I've got to start with the cliche that everyone says, this month has gone by much too quickly. You are growing and changing so much every day baby girl, and I am trying my best to take it all in, every cry, every smile, every second spent snuggling with you, nursing you, laughing at your cuteness. You have made your daddy and me so incredibly happy. So far, you have grown out of your newborn clothes at just 2 weeks old, mastered nursing and letting us know when you are hungry, gotten into the night time sleeping habit thankfully, and so many other things. You love baths with mommy, I soak and you join me for an average 10 to 15 minutes of snuggles and scrubs, you actually love to be in the water also, not just sitting or laying on me, fully submerged up to your shoulders, we usually do a few dunks to rinse you off. You also love naked time, for a little bit. This usually happens when changing your diaper, which you're now fully into cloth diapers and it makes daddy and I so happy to see you in your adorable cloth. You love laying on the changing table to air out a little, fully naked and enjoying your birthday suit. You also love your car seat and car rides, thank goodness! It's a little rough getting you all strapped in, you don't actually enjoy anything about that part, but once your in, tighten up, and clicked into the base in the truck, your happy as a clam. You love the sound daddy's truck makes, it lulls you to sleep almost instantly. Daddy also stumbled upon the fact that you love rock n roll, His favorite. Or more a little alternative I guess, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, that kinda rock. I also discovered your like of more up beat music, Katy Perry, Sugarland, and anything with a good beat that mommy can dance around the house to, nothing too slow. This makes mommy kinda happy and certainly has helped me loose the baby weight.
This past week you've been a bit more of a challenge, fussing quite often throughout the day. You only want to be held, which it absolutely fine with me, I love to snuggle. I love my days with you, but I am most definitely ready for a break when daddy gets home, which is something rough when you cry, I wish he could see your sweetness throughout the mornings and not just the fussy you at night.
