She's already 1 month

All about Lacey's first month

I cannot believe that our beautiful little girl has been here for a full month already. This has been the fastest month I have ever experienced. Although she is still so small, it feels like she has grown so much since she was born.

One month stats:

Height: 20.25 inches (10th percentile)
Weight: 7 lb 11.5 oz (8th percentile)
Head: 36.5 cm (54th percentile)
Clothes: Still fits in newborn size clothes and is still too small for any of her bigger clothes. She is still in newborn diapers, but we're thinking she will be in a size 1 diaper pretty soon.
Sleep: She usually will sleep 4-5 hours at a time during the night, but there have been a couple rough nights.
Milestones: Looking at our face instead of the wall, will follow us with her eyes and head, just starting to coo when she's awake, her legs can hold her weight for a couple seconds.

Firsts this month: (Everything)

Lacey's first holiday, other than her birthday, was Halloween. We were still in the hospital for most of Halloween, so we didn't dress her up. We also got to celebrate her first Thanksgiving during Lacey's first month.

She had her first bath, which she wasn't too thrilled about. She loves to take them now.

First Bath

She had her first visitor from out of town. Grandma Susie came to visit all the way from Utah.

  • Foot rubs, shushing, her binky, and getting her head rubbed when she is fussy
  • Her momma, she is definitely a mommy's girl
  • Eating, if she is awake she usually thinks that she wants to be eating
  • Her hands, she just found out that she can suck on them, and they are always in her mouth, even when she is trying to eat
  • Staring at her mommy and daddy, or at our wall with all our pictures
  • Getting kisses all day long from her mommy and daddy
  • Having her hands above her head when she's asleep
  • Getting her diaper changed in the middle of the night
  • Getting dressed
  • Being in her car seat when it's not moving
Things I want to remember:

  • When we were still in the hospital Lacey had a hat that said "new arrival on it" but the font on it made it look like it said "new arrwal". Scott started calling Lacey Annabelle Arrwal for some reason and we still sometimes refer to Lacey as annabelle as a joke.

  • Scott and I both were so happy the first time Lacey pooped. Scott even cried a little he was so glad.


  1. She is SO sweet! And I have to ask... Why were you so excited when she pooped? haha

  2. What an angel! Time does go by so fast when you have a baby. It looks like you're just soaking up all those precious newborn moments. I'm so thrilled for your family. Baby girls are SO much fun!

  3. So cute! I can't wait to see her in person. She's going to make my boys heads look huge! They're always 95% or more for head size. lol

  4. Katie, she didn't poop for the first 4 days and the doctors were worried about it, which made us worry about it.
