Stella Monroe :: 1 month ::

 Miss Stella - How in the world did I give birth to you a month ago? Times goes by so fast! You are such a good baby and quite the little sister to your bigs who love you  I think we all want to kiss your chubby cheeks 100 times a day!

- 1 week and a day ago you weighed in at 9 lbs 7 oz so I'm going to guess you are close to the 10 lb mark now.
- You measured in at 20 inches

- You are wearing a mix of newborn and 3 months. 3 months is still a bit big, but the newborn stuff is pretty tight except for a thing or two. 

- You are wearing size 1 diapers

- You sleep really well and have only had a few rough nights. This past week you have slept about a 5-6 hour stretch and then another 3-4 hour stretch. Normally you get up around 3:30 and back to sleep by 4. 

- You sleep in your crib at night and we have been trying to get you to take at least 1 good nap in your bed. Today you slept for 2 1/2 hours in your crib.

- You are nursing about every 3-4 hours. 

- You actually take bottles easily and like the paci so far. Will you be our first kiddo to actually use one?
- Gross motor wise you are still rolling over. I'm not sure if I mentioned this before but around 9 or 10 days old she rolled over for the first time. Thinking it was just a fluke, sister has done it every day since just about. Once night she did it 6 times. So... while it seems crazy, I guess my baby is rolling over from tummy to back.  

- You have really good neck strength for a 1 month old when doing tummy time.

- You don't really track well or follow our voices well, but I'm sure that'll change soon!

- Around 2 weeks old you got baby acne and still have it!

- Hair wise - you still have light, light brown hair and blue eyes. I'm really hoping your blue eyes stay.

- We are still unsure who you look like. I see more Lyla in your than Cohen but daddy sees more Cohen.  As much as I DO NOT want you to grow up I am excited to see if you look like either of the two!

-You had a blocked tear duct when you were born but it cleared up around 3 weeks thankfully!

- Nicknames for you include Stelle Belle, smelly Stelly, punkers, chunky punky, sisterella, Stella baby and Stella girl!

I'm not really sure how I want to document your monthly pictures so I decided to do them 2 different ways! A chair picture like we did with the other two but then also of you in your crib. I LOVE your nursery so I want to document you growing up in there!

- You look so tiny in there!

Happy 1 month, baby girl!
