A glimpse into our crazy life

Alaina’s First Month November 3, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — emilyandfrank @ 1:27 pm

Alaina celebrated her one month birthday last week and is growing like a weed!

At her checkup on Monday, she was up to 11 lbs 8 oz and 22.25 inches, putting her in the 95th percentile for both weight and length. She’s already outgrowing some of her 0-3 month clothes because she’s too long for them! As you can see, she loves to stretch out now. She’s becoming much more vocal with grunts and coos, and we’ve even gotten a few genuine smiles from her! She’s had a fun first month of life. Here are some of the highlights:

-Visits from Aunt Stephanie, Aunt Heather, and Grandma Doris.

-Going to her first athletic event- a volleyball game.

-Getting out of the house every day with mom- to the store, to the mall, going on walks, etc. She even helped me vote yesterday!

-Her first holiday- Halloween- although she slept through almost all of the trick-or-treaters.

-Helping mom and dad become expert multi-taskers, like petting Mya while cuddling with Alaina.

-Making us laugh every day with some new goofy thing that she’ll do.

While it’s been exhausting, we’ve definitely loved our first month with our beautiful baby girl!!
