My baby girl was one month old on Friday. It's hard to believe a month has already passed since we met our beautiful Blaire. I've never been more exhausted or worried - but that pales in comparison to the love I have for my daughter. She's the sweetest little girl and I couldn't love her more. She's already full of so much personality. It's so fun to see little glimpses of the person she is becoming. She is changing and growing bigger each day. I wish I could pause time and enjoy her at this sweet age just a little longer but I know there are only wonderful things to come.
A few things about your first month...
You LOVE your hands. You like to keep them up by your face, preferably in your mouth. Sometimes you suck on your thumb, sometimes a finger or two, and sometimes as much of your hand as you can manage to get into your mouth.
You have the most beautiful golden hair. That you were born with hair at all was surprising to us but the gorgeous golden color was even more shocking. It is stunning. Everyone who meets you comments on your beautiful hair color. I hope it never changes!
Your eyes are the prettiest blue. Your dad and I wonder whether they’ll stay blue or change. Momma thinks they’ll be green like hers.
At one month old, you are still wearing newborn sized clothes and diapers. For a girl who loves to eat, you're a bit of a skinny minnie!
You are not too impressed by your swing and bouncy seat. We hope you’ll grow to enjoy them but for now you usually prefer to be held or lay on a blankie with someone nearby.
You LOVE to eat. You're eating every 2 - 2 1/2 hours and would eat for 45 minutes at a time if I allowed you to. (The pediatrician told us to try to limit feedings to half an hour.)
Bath time is hit or miss with you but you LOVE to have your hair washed. You lay very still and are happy to let Momma wash your hair.
You are quite the little tooter! You have a gassy tummy and it cracks us up how such a tiny girl can toot so loudly. You also make the cutest pooping & tooting faces. (Thank goodness you can't read yet. Mom's already embarrassing you on the internet.)
You are an impatient little one! Once you’ve decided you’re hungry, you let us know by crying with urgency. We’ve learned to move quickly to avoid meltdowns.
You made your first trip to the mall with Mom and Grandma and your first Target trip with Mom. I'm sure there are many more trips like that in our future.
We love you to the moon and back little girl!
For Grandma, a few more pictures and outtakes from your one month photo sesh:
*I planned to have this post up on Friday but a flat tire turned our 2 hour trip from Grandma's house into a 5 hour trip. Blaire was a trooper through the whole ordeal but I didn't think she was up to a photo shoot after our long day.
