Is it really time for my first monthly post about Harper? I can’t believe how fast the last month went! But, here we are at 1 month old already.
Harper is 1 month old!
Such a little sweetie
Here are a few things that Harper does at 1 month old:
She definitely smiles at us. When we ask her to smile she will do it. I haven’t been able to get a picture yet of her doing it, but I will post one when I can get her to do it for the camera.
Harper is just starting to coo and talk to us and tell us little stories.
Harper loves to watch Hailey and Hunter play. Hunter really loves to entertain her and share his toys with her- and Harper will just sit and watch his busy little body! Hailey loves to hold Harper and snuggle her and Harper loves to smile at Hailey. Harper also loves to look at ceiling fans and she also likes to stare at the curtains in our living room- those were some of Hunter’s favorite things to look at too. Harper is not a fan of tummy time (do babies ever like tummy time?). She would rather just put her head down and go to sleep or cry until I pick her up. Harper loves to be held and does not like it so much when she is put down.
Harper is an excellent sleeper. I am so thankful she sleeps so well! She takes naps through out the day and I haven’t really found a pattern yet. Some days she barely sleeps all day and others she sleeps very soundly for a couple of long naps. At night she always sleeps great. She has been doing one stretch of sleep between 5-7 hours. She wakes up to eat and goes right back to sleep. After her long stretch of sleep she is usually up every 2 or 3 hours to nurse, but she always goes right back to sleep.
Harper is breastfeeding and usually goes between 1-3 hours between feedings during the day.
Harper weighs 11 pounds (77th percentile) and is 22 1/4 inches long (69th percentile). She wears 0-3 clothes and size 2 diapers.
