Happy birthday dear Juliet. Happy birthday to you ...yepppieeeeee!
(WARNING: NEW MOTHER GUSHING ABOUT HER DAUGTHER. PROCEED WITH CAUTION :))
Yep. Today is Juliets birthday. She is 1 month old :)
I have been getting all teary eyed latetly that the time has been flying and she is growing up so fast and never again will she this tiny. I am also excited she is growing healthy and soon the milestones will come and make me happy, but its a bitter sweet moment.
So anyways, she is about 20 inches, 9.5 lbs and just a bundle of joy. She is extremelly healthy and have no problems at all. How can we be so blessed is beyond me.
She is adorable at this young. She has this thing where she purs when she is sleeping. I was sure she was congested. When we went for her appointment, the doc said its just them learning how to breath. Her chest is absolutly clean. Its just normal. Well Scotty is always messing with her. He says she sounds like a pager on vibrate on top of a table...purrrrpurrrpurrpurrrpurrr. All night long. We have gotten so used to it, I will definetly miss it when it stops.
Another thing is, I was sure she was going to smile today. See, she only smiles once and that is at night right after she have eaten and burped, she will let out this huge smile and then pass out and the purring will start. She doesnt smile at any other time. Only at night. Today I was hoping she was going to smile since its her birthday and all, but nope no luck.I think she will just surprise me..lol.
I cant complain about anything. She is such an easy baby.
She is a good sleeper/eater. Sometimes she will sleep through the night (5 or 6 hrs straight), other nights she is up every 4 hrs on the dot. Also, during the day I bring her to the living room with us because I hate leaving her byherself. She is part of the family. So I will either bring her bassinet or she will be sleeping on her swing. Its unbeliveable how used she is to our house. Tyler will scream, the tv will be on, I will be vaccuming and even have the mixer on. Nothing fazes her. she will just keep on sleeping. Also when Tyler screams or throws a tantrum, she wont even startle or nothing. She will just open her eyes check things out and then go back to sleeping. I think she got used to it all while in utero..lmfao.
During the day, you can time your watch to her eating. She will be completetly passed out, as soon as that 4 hrs hit, she will be up whinning to eat. She doesnt really cry. I dont think I have seen a tear on her (Thank God). She will just whine louder and louder and start sucking on her hand when she is hungry.
She will eat anywhere between 4-6oz. Right now the avarage is 5. She will get mad for half oz. Its funny cause sometimes we will feed her 4.5 oz thinking its enough, well its not. She will whine then we give her more. She will eat her .5 oz and then pass out. She will also pucker up her lips when she is done. Too cute. I am completly smitten and in love. I thank God everyday for her. She is a pain in the arse to burp for me. She will eat in less than 20 minutes but take a while to burp. Sometimes its 4 am and I have done feeding her and will be sitting there patting and patting and nothing. Finally I am so exhausted and wake up Scotty. He taps for less than 20 seconds and out comes a huge burp. Absolutly unbeliveable. He has been so proud of the fact he can burp her better than me, I adore that he has that since he missed so much with Ty.
I havent decided yet when to do professional pictures. Right now she sleeps so much and its so young, I think I might wait until she is a bit older. We will see.
Well that is enough gushing for now :) I will update about her as time goes on.
I hope everyone is okay and not too frozen.
