It's been a busy month for all of us as we get used to being a family of three. Thankfully, we had help for the first two weeks (aren't parents the best?), and now we're settling into a nice little routine. Our girl is already growing up before our eyes - I love it and hate it at the same time.
While I'd love to keep her teeny forever, it's been a blast seeing her grow and change! Watching her is my new favorite way to spend the day. In just a few weeks she's learned to focus on things, perfected rolling to her side, figured out how to lift her head, and discovered how to make a few sounds - her favorite is blowing raspberries...we get lots of those when she's angry (adorably angry, that is). She's also shown us a few priceless smiles (she particularly likes smiling at her Daddy), and we've noticed that her hair seems to be getting lighter while her eyes seem to be getting darker.
In addition to all that growing and changing, we did tons of fun things this month! We took the Bird on her first outing (breakfast at a cute spot downtown - fried green tomato Eggs Benedict, 'nuff said), gave her her first real bath, visited with several friends, went to church, and had newborn photos taken (post on those to come). Baby girl is a trooper both in the car and out and about - she loves her carseat and loves being wrapped even more - so we can go just about anywhere! We love doing life with her - she makes everything better.
I can't believe how fast time goes now, but this girl is teaching us to live in the moment and enjoy each day (and sometimes each night) to the fullest. You are our sunshine, Baby Girl! Happy One Month!
And now for a few candid memories:

She has my heart. Excited to see what the next month brings!
