One Month

Time flies!!  Adelie is already one month old.  She is growing quickly, already weighing about 10 lbs.  She has outgrown her newborn clothes and her newborn bathtub insert.  I've had to move the straps up on her carseat.  She is still in newborn diapers only because I am trying to use them up.  It's hard to believe that she has already changed so much in just one short month.

Likes:  Adelie likes eating.  (She generally wants to eat every 1 1/2 to 2 hours during the day when awake.)  She enjoys baths, diaper changes, music, dancing, walks, being outdoors, and car rides.  She is most smiley in the mornings and generally more fussy in the evenings, so we'll be glass-half-full people and attribute that to liking mornings.  She prefers her swing to her bouncy seat, and seems to enjoy play time on her playmat.  (Although when fussy, being held and walking around is her preferred position.)

Dislikes:  Being hungry, cold, or tired.  She is also not fond of being strapped into her carseat when it is not moving.

Skills:  Adelie's skill set is relatively limited.  She can drink from a bottle, lift her head up for short periods of time on her tummy and when upright, flail and kick at her playmat toys (and hit them relatively often), suck on her hands/fingers, and pull her own hair.  She is a pretty good night time sleeper, sleeping anywhere from 3-5 hours at a time with the very rare 6 hour or 2 hour stint.  She is generally mellow as long as she is well-fed and well-rested.  And her smile can't be beat.  Our life is fuller because of Adelie.
