We're definitely going to have to make Abigail some nicer signs in the future: but here's her one-month photo. She weighs nearly 12 pounds, is 22.5 inches long, sleeps for about six hours solidly at night, is now smiling just in recognition rather than always being coaxed, and can ride in the baby carrier facing outward instead of just inward. It's hard to believe she can grow so fast!
Technically, she's actually six weeks old as of today, but since I've been slow with pictures this will have to suffice. It just means 2-month photos will be right on top of 1-month photos.
I've also updated the slideshow under the "Abigail Lauren Turner" tab if anyone wants to see more.
There are milestones for me, too. I'm down from 170 pounds at Abby's birth to 137. I'm able to wear more and more of my normal clothes, which is really nice. I can now run up and down stairs again, lift heavy objects (boy, I got really tired of the "no lifting" requirements!), take walks, drink normal amounts of water instead of what felt like a gallon a day, wash the kitchen floor, help Grandma Lila with showers, and stay awake past 9:00 at night without a nap. Don't laugh - these are big improvements!
