One month today!
You are now an entire month old. Wow time sure is flying, you look almost double the size you were when I first held you in my arms. You have begun to put on a layer of little baby fat giving you sweet chubby little cheeks and little rolls on your arms and legs. You are more alert as of late, you look at your surroundings and really seem to enjoy interacting with Mommy and Daddy. When I wake up in the mornings and look down at you I am greeted with little gummy smiles and you gurgle and coo at me. Your little clothes fit you nicely now and you have officially outgrown a few of your newborn onesies (which used to be the only things that fit you properly). You still love to snuggle all the time and prefer to be in someones arms rather than in your swing or left in your bassinets. You love going for walks in your stroller and especially love being carried about in your snugli under the cover of a receiving blanket or my poncho.
I'm so amazed at how big your getting the only thing I can do is try to capture as many moments on camera to try to save these sweet baby moments forever. I am taking the advice of the elderly people I meet with grown children and grandchildren of their own, I am cuddling you, kissing you and enjoying every single moment I can. You don't sit in a crib "to cry it out" you are held and loved and cherished as often as possible because I know there will be a day in the not so distant future where I miss these moments indescribably. I sniff that sweet baby smell on the top of your little head like a junkie snorting coke because that too will be nothing but a memory in a few short years. I do not want to look back and regret not spending enough time with you and enjoying these years. You will not always get the things you want in life, but you my dear girl will never hurt for love and attention.
