1 Month

Celia is closer to 2 months than one month now but I did take her bear picture on the day. She is too good to be true. To describe her in one word: contentment. She lets us know if she is hungry or wants a cuddle but otherwise is a content little baby.

She likes to eat (what feels like) non-stop in the evenings and be held until her midnight bedtime. She sleeps a solid 6 hour stretch then goes straight back to sleep for another 3-4 hours. She still does not burp and rarely spits up. She is swaddled for night and most naps.

At her 6 week check, she weighed 9 lbs and 8 ozs and is 24 inches long. She is 25th for weight, 75th for length and 50th for head. Those genetics run strong. The smallest clothes are too small. She only wore long gowns for day and night for the first 5 weeks. Now she gets "dressed" in footed sleepers for day.

Last week she hit a less than desirable "milestone": a cold. The Nap Nanny has really came in handy. She is a choker so I worry a little less with her in a reclined position. One choking episode as she was turning red and purple I considered calling 999. But she quickly recovered. She is now good as new.

She is giving us lots of smiles and holding our gaze. She is starting to coo. She is a sweet angel.
