Claire - 1 month

Well, I'm a few days late on this....okay, a week. I'm trying to stay on top of things....trying, but failing. I blame it on the lack of sleep and the lack of time that I have these days. Claire is a month old already (5 weeks actually). She is a really good baby and just so sweet.

At one month she:

-Weighs 9 pounds, 9 ounces. She weighed 7 pounds, 2 ounces at birth so she is packing on the weight fast.

-Are 20.5 inches long

-Are wearing newborn size clothes but have almost outgrown them.

-Have a really bad case of baby acne. It's all over your cheeks. I feel so bad that you have it but the Dr. said there is nothing to do for it except wait for it to go away (hopefully in a few weeks). They say it doesn't bother babies but I'd like to know how they know that!

-Are still sleeping most of the day but you do have a few periods where you are awake for an hour or so at a time

-When you are awake, you are very alert. You respond to voices and follow us with your eyes.

-You smile alot but it seems to just be random smiles and not smiles in reaction to me doing silly things.

-You have a lot of hair....it hasn't started to fall out yet.

-You look like mommy - big eyes, brown hair, same nose....but since you are eating so much you now have daddy's chubby cheeks!

-You are adorable and have doubled the joy in our house!!!

I can't believe it's been 5 weeks! I think it's so great that you do these little progress reports. She's beautiful. Thanks for sharing her with us.

Sooo cute!!! Love the stats. McKenzie had acne at 5 weeks. Our Dr said to put Head and Shoulders on it when we bathed her (careful not to get in eyes). After a few rounds of that it went away.

Ps. LOVE THAT CHAIR!!
