1 month old

On Sunday, November 6, Ava Kate turned a month old!  Where did this month go???  We are SO in love with her, she brings so much joy to our lives!
-I am not for sure how much she weighs but I am thinking over 9 lbs.

 -She has outgrown all her newborn clothes and is in 0-3 months. She wears a size 1 diaper.

-She definitely loves to eat!  This week, she started eating around 6 oz.  Now that she is eating that many ounces, she goes about 4 hours during the day and sometimes 5-6 hours at night.  I usually feed her before bed (if its not time for a feeding, I try to just give her a little anyway so she has a full belly) and then she usually eats sometime around 3am and then again around 7 or 7:30.

-She is a really good baby so far.  She is usually content for the most part.  She does have days where she wants to be held more. 

-She is still sleeping a good bit.  But her awake times are lasting a little bit longer.  She is awake for the longest stretch of time in the mornings and now she is starting to be awake more at night before bed.

-She is such a snuggle bug!  I could just snuggle with her all day. 

- She really loves to lay on your chest and her bottom to be patted!

-She prefers to sleep on her side rather than her back.  I am sure she she is able to roll over, she will be a stomach sleeper too! 

-She rarely cries but she grunts a lot! 

-She still has dark brown hair, blue eyes and a dark complection.  She has long fingers and the skinniest long legs!  She has pretty plump lips.

-She likes her pacie but I have noticed her thumb in her mouth a few times.  I just take it out and put the pacie in! 

-She really loves her bath time but she hates to be cold!!  So she is usually not a happy baby when she gets out of the tub.

She is such a great baby!  We love her so much!

I think they look a lot alike but they each have their own special characteristics too!
