Maria is much more aware when she is awake now. She had started to smile in response to things that we do, like beep her nose. She is a good sleeper once she goes down for the night but sometimes it takes a while to settle down in the evening. She gets up once, occasionally twice and usually gives us at least one 5+ hour stretch at night. Yeah! Her older sisters like to hold and entertain her by showing her all the toys.

Mia carries on the family tradition of chunky babies but she is longer than her big sisters were at this age.
Mia’s 1 month checkup is tomorrow so I will update with her official height/weight stats tomorrow. She is eating well and sleeping …. well she is eating well! She is sleeping slightly longer stretches at night, 3-5 hours, once she actually falls asleep. She still fusses and cries at least once a night and doesn’t want to go settle down and go to sleep. Mia shows no interest in a pacifier so hopefully she will find her thumb to suck or learn to settle herself down soon.
Mia is alert during the day for an hour or two at a time now. She is getting good at holding her head up and has even smiled a couple of times. She likes to watch her sisters who like to talk/sing to her and show her all her toys.
Here are a few pictures of Mia, including one of the dreaded tummy time.
