One Month Old!

Yesterday, baby Cassandra turned one month old already! It's hard to believe she's been here a month already-seems just like yesterday I was going through the labor from hell to welcome this little peanut into our lives!

She still seems much smaller than Avery was, although she is getting bigger! Some newborn stuff is starting to get snug on her now and she's filling them out more these days. She's still in newborn diapers at this point, but I have a feeling she'll be out of those in the next few weeks as well.

She's nursing well and eats every 2.5-3 hours I'd say.

I've sort of gotten her on a routine during the day of eat-"play"-sleep. After I nurse her, I change her diaper to wake her up and then she'll stay awake for an hour or two then fall asleep. She'll wake up again when she's hungry. If she hits the three hour mark, I usually wake her and try to feed her. She's pretty content most of the time-she fusses when she's hungry and tired. She still loves to suck herself to sleep but doesn't really enjoy the pacifier-she prefers our baby finger instead which makes like difficult at times!

She's been doing pretty well at night too-usually wakes up 2-3 times to eat on average. She's had a few nights where I'll feed her at 8:30 and she'll go until 2:30 before eating again. Unfortunately I don't get to bed until around 10 at the earliest (because of Avery's sleep issues), but a 4 hour stretch of sleep for me is still good! After that, she'll go 3-4 hours before eating again. So the past few nights I've gotten between 6-7 hours of sleep which is good!

Here are Cassandra's one month photos:

These are my favorites-she was getting so excited when I was talking to her so she was kicking away when I took these which made me laugh!

And for something to laugh at, here are Avery's one month pics! (Man, they look different!)
