1 month today!

Today* you are one month old! I can’t believe it- it has been the fastest month of my life. You came into this world and completed our family. Your sweet nature is a joy to be around. Since day one, you have been a relaxed, happy-go-lucky baby. You only cry if you’re starving or your binky happens to drop out of your mouth. For the first 3 weeks of your life, you slept a lot and woke up only to eat and then went right back to a peaceful slumber. In the past week you’ve spent much more time with your eyes wide open, taking in your new world. Nothing phases you: from your big sister testing her lungs with a high pitched squeal that can be heard miles away.

When you were born, I was surprised by the amount of thick, dark hair you had. Your first cries were music to Dad’s & my ears. You scored well on your first “test” with APGAR scores of 9 and 9. When I was finally allowed to hold you, 35 minutes after your birth in the C-section recovery room, you took to nursing like a pro. We were a match made for each other from the beginning.

Thank you for being a dream baby. People always scare you into believing your second or third will be harder than your first– you’ve proven this theory wrong. Your brother & sister is just as in love with you as Daddy & me. From day one he has taken you under his wing, smothering you in kisses and always checking on his “baby & you're sissy {big sister}”saying “HI BABY {loudly}!” It warms my heart to know you will have each other for the rest of your lives.

Your first month has been wonderful. I can’t wait for us to do so many fun mother/daughter things in the future, but I wish I could push the slow down button on life right now. You and your sister and BIG brother are growing up too fast…

I’ll love you always,
Mama
