1 month

Oh baby girl! I can honestly say this is the fastest 4 weeks of my life. I thought time flew by when your brother was a baby...I was WRONG. It's crazy to me that you have been a part of our family for a month now. It's so fun being a family of 4. We are slowly learning what we have to do to get places on time and how to look presentable. I am almost in the habit of not leaving the house without a bow on your head. Ha! This is new for me but you look so cute with it I just can't imagine anyone seeing you without it. (Don't get me wrong you are pretty cute without it too!)
You have the best big brother in the entire world. I can't believe your Daddy and I ever even worried about him. Well, I can believe it but still...he loves you so much. There isn't a day that goes by where he doesn't ask to hold you. He gets the biggest smile every morning when he hears your first little scream fuss from your bedroom. He loves putting your pacifier back in your mouth and he enjoys feeding you a bottle.

Speaking of aren't a very good eater yet. You love food you just struggle getting it in your tummy. We had to go to 3 weight checks the first few weeks of your life. ;( Nursing was pretty painful for a while but we hung in there (after many tears and sleepless nights) and are doing pretty well now. You prefer to breastfeed over the bottle which doesn't bother me a bit. I am trying to enjoy these special moments with you because I know how fast it goes.  You also HAVE to be burped and you do it so ladylike that's for sure! ;) There have been a few times you have eaten so fast you spit up the entire amount you just times!
You are a paci baby FOR SURE. Your brother loves his too but didn't for the first few weeks of life. You came out sucking on your hands and were sucking on your fingers pretty much every picture we ever had of you in the womb. You love the paci they gave us in the hospital and won't take anything else. I guess this is a good thing because you and your brother won't get yours mixed up. GERMS...yuk! LOL!
We haven't really started much of a schedule yet, due to the lack of weight gain and the eating issues we are still just working on getting your belly full. You LOVE being held! You have spent lots of time in the Moby wrap and I love it. This is something I wish I would have done more with your brother so because of that you are getting double the dose. Ha! Also until today if I go somewhere with you and your brother alone I haven't really had a choice. We have a double stroller but your brother doesn't want to give up "his seat" so we are waiting on a special piece to be able to attach your seat on the stroller. ;) Oh well...I am sure it's just the beginning of many wonderful selfish things your brother will do.

Sloane-we love you so much. No one can get over how much you "look like your brother but just a little more petite and girly." I look forward to watching you grow.

At your 1 month check up your stats were:
7.12 lbs (12%)
21 inches long (47%)
-healthy growing girl


I always love what you'll have to say...thanks for stopping by!
