McKenna - 1 Month

Before I had McKenna, I told myself I was going to savor every moment because it goes by so fast. So here we are, McKenna is already a month old, I have slowed down a bit, but not enough! McKenna is a sweet baby and is so cute. Her obvious distinct feature is her crazy brown hair. I try to comb it to the side so I can put a little bow in it, but it goes right back to sticking straight up! Needless to say, with the receding hairline and spiky hair, she has to wear a lot a pink.
McKenna is pretty boring compared to her 18 month old sister!
  • She can lift her head, look around, etc.
  • We are doing a lot of tummy time & squats to build her muscles.
  • Responds to sounds
  • Loves to stare at lights, windows, ceiling fans and faces
  • Grunts and squeaks a lot
  • Started doing a little baby talk, which is super cute
  • Loves to play on the play mat... kicking and swinging her arms. She will occasionally grab a toy on the mat.
  • Sleeps swaddled in the pack-in-play outside our room.
  • Excellent sleeper - she will go 6-7 hours at night, which is delightful!
  • Loves her swing and bouncer.
  • I am breastfeeding, but she will take a bottle of formula
  • Loves her pacifier
  • Wears newborn sized clothing, newborn diaper
  • Weighs 9 pounds, 2 ounces

Our biggest problem with McKenna has been her digestive issues. Please pray that she will become more "regular". We had scans done on her belly, so there is no blockage or obstruction. I have eliminated diary from my diet completely :( and am keeping a food journal. It makes me sad that something I am eating is causing her some much discomfort, so hopefully we will figure out what it is soon. I want to nurse her a long as possible, but will obviously stop if we cannot figure out what the food sensitivity issue is.
