4 weeks

Where has the time gone?? 4 weeks already. A month on Monday? So crazy. The little button is getting big that is for sure. She is gaining weight and definitely getting longer. I think she will be a tall one like her daddy. She still has the most perfect, beautiful face. And her little button nose is adorable. I honestly can't get enough of her and yet I am with her all day long! She is incredibly strong for a little girl. She holds her head up all the time. She has the most gorgeous eyes and loves looking around when she is awake.

She has been spitting up a lot lately. We are trying a few different things to see if it helps, if not, we are going to treat her for reflux. She is gaining weight, so the doctor isn't too worried. We just don't want her uncomfortable. An update on my nipple...it is still horribly cracked. I had been using a nipple guard to feed and it still wouldn't heal. I have been instructed to stop feeding her on that side altogether and just pump to see if that will help it. If it isn't better come Monday I have to go to the doctor for that. The pain was better than it was when using the nipple shield so that was good. I just would like the wound to go away now so I can feed her normal. Oh and I have to say...I hate pumping! I will do whatever I have to do though to make sure that she is taken care of, so I am sucking it up and dealing with it.

I am so in love. I enjoy spending my time with her. We have been getting out of the house a lot lately and I am so grateful she is so good. She doesn't mind at all being in her car seat. This is good, but then I don't mind being away from the house and that means...no nap for me. No wonder I am tired. Again, it is worth it. I am not as sleep deprived as I was earlier this week which is nice.

I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend and seeing some family. I will continue taking pictures...one day you all are going to be overwhelmed when I finally post them!

I totally miss Cole being so easily portable... he is still good now, but I can't just take him everywhere and have him sit happily in his little seat- he wants to get down and RUN!
