One Month

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.

Koren!!!! Guess who this is??? Sheri Rouw!!! Remember me??? Wow has it been a long time! I discovered your blog through I don't have an account...long story. Anyway, it was fun looking through your blog! Congrats on the new baby. Your kids are so cute!

We are living in South Dakota...ya, don't ask...and we have 3 kids. I have a 4 yr old girl and twin boys who are 15 months. Life is crazy with twins and I am finally starting to catch my breath after that first year. You'll have to take a look through our blog sometime when you get a chance. Maybe one of these days I'll start a facebook account too! I just hardly have time for blogging let alone facebook.

It will be fun catching up on your family and the past what...11 years or so?! Hope you are adjusting with the new little one and hope to hear from you sometime! My email is
