Happy 1 month, Paisley Rae

Yesterday Paisley was 1 month old! Happy 1 month, little girl! She is such a joy in our lives and it really feels like we are adjusting well to being a family of 4.
Sleeping
We start bedtime for Paisley at 7pm. Judah and Jeremiah hangout with us as she gets changed into her jammies and swaddled up in her blanket. Then I feed her in our room and she goes to bed. She sleeps for about 4 or 5 hours straight and then wakes up to eat. She wakes up to eat every couple hours after that and starts her day at 7am. She still sleeps in the bassinet in our room. We moved Judah into his own room around 6 weeks but, I'm not sure how long Paisley will be in our room. I guess we'll just have to see what feels right.


Eating
Paisley nurses every 2.5-3 hours during the day. If she's napping, I wake her up to eat. She is doing great nursing!

Personality
I feel like Paisley is starting to be a little more content. She has some happy awake time during the day but, she still is pretty fussy in the evening. She takes a pacifier and that really calms her down. It's handy right now but, I worry about it becoming too big of a habit. Also, she likes to look at Judah and watch her mobile.

New things
Paisley has been smiling at us!!! She has smiled at me a good number of times and she's also smiled at Judah and Jeremiah. Her smile is absolutely the most adorable thing and it makes me so happy.

She is so precious and I'm so thankful she's part of our family!

  1. She looks beautiful. I can't believe she is already a month old. I imagine it's a little easier for you to believe since you've gone a month without solid sleep. When they start really smiling it does seem to help with the sleep deprivation.
