Shiphrah at One Month

This is the first time Moriah got to hold Shiphrah today! She was so elated -- see her big smile. Shiphrah seemed to tolerate it fine for about 2 minutes.

Shiphrah turned one month old this past Friday the 17th. She is already 5 weeks and it's gone by so fast, but at the time it really didn't. When she was screaming at night for several hours, each minute seems like an eternity. She doesn't scream at night any more because we pick her up and rock her to sleep.

She has gained 2 pounds and 6 ounces since birth (9 lbs. 6 oz.) and grown 2 and 1/2 inches (21.5 inches). She smiles while getting her diaper changed and she doesn't mind her baths. She seems to struggle with pressure in her belly and finds sitting upright and lying on her back uncomfortable for any length of time. This makes her a little high maintenance for this Momma of three, but we continue to adjust. She's a little cutie.
