Yes, Jordan is already one month old. Here's what we've accomplished in that amount of time. Our umbilical chord came off at about 8 days, yay. At 5 days she slept 6 hours at night, but that hasn't happened again, oh well. She had a 2 week check up and weighed 7 pounds 10 ounces, so not quite up to birth weight. She's breast feeding so well, and has had a bottle about 3 times when mommy just didn't have anything else to give. We've found that broccoli and possibly large amounts of cow's milk give her gas and make her cranky, not fun. I think we've found a sleeping pattern. There are 3 naps a day, a nice long one in the middle, and she sleeps about 4 hours at night then gets up every two. She's still sleeping in a bassinet in our room but has been taking naps in her crib. I'm waiting for her to sleep a little longer at night so I don't have to get up so much to feed her. And we've graduated from newborn diapers to size one. She's getting bigger but I don't quite know her exact weight. Jordan is a sweet joy and addition to our family. Ethan and Reagan are so wonderful with her. They don't get in her face or overdo it with the affection. We love our little peanut.
