In case you can't tell from the pictures, little Alice has grown. She now weighs 10 lbs. and 6 oz. Just to give you an idea, Lucy weighed 10 lbs. and 5 oz. at her two-month check-up, and Lucy weighed a whole pound more at birth. So, yeah, Alice is definitely caught-up! She is also 22 inches long.
We also weighed Lucy while we were there (why not?), and she now weighs 25 lbs. During Alice's appointment, Lucy wore latex gloves and "assisted" the nurses. I wish I had gotten pictures. We think Lucy would make a great pediatrician one day.
When Alice was about one week old, M's friend Dan came and took some lovely photos of our family. We wanted them to feel really natural, to capture our daily happenings. We tried not to stage anything, and most of the photos are candid. I love how they turned out! Here's a little peek...
We are so thankful to Dan for being so generous with his time and gifts. And we are so thankful that little Alice is a part of our lives... It feels like she always has been. I can't believe she will be two months old soon! What in the world.
Our sweet little Alice Pearl is one month old! It feels like the time has flown...
Here are some things to know about Alice at one month...
- We have not had her weighed since her two-week doctor's appointment, but we guess she weighs about seven pounds. She is growing so fast! Some of her little newborn clothes are already getting a little snug.
- Alice is finally nursing! Hooray! No more pumping for me. She finally got the hang of it after about three weeks.
- Alice's temperament is very calm and sweet. She loves to snuggle.
- the play mat
- her big sister
- tummy time
- diaper changes
- being left alone
A lot of people have asked us who Alice looks like. She does not look much like her big sister, Lucy. My parents say she looks a lot like me when I was a baby. I'll let you decide for yourselves...
