I can’t believe this little princess is already one month old! Time is a funny thing when you have a new baby. While it feels like she has been a part of our family forever, it also feels like just yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital.
Shayne has been such a sweet and mellow addition to our otherwise hectic lives. I assume she has gotten so used to loud noises while in the womb (Kolton is a loud and rambunctious little guy) because she is able to sleep through just about anything. She sleeps about 4-5 straight hours at night before waking for her first feeding, and then usually every 2-3 hours after that. She weighs at least 9 1/2 pounds already so our pediatrician has given us the okay to let her sleep long stretches at night if needed. She loves to make eye contact when she is being held and is always busy studying and memorizing faces. She also loves simple patterns and dimmed lights. She loves to be swaddled for bedtime and naps, and smiles when I sing to her. She has been keeping calm at bath time and even during diaper changes, as long as she isn’t hungry.
Her eyes have began to lighten from a dark grey to a pale blue color. I think they will stay bluish, but it is still a little early to tell. She has beautiful brown hair, which Curtis is convinced will lighten up. I love watching her grow and explore the world around her with her eyes and little hands.
I love her more and more every day!
