This past month is has been a blur. Fall is my favorite time of year and I haven't even spent any time to notice it. I hope this is just an adjustment to motherhood and won't turn into a permanent thing. I just enjoy Fall too much. I grew up in New England and live in Upstate New York. I can't imagine life without four seasons. I have barely noticed the colors change and now the leaves are falling at a very fast pace. Our lawn is covered with them. I took the pic out the window last week and the branches are a lot more bare.
Fall is also the start of English Premier Soccer. We cheer for Chelsea. My brother-in-law roots for Crystal Palace. Hubby has taken a liking to Crystal Palace but Chelsea is still his favorite and they played each other this weekend. The only baby Chelsea gear we had was in size 12-18 months but it fit over her pajamas. It worked. And Chelsea won so that was good.
The little one just turned one month. She had her one month checkup and is now 8 lbs 6 oz and is 21 and 1/4 inches. She is developmentally on track and we are starting to set a sleeping routine. We were letting her sleep whenever and we were noticing she was starting to get overstimulated. Her pediatrician said it was time to start putting her down at the same time. She has grown out of her newborn clothes and in 0-3 month size. I am torn between being sad that she is outgrowing her newborn clothes and being excited at all her new milestones.
