Isabella's First Month

Isabella Grace turned 1-month old on October 25th, 2012.  I have been meaning to write about some of her milestones so that I won't forget them later.

Weight: Per her two-week appointment on 10/12/12, Isabella weighed 8 lbs., 1 oz.
Height: Per her birth date on 9/25/12, Isabella was 19.75 inches long.

What have I been up to?
  • On October 13th, 2012, Isabella embarked on her first road trip to York, South Carolina.  It was also her first over night trip.  She spent some quality time with her Maw Maw, Paw Paw, Aunt Riss, and Aunt Allie.  She also met close family friend, Melissa, and her daughter Hannah.
  • Isabella received her first bath within her first month of life.  She loves receiving a warm bath as she finds it to be very relaxing; however, despises the part after where she gets lotioned up and clothed for the night.
  • She had her first photo shoot on October 3rd, 2012, where she posed for two hours.  Hey, it is not easy being a diva! On this day, she had her first shopping venture with mommy and Maw Maw.  Yes, she went to Carter's to stock up on more clothes, and out for lunch at Macaroni Grill.  She did great!
  • She has been working on building her neck skills through "tummy time," although she is not a fan of it by any means.  Oh well, Mama said that nothing comes easy in life! You have to work hard at everything.

What do I love?
  • Isabella loves her pacifier when she is upset as she finds it to be calming.
  • Obviously, bath time!
  • Isabella loves to be rocked by her daddy in the evening before she goes to sleep.
  • Isabella loves her swing, as it is also soothing to her.  Her best naps are in the swing!
  • For the most part, she loves car rides and does well on them.  She has to have her pacifier though, or she gets very upset.
  • Her play time mat- I think she finds the colors to be fascinating.  When she is placed on the mat, she looks around at everything, makes sweet little noises, and kicks those legs and flails those arms!

What am I looking forward to in the next four weeks?
  • Isabella is excited to participate in her first presidential election on Tuesday, November 6th.
  • Isabella is looking forward to spending more quality time with her grandparents and aunts.
  • She is excited to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 24th, with both of her families! She has the perfect dress picked out.  ;)
  • Finally, she looks forward to growing and developing more! And her mommy does too.

She is too cute! I can't believe how much she looks like you. I hope you are keeping a baby book for her with all of these milestones! I used to just love looking at mine every so often when I was a kid :)
