Matilda James is now a month old, and I can’t believe how fast it goes, even though I’ve done this before, and should absolutely know that time just slips right past you before you know it.
Matilda at 1 month:
Matilda is a much better sleeper than Violet was. After two weeks, she was successfully sleeping the entire night in her bassinet instead of crying until I held her. She also only wakes up about every three hours, and it seemed like Violet was up a lot more than that.
She shits a lot less than Violet, but farts and burps ALL the time. She also snorts, farts, sqeaks, and makes various other man-like noises while trying to settle to sleep. This has made getting myself to sleep LOADS of fun considering I’ve got the mom ears that come with having a newborn, and I can hear it every time he eyelids flutter.
Matilda has done great getting on an eating schedule, something we never bothered to do with Violet because, 1. she was my first and I basically just did whatever she told me to do because itty-bitty-baby!! and 2. I had six more weeks of maternity leave with Violet than I do with Matilda, so I took my time getting her on a schedule. Matilda has had to adjust very quickly to schedules and bottles and such, and has done well with it.
I mean…I don’t know…what else can you say about a one month old, really?? She’s an adorable little lump that isn’t quite smiling yet, but is definitely starting to be more and more alert day by day. She looks IDENTICAL to Violet when she was first born, so I am looking forward to having two mini-mees. She’s a pretty mellow baby, and has displayed NO signs of colic, which was a big fear of mine. I can’t wait to find out just who Matilda is going to be!
