Ruthie is one month old!

First, an update on Ruthie's diaper issues. She has not had nearly as much blood. Probably once out of every 4 diapers may have a little blood so that is great. Also, the dr. said she does not have a bacterial or viral infection as far as they can tell with the preliminary reading of the stool sample and we will know more by Tuesday when we go for Ruthie's one month appointment.

Now onto the reason for this posting- Ruthie is a whole month old! I took pics which I plan to do each month and then add some special memories from the month that I will want to remember later. So here we go with Month 1!

The dress I put her in is one I wore when I was little. Also, here is Cinderella who will hopefully make an appearance each month (if not more often-I'm really hoping she will love Cinderella like her momma).

I put her in her swing and this is what she did with her hands! adorable!

You love to swing.
You love music- we have been listening to Louis Armstrong and Michael Buble.
You still do not like taking baths, I would say you hate them with the way you scream when we put you in the water.
Momma sings "You are My Sunshine" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" to you and Daddy sings "The Rainbow Connection" along with many other songs from The Muppet Movie and hymns.
You love to snuggle up on daddy's chest and curl up in a little ball.
You love to eat!
You have been sleeping most nights for 4 to 5 hours between feedings and Momma and Daddy are very very very happy about that. Keep up the good work!
Maggie doesn't know what to think of you just yet. She likes to sniff and lick you sometimes, but ignores you mostly. She will eventually love you when you start dropping food for her to eat.
Momma likes to dress you in girly dresses, bows, flower, and headbands.
You love to be held and rocked.
You weighed 6 lbs and 10 oz last time we went to the doctor on February 14th. That is a whole 5 oz more than your birth weight. yay!
You cry sometimes, but not too much. Really only when you are so tired you can't fall to sleep and when we try to bathe you.
You have met all of you grandparents and your uncle, but have yet to meet your aunts. This weekend we are going to meet the Stout extended family, in April we will meet the Greene extended family, hopefully sometime by the summer though you will finally get to meet your aunts (all of them are so very excited about you being here, and all want to be your favorite aunt! Good luck with that one!)
Momma and Daddy love you so much and so much more than we could have ever even imagined! You are our sweet little Ruthie Roo!
