1 month

Miss Eleanora recently turned 1 month old.  Her 1 month appointment was not scheduled until September 8th (@ 5 weeks).  So the numbers are a little skewed, but here are her 1month stats.

Height: 21 inches (50%)
Weight: 9 lbs. 1 oz. (50%)
Head Circumference: 14.25 inches (10%)

She is officially out of newborn size clothes and has now moved on to 0-3 months.

Over the last few weeks she has developed a little reflux which causes some spit-up episodes and a cough.  Thankfully the  amount of spit-up has tapered as we learn to control her eating.

Now that she can easily lift her head and move it from side to side she always sleeps on her tummy.  In fact even when she is awake she prefers to be on her tummy and not her back.

She loves to be talked too.  And she's a tough one as her brother has thrown a full-sized football at her head twice and he has sat on her head and each time she hasn't even made a peep.

She is also the recipient of lots of Sawyer kisses.  I think she will be well protected as her brother does not like anyone besides mom and dad to hold Nora.  He starts crying and runs to me to make sure I know what's going on.

She is typically a wonderful sleeper going to bed around 10 or 11 pm and sleeping until 5:00 am.  She will eat and then go back down for 3-4 more hours.

She has naturally developed a bit of a routine eating every three hours during the day.  However at night she does like to cluster feed.

Here's a typical day:
8:00 am wakes and eats
9:00 - 11:00 naps
11:00 am eats
12:00 pm plays and watches us eat
1:00 pm naps
2:00 pm eats
3:00 - 5:00 pm naps
5:00 pm eats
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm plays
7:00 pm eats
9:00 pm eats
10:00 pm eats

And a sampling from the past week:

 Can you tell she does not like to awakened
