One Month with Baby #2

Wow, I can't believe that we have already pasted the one month mark. And what a month it has been, I think that the biggest reason we made it through so well is because your Nana was here to help.

We love you so much already, it is just amazing that even though you are so tiny, you take up so much of our heart and life. We love watching you explore the world as you gaze all around and take it all in. Our favorite game to play with you is "copy cat. You love to try and copy all the expressions on your Father's face when he holds you, sometimes you will even copy his head movements. My favorite thing to do is to stick my tongue out at you and watch you try and do the same back at me.

In this first month you have already given us some very sweet little smiles and cute little half smiles.Now it may just be gas but they are still the sweetest thing I have ever seen.

You are very good at letting us know when you are in need of something and you do so very loudly until we have finally figured out what you wanted and then you quickly become happy again.

I don't want to jinx anything but you are giving me hints that you might become a very good sleeper, as you are starting to have more and more good nights. Which at this point means sleeping closer to 3 hours in between feeds. And actually go back to sleep between feeds and not needing to be held for those 3 hours.  Once you even slept for close to 7 hours one night!!! I couldn't believe it and thought something must be wrong but no, you were fine just really sleepy that night. I hope that you give me more of those nights. Although often when you give me a good night then the next few nights are rough. It seems like one step forth, two steps back kind of thing. Oh well, you are only a month so really I'm not expecting to get a lot of sleep but I can hope!

You are also learning to be patience with your sister as she loves to come and gives you "love taps" that are often a little to hard then they should be. I'm so glad that you two have each other and I hope that you two will grow close and become the best of sisters. It will be fun to watch you two grow up together.

We are so happy to have you as a part of our family, and look forward to each day with you and getting to watch you continue to learn and grow.
