Weight: I think about 9.5 pounds...she was just under nine pounds at her appointment a week ago.
Height: Last week they measured her at 20.5 inches still, but I think she may be a little longer than that. Her pediatrician seems to think they were extra generous at birth....we think they were stingy at her appointment :)
Nicknames: Ella, Ellie, pumpkin, sister, baby
Eating: Big eater just like her sister! She latched on just minutes after she was born and would be permanently connected if I let her. I have not really been keeping track of her feedings (#secondkid), but I would say she eats usually every 2-3 hours...sometimes less and sometimes more. She usually eats twice during the night.

Diapers: She is now in size 1 since we ran out of newborns. We have used pampers and huggies. She has Joye legs, so the size 1 diapers were a little big at first, but are working fine now. Still in newborn clothing, although she has been put in a few 0-3 month outfits *ahem daddy*

Social: Ellasyn has been able to meet so many people in her first month of life. She has met all three sets of grandparents, two sets of great grandparents, uncles, aunts, family friends and baby friends :)
Likes: She loves breastfeeding. She also likes her car seat and swing. She loves to sleep while being held. She also likes to pull mommy's hair and put her hands wherever they aren't supposed to go. She likes to be outside and she loves the bath!
Dislikes: She seems to really dislike waiting for food. She is also not a fan of getting poked by her sister...And sadly enough she doesn't really seem to be a fan of her pacifier. In fact, she often gags when we try and give it to her #dramaqueen
Mommy: Well if you read Ellasyn's birth story, then you know I had a rough few weeks after she was born. C-sections are no joke and I was pretty miserable. The baby blues also hit me really hard this time. After about the first two weeks, things started to get a little better every day.

Daddy: Well we had daddy home for almost 19 straight days! Between spring break and the time he took off, it was so weird to have him go back to work. This is one of his busiest times of the year with his annual golf tournament and end of the year events. Plus, he started back to school last month and wakes up extra early every morning to do schoolwork. He is a rockstar, but we miss him!
What we're looking forward to: Summer time!!! We can't wait to do some fun things, go on a family vacation and have lots of time with daddy!
