Lyla's 1st Month




Well, our little Lyla is 1 month old today. We are having so much fun with her. I can tell time is really going to fly this time!

So far, she has...
SCREAMED
visited the dr on day 3 weighing in at 6 lb 9 oz
CRIED
visited the dr at 2 1/2 weeks weighing in at 7 lbs 9 oz
CRIED
started sleeping for 6 hours at night
POOPED & CRIED
slept through 2 movies at the theater
CRIED
grew out of her size newborn footed pajamas ONLY - this girl is LONG!
SCREAMED
relaxed during 1 concert
CRIED & POOPED
been diagnosed with colic - Did I mention she screams, cries & poops?
CRIED
been to the chiropractor 4 times
And now she is finally RELAXING, SMILING & SLEEPING! Ahhh!!!!

I'm sure this will embarass her someday, but isn't that what parents are for? I'm not sure what is helping with the colic. I got off dairy, started eating healthier & have been taking Lyla to the chiropractor. I am not stopping any of these for fear she will start screaming again. I did try to get her one month picture yesterday and she wasn't happy about it. I think she is adorable no matter what...

Oh April she is adorable!! I'm so sorry she has colic, BUT I am glad something you are doing is working!

hang in there! All that crying will soon turn into singing, cheerleading, giggles, talking non-stop, girly screams, and contagious laughter. That's what little girls do best. She's just preparing her lungs ( and your ears) for all that fun stuff to come.

Hi April,
Hope things are getting easier with Lyla. I know what colic is like all too well! I sent you a little something for her. Hope it still fits (I am so late!). We miss you guys and let me know if you need any colic tricks... I've tried them all!
