My Little Rose: 1 Month Old (4 Weeks)

My Little Rose,

You grunt all night long. In fact we started calling you Ms. Piggy for a few days. You are the loudest sleeper on the planet, or I am the lightest sleeper. It got so bad one night with you waking me up every fifteen minutes that I considered moving you to your nursery. Don’t you worry, it isn’t going to happen, you are just too young, but just the fact that I considered it proves how loud you are. Regardless I am hoping either you stop grunting so much or I get used to your grunting.

Juggling two young kids is so hard. I often have you both on my lap. When I hold you your brother loves to climb up and see what is going on. I am just greatful that your brother is starting to get more and more interested in you. He started coming up to you and gently patting you saying baby.

With all the help we have been having I am napping often. Although I am tired and I feel a little light headed sometimes from lack of sleep I am so thankful for the help. I know without it I would be 100 times worse. This week Mrs. Faith is here helping and getting lost of cuddles from her 7th grandbaby.

You are eating so much this week. It feels like you are doubled in size. All you seem to be doing is eat and sleep, with very little time actually awake. You have almost grown out of all of your newborn clothes.

Since we are still bottle feeding, and there is no fear of nipple confusion, we introduced the binkie this week. I got you the same brand your brother liked, a wubanub, and I choose a lamb animal for you. Although you didn’t love it you did seem to like it.

Your hair seems to get dirty quickly. Last week I started getting a rash on my chest because of the oil in your hair. So this week I upped your bath schedule from twice a week to every other day. We are still doing pigeon baths, on a towel spread out on the counter. Even though your belly button stub fell off, and the yellow discharge seems to have gone away completely, I still want to wait a little longer before submerging you in water.

My favorite little newborn outfit is one your aunt Sweetie gave you. It is only going to fit for another week or two and I am going to cry when I have to pack it away. You my darling baby girl are just so adorable.
