Georgia's One Month Well Check

Today was Georgia's one month well check with the pediatrician. She's actually 5 weeks old exactly today!

Weight: 9lbs 7oz (46%)
Length: 21.5 inches (45%)
Head Circumference: 15.4 inches (97%) ... they remeasured her head 3 times!

We are increasing her dose of Zantac slightly for her reflux due to her weight gain. If this doesn't start working better, then we will consider switching her reflux medication. Currently, she is having to sleep elevated because the moment she lays flat she has reflux issues (spitting up, hiccups, bubbles, fussiness & crying).

Other than that, she had a perfect check up! No shots today - woohoo!

Next appointment is in 1 month and she will get 3 shots plus the oral rotovirus vaccine.

Georgia Rae - 1 Month Old!

How has it already been one month since Georgia entered the world?!

Clothes: still in newborn size but very close to needing size 3mo
Diapers: merging into size 1
Nursing: breastfeeding like a pro every 2-3 hours
Weight: approximately 9.5lbs per home scale
Sleep: We are lucky that Georgia naps at the same time as her sisters and has the same bedtime at night. Georgia has her days and nights straight, thankfully. However, she's not very consistent with sleep cycle length yet. At night she typically sleeps in 2hr increments with one 3.5hr increment per night. Then, there are times she is up hourly.
Playtime: Georgia is not awake for very long periods of time. We do tummy time for short periods of time but she ends up crying after a few minutes.

Next pediatrician appt: Thursday morning for 1 month well-check.

Snuggle time with Meme
Georgia is doing great! She is nursing every 2 hours like a pro. Her sisters love her dearly and beg to hold her. Reese says she's "a silly baby" because of all the facial expressions Georgia makes.

Georgia - 4 Days Old

On Monday, June 16th Georgia had her 1st visit with our family pediatrician. Her weight was great and she was only down 5% out of the 10% normal weight loss after birth.

She finally got her cord clamp removed

After her check up we took the girls on our 1st family outing to the Parman Library playground for a picnic lunch. Little Miss G slept through the whole outing!

That evening I introduced Georgia to her crib for the 1st time!

Georgia - 3 Days Old

June 15, 2014 - Georgia is three days old & it's Father's Day!

After the girls and I cooked Cody is favorite breakfast for Father's Day, Georgia bought herself her 1st bath at home.

Once Georgia calmed down the girls took pictures with Daddy for Father's Day. 

We cannot get enough of this little girl's hair! It makes me laugh every time I see it!!

To get Scarlett more involved with baby G, we let her give the very 1st bottle of pumped breast milk. 

Worked like a charm and they both did great!
