My baby is a month old

Where does the time go? My sweet, little baby girl is already a month old as of Monday. It seems just like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. We had her 4 week check up last Friday & she is now up to 10lbs 6oz & 22 in. long. She is growing like a weed & loves to eat. During the day she eats about every 2-3 hours depending on how long she naps for. At night she will go anywhere from 3-6 hours between feedings. Which is nice. Last night she went to bed at 10pm & didn't wake up until 4am to be fed. Much needed rest for this Mama. She is starting to be more alert during the day checking things out. We can almost get a smile out of her when we act super silly, but not quite yet...she's still trying to figure out how to turn those lips upright. She will make noises every now & then when you are talking to her. She fills my days with so much happiness, I just love her so much! She loves to stretch out on her changing table & could lay there forever, she also loves to fall asleep in her swing. No more newborn pants, socks, or sleepers for this baby...her legs are too long & her feet are too big. She is filling out 0-3 month clothes nicely. It seems as if she changes every day! She makes my heart swell!

1 week old
2 weeks old

Matti is 2 weeks old & is more precious than ever! She is not a fan of taking a bath or changing clothes. She eats, sleeps, & pees/poops all day long:) At night she sleeps 3-4 hrs before needing to feed again! Her favorite spot to sleep is on Mommy or Daddy's chest! She loves resting in her swing & she's great in her carseat for rides. We love seeing her bright eyes during the day & Mommy makes all kinds of silly faces & noises to try to get me to smile! We have been so blessed with this beautiful baby girl! We can't wait to see her grow!
