Brielle's Development [1 Month Old]

Sweet baby girl is already 1 month old! Of course, time is flying... but I'm enjoying her and soaking up every minute with her. I'm so thankful that Sophie is transitioning so well to having a little sister!

So let's be honest... babies really don't do much in their first month other than eat and sleep, so there's not too much to note in the development category. She was 8lb 1oz and 21 inches long at her 3.5 week appointment, so she's gained some but is still a little peanut. She got her first bath, but that's not development- I do have to mention that she likes her baths much better than Sophie did as a baby, so I'm thankful for that!

She also has smiled a few times, but I haven't gotten any pictures of it yet, so I'll just post a picture of her sleepy smile because that's pretty cute too :)

She also is strong like Sophie was and has been lifting her head since the day she came home. If you hold her on your shoulder, she'll throw her head back a lot, so I have to be careful. She also turns her head from side to side during tummy time.

Otherwise, she is an excellent eater and nurses like a champ. She sleeps good at night and has consistently just been waking up once in the night to eat. She doesn't care for her car seat too much, but she does like to sit in our little rocker. Thankful that God has given us this little girl :)
