One Month Old!

Our little lady is one month old! It is the longest month that's gone by in the quickest time, if that makes any sense. She weighed in at 8lbs 2ozs (and didn't pee on mommy after the scale this time) and given a clean bill of health. :) We did get a referral for an ENT doctor to investigate a possible posterior tongue tie. There is still a significant amount of pain for me nursing and she's still getting a fair amount of air and/or coughing while latched, so the pediatrician thought it best to get it checked out by a specialist.


I don't want to jinx it, but she's sleeping 4-5 hours during the night now that we have her in a more comfortable position (she likes to be propped up a bit, likely due to the aforementioned air intake which turns into gas bubbles if she can't burp it out).


She's also tracking objects and faces more. The ceiling fan is her new favorite thing in the world. And I think she smiled AT me yesterday!! It was the cutest thing and I (of course) cried. :)
