One Month

(more photos to come soon).

So Ruby had her first well-baby visit this morning.
& the verdict is... she's tall and skinny.
She was in the 73rd percentile for height (22 in) and in the 18th percentile for weight (8lbs 13 oz).
She is otherwise very healthy.

Dear Ruby:
A few things about YOU at one month.
You're really starting to smile/talk responsively.
You love Mr. Giraffe. We watch and listen to him while I change your diaper.
You love bath time (most of the time). Your favorite part is when we put warm water on your head.
You're still in new born clothes.
You put weight on your legs, especially when you're mad.
You hold your head up like a champ.
I still can't decide what color your eyes are going to be. In some light they look blue, in some light they look brown.
You are super cranky when you're tired and fight going to sleep.
I LOVE your little toes.
Your fingernails grow like crazy and I can't possibly keep up with them.
You can only sleep for a long time if your swaddled tightly.
You have your daddy wrapped around your little finger.

Can't wait to see what the next month brings,
I love you Ruby!
