Zoey's 1 month old!

I can't believe  Zoey is already 1 month old. She has been such an easy baby for us. Even in the hospital and the first few nights home she didn't wake up at night to eat on her own...we had to wake her up. We freaked out the first night when she was home with us when I woke up at 5am and she was sleeping soundly. She nurses every 2 hours during the day and at night gives me around 4 hours in between feedings. I'm only getting up 2x max at night so I'm very happy about that.

Zoey is very laid back and loves her swing. She will sit in it content for hours. She also loves being held though, that's her favorite. She is a great nurser (Thank you LORD) and is happy to go along with whatever the rest of the family decides to do. She did her first "social smile" on June 10th, just 3 days before her 1 month birthday. That's sooner than Brodie did his which makes sense since girls like socializing more. Oh, and she's not in cloth diapers yet because her little legs are too skinny. :P Soon I hope.

Here are a few photos I've taken (I took a million others but won't post them because I'd overwhelm everyone with her cuteness hehehe).

Brodie 20 month Post

Brodie is 20 months old...HOLY COW!

He now has a baby sister to look after and is loving her (for the most part). In this past month we didn't do too much. 

The only notable thing was going to the Ramona fair.

Oh, and Nick went to the WAP with him. 
Brodie was his usual silly self. :)

Besides that we did a lot of sitting around on the couch while I recovered and working on our letters (his new obsession). He is very into letters, here are the ones he knows. 

*Knows - a, b, e, i, j, o, q, r, t, w, x
*Says just sound of/recognizes- d, h, m, p, s

He also counts to 4 :)

This month we have also been learning lots of body parts. He can point to and attempts to say these ones:


*Tongue (see below :P)
*Belly button

He became a lot more aggressive (biting, hitting, kicking) since Zoey's birth. I hope it calms down soon and he adjusts. Each day seems to be better and he is now requesting to hold her (by holding out his arms and saying "old er") more often. He gives her tons of kisses and is genuinely interested in her. The biting seemed to be short lived, and may have been associated with him getting his 4 canines in (2 are through and 2 are working their way out).


It's been a crazy month of change but its good all things considered. :)
