Now for the fun stuff that I never shared...her newborn & 1 month pics! We went to the Picture People to get her newborn photos done because we got a nice gift card from a friend as a baby gift. I ended up LOVING the pics & spending waaay more $$ on them than I went in there intending to, lol. Here are some of my favorite shots (she was 12 days old!):
Right around 3'ish weeks, she started having MAJOR gas issues. She also started spitting up more than what I consider normal, so we told her doctor, who said that she probably had mild acid reflux. We are still slowly, but surely trying to get her gas & acid reflux issues under control & working on establishing a bedtime routine. At birth, she was 4 lbs. 13 oz. & by her 1 month appointment, she was up to 6 lbs. 4.5 oz.! During the month, she started to smile & practiced strengthening her neck muscles during tummy time.
I'll be better about doing these updates once I get caught up & they'll eventually be more detailed & better outline her milestones, but for now I just want to get a quick update posted. And now I must run because it's almost bedtime for Baby AJ & mama still needs to shower! 'Till next time!
