I know…just when you thought the baby times had come and gone around here, I go and start doing them all over again! It’s crazy to look back at Caroline’s 1 month update and see just how different my two girls are from one another-night and day I tell you…Here is the lowdown on Miss Carson:
Growing Like a Weed. Yes indeed my little one, you are growing right before my very eyes. You eat all the time you little ham and it shows. Gone are the frail little toothpick legs you had when you came into the world and now we’re starting to see some meat on those bones…yall know I love me some fat babies! I feed you every 2-3 hours and I cherish that time we have together more than you know…it’s our time for me to hold your hand, stroke your head, and just take every ounce of you in–that baby smell never gets old! In terms of feeding, you’re getting all “mama’s milk” and it’s going well so far (For those that asked, I plan to do a breastfeeding post soon so stay tuned!) As of your 2 week checkup, you weighed 7 pounds, 6 ounces (25%) and were 20.5 inches long (50%). I bet you’ve gained at least another pound since then! You are still in newborn clothes and diapers (Huggies Pure and Natural and Pampers Swaddlers), but I think we’ll be changing out the wardrobe for 0-3 month clothes very soon!
In terms of interaction, you love to sit in your bouncy seat and check out the birds and listen to the sounds/music. You also love to sit in front of the window to get some vitamin D. You are extremely calm and don’t mind being set down…you usually will sit there and look around for a few minutes before sister comes over to try and give you a pacifier and/or blanket…she really loves you Carson!!
I am REALLY enjoying the newborn stage all over again with you Carson. I know it’s ONLY going to get better the older you get, but I am relishing in these moments because I know it goes way too fast. I love to let you sleep on me, and can’t help but just sit there and watch you…melt my heart.
We love you very much Little Bit! OXOX
