First Smile!




You had your first real smile today and the second time I got it on camera. It's the most beautiful smile and I can see the joy in your eyes! I was just talking to you and smiling and it must have been contagious. Your sister and I had fun after that saying "cheese" to you!

Love,
Momma

Fall Fun

With slightly cooler temperatures over the weekend, we decided to do a few fall things as a family. First stop, to pick out our pumpkins! Sister and Daddy picked us out some good ones.


The next day, we went to a pumpkin patch in Bryant. There was a ton of stuff to do there and we did it all from a petting zoo, to a hay ride, to a train ride, to a bounce house, to picking out another pumpkin. Course, you were asleep most of the time. We did let you have a wagon ride. :)


Here you are in the pumpkin patch!


And the only pic I could get of you and sister. She moves so fast now!


After we got home, we took a few more picture. Here you are smiling at sister. You love to watch her. Aunt Kara bought you the cat hat and socks. You looked so cute in them!


I asked sister to give you a kiss and she gave you a cheek. She is so funny! That's what she gives all of us. She loves "that baby"!


Love,
Momma

Sisters, Play & Feeding





You are still too young to play, but you have been enjoying spending some of your awake time on the Baby Einstein mat. Your sister has been so sweet to you and when you on it, she loves to play along side you. I just know you will be the best of friends!

You've has a few eating problems. After I switched you to the bottle, you started projectile vomiting, which was scary. However, I switched you to a more sensitive formula and switched you to a slower flow bottle and you quit (thank goodness!). However, you have still been having a few issues, crying during late afternoon feelings and general uncomfortable movements while eating, which can sometimes be reflux. However, I'm still trying to decide if it's reflux or just the fact that you eat too much too often a lot and get tummy aches. I went ahead and got some baby Zantac from the doctor, but I don't give it to you unless you are bad off. You have actually been doing better with slightly bigger feeds. Today, you have had 5 1/2 ounces at 12:30 am and at 6:00 am! By the way, thank you so much for the sleep! ;)

Love,
Momma

1 Month Old


You are one month old today! You wear size "Newborn" and 0-3 Month clothes and a size "N" diaper. I haven't put shoes on you yet, but I imagine you wear the smallest size. I'm not sure of what you weigh, but I think it's around 9 pounds. You are starting to wake up from "the big sleep" and become a little more alert and active. You are such a good and easy baby! You pretty much just like to be warm and full and you are happy. You like watching your sister and love it when people talk to you. We are so in live with you and are so grateful for this past amazing month!

Love,
Momma
