How in the world is this sweet girl one month old already?! She is so alert now and starting to show signs of becoming big..already! One night this last week she had a 5-1/2 hour stretch of sleep. It.was.glorious. She reverted right back to every few hours the next night, but still, I was so proud of her. She is starting to get the hang of burping after feedings too. I think this may have been a source of some tummy issues the first few weeks. This month has just flown right by. I'm trying to soak it all in, knowing that I will likely never have a newborn again. This stage is so wonderful and snugly. I love all of the time that I am able to just hold her. It is so so special.
She is loving being on her tummy throughout the day. If sleep is rough at night this week we may try tummy sleeping then, too. I am going to setup and appointment with her pediatrician this week to check her out for torticollis. She shows some favoritism to her right side, but I'm not too worried about it. I just want to make sure since Jude and my nephew had it. I would rather catch it early while it's correctable. She has been talking a bit more this week. She makes a lot of sweet little sounds, grunts and sighs throughout the day.
The boys continue to love and adore her. They are always wanting to be around her and softly touch her head. I believe she loves them too:).
This month as a family of five has been wonderful. Hattie makes us complete, and we all just love her so much. I am thankful that we are getting into more of a routine and really finding out what this being a family with three children really looks like.
