One Month Old

12 Feb

Dear Olivia,

One month ago today, you came into the world…

Already you have grown so much! You spend more and more time awake every day, and every minute Daddy and I fall more and more in love with you. You are smiling and expressing your big personality in so many ways (Papa calls you “Big Little” because your personality is so BIG but you started out so LITTLE!).

We are guessing you are over 7 pounds by now, so about the size you would have been if you would have made it until your due date. You definitely have 2 chins now, and maybe even a third one is on the way?

Your big eyes are beautiful and blue (just like Mama – we are wondering if they will stay?)

You do so many things that are so adorable, including…

  • eating your hands (you LOVE this!!! I can’t wait until you discover your feet…)
  • making faces, especially when you are waking up
  • trying to milk Papa 🙂

Every day you become bigger and more fun. You are quite the little snuggler and I am treasuring every moment we have together. The only time you really get fussy is when you are hungry (sometimes every hour!), and you are already smiling and making contented sighs – such a happy, good baby. I took you to Panera last week with some friends who are expecting babies SOON, and you were so well-behaved – you slept most of the time, and then woke up a little unhappy, so I held you and everything was great.

I enjoy our time together so much and I am so grateful to have a little time off work to spend with you. I can barely remember what life was like before you came into our lives – it is so much more now! It is so true…

“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.”

So much love surrounds you already, and I wish that you know God and His love for you more than anything else. We are so blessed to have you in our lives, Olivia.
