Carter Joy is 1 month! It is shocking how fast a month goes. I think they go even faster the more children you have. You might remember Crosby's 1st month here. Since we haven't been to the doctor this month, there are no height or weight stats. You'll just have to check back next month.
A few of her likes:
-Being sung to
-Riding in the car
-Noise (our house is NOT quiet)
-Sleeping in her own room
-Being swaddled snug
-Waiting (this is for anything and everything)
-Not having her paci
-Getting her arm out of a swaddle and hitting herself in the head
Carter is getting up at 10pm and 2 am to eat in the middle of the night. She has done a fantastic job so far about going back to bed after each feeding. We are so thankful to get 3-4 hour stretches of sleep each night. Daddy just has to go in a couple times to help out with the pacifier. We have just started CIO during naps only and I can only handle 5 minute increments.
As far as who she looks like, we get mixed reviews. We have our friends and family members who think she totally looks like Crosby, those who think she looks just like mommy, and even a few who think she looks like daddy. Carter has changed so much in just one short month, it's tough to say who she'll look most like.
Thank you for all of your well wishes and prayers! We love company, let us know when you're coming over! We have a very busy 2 year old who loves to play.
