Karlie Mae, you are one month old! I’m glad that you came a month early so that we could spend that extra time with you.
During the day you eat every 2 to 3 hours. Our nights vary. Some nights you will eat every 3 hours. Some nights you will go 5 hours or longer before you are ready to eat. You really don’t cry in the middle of the night. You lie in your bassinet and start making grunting noises. After you eat, you tend to go right back to sleep. Some nights you will fuss for less than a minute because you really want to be in the bed with mom and dad. You are the biggest snuggle bug! You sleep best when wrapped up tight in a swaddling blanket.
You have been great at nursing since day one! We only supplemented for a few days in the hospital when they were worried about you being so small.
You are very petite. Most of your 0 to 3 month clothes are too big. You have outgrew your preemie diapers and sleepers. You are wearing newborn diapers.
You love bath time. Mommy is still giving you a bath in the kitchen sink and loves doing it. It is the cutest thing. You are totally content the whole time. The first two weeks you would get a little fussy at the end, but just because you were getting cold. Now that the ole belly button stub is gone, you enjoy being down in the water. Kendall and Kate love to help with your bath!
Speaking of your sisters, they love you so much. I knew they’d love you but I didn’t realize how much. They are constantly talking to you, and watching you.
We love you so much. You have been the perfect addition to our family.
