My little Olivia is officially one month old as of yesterday! (This post was written 3 weeks ago, but I had to wait to add the pictures and then forgot about it, lol). I can’t believe how quickly the time is going! It seems like just yesterday that I was in the hospital in labour or going into surgery. The memory of my labour is definitely fading a bit though. It doesn’t feel quite so traumatizing, lol.
Weight: 10lbs, 9oz
Height: 21.5 inches
Milestones: Starting to mimic facial expressions! It’s the cutest thing in the world when I smile at her and she tries to smile back. She’s also started reaching and grabbing for objects. She successfully reached for and grabbed her stuffed zebra during our photo session yesterday! Olivia has also started discovering her hands and feet. She’s finally realized that they’re attached to her and that she can control them! She also has her first nickname courtesy of cousin Jenny, who’s taken to calling her “Livi.”
Tyler and I are so blessed with this little baby. She is such a little sweetheart. She’s so calm and sweet. She only cries when she’s wet or hungry and even then it’s usually just the start of a little cry before we can change her or feed her. She’s doing so well with breastfeeding and sleeping. She’s usually only up about once a night now at about 4am for a feeding and is back to sleep within 45 minutes. She then sleeps until 7 or so, nurses for 45 minutes, and then goes back down until 9:30 or 10.
Here are some pictures from our one month photo session!
