Jenna is 1 month old!

I started typing up my birth story on my laptop. I’m already three pages into it and still need to finish it. Ugh, I hope I can finish it soon before the details fade.

But, Jenna’s already a month old! Holy cow. Time has flown by so quickly and we’re enjoying every minute of it. She’s already been on a road trip to Chicago, next week is Pennsylvania to meet her great grandma and then Austin, TX, at the end of the month.

She’s chubbing up nicely! We weighed her informally on the bathroom scale last night and she’s already at 10 lbs! She’s outgrown a few newborn sleepers, but can still fit in some outfits and we’ve ventured into the 0-3 clothing some. We’ve been cloth diapering full time since we’ve been home from the hospital and when we visited my friend, Lisa, in Chicago, I brought my entire NB stash and was able to make it through the entire trip only washing the load once with a few left to spare.

Jenna is a pretty laid back baby. She sleeps 3-4 hours stretches (sometimes 5) and grunts when she’s hungry. I wake up, nurse, and she’s back out. She poops soooooooooo much! The pediatrician reminded us that BF babies tend to poop at almost every diaper change, but I totally didn’t remember it being like this with Caleb.

It took a few tries, but Jenna is now a fan of bath time! She cries when I undress her, but as soon as she’s in the warm water, she just relaxes. She loves getting her hair washed and one time, she slept through her entire bath…eyes closed and everything!

Here are a few pictures until I can get my act together and finish my birth story.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas! Steve and I along with our honorary Jew of the day, Misti misti_k, met up for lunch at First Chinese BBQ. Steve ordered the usual orange chicken, I ordered the usualy pan fried flat noodles with beef, Misti ordered roasted duck and we were FINALLY able to order snow pea leaves…yum! The food was pretty good, I didnt not like their hot & sour soup. We all came to the overall consensus that Din Ho was still slightly better :o) We exchanged gifts and Misti got us a $50 gift cert to restaurant.com along with a cute calender.

Afterwards, we went to see The Spirit which I thought was kind of boring and I fell asleep for a few minutes. I liked Sin City, but this was definitely not on the same level. It had a few funny moments, but that’s about it.

That night, Steve and I watched more episodes of Lost, I did laundry and started packing.

I woke up early the next day at 5:45am to finish packing and Steve dropped me off at work. It was actually quite busy and then Steve picked me up and off to the airport we went! The parking lot was REALLY packed and while taking the shuttle, a guy was saying that they had turned him away from the parking lot at first because it was full. Crazy!

Once inside, it wasn’t very busy. We had dinner at Lefty’s and hung out around the gate until it was time to board.
