Rilyn Ann: One Month Old

20 Sep

How in the world has a month passed by already? Time goes by so much faster the second time around.

Little Miss Rilyn, we’ve enjoyed getting to know you and watching you grow these last 4 weeks.

-You weigh 8 pounds, 8 ounces and are 21 inches long.
-You’re still wearing size newborn clothes and diapers. You’re a little thing.
-You’re still sporting your full head of hair, although it’s starting to lighten in color a bit.
-You hate the swing and refuse to take a pacifier.
-You just recently (within the last 2 days) started smiling on purpose. You only do it a couple times a day, though.
-You’ve also started to coo a couple days ago, but you’re not quite sure you’re really interested in it yet. It’s a rare sound, but I get so excited when you do!
-You sleep wonderfully at night, sleeping for a 5 hour stretch and then another 4 hour stretch before waking for the day. Momma thanks you immensely for being such a great sleeper!
-You’re starting to be awake more during the day.
-You’re happiest in the morning.
-You have such amazing neck strength and head control already.
-You’ve rolled from your tummy to your back 3 times now. True story.
-You love to watch your sister and can track her as she walks around the room.

We love you so much and can’t wait to see you grow and learn and discover new things. I’m also so excited to watch your love and friendship with your sister develop into something beautiful! Happy One Month Birthday, Rilyn!
