I can’t hardly believe it, but Daphne is already 1 month old!! She seems to be a really good baby! She is finally awake about every 3 hours to eat (about once a day I have to wake her) and is eating really well! Her little cheeks have filled out and she is just a little more solid. She certainly prefers to be upright when held – either sitting in a lap or up on a shoulder. Unless she is sleepy, she does not want to be cradled.
Her nighttime sleeping is okay. We have had a rough couple of nights with her crying quite a bit between feedings. I bought a swaddle me blanket because she sleeps better if she is swaddled. The regular blankets just were cutting it anymore because she could wiggle free.
She doesn’t love the pacifier – sometimes she wants it when she is trying to sleep. She did suck her thumb today! Gasp! Not her fingers like Norah and Lucy, but her thumb. I do intend to encourage the paci since it is clearly not easy to break the finger/thumb sucking habit.
She already seems to enjoy watching her big sisters run around. She follows them with her eyes and kicks her legs in excitement.
