Harper - 1 Month!

Wednesday, September 23, 2015

I wrote this back when Harper was a month old, but just hadn't gotten around to posting it yet. I'm not sure how exactly the last month has flown by. It's hard to remember a time before Harper. Both Dan and I are completely and absolutely in love with her and just love having our complete little family! We've spent most of this month getting in the rhythm of new parenthood and showing off our little girl to family and friends. Our first few days home were filled with lots of visitors, but it has begun to taper off which has been nice. We try to get out of the house at least once a day whether it's for a walk or a trip to the store or for some grandparent snuggle time so that we don't go stir crazy! Thankfully both Dan and I were able to take several weeks off once Harper arrived so we've been enjoying our new life as a family of 3!
Nicknames: Harps, Harpy, Piglet, Turkey, Little One

Height & Weight: 10 lbs 2oz and 22 inches long

Food: She's just breastfeeding, but we are trying to incorporate a pumped bottle several times a week to help her get used to using one for when I go back to work and also to allow me a little bit of a break at times.

Sleep: She's currently sleeping pretty consistent 3 hour stretches. We are working on getting her to fall back asleep a little quicker and have tried a few different sleeping options to see what works best. Currently at night she's sleeping in the newborn napper part of the pack and play in our room and that seems to work best. During the day she likes to sleep in her swing.

Favorites: She loves car rides and walks and really anytime she's moving. She loves to eat and that definitely showed at her doctors appointments this month where she gained her birthweight back in nearly 3 days and was already up a pound over her birth weight at her 2 week check up!

Milestones: She rolled over for the first time when she was just over 2 weeks (I'm hoping it was a one time thing and she won't be inclined to start practicing her rolling anymore for a little while). We had our first few doctors appointments for both her and I postpartum.

Looking Forward To: Visits from out of town family over the next month!

This was taken on my due date, where I was supposed to be 40 weeks pregnant, but Harper was already two and a half weeks old! So thankful that we got an extra two and a half weeks with her!
