Lyla: 1 month

Oh little Lyla...

A few days ago when I was thinking about this post in my head, it was quite different, because now the first thing that comes to mind on this 1 month birthday of yours is the fact that you are sick and it kills me to hear you cough.  I called the nurses to see if there was anything else we could do for you and of course they wanted you seen and of course it was pointless because it is just a respiratory cold that we are going to have to get through. 

Anyway...You WERE eating about 4 ounces every 4 hours, but went 5-6 hours at night.  Now you are eating about half of that, but maybe a little more frequently because of your cold. 
In the last week you outgrew newborn clothes and into the 0-3s from Irelyn that were shrunk from the dryer (side note: I hardly dry anything anymore).  But, you are very close to fitting into some of the 0-3s that are new/ not shrunk.   You wear newborn diapers, but we probably won't buy anymore and move onto 1s.  Since I took you into the doctor today we know you weigh 9 lbs and 15 ounces.  This is the 75th percentile!  That's little compared to what I am used to with your sister.
You are still a mellow and easy baby.  A lot different than your sister in personality.  And thank God you don't have reflux like she did! You rarely ever spit up.  (Really hope I'm not jinxing us).
I was thinking of moving you out of Mommy and Daddy's room to your crib this week, but then you got sick, so that is on hold. 
Sometimes, we swear you smile, but not sure.  If not, they are coming soon!  You are starting to "talk" and coo more and more. 
You sleep ALOT! :)
You are so easy to take places because you sleep well in the car, stroller, car seat, and loud places.
You take a pacifier to soothe you, but spit it out pretty quickly.
You like to sleep swaddled at night.
You like to be held when you sleep during the day and we need to work on that ;).
You are such a joy and a blessing and add so much to our family already!

 And lastly, a comparison.  First pic is Irelyn.  Second pic is Lyla.
