1 Month

Aubrey turned one month old yesterday! So far, she has been much more laid back and less demanding that Luke was, but over the last couple of weeks she has let us know that she has a voice that demands attention...in other words, she's crying a lot more :)

We went to the doctor today for a short check up and one shot. She weighed 10 lbs (80th percentile) and was 21 1/2 inches long (60th percentile), which means she's gained 1 lb and grown 2 inches since she was born.

Luke was feeling a little left out at the doctor's office, so right before the doctor left, he decided to trip over the stair on the examination table, fall and bust his chin! His chin and tongue were pretty bloody, but thank goodness it was just a bad scrape and bruise, not stitches necessary. The doctor checked him out and bandaged up his chin.
This is not him crying after he hurt his chin...this is how pleasant he is when he wakes up from a nap that wasn't long enough.

Back to Aubrey...
I'm going to try to take her picture in this chair every month to see how she grows.

(didn't get a newborn picture of her in the chair, but she's wearing the same onesie)

Aubrey has started to try to focus on our faces, and she made a sound the other day while Ryan was holding her that sounded just like she was saying, "Hey". Luke is still pretty good with her, he's already figured out that there are only 3 things that newborns do: eat, sleep, & poop. Anytime he says her name (ba-bee or Au-ree) it's followed by "gunk"(milk), "ni-nite", or poo-poo...he's very good at telling us what she needs!

I think Aubrey was trying to say "I miss Aunt Anna"

She is a cutie!

Oh, wow! So does that mean you had to pay two co-pays for both check-ups? I guess if you have to have an accident, the doctor's office is a pretty good spot.

I think it's hilarious that Luke calls milk "gunk." My daughter called it "guck" for the longest. Too cute!

She is too cute! I cannot believe it has already been a month.

She's gotten so big already!!!

And don't you HATE it when they get hurt at the doctor's office? I always feel like they're looking at me with suspicion of why I wasn't watching my child...

Not that Ali's gotten hurt THAT much at the Doctor's office...I'm just paranoid :)
