Charlotte Is One Month

Oh Charlotte, you are one month old!
(See also: we survived our "two under two" month!)


The day we brought you home from the hospital, we embraced this sweet new life of balancing newborn days with our crazy toddler days. It's certainly different this time around ... gone are the moments of just laying on the couch all day with a newborn on my chest. Thank goodness Charlotte doesn't know any differently. :) I do live for the moments when Camille goes down for an afternoon nap and I have that delicious hour to lay on the couch with Charlotte and just snuggle.



Speaking of snuggling, this is our true snugglebug. If you've met her, you know what I'm talking about. She is happiest when cuddled up against someone on their chest. She's been a cuddler since day one, much more than Camille ever was.
 
 

 



 At her one-month appointment, she weighed 10 pounds, 0.5 ounces and was 21" long with a head circumference of 38 centimeters.


  She's still nursing like a champ although we've had five or six episodes of projectile spitting up which I never experienced with Camille. The pediatrician is not concerned and said she's just a "happy spitter."

We introduced the pacifier at 3 weeks but have not yet introduced a bottle. She's still sleeping in the rock-and-play next to our bed, but after this weekend we're going to start the transition to sleeping in the crib in her nursery. And she does NOT like to be swaddled at all, which is really different from Camille. She will cry cry cry until her arms are free, so now I just swaddle her from the armpits down for sleeping.

She's still in size newborn diapers and size newborn clothes with some 0-3 month clothes starting to fit.

Here are the items we are loving! Excited to see what the next month holds!

  1. Well that sure was quick!! Tell is much more of a little snuggle bug than L has ever been- I'm LOVING it! He doesn't even like being held cradle style- he wants to be right up against someone when being held. ha He also seems to dislike the swaddles, whereas Lawter couldn't have been happier being snugged up tight. Second babes! Happy one month sweet Charlotte!

  6. What a beauty she is! Happy one month!! Have you tried the Halo Swaddle Sleep Sacks? If I remember correctly even the newborn ones allow for their arms to either be in, out or one in/one out :)

  11. So so precious! The second time around is so different since you can't just lay around all day with a newborn! Neither of my boys liked to be swaddled and Miller was a happy spitter. It was annoying but he didn't seem bothered by it. Just invest in a lot of oxi clean stain remover.

  12. Both girls are so precious! All 6 of ours hated being swaddled, too. We love and use halo sleep sacks, they like having those little arms free! :)
