Matilda @ 1 month

I can't believe that our little girl turned 1 month old on Monday!
It seems like just yesterday that she was born.
So new... squarking and gurgling as she made her way into the world.
Into our lives.
Now here she is.
Much loved.
Growing and changing before our eyes.

At 1 month Matilda...

  • weighs 4805grams / 10lb 9.25oz (85th percentile)
  • is 55.5cm long (85th percentile)
  • has a head circumference of 37cm (~60th percentile)  
  • Still fits into her newborn/0000 clothes and newborn nappies... but is starting to need the length of 000 in full onsies 
  • Has lots of nick names: Tilly, Tilly Bear, Tiddly, Tiddles, Little Miss, Till Dogs (don't like this one!), Blossom, Princess, Tills, Tilster, Sweet One, T.D, T.B, Boofa, Smiley Pants
  • Lifts her head and holds it still without wobbling
  • Snuggles into your neck when having a cuddle
  • Feeds 1&1/2 - 3 hourly
  • Sleeps around 7 hours a night- usually broken into one 3&1/2hr chunk and a few 1&1/2-2hr chunks  
  • Recognises mum and dad's voice and turns her head to find it
  • Stops crying most quickly when cuddled by mum or dad
  • Is getting chubbier! She doesn't look so long now that she has some thighs and rolls on her!
  • Looks at mum and dad from her bassinete and follows with her eyes 
  • Doesn't mind travelling in the car 
  • Looks around when walking in the stroller
  • Makes lots of eye contact
  • Has lost more of the 'peach fuzz' on her arms.
  • Make funny 'eh' sounds when she is being burped
  • Has clear skin and a clear umbilical cord site
  • Grunts and squeaks at funny times
  • Is told everyday how beautiful she is and how much we love her
  • Loves the bath
  • Enjoys tummy time. In the last week she has learned to lift her head and turn her head from side to side 
  • Has a gift of explosive poos! Several times she has 'painted the floor' during a nappy change.
  • Cries when there's a problem but usually that's all
  • Smiles and is beginning to giggle at times, but usually when finishing a feed.
  • Attracts lots of comments of facebook!

I decided when we were pregnant that I wanted to take a photo of Tilly each month in the laundry basket so that we could see her growth. I'm so glad that we're doing this. Look at how much she has grown in only one month!

Her head! Her cheeks! Her length and width! 
But at the same time, there are similarities. Her hair still falls mainly the same. She still holds her arms legs in similar positions.

What will she look like at 2 months? Wait and see!

We love you Tilly Bear. xoxo
Note: I will write her birth story out one day and post it here.
