Part of me can’t believe Elizabeth is a month old already. Part of me thinks, “It’s only been a month?” The paradox.
Anyway, she is doing very well. I gave her a nice bath this morning and this time she actually seemed to enjoy it a bit. She was much calmer and only cried when she began to get cold. I had Felicity sitting on the counter to the right of the sink and Cecilia sitting on the counter to the left of the sink “helping.”
Elizabeth weighed in at 9 pounds and 13 ounces, which puts her net one month gain at 2 pounds exactly. Considering newborns lose some weight at first, I’m pretty happy with that.
Now I had a bit of difficulty trying to measure her. She kept rolling her head from side to side and moving her legs… so I’m not sure I got an accurate measurement. I’ll see how it compares to next month’s but the number I got more than once was 22 inches.
I cannot believe she grew so much in one month!
