1 Month Old

Here we go again!  

Addison Leigh turned one month old yesterday.  Weighing in at a whopping 11 pounds and 1 ounce (91%), she has gained 3 pounds and 9 ounces in her first month of life.  What can I say?  Girlfriend likes to EAT!  She nurses every 2-2.5 hours during the day and every 3-3.5 hours during the night.  She has also grown 1.25 inches since birth (from 21" to 22.25" {93%})  We had to stop using Newborn size clothes and diapers around 3 and a half weeks old due to her rapid growth!  I am so happy she is healthy and growing.

A lot of the time she is calm and sweet, but she also does her fair share of fussing.... and she screams MUCH louder than Hailey did.  I have a feeling this one is going to be our "diva"...

When she is awake, she enjoys laying on her back and kicking around, and she is already doing really well with tummy time.  She also likes baths and we've been known to use them to calm her down during her semi-frequent evening crying spells.  She is happiest when she is eating or being snuggled nice and tight :)

She likes to be swaddled during the day to help her fall asleep, but strangely enough she doesn't care for the swaddle at night.  She doesn't care for pacifiers either, which is a tough one for me because I think it would help hold her off a little bit during the day so she could make it to 3-3.5 hours between feedings instead of her average 2.  I'm going to keep trying with the pacifier until she takes it - I'm determined! 

Look how quickly I changed and grew in 4 short weeks!  

Here are some more of my favorite pictures from Addison's first month:
