one month old ... and more
Amelia turned one month old on Friday, immediately offering yet another sign that she was getting older: She slept a 3 1/2-hour stretch Thursday night. Considering that you can almost set a clock by her 3-hour wakeups, this was a (welcome)change.
Of course, Ray volunteered last night to wake with her for her first feed of the night. We went to bed at midnight. Amelia should have woken at about 3 a.m. Instead ... she slept until 6 a.m. Which was still nice for me, since I then got an eight-hour stretch of sleep. But still. I know when I return to overnight duty tonight, she's going to wake up every three hours again. Funny girl.
Anyhow, she is one month old. She is getting bigger and more alert. We moved her from newbporn-sized diapers to size 1. But she remains in newborn-sized clothing. 0-3 months is still way too big (newborn-sized pants still fall off her non-existent baby bottom.)
She has a myriad of expressions, including her brilliant baby grins (which I have yet to capture "on film" but I am trying.
Not to be outdone, her big sister has been proving, too, how precious she can be herself.
I love my girls.
