Ava - One Month Old

I can't believe how fast Ava's first month went by! She is such an angel, and despite the sleep deprivation, I have enjoyed every moment with her. She is super alert and is generally such a happy baby. I love her sweet little smile :).

We are going to take pictures each month so we can see how Ava grows and changes throughout the year. Here are my favorites from the first month:

One Month Stats:
  • 10 pounds, 15 ounces
  • 21 3/4 inches long
  • 95th percentile height and weight!
Likes:
  • The Nap Nanny - This was one of the best things we registered for! She loves sleeping in it, and we even used it in her bassinet for the first couple weeks. I highly recommend it!!
  • Being walked "in laps" around the house
  • The sound of running water - This may not be very environmentally friendly, but turning on the kitchen sink often made her stop crying...so turn on the sink I did :).
  • Having her hair washed
  • Soothie pacifiers
  • Riding in the car
  • Staring at Mr. Elephant during tummy time
Dislikes:
  • Having her diaper changed
  • Sleeping :)
Milestones:
  • Lifting her head and turning it head from side to side during tummy time
  • The "social smile" - I swear Ava smiled at me around 2 1/2 weeks, but she definitely did at 3 1/2 weeks. Here is the video to prove it:

Funny/Random Tidbits:
  • Ava snorts whenever she gets really worked up. It is hilarious!

About Me

My name is Catherine, but most of my friends call me Cat. I was born and raised in Austin, went to TCU, and ended up in Dallas for law school (where Josh and I met). I decided that being an attorney was not my cup of tea and pursued a career in legal marketing instead. I am now a mother of two attempting to balance family with a full-time job, which is always an adventure. I love: my sweet babies, handsome husband, very large family, and fabulous friends; trying new restaurants; wine; TCU football; holidays; cooking; pajamas; La Croix; reading; coffee; podcasts; Central Market; carbs; the beach; mani/pedis; Anthropologie; binge-worthy TV shows; trivia; French 75s; Pinterest; cheese boards; The Ticket; dancing; Sprinkles cupcakes; The Texas Rangers; fresh flowers; thunderstorms; naps; Tex-Mex; the Texas Hill Country; porch-sitting; ranch dressing; throwing parties; and my job. I hate: working-mom guilt; snakes; heights; waking up early; ignorant people; stomach bugs; paper cuts; green fruit; bad hair days; snoring; the sound of people eating (Misophonia); Miracle Whip; scary movies; bad drivers; pulpy OJ; trimming baby fingernails; and working out. I think that sums it up.
