Loralei is One Month!

Loralei, you are one month old! Wow, that was fast! The more kids I have the faster time flies. 

You were such a little baby when you were born. Six pound, 8 ounces and newborn clothes were so big on you! I am not going to lie, I kind of liked it. I have never had a small baby before.

Your cord fell off pretty quickly and you got your first bath. You pretty much slept through it!

You got to get all dressed up to go to Layla's kindergarten luncheon. You slept through that as well. 

Your newborn sleepers started to get too short and you started filling out.

We also had to move your flower to the bathtub. You really like bathtime. 

You also do great in your swing. This is where most of the daytime sleeping occurs. That, or in Mommy's arms. 

By the end of the first month you have outgrown all of your newborn clothes and are now in 3 months. I just thought you were going to be petite, but now I think you are going to follow in your sister's footsteps and be a big girl.

You nurse like a champ. No, we are not on a schedule, I nurse when you want to. Also, we have to many activities to have to stick to a schedule. You go with the flow so well.

You love to sleep during the day. I have to wake you up to eat. You wake up at night every two hours. There have been a few nights where it was every hour. Momma is tired! 

You do great in your car seat and don't mind being in it. You had your one week check up and we don't have to go back until two months! At one week you were already back to your birth weight. 

Loralei's Newborn Pictures

I took Loralei's newborn pictures when she was four days new! My main goal was to get a picture of all four girls looking at the camera. Yes, I said looking. Smiling would be a bonus. Lydia was the one I was worried about. It isn't always easy to control a 23 month old. I was over the moon when this happened. This was the second picture I took! Done and Done! No head swapping need in photoshop. 

With all the other girls I have had a color scheme. I do their newborn pics to match their room and continue that with the first birthday pics and so on. Well, poor little Loralei doesn't have a room of her own. I decided to use corals, because...why not?

And since I will never have a boy, I threw in some blue.

This was my favorite though! It was a complete last minute idea, while she was snoozing on the dream blanket. I went outside and clipped flowers off my front porch and I love it.

She was such a good baby. I love when they make it easy!
