Brooke hit her one-month mark a couple weeks ago. I took the pictures in this post the day after she turned one month. She will be six weeks tomorrow, and while I want to focus this post on Brooke at one month, I will say this last week I feel like she’s become more alert and attentive. I love seeing her become more animated! Also, last night she slept for 8 hours straight (from 8:45 p.m to 4:45 a.m.).
Facts about Brooke at one-month:
- She loves bath time and never cries during the process. (David always cried during bath time as a newborn. He did not like being naked).
- She didn’t cry much during her first two weeks of life, except when she was hungry. She gave no other clues that she was hungry (like rooting). So when she was hungry, she cried loudly (still does, haha). When she ate, she acted like she was ravenous.
- She was born with long hair and long fingernails.
- She has big, blue eyes.
- She doesn’t love being swaddled tightly (which David did love).
We’re so happy to have her as part of our family. While having a toddler and a newborn has taken my days to a new level of busy as I try to meet both of their needs, the transition from one child to two children has been easier for me than from no children to one child. I think part of that is because I haven’t had to deal with the same nursing challenges I had the first time around. I love watching both Brooke and David grow!
