Layla is 1 month!

Layla is 1 month old today!

Honestly I'm not really sure how the weeks have gone so quickly. But here I am sitting down for a monthly shot into Layla's new short life.

We haven't done or gone many places this month but we have done a lot of this... sleeping. At least Layla that is. I've only managed to get a handful of naps. Naps are sort of non-existent for mommies that have other children. Layla had her first bath. She wasn't too happy about it.
We had lots of visitors this past month but one of the most special visits was from Layla's great grand mother. :)

The big sisters are always constantly asking to hold Layla. They LOVE her... sometimes a little too much.

While I do think Layla loves her sisters, she does sleep best when she is out of their reach. And to no surprise she sleeps wherever - the car seat, the swing, or the last place I set her down. Although she does love to snuggle. I spend almost every night once the big girls go to sleep just holding Layla. I can't manage to put her down. We have also posed for a lot of pictures.

And made new friends. (Lila is only 2 weeks older than Layla)
Oh and Layla loves her pacifier!
Layla also took her first bottle. And has had several since.
And is already out growing many of her itty bitty clothes... here she is in her "little sister" onesie that is already too small!!
And did I mention how much her big sisters adore her.
And finally she got to enjoy a real bath, which Layla loved! (the little fish washcloth on her body is the coolest thing!... perfect for her little body to keep warm!)
Happy ONE month Layla-bug!

Layla's 1 month stats:

Weight - 10 pounds 13 ounces (89%)

Length - 22 inches (81%)

Layla is right where she should be. She has grown over 2 pounds in the last month. The pediatrician joked that I must make chocolate milk.

Layla is a champ at breastfeeding. And thankfully she also takes the bottle with no issues (remember Emma never took a bottle!!)

She loves tummy time. In fact she normally falls asleep during it.

We just love her to pieces!!

Oh I just love this post!!! It makes me almost reconsider a third, in about 4 years :) You are such a good mama. I am so glad we got to meet her, even though it was brief. Love you!!! Snuggle that sweet one.

So glad it's going well. What sweet girls you have!
Emery never took a bottle either. One thing I plan to work on and introduce much sooner the next time around, God willing!
