one month

Dear Emma,

It is so hard to believe you are already one month old. So many activities were crammed into this month and you didn't blink an eye. Probably because you were sleeping most of the time. So many people came to visit you. You are so loved and not just by your mommy, daddy, and big brother.

Speaking of your big brother, every time I try to get a picture of you, mason gets right in your spot. It's the only time he wants his picture taken.

You've rocked his world just a little bit. It's been fun (and a little trying) to watch him figure out this new dynamic you brought to our lives. He adores you though and is always checking on you and bringing you things. Except when I'm holding you and he wants to play. Then he keeps repeating "baby...crib...nap...baby...crib...nap."

At one month, you:

~are heading towards 9 pounds (8 lbs 13 oz at your last appointment)
~have a quiet cry, for the most part
~have rolled over once from your tummy to your back
~sleep, a lot ~have the chubbiest legs and cheeks, which are adorable
~wake up twice a night (which wasn't true for the first two weeks....it was much more often)
~have the cutest little lips
~like going on walks
~are happiest when you're being held
~are enjoying baths a little more
~get lots of kisses from mason

Here are a few pics from a little photo session with my friend, hillary:

Emma, you are the sweetest little girl. We feel so blessed. We love you!
