One month old

Kaylie is now 1 month old! So crazy how the time goes. In just a few weeks she has changed so much! She now weighs 10 pounds and is 21 inches long! She is so long and lean! It amazes me that she still fits into her newborn clothes but some of them are too short. Yes they fit around the waist but not in length. Yesterday I put her in one of her newborn sleepers and she couldn't stretch out her poor legs. But then I put her in a 0-3 month sleeper and I found her the next morning with both legs stuck in the same foot hole! Poor girl-mommy will get it right sometime I guess! And yes she still has a big head- she has already outgrown some of her cute little hats! My favorite picture of Derick and Kaylie from a few weeks ago. Back when she didn't mind being swaddled. Now she just fights it! Also she fights sleep and grunts all the time! The only time she sleeps really good is cuddled up next to one of us!
One morning I woke up with a start and thought something was wrong cause she slept so long in her crib! She loves her arms out and laying on her side!

Just lounging on Mommy's bed in her favorite deer jammies!She loves her tummy time for about 5 minutes and does so good getting her head up. Instead of flopping around she actually has some control and is starting to be more alert and likes to look around. This is also the look she gives when she is hungry! She does ok with breastfeeding during the day but at night time it's a fight. I've started pumping to get ready to go back to work and we've also started introducing the bottle to get her used to it and she does really good. It also seems better and doesn't make her spit up as much. I've had a hard time being ok with not breastfeeding as much but Kaylie is a stinker and Derick keeps telling me, As long as she's eating my breast milk it's ok. I still love to feed her and have that time with her but I love that she still looks up at me and holds my hand when I give her a bottle. I'm just happy that she's gaining weight now and growing like crazy!

She actually loves her little bath! I thought for sure she would scream and hate it but she loves the warm water. Lately she's been trying to stick her leg over the edge into the water but once she touches it, she doesn't know what to do and just holds her leg up in the air! But once you take her out and try to dress her...then the screaming starts!
