But, moving on. Here is my beautiful little lamb in her 1 month photo shoot. I can't believe how big she is already, it's going by way to quickly.

1 Month Photo shoot
I can't believe it, but my baby is 1 month old. A lot has happened in a month, and lot hasn't happened.... Isla has put on a good amount of weight and grown so much. She is getting really good at holding her head up and even sat up on my lap independently yesterday. We are working on rolling over. She has smiled at us and makes such funny noises- we call her squeak. She loves to look at her book of black and white stripes and has even used her hand to bat at things on her tummy time mat. She loves classical music, it;s the only thing that will settle her down in the car. The one thing we are still working on is sleep... she is a really really good sleeper, once we get her to sleep. She tends to like to stay up until 11 or 12, but then she will sleep until 8 or 9 with 2 or 3 feedings during the night. So, I get around 7 hours of sleep a night if I sleep as long as she does. I can't complain. My goal though is for her to sleep from 10-3 and then 3-8. I feel like this would be a really good routine for us. I definitely don't have a trick for getting her to sleep every night (except if I attempted to walk her outside in the baby bjorn every night, that makes her pass out) . I've tried a routine of a bath, massage and then nursing, but this really doesn't put her to sleep consistently. She just likes to be awake at night. We're going to keep trying though. All the books I'm reading (besides Babywise) reccomend doing whatever is neccessary to get the baby to sleep in the first month, and then in the 2-3 month setting up good sleep habits. So, that's what we are attempting to do.
