One Month

My baby is one month old today!!! I seriously can't believe it- this past month has gone by SO FAST!! (I think in part because of how busy I've been-- I had my mom come up for a week after she was born, my little sister the weekend after my mom left, then we went to CA for a week, and now Kylee is back until Wednesday!) Whew! Here are some things I've learned about Camryn over the past month:

*She LOVES having her hands up by her face. Not really a problem, unless I'm feeding her, and then she uses them to push me away. Fun.

*Her nails grow SO FAST. I hate trimming them because I can only do it while she's asleep... and there are so many other things I'd rather be doing while she sleeps!!

*She loves to cuddle. She sleeps the best when I spoon her. Not my favorite thing, but I am far too tired to worry about crib training her right now.

*She takes forever to burp. No kidding, sometimes I have to wait 30 mins before she lets one out!

*She hardly ever poops!! I swear the kid has probably only pooped 6 times in her life. Not that I'm complaining or anything...

*She started socially smiling!!!! It is seriously the cutest thing ever. She started doing it occasionally around 3 weeks, and now she does it all the time. It is so fun!

*She is the slowest bottle drinker ever. It takes her about an hour to down one ounce!! (*Note: she is only slow when I give her the Nuk bottle... she sucks the Adiri bottle down in minutes!)

*She loves taking baths and having her diaper changed.

*She loves her swing... but ONLY if she is already in a good mood when you put her in it. If she's already angry, it just makes her more mad.

*She loves to be outside. Whenever she gets fussy we walk around our balcony and it calms her down immediately.

Camryn has been so much fun!! I couldn't ask for a better baby. Rich and I are so lucky we've had a reasonably easy transition into parenthood!

I'm so glad our babies are the same age! I just posted a "one month" post for Macy and read yours and it's WAY better! haha... I hate the nails growing so fast too! I just keep mittens on her all day :)

She is a good baby. I think for moms like us we have to have good first babies or we would never do it again! I can't wait to see you soon and compare my chunky baby to your petite one.
