Lily One Month

One Month Old!  I cant believe it!

Weight: 8 lbs 6 oz and 20.5 inches long.  She's finally growing like a champ.  These stats were from Tuesday (9/18) at her one month check up.  The doctor says all is well and we don't have to go back every week anymore.

Nursing is going way better!  We stopped supplementing formula and we are only giving her extra pumped milk maybe once a day when she still seems hungry after nursing.  She's not frustrated anymore on my left side (after a few days of always starting on that side she's learned to take to it just the same as the right).  This definitely makes all of our lives easier.  We've even had a few somewhat public nursing sessions and a few in the car while we are out and about.

Health: Great!

Diet:  100% breastmilk

Clothing: 0-3 month clothes are still big but haven't bought anything new and trying to get some use out of the cute summer outfits while its in the 80's this week.  One pair of her newborn pj's are gett…

Lily: The first few weeks

Our little girl will be 3 weeks old on Tuesday. It has definitely flown by.  I'm going to do my best to document this first year, but I'm not going to hold myself to weekly or even bi-weekly updates...when I have time and energy to blog I will.  Our first few weeks at home have been amazing, she is an angel (most of the time!).  We were lucky to have lots of help from family and friends whether it was cleaning, cooking or bringing us food.  Rollie's mom and my aunt were here for a few nights in the beginning while we were still in the hospital.  My mom was here for 2 weeks...it was so nice having the extra hand and more importantly than that sharing the first few weeks of her life together. My mom and Rollie were also able to tackle a few outdoor house projects which was really nice.  They power washed our deck, cleaned up the side & back yard and finished landscaping our front yard.

But on to Lily!
