1 Month Old

Our sweet baby Kinley,
My oh my how this first month has flown by! You will never know how much joy you have brought to our lives in such a short amount of time. You are truly the most precious baby. Your dad and I couldn't have asked for a better baby, you mean the world to us. I have enjoyed spending every single day with you and couldn't be happier now that I'm a stay at home mom. You are truly the joy of our lives, your dad and I stare at you and talk about you nonstop, we've never been this happy in our entire lives!
We love you more than you will ever know!
Mommy & Daddy

And now for your latest stats:

Weight: 9lbs 3oz 50th percentile

Length: 21 1/2 inches 75th percentile

Diaper size: Newborn (but this will probably be your last week in them)

Clothes size: Newborn clothes, but just this week you have outgrown a few of the smaller newborn onesies

Sleep: You are an awesome sleeper (thank you God!) You usually sleep 5 hours, and then 3-4 after that each night.

Favorite activities/things: You love laying in your play gym and looking at the dangling animals and shapes.

Eating: You are quite the little eater! You are eating every 2 1/2 to 3 hours during the day. The last two weeks you gained 2 oz a day, twice the "recommended" amount! The doctors are thrilled with how well you are eating/gaining, we think you're doing a darn good job too. =) You are quite the character when you eat, usually making a full range of noises from snorting to choking, yes... you've been known to try to eat a bit too fast.

Talking: You haven't started to make any new sounds this month, but you have definitely developed your lungs. You let us know with a loud cry if you need something, but then quickly go back to being calm as soon as we accommodate you.

New adventures: This month you have showed us just how strong you are! Since the first week you have been able to lift and turn your head from side to side. This past week you have started lifting your head straight up while on your stomach.

You also experienced your first Christmas! And you got to meet lots of new people, including your aunt Keri and uncle Ben!

We can't wait to see what month two has in store for you baby girl!

And a sneak peek at more pictures that are coming soon!
