1 month

Dear Ava,

Today you are 1 month old. I can't believe it's already been a month. All those months I waited, not always patiently for you to arrive and now you've been here for a month already. It really did fly by and has been pretty wonderful.

This month, you rolled over (once, we're still trying to get the hang of it), surprising your doctor and your parents. You've also started to find your voice. Instead of just crying, you are oohing and ahhing and sometimes making cute little monkey noises.

I hope I'm not jinxing myself by saying this but you are a very good sleeper. You usually go to sleep between 9 and 10 pm, sleep until 12 or 1 (or 2 if we're really lucky), up again to eat, back to sleep until 4 or 5, up to snack again and then back down until 8 am. If you're really fussy at night, Daddy has been good about getting up with you and giving you a bottle so that I can sleep.

You've also met 2 of your 3 sets of grandparents and lots of your parents friends this month. Let me tell you, once you are in their arms, no one wants to put you down! In the next few months, you will be meeting your great-grandmother and your other grandparents. I'm sure they will love you as much as everyone else who has met you.

We're so happy you're here, Peanut. It's been a great month.

I love you.

Awwh, I love these letters to babies :] It's something I'll definitely doing once my baby girl gets here! I just came across your blog (love the name of it; "I'm just sayin'..." is a regular phrase in our household). Congratulations on your amazing new roly-poly baby!

Congratulations on getting through month one. I think the first two are among the longest of their lives: thrilling, frightening, and altogether amazingly life altering. Later it will seem such a blur, that you'll be glad you noted it here. She is just beautiful. I can't believe it was a year ago I was celebrating the same in my daughter's life. I'm so pysched to see my blog linked on yours -- how flattering! Also, I love your blog background, and have you to thank for my own blog's new look. I'd been looking for a way to pretty it up. Thanks!
