SJ – Month 1

02 September 2012|

Our little darling SJ was born in April 2012 but due to my blog only being up and running in the last few days, I’ve decided to back track a bit and recap her first few months for you… And then I promise to keep you up to date each month.
Month 1:

Weight: 3,94kgs
Height: 50,5cm
Clothing size: Newborn. She may not be small but so many of her newborn outfits are too big for her still.
Diaper size: Size 1
Feeding: 90mls (every 2,5-3 hours)
Sleep: She is a little angel sleeper – she sleeps in between every feed during the day for 1,5-2 hours. At night, she goes down at 7pm, feeds at 1am and 4am and then wakes at 7am.
Milestones: She is starting to focus on people now and is recognising mommy and daddy’s voices. She is starting to turn up the edges of her mouth to smile.
Loves: Baths, shiny things like TV’s and lights, Mommy and Daddy making funny sounds and pulling faces and tongues, cuddling people and the car.
Dislikes: Having her hair washed or brushed, and putting her arms through sleeves.
Adventures: No weekend adventures yet but we have been out and about quite a bit – shopping, meals, visits. 
Mommy and Daddy could not get through the month without: Each other. We have no idea how single parents do it! We work together 100% and take turns with all baby duties and feeds etc.
