One Month!

I can't believe it, but baby Fynn, you're one month old today... where has the time gone? I know... every parent says that, but seriously... how did this happen?

It is amazing how much you have changed in just four short weeks. I can't believe this is the same creature we brought home from the hospital. So, here's what you have been up to this month and the things I want to remember about you in the future:

This month you:

Are still wearing newborn diapers and clothes... and some of them are still big on you. Hopefully soon you will fit into some 0-3 month clothes. You currently weigh 7 lbs, 10 ozs! It's still so little, but it's so much bigger than you were. Everyone who sees you thinks you're so much younger than you are and comments on what a little peanut you are.

Sleep a lot, obviously, but you sleeps like your daddy. Your hands are sprawled above your head and you likes for your legs and feet to be uncovered. Most new babies love being swaddled. Not you, you wants your arms and legs free to explore. You sleep amazing during the day. You go to sleep on your own, and sleep for solid periods of time. At night though... that's a different story. Some nights you sleep for 4-5 hours (woo-hoo!!!) at a time, wake up, eat, and go right back to sleep. Other nights you're up every 2 hours and it takes an hour (or more!) to get you back to sleep. Thank goodness you're cute little girl, cause Mama is tired. Oh so tired. 

Nom on your hands, arms, my shoulder, and whatever is in front of you when you're hungry. I nicknamed you Woody Woodpecker from day one because when you gets really hungry you start bobbing your head and bashing it into whoever is holding you. 

LOVE your daddy. You looks all around for him when you hear his voice. While I'm jealous, it also melts my heart to see the two of you together.

Make a LOT of noise, including squeaking like a little mouse and "pre" screams that say "hey, I'm here, come pay attention to me before I start really screaming" You also started making a noise this week that sounds like you're laughing.

Last week you noticed your mobile for the first time and watched the monkeys on it going around and around.

Starting to cuddle. Your hands move to my chest or neck when I hold you. When you're eating you wrap one arm around my stomach and rest the other on my chest, like you're giving me a big hug. You've also started touching my face when I hold you. The other night when I was watching you in your cradle, you reached out your little hand to grab me. 

Love bath time. You hate sponge baths, but love sitting in the tub and having warm water poured over you. 

Give the "stink eye" with one eye open and one eye closed. Also known as your pirate look.

Smile. I know people claim you're too young, and that it's just gas, but that's a lie. When I give you kisses or blow raspberries on your cheek you will grin. 

Baby girl, you have a bunch of nicknames this month: 

  • stinky, stinkbug, stinky baby (for obvious reasons)
  •  Woody (I mentioned this one)
  •  chubby bunny, chubs (girl, you can eat!) 
  • stubs (from that unfortunate time when I trimmed your thumb along with your nail. No, you didn't actually lose any of your finger, but Daddy likes to torture me with it) 
  • baby girl, Fynn, Fynn-Fynn, Fynnie 

It amazing me to see how much you're doing and how different you are. I can't believe I've only known you for one month... it feels like forever. At the same time, it feels like the past month has flown by. I feel like you were born yesterday, but you're already so big! 


  1. Awwww so cute!!!! I miss my daughter being 1 month old. She's 3 months now and so big already! It's like shes a different baby.
