One month update

What a difference a month makes!

Ellie had her one month checkup today. She weighs 10.5 pounds and measures 22 inches. This put her in the 81st percentile for weight and 70th for height. Thankfully her head circumference was in the 50th because her parents both have huge heads! She didn't like her shot, but she enjoyed the other events of the appointment. She gave the doctor a huge smile and he confirmed that yes, that is a real smile!

We had a great weekend. On Saturday we celebrated our anniversary by dropping Ellie off at Grandma Mars' house and had a date night all to ourselves. We saw The Proposal and ate at the Bonefish Grill. It was so nice to have a quiet dinner where we could both eat at the same time and attempt to talk about non baby stuff.

Ellie slept 8 hours on Saturday night and 6 on Sunday night. I might be a bad Mom for letting her sleep that long, but since her weight was great today, I'm not planning on waking her up to feed her! She's also been enjoying playing on her activity mat. She'll play for hours and especially enjoys looking at herself in the mirror (what girl doesn't?)

  1. That is great! It's good to see that she's healthy and growing and that you and Scott got a little couple time. You three take care!
