I felt a little weird posting this in the pregnancy updates thread because I don’t want to steal their thunder. I just wanted a thread where we can share our baby updates! I’ll go first (you guys can add more categories too!):
Age: 1 month!
Milestones: Outgrew her first onesie this week. No more Gerber newborn size onesies. 🙁 She also outgrew newborn diapers. She’s on to size 1 diapers! She had her first smile a week and a half ago, and now we’re able to prompt smiles by cooing at her or tickling her ribs.
Sleep: Longest stretches are about 4 hours now! Woohoo sleep!
Weight Lost: 25lbs
Milestones: Got the jogging stroller out and went for a four mile walk this week. DH and I plan to do it daily! Still in maternity clothes though…wish I could fit back into my jeans, but my thighs aren’t cooperating. >:-I
What about the rest of you new Momma Bees?

1 month old yesterday, weight 7 lbs and change (still in premie/newborn diapers)
Social smile really catching on in earnest, starting to be a loud sleeper-grunts, coos, goose noises (all developmentally normal for this age). Definitely able to regard my face and recognizes my voice.
Sleep: no sleep til Brooklyn (or at least during the day). It’s a trade off because our first nighttime sleep generally lasts 5-6 hours, then we get 3 hours after that. The hour or so before bedtime can get pretty fussy because she’s so tired, but I’ll live with it to get 6 hours of straight sleep at night!
Weight loss: 16 lbs to go. Engagement ring back on!
Pumping 6-7 oz at a time.
We walk every night (when it’s not raining), but I’m ready to start couch to 5K. I just wish that the breast area didn’t hurt so badly when trying to run!

I love this thread! I think pics should be part of updates too 🙂
Mrs DG – what does this mean? “no sleep til Brooklyn”???

Hey Janna – “No Sleep Til Brooklyn” is from a Beatie Boys song. Good song. Now I have it stuck in my head! This is a good thread. Yes, pictures would be good. Babies are so cute and I’m looking forward to when my FI and I can have them.

It’s been a month already?! Goodness! Don’t worry mommas, you’re not the only ones for whom time is flying by! 😉

You can check out our gallery. We keep adding photos. Here’s the link:
And yes, the reference “No Sleep to Brooklyn” was a reference to the Beastie Boys, which I reference nightly when I wake up!

Mrs. DG- She is adorable! I love all those pics!!!
You have the same swing that we registered for! Do you like it? Does Cecilia?? Did you get anything else in that same system?

She’s so beautiful Mrs. DG!

I do like the swing. I would have loved one that plugged in to the wall, but ultimately safety won out and we picked this one with a 5 point safety harness. This one rated very well for safety, and was on sale at Babies R Us when we were looking for swings. We didn’t get anything else in the same system. We actually brought Cecilia to the store and tried out all the swings and this was definitely the one she liked the best!
I will warn you that it was kind of a pain in the a$s to put together, but we got it done!
