Hazel – 1 month

IMG_7394In case you missed it… we have a new baby! Little Hazel was born about a month ago, so I suppose it’s time to take up blogging again. Maybe one of these days I’ll go back and fill you all in on our very exciting last year, but for now, I’m gonna stick to updating on little Hazel. Hazel has been a fun baby. She’s quite a bit calmer than her sisters were at this age and it’s been fun to just sit and hold her and enjoy that she isn’t crying. At one month she’s working hard at holding her little head up. She eats about every two hours, more often in the morning and evening when she’s gearing up for a nap and less often in the afternoons when we sometimes get 3 or 4 hours without her needing to eat. She sometimes will sleep 5 hours at night. Once she even did 6 hours I think, but most nights she does 3 1/2 or 4 hours her first sleep, and then 2-3 hours at a time after that. At two and a half weeks she was 8 lb 10 oz, almost her birth weight, but I have no idea how much she weighs now. I hope it’s a lot more with how much she eats! She started cooing last week and she’s been grinning at me when she sees me or thinks she’s about to be fed for about two weeks now. So far she is not such a fan of baths. Out of the three we’ve given her she has only calmly endured one, but hopefully that will change soon. She is also extremely adored by her older sisters. Especially Avery.
