Happy 1 month, Olive!

Has it only been a month? It seems longer. :)
Our baby girl is growing up.
She is changing right before our eyes and boy is she growing. She has already begun to wear 3 month clothes. Yikes. Maybe they run small. :D
I just love her!




Age: 1 month
Weight: 10 lbs. 1 oz.
Height: 21 3/4 inches long
Head circumference: 15 inches
Sleeping: She went through her 2 & 3 week growth spurts and that was rough for mama. She still nurses about every 1.5 hours. It can be exhausting.
She slept 7+ hours one night. It was heaven! Most nights she'll sleep 3-4 hours straight and then 2 hours after she is fed and changed.
Eating habits: Nursing. I've started pumping to relieve engorgement and she has taken the bottle a couple of times.
Favorite activity: Eating!
Cutest Moment of the Month: Snuggling with mama and smiling as she dreams.
Milestones:
Can lift head momentarily
Turns head from side to side when lying on back
Hands stay clenched
Strong grasp reflex present
Looks and follows object moving in front of them in range of 45 degrees
Quiets when a voice is heard
Cries to express displeasure
Makes throaty sounds
Looks intently at parents when they talk to him/her
Firsts: Bottle!
