb. 6oz. and 20 1/2 inches. Excited to get exact numbers and percentages next month. 

Firsts: Everything!! First sponge and regular bath at home. First trip to Huntsville and Birmingham. First time meeting all sorts of family. First bottle. First time away from mom for a long-ish (like over 6 hours!) time. First smiles- nothing on demand though. First tummy time.

Milestones: Umbilical cord stump fell off, sleeping in the pack-n-play for one nap and night time daily, outgrowing some outfits {So sad :( !}, eye and head control improving!

Food: Breastfeeding round 2 for this momma... and boy does that make a difference! We had our fair share of struggle moments in the hospital and at home too, but you are pretty much doing terrific. You are now eating around every 2 hour 20 min during the day and then usually around 1 and 5 am. Of course I'm ready for you to start stretching them out a little more but in reality I know you are doing great :)

Sleep: Definitely no schedule quite yet. You are a wonderful go with the flow little girl though. You sleep quite often. Trying to have you swaddled once for a daytime nap and then around 8-8:30 for bedtime! 

Our days: Hard to say at the moment. But typically you sleep while me and Cameron eat breakfast and then I get you up and feed you around 8. We lounge around or all get ready for the day and you watch and take everything in. I feed you again and we usually go play outside with Cameron before lunch. I put Cam down for nap and then feed you. I'm trying to get this time to be a hardcore nap for you and then I feed you again right after Cam wakes up. Dad comes home and we usually play outside some more before I feed you again sometime around dinner. Then we usually all play upstairs and we put Cam to bed then I feed you and lay you down. You do cry, off and on... really barely any, before settling down and going to sleep! Of course you are sleeping on and off all through the day too. 

Favorites: Mommy loves rocking you and snuggling with you to make you happy. Daddy loves that you have started sleeping better at night!

Rylin, you are truly the perfect addition to our family. I have so much joy from being yours and Cameron's mommy. Cameron adores you and loves to give you kisses. He is usually pretty gentle but sometimes gives you a little head-but :) I'm so excited to see your little personality come out! You are a very sweet, wonderful baby. Everyone asks how it's going with a new baby and I tell them you are such a great, easy baby! Thanks for that sweet thing! Keep growing strong and big sweet little girl.
