Hello Charlotte at One Month

Charlotte was one month old this past Wednesday! I can't believe how quickly it's flown by. I was truly blessed with a wonderfully easy baby (knocking on wood right now). She currently weighs 8 lbs + 2 oz and is 20.25 inches long. At her last check up, she weighed 6 lbs + 5 oz, so we're super pleased with her growth so far, even if this peanut is only in the 19th percentile.

She is currently sleeping in 2 -3 hour stretches during the day in her Dockatot and sleeping 4 - 5 hours at night in her bassinet. Blessed is clearly an understatement as I've been able to sleep while she does. I've actually been sleeping more now than I slept in the last trimester of pregnancy. People joke that they see her way more asleep than they do awake.  She took to breastfeeding super quickly in the hospital and now I do a mix of nursing and bottle feeding with my pumped milk. Her biggest issue with eating is eating far too quickly. 

She is the queen of faces with her most famous being her grumpy face which I've been told is very similar to mine. It's just a lot cuter in baby form. She absolutely loves being in the car. Within moments of being put in her car seat, she will fall asleep. I like to think she recognizes the 80s music and Taylor Swift in the car from being in the womb. She's also a big fan of baths, but not getting her diaper changed. Girlfriend hates being cold and therefore hates any type of air blowing (fans, wind, etc).

This munchkin has spent this whole month in newborn clothing with an accompanying bow always. She is the greatest little model which makes taking pictures even more fun. We've also already started with the mommy and mini matching. You could say I've waited my whole life for this. She also made her appearance before the 4th of July, so I got to dress her up in two different outfits which was the dream. 

Being a mom is even better than I ever imagined. I frequently (every minute basically) look at her and feel so overwhelmed by how wonderful she is. This is what I was made for. She is the truest delight and the love of my life. I'd like time to slow down, so I can enjoy her little sounds and cuddles. I could go on forever about my love for little C, just like I could post 10,000 photos. My world has been turned upside down and I wouldn't change it for anything.
