My Sweet Little Girl,
You are 1 month old! Well technically you turned 1 month a few days ago, but this whole new Mommy thing has already taught me that my life no longer revolves around me and when I want to do things, so I haven't blogged in a while. In fact I can already see it is going to be very difficult to keep up this blog, but I will try my best. Last night was the most exciting thing you have done this month. You slept in your infant sleeper for 3 whole hours WITHOUT being held AND Mommy and Daddy were able to sleep in their bed! That is BIG news for this sleep deprived Mama. Sweet girl you have completely transformed my world for the better. You make my life so completely wonderful. You were born with the most beautiful strawberry blonde hair. You were lifting your head at 1 day old, and you simply get stronger and stronger everyday. God is so good! You have the longest most gorgeous eyelashes just like your Daddy. Finally long lashes to put mascara on!! Speaking of your Daddy my heart still melts when he holds you and kisses you and talks to you in sweet little whispers. He already bought you your first dress yesterday. He has such great taste. You will be the most beautiful baby at the Country Club Christmas Eve Brunch next week. I love staring into your eyes when you are nursing. You are a very good eater. You absolutely love to be swaddled and you hate to be cold, so you dislike changing of clothes and diapers. You did not like bath time at first, but now you do. I just love the way you smell after bath time. We are still working on getting you on a good routine. It has been a little difficult, but we are not giving up. Your first Christmas is in 5 days and we are all so excited to celebrate with you. I am really looking forward to next year when you will be 13 months and moving all around the place. But for now I want to enjoy these special moments I get to have with you while you are still so tiny. I am not sure how much you weigh because we have not been to the doctor in almost 3 weeks, but at that appointment you were 8lbs. 6oz. I know you have grown, but I can't tell if you are more or less then 10lbs. Mary Katherine Mommy and Daddy love you so much!! We are so blessed that God chose us to be your parents. You are surrounded by so many loving family members, too. Your Gigi has already been down here twice to see you and is planning another visit for next month. You truly are my sunshine. I thank God for you everyday! I love you so very much!
