Carly at 1 month

It has been one whole month since we had Carly! She has rewarded us by sleeping 3-5 hours at a time at night! How thoughtful of her. She has been awake more during the day. She likes to stare off at nothing in particular. Although, if she's under a fan (and it doesn't have to be on) she stares intently at it. After about 15-30 minutes of being awake, she all of a sudden thinks that she's hungry again. She is a vivacious eater. She has reached 10 pounds and I think will be a chunker! So far, she is a pretty good baby. We can only hope that this will continue as any parent would hope.
Landon and Cody have adjusted perfectly to her. For the most part, they still ignore her. Landon only pays attention to her when she's crying in which he'll state, "she's hungry". He will also pet her hair and say "hey, hey, hey" or "shhh, shhh, shhh" imitating what I say to her to try and calm her down. It's quite funny. Cody tried to imitate Landon sometimes when he's trying to calm Carly down. Overall, they are kind to her except for the occasional forgetfulness that she is in fact there on the couch and must not be sat on. That's why I'm usually nearby.
I think most days, Landon is bored because we don't go out nearly as much as we used to. When you went somewhere almost everyday (gym, grocery shopping, the library, friend's houses, lunch, etc.) you get bored at home! I've been trying to take the kids to the park as much as possible.
And that is the first month with 3 kids.
Although Carly has a pacifier in her mouth in one of these pictures, she does not actually take them, just like her brothers.
The boys thought Carly's bows were cute and wanted to try them out themselves. These are one of those pictures they're probably going to get embarrassed about.
