It is safe to say that this has been the fastest month of my entire life. I cannot believe my baby girl was born a whole month ago! Ava had her 1 month check up today and weighs 8lbs and 13 oz. She is still 21 inches long and is right on track for her growth. I am so proud of my baby girl!
We found out last week that she has acid reflux which was very scary for me to see my daughter in pain. I felt so helpless and like a failure to not be able to help make my baby feel better. I'm so glad we went to the Doctor, because after taking some medication, Ava is back to her happy self! At 1 month old, Ava is finding her voice and has the most adorable coos! She loves when Daddy gives her baths, going for walks in her baby carrier and feeding time with Mommy. She hates being put in her car seat and when Mommy changes her.
I love watching my precious angel grow and I can't wait to see all of her developments over the next month. I am enjoying every moment, even her cute little tears. They say it gets easier after the first month, and I find that it all is coming together and I am feeling much more confident as a mother. My Husband and I have just started a new bedtime routine which worked great last night! Ava goes to sleep around 9pm, wakes up around 2am and then not again until 6:30am, so I am getting 4-5 hour stretches of sleep which is wonderful. I love you Ava Marie, my sweet little girl.
