Sarah Kathryn is ONE month old!

Sarah Kathryn is ONE month old today!  This month has really flown by.  I still look at you everyday with overwhelming joy.  I just worried the entire pregnancy so having you here with us is wonderful!  
(Borrowed all this from Casey's blog)

Doctor appointment:  We went today!
Weight: 8 lbs 11 ounces   50th percentile
Height: 21.5 inches   75th percentile
Head: 14.5    60th percentile

Clothes: You wear size 1 fact you came home from the hospital in size 1 because you are such a big girl.  We had a pack of new born diapers open so we used them, but you are in a 1.  We go through about 20 diapers a day due to your constant pooping!  It is starting to taper off now that you are a month old.  You wear mostly 0-3 month or 3 month clothes. The newborn stuff fits, but is small on you.

Eating:  You eat 15 minutes on each side about 8 times a day.   We started giving you a 2 ounce bottle a few days ago after your last feeding because you just weren't satisfied.  It is helping you sleep.  I decided today that I will stop breast-feeding TODAY!  When you weren't back to your birth weight until today and you are pretty fussy even after was time to throw in the towel.  Hopefully, we will all be happier!

Sleeping:  Dr. Crittell said we could go 5 hours without you eating 1 time in a 24 hour period.  We do that for the last feeding.  Daddy stays up with you so I can go to bed for a couple hours. Usually you do really well and sleep the 5 hours in your bed, swaddled.  It is amazing because my body automatically wakes up at the exact time you are supposed to eat.  I usually wake you up to eat.  You eat again 3 hours later and you may or may not have been asleep in your bed.  During the last feeding of the night..around 4-5am...I usually hold you so that we can both sleep. During the day your naps are in the car, bouncy seat, my arms, etc.  
I love this precious little face!!!
Likes:  being held, the bouncy seat, car seat, riding in the car, riding in the stroller, the nap nanny, eating, the paci (sometimes), baths, your brothers
Dislikes: getting dressed, having the paci shoved in your mouth by a brother, and hiccups (you had them all the time when I was pregnant)
Bennett thought she needed a bow so he went and grabbed one and put it in her hair! :)
News this month:  You've met lots of people and been lots of places.  You even went out of state to Texas last week to surprise Daddy for lunch!  People dote all over you and I love it.  
I love these 3 so much!


  1. She's such a pretty baby, but the boys are also pretty boys! Maybe she will be more satisfied and not be as fussy.
    My little granddaughter was a very fussy baby until she was past 2! However, when she came out of her grumpiness, she was like a different person. Now she is the happiest child. So there is hope. LOL

  2. She is such a pretty baby! Love all of her faces. I love your monthly stickers too!


Thank you for the comments! They make me happy!
