Whoa whoa, time flies by. I knew this would happen, but sitting here with a month old is really just showing me how fast it goes. This past month has been amazing and full of so many changes. I have not worked the past month other then editing, I have been able to focus on being home, and it has been pretty incredible, I wish I could do it all the time. More about that to come.
Rooney was born 5 pounds 3 oz. She was 19 inches long, and has the skinniest little body and legs. It took her about a week or so to even grow into her skin. She has been wearing preemie clothes from the get go, and is barely getting to long for them. Newborn clothes are huge on her still though so we will see how we transition into those or when for that matter.
She was born July 23 at Alta View Hospital in Utah. We spent a week in the hospital due to an infection she had, and were released July 30. We loved being home and starting our life with our little lady. She has been the light of our lives. As for sleeping she has done good! Still not consistent but every couple of days we will get 5 hour stretches. We spend a lot of our day eating, changing diapers, and snuggling and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
We had an appointment 2 weeks after she was born and she was 6 pounds and still 19 inches long. She has had a little bit of reflux and spitting up but overall is doing great. We give her a colic relief medicine that has been helping her quite a bit.
I love her coos, her yawns and sounds she makes when she yawns. She is so loud all the time, which isn’t shocking coming from me, but I call her a baby pterodactyl. She has a full head of hear and doesn’t love the baths because she still has her umbilical cord and so she can’t get fully immersed still! She loves her Dock a Tot and her Snoo which I will be talking about soon. She loves to be swaddled, and is pretty dang alert if I don’t swaddle her. We can’t wait to wear all our cute clothes once we finally can fit in Newborn!
Rooney for one day when you read this, I hope you know that I love you. You truly have changed my life and you are the best thing to happen to me and your dad. We don’t get nearly as much sleep, but I’ve never seen your dad happier, or seen his love for both of us grow so much. We went through some battles to get you, and I thank God everyday that he gifted me with you. I will never be able to show my appreciation for you, so instead I will love you with all my heart your whole life. Thank you for giving us the best month of our lives, we can’t wait to raise you!
