Eden – One Month!

I cannot believe our precious girl is one-month old!

At one month Eden:

  • weighs 9 pounds, ten ounces
  • measures 21 inches in length
  • can hold her head up for 10 seconds.
  • can eat 4 oz at a meal.
  • sleeps for 4-hour stretches.
  • has rolled from front to back twice! (it’s not a skill yet…just fun to watch her do it).
  • blows at the end of a spit up – this completely cracks me up. I forget that she does it each time and am suprised with a spewing either on my cheek…or whatever body part is closest…tooooo adorable. (I never imagined I find being spit up on adorable.)
  • practices smiling in her sleep.
  • is working on her social smile.
  • has very strong legs! During tummy time, she can inch herself across a throw-blanket…lengthwise.
  • loves, loves, loves to be swaddled.
  • has the cutest, chubbiest cheeks!
  • is slow to wake up. She stretches and stretches and stretches…yawns and yawns and yawns…and pouts her lips. It takes her a good 10 minutes to really wake up. My favorite time with her is getting her out of bed. She’s so cute and cuddly…especially with those pouty lips.
  • has bright, slate-blue eyes. (There seems to be an intricate pattern developing. I  think it indicates her eyes will change to hazel…we’ll see.)
  • show’s signs that she is an introvert. She studies people very intently. I would call her pensive. She gets a bit cranky after having been in social situations for too long (just like me!)
  • is a delight to me and Phil (and all who meet her.)

  1. Can’t wait to meet her! She is precious Jan and it is no surprise to me that you are obviously doing a wonderful job. For as long as we’ve been friends, I’ve known you would make a great mom. Missing you around the office, but super jealous of your new assignment!

  2. Sounds like a great situation. I am proud of you and your family and don’t know anyone who deserves a great family more than you.
