Eleanor Is 1 Month Old!
1 month…1 whole month! I can’t believe my little bird is a month old already. I thought time flied when Lucas was a newborn but that’s nothing compared to how fast this month flew by.
The big news in our house is how well Eleanor sleeps! Lucas was not the best sleeper and would wake up every 45 minutes-1 hour during the night to either eat or hang out. I had days where I would be too tired to drive and others where I couldn’t even see straight. Eleanor is a dream and slept 7.5 hours straight last night. Yup, she slept through the night (10:30pm-6am)! Can you believe it? We had her monthly doctor’s appointment last Friday and I asked the doctor if I had to wake her to eat during the night because she is so little. The doctor said absolutely not and enjoy the sleep! YAY!
1 Month Rundown:
Height: 22 1/4 inches
Weight: 9 lbs, 14 ounces
Likes: Sleeping, being held, being warm, watching Lucas, eating, stroller rides, the car seat and sitting up.
Dislikes: Diaper changes, baths, having her clothes changed, being disturbed while she’s sleeping and loud noises.
As for me, at 10 days postpartum I was back at my pre-pregnancy weight. A bout of the stomach flu last week has left me 6 lbs under my pre-pregnancy weight but still about 10 lbs above my happy racing weight. I still have lots of toning to do in the midsection and can’t wait to start ab work when I get the all clear.
Everyone always says that each pregnancy is different and so is each child. How right they are! Breastfeeding with Lucas didn’t work out so well and he ended up on formula only by 4 months. At that time he was barely getting an ounce of breastmilk a day and he never latched on. Eleanor is being only breastfed and is a a champ at latching on. She latched on right after being born and we’ve never had an issue. No visits to lactation consultants or any other problems. I’m shocked at how well it’s going, like really shocked. I’ve read many stories about babies not wanting bottles so I’ve pumped a bottle a day for her to have since her 1st week. I don’t want refusal of a bottle to ever be an issue for us.
Month 2 here we come….January 14, 2014
