Already One Month Old

After The Bath – 08/22

She really loves her baths, until it’s time to wash her hair… Then there is fussing. She’s very opinionated, just like Mommy.

After her bath, she gets wrapped up in a big warm towel and once she’s dry, I massage calming lavender lotion onto her smooth skin. She loves getting her feet massaged.

Visiting Uncle Zach – 08/25

I visit my brother every weekend almost. He has a pool. Need I say more? 😛 My 2 nieces (8 and 10) love their new cousin too. Who could resist this adorable face?

Watching TV With Daddy – 08/26

She loves watching TV, especially with Daddy. This little girl is going to be a total couch potato. She watches Sponge Bob Square Pants for hours, so content. As soon as a different show comes on, she starts fussing. It’s kind of humorous!

Napping On The Couch – 08/27

Already one month old. I can’t even believe it. I mean, it seems like it was just yesterday I was fat and pregnant! I don’t like how quickly time is flying by… I feel like I’m going to turn around and suddenly she’ll be 18 years old. I don’t want that to happen. I’m just trying to soak up every minute of her.

My Little Princess

My little princess is too good to be true. She’s just so well behaved. I mean, yes she has her fussy moments when she’s looking for the booby, but for the most part, she is a really content and happy baby.

She sleeps from about 1am till about 10am, only waking up to nurse every hour or two during that time. Then during the day, she stays awake for 3 or 4 hours, sleeps for 3 hours, wakes up for another 3 or 4 hours and then goes to bed for the night. Seriously, could it get any better than that?

I just gave her a bath, which she loves until I wash her hair. She doesn’t like her head being wet, so I always save that for last so I can quickly wrap her up in a big fluffy towel when I’m done. Then, I get her dressed and play with her for a while.

She is so aware of her surroundings and she knows voices. When she hears Dan talking, she starts looking around to see where he is.

My mom says she should be in the Guinness World Book of Records because she has already rolled over by herself. I laid her down on the bed, on her tummy, and she pushed herself over onto her back with her arms. I couldn’t believe it!

Nursing is going phenomenal, considering I had no idea what I was doing just over 2 weeks ago. I did so much studying and research about pregnancy and birthing. Some how I completely forgot to study what to do with the baby after I popped her out! I’m getting the hang of it though. So much of it is surprisingly intuitive. My mom has been a big help too.

Dan and I are the only ones who have held the baby, besides the 2 midwives who helped deliver her. We have been super protective and haven’t let anyone even touch her. Yeah, everyone thinks we’re neurotic. Oh well.

Now my little girl is sleeping, so I better get going to bed…

She’s so much precious and perfect. I still can’t believe she’s mine… I rock at making cute babies.
