Baby Girl is one month! This month has flown by. It's hard to remember a time without Brynn in our lives.
Brynn is an eating machine. She was 5 pounds 10 ounces when she was born and 5 pounds 6 ounces when we left the hospital. By October 6 (one week after she was born) she was back up to her birth weight. At her two week appointment (the doctor hoped she would be back to birth weight by this appointment) she was 6 pounds 9 ounces and the doctor was very impressed. I'm not sure what she weighs now because Tate broke our scale but I'm guessing she's closing in on 8 pounds.
She is very alert and is awake much more than Tate was at this age.
Along with being an eating machine, she's a pooping champion. She is always pooping. Sometimes she even gets some distance with undiapered poops. Take it from me, poop shooting out of a baby's bum is both terrifying and hilarious. And gross.
