One Month of Abbi

Since we did all the “months of Lilli” I wanted to do that for Abbi too, but need to get cracking on the one month before I ever forget what she was like then, especially since we’re halfway to month two today!

Abbi was one month old on February 18th, 2013.  We weighed her to get an estimated weight, and she rocked the scales at 8 lbs 4 ounces – up quite a bit from her birth weight of 6 lbs 1 ounce!

At one month old, you wear primarily Newborn size clothes with a few of the smaller 0-3 month sizes thrown in.  You wear size Newborn diapers, but they’re getting snug and we’ll be going up to size 1 very soon since you can really blow a dirty diaper out of the water.

You still eat a combination of breast-milk with supplemental formula, and you usually eat 4 ounces every 3-4 hours.  At night you usually have a first stretch of about 5 hours, sometimes 6.   Most of the time we put you down for bed around 11 and we get up around 4 or 5 am.  We don’t have a very strict schedule, but we do stay on the 3-4 hour routine.  You rarely spit up (thankful for that!!) but gas can give you some issue so we’re watching for signs of lactose intolerance.  Considering I’m the only lactose tolerant person in the house, it would be nice to have someone to sneak out for ice cream with me.

You are starting to have your first “real” smiles and a decent amount of them are for your sister who loves to smother you with her love and affection all the time.  She is so very proud of you and loves to help give you a pacifier or state the obvious when you’re crying.  Nine times out of ten she is the person who accidentally woke you up when you’re asleep.  Get her for that when you’re older, she deserves it.  She just can’t help her excitement over you, and it still hasn’t worn off yet.

Major milestones for this month include being born (yeah!), getting out of the NICU and coming home with us (double yeah!!), moving to the new house, celebrating Lilli’s 4th birthday, and your First Valentines Day.

Overall, you’re a sweet little baby who has completed our family and we look forward to many more months and years with you, “Little Bit”.
