She is chubbing right up. Just how I like my babies. At that rate, she's probably well over 10 lbs. at this point. Possibly sneaking up on 11!
At one month old, she generally just eats and sleeps. Or sometimes fights sleep. This girl is the champion of the sleep-for-two-minutes-open-my-eyes-and-realize-stuff-is-happening-without-me-remain-awake-for-hours-more routine. But I'm sure she'll get over it. She generally sleeps pretty well between feedings & has fallen pretty easily into a eat every 3 hours or so routine. Last Friday night, we got a 6-hour stretch out of her! Yet to be repeated, but hey, I'll take it.
She loves her pacifier. She loves her big brother (and he is so sweet to her-- calming her, singing to her, stroking her head so gently I can't believe he's only 2!).
She loves when we whistle the theme song for the Andy Griffith show. I don't even know why I did it the first time, but she smiled when I did, and ever since then, well, let's just say if she's not digging mom's talking to her, then I can whistle a certain tune and almost always get some of these.
We sure do love you, Elsie-boo!
