Our sweet baby girl has hit the one month mark! I find it so hard to believe that she’s already been with us for a month, but I also find it absolutely unbelievable that she’s only been with us for a month – She’s just such a humungous part of our lives now, that it’s strange to think of life without her! It’s without hesitation, that I can say the past month has been one of the best of my life. Of course, it has come with difficulties and struggles, but the good easily outweighs the bad. She’s growing like a bad weed, and her sweet personality is blooming more and more by the day! 🌸
To Our Addie Girl:
You are officially one month old! You are already very alert and bright eyed while you’re awake… Your eyes are still a beautiful shade of blue, and I have my fingers crossed that they will stay blue, just like your mama, your nana, and your great-grandma! You are very demanding when it comes time to eat – After all, you’re a growing girl! You’re still wearing NB clothes, but you’ve moved up to a size 1 in diapers. Speaking of diapers, you like the have yours changed immediately after you poop or pee, and you’re not afraid to let us know. You don’t cry very much – you mostly just grunt, groan, and growl at us. You’re still blessin’ mom and dad with 6-8 hours of sleep at night 🙌🏻 (We are definitely savouring every bit of this while it lasts). You love to lay on your play mat, and watch the fireplace. You love to take your naps in the Mamaroo, while listening to country music… If the music stops, your nap usually does too. You love car rides, and usually fall asleep right away once we start driving. You love going for walks in your stroller with mama and Scout. You loooove snuggling, especially with daddy. You’re starting to give us some sweet, little smiles, and it absolutely melts my heart. 💕
In the past month, you’ve brought me more happiness than I ever could have imagined. You’ve made me see life through a new lens, and everyday I am reminded how blessed I am to have this life, to have you, to have your dad. My heart is so full.
I spend a significant amount of time each day thinking about how lucky we are to be your parents. I can’t explain how much joy it brings me when I think about how we get to spend the rest of our lives watching you grow, and learn.
You are so loved, Miss Adeline.
P.S. I know this is a day late. Forgive me, I am battling a head cold, and haven’t had much ambition or energy to do anything besides cuddle my babe.
