well we can't believe it, can you? our little gal will be four weeks old tomorrow. she's been here almost a month already and we are still just in awe of this little gal.
she has been the best baby so far. here are some fast facts about maelle's first 4 weeks:
she sleeps like a champion. most nights she averages 6 or 7 hours at a time, then eats and goes right back to sleep. we are VERY thankful for her sleeping abilities.
she has started sucking on her thumb, her fingers, her fist, the blanket, my hair...whatever she can get close to her mouth.
she has rolled over twice from her tummy onto her back. she is pretty opinionated and stubborn and just seems to decide how long tummy time should last and when she's done, she's done. finley, however, loves tummy time.
she loves when it's time to eat. and she really loves when her daddy gives her a bottle.
she has almost outgrown most of her newborn clothes already. she is just too tall for them. luckily she is getting lots of new clothes from all her friends.
she falls asleep really well in the car after a few moments of really loud screaming.
she is still sleeping in our room in her cradle and rocks to her heart's content.
she is a great little snuggler. her favorite thing is to cuddle up next to someone wrapped up in a blanket.
she has begun to like bath time and almost smiles when you pour water on her tummy.
but when it's time to get out of the bath...it's another story entirely.
that's maelle at four weeks old. she's been a barrel of fun so far and we are so excited for the next four weeks at home together.
