Ada's 1st Month

We made it baby girl! The first month is the toughest. You are getting to know us and we are getting to know you. I would say we did a pretty good job and got through it relatively unharmed (your sister had a few pokes in the eye and bops on the head for you).

We are getting there with sleep. Overall, you are doing a great job for a newborn. You seem to wake up once or twice a night and give us decent stretches in between. We are still trying to figure out what to do when you want to party in the middle of the night.

You are such a pretty baby. Your hair is growing and seems to be a little lighter than it was when you were born. You have bright blue eyes and are very alert. You love looking around and watching your sister run around the house.

I have a feeling you will be rolling over pretty soon. You can already make it onto your side and a couple times have almost made it to your belly. Way to go, Ada!

According to your doctor, you are ahead of the game developmentally. This is fantastic news but it is also why you demand to be a part of the action. Because you sleep so well at night, you are well rested and don't want to nap. This also makes you incredibly alert which means no sitting back for you. Your doctor thinks this should all calm down in a couple of months when you can interact with Madelyn more. In the meantime, we will keep on keeping on.
