Taylor is 1 month old already! Can you believe it?
We had fun doing a little photo shoot this morning. I can’t get over how much she’s changed since her newborn pictures were taken.
The past 4 weeks have been a dream come true. I have enjoyed every moment that I’ve spent with my little Taylor. Even when I’m tired and have puke dripping down my shirt, I am still so happy to be caring for her.
I knew I wanted to be a mom, but I had no idea how much I would love it. I knew I was going to love my child, but I am blown away at how much I love her. I don’t think any thing can prepare you for how much you will actually love your child.
It has been so much fun watching Taylor grow. I swear she changes right before my eyes! She’s so alert now, she gotten much longer, and is very strong. She enjoys tummy time and can move her head from side to side. She even rolled over once, but I’m sure that was by accident.
She is a really easy, sweet baby. She goes with the flow and can sleep and eat anywhere. She loves to nap in her Boppy seat, and loves the outside, so we go for daily walks.
1 Month Stats:
8lbs. 7oz. (26th percentile)
21” long (50th percentile)
head circumference: 14.75" (64th percentile)
Taylor still wears newborn clothes. Her 3 mo. clothes are huge on her. She wears newborn or size 1 diapers; either will work. She sleeps pretty well at night. She will sleep in 3 to 6 hour stretches at night. The hardest thing has been listening to all her grunting and gassiness at night. It seems to be improving some now that I am keeping better track of what I’m eating.
Taylor just loves laying on her Daddy’s chest and napping. They are so cute together. Josh is a very attentive and hands-on Daddy. She also resembles him and his Dad a lot. I really don’t see any of me in her. Maybe my chin, but that’s about it so far.
I am loving this stage in Taylor’s life, but I know it just keeps getting better!
