One Month


Sweet girl you are one month old and I can’t believe how quickly that month passed!  Here are a few things you’ve been up to in the past 30 days:

  • You started to move out of newborn clothes into 0-3 month at the end of your first month
  • Still in newborn diapers
  • Nursing was MUCH easier this time around but you also do just fine with a bottle when Momma needs a break!
  • In the past week you have started to have more ‘wake’ time during the day.  During this time you like to just look around(still a bit spastic in movements) and sometimes we get to hear your sweet little ‘la’ noises.  You love to watch Taylor and she is normally right next to you during this time.
  • You sleep through anything and any noise that your sister makes.  It amazes everyone how laid back you are and you only cry if you are hungry(boy do you let us know), dirty diaper, need to get a burp out, or if your clothes are being changed.  Unlike your sister, you do not like to be ‘nakee’ right now.  You have even given me a few 6 hour stretches at night of sleep.  This is a HUGE improvement from some of the 45 minute intervals that showed up around 2 weeks old. 
  • You love to snuggle with whoever will hold you, but mostly Dad.  The two of you could spend the entire weekend in the recliner sleeping away.  I am amazed at the ways he has figured out how to play with Taylor while still snuggled in the recliner with you.
  • Nicknames: little sista(not sure if it’s more Jamaican or gangsta), Pickle, E, Chubalita(Lita’s nickname for you), Elizabear, little birdie
  • Our most common question(besides does she look like Taylor) right now is what we are going to call you.  I guess no one actually goes by the name Elizabeth, but some form of nickname of it.  My best friend did some research one day and came up with a list(bad ones omitted) of possibilities.  Here are some of your potential nicknames: Bee, Beth, Bethey, Betsy, Bette, Betty, Ela, Eli, Eliaz, Elisa, Elise, Eliza, Ella, Elle, Ellie, Elsa, Elsie, Ely, Isabel, Iz, Izabel, Izabeth, Izzie, Izzy, Leeza, Libby, Lila, Lili, Lilibeth, Lilie, Lilla, Lillah, Lilli, Lillibeth, Lillie, Lilly, Lily, Lisa, Lisbeth, Lisette, Lissy, Liz, Liza, Lizbee, Lizz, Lizzie, Lizzy, and Zabe.  Guess only time will tell.
  • Quote of the month came from Taylor when she shared her beloved bunny with you and you spit up on it she said ‘Mommy, she milked on my bunny!’  This might not be too funny to non-parents of the world, but it had me rolling with Taylor’s creativity of words and still makes me laugh.  I wonder if this is one of those moments that we will embarrass Elizabeth with when she brings boys home for us to meet.
  • You like to give me the Stink Eye


Here are a few photos from your busy month



After your chair picture, Taylor had to have her turn.


And for a little flashback comparison.  Here are some pictures of Taylor during her first month.  There’s no denying they are sisters, but I see Elizabeth’s small differences.  I can’t wait to see what her personality is going to be like!

So sweet. I can't believe it has already been a month. I have a little girl in my class this year who goes by Elizabeth.
