We were really lucky to have lots of family come in for Charly's blessing. She when out and did more things this last week than she had done in the first two months of life. She got to meet lots of Grandparents, an Aunt and Uncle and even her cousins. Thanks to everyone that came!

Charly wore the dress that I wore when I was blessed, my mom made it for me out of her wedding dress so it is pretty special. (Charly left, Kjirstin right)

1 Month Stats

I know I am a little late on this, but it has been hard to find time to sit down on the computer when I would rather be making up on sleep. Up to her one month appointment we were on a 3 hour feeding schedule. Then she had gained enough weight to show she was eating well and the doctor said we could feed on demand. Since then I think her schedule has been all over because I let her sleep when she wants to, but then she has been not sleeping well at night (when I want to). I think she just finished a growth spurt, so that is our new goal, to get her schedule so that she will sleep better at night.

For all those breastfeeding Moms in Milwaukee: I also learned from my Pediatrician that there is a nursing room in the mall. It is in the family bathroom that in upstairs in the food court. Being new to this breastfeeding thing it has been nice to know that I can go out and still have a private place to nurse.

Her one month stats are:
Height: 21.5 in
Weight: 8lbs 13.5oz

She also likes to play now, okay playing is mostly staring at the toys that I put in front of her or holding on to what we put in her hand, but that is progress right?

This one she actually grabbed the binky herself, problem is she pulls it out instead of putting it in.
