Elliot's First Month

Do you see that smile? Does it make you want to melt?!? I know I will be saying this on every monthly post, but the first month has come and gone and I cant believe it. Elliot is such a great baby. She sleeps a lot and eats every three hours. She is such a happy girl and we hardly hear a peep from her other than her little grunts. We called her a little piggy in the operating room and from her cry and noises and she is still sounding that way today.
For the first 3 weeks, literally, this child would have slept the entire 24 hours of a day other than to eat. She consistently wakes up every 3 hours, eats, burps, and back to bed. Last week she became more alert and aware of her surroundings. She has smiled for me a couple of times and even rolled over from her tummy to her back once. I think it was a fluke because she hasnt done it again. As of last week, she wakes up every 3rd hour, eats, and stays awake for about an hour and a half and then back to bed. At night, shes pretty good at going right back to bed. She even slept from 8-2am one night! I was in heaven getting that much sleep!
We love you so much little sister! We cant wait to watch you grow and become your own little person!
