1 month old

Ella Jae,

What a month it has been! You were born on a Saturday and we brought you home on a Sunday. Our first month together has been nothing short of perfect! You have brought so much joy into our lives and we love you more than we could have ever imagined. You were the most anticipated little girl and now you are the most loved and adored little girl. We are in awe of beauty. You are just plum perfect, from the tip top of your head to the bottom of little feetsies! Each time I look at you, I am so overwhelmed with emotion. I cannot believe that you are finally here and you are ours. Daddy and I pray for your health and safety each night. You already have your Daddy wrapped around your little fingers, all of your fingers actually! He comes in from work and if you are asleep, he will sit and stare at you! We love you so much and are so thankful for you! You are our sweet sweet blessing!

What you are up to:

-You were born with highligths, a tan and mohawk.

-You squeak like a little mouse for no reason at all.

-You yawn while you sleep.

-You like to sleep in your Boppy pillow (and on your belly).

-You drink breastmilk from a bottle for over a week but now you drink formula.

-You sleep with your hands by your face.

-You make tons of faces while you are awake and asleep.

-You make direct eye contact with your Mommy and Daddy.

-You know your Mommy and Daddy's voice. Sometimes your Daddy's big voice startles you.

-You found the toys at the top your swing.

-You like to held over the shoulder the best and it cures your cry everytime.

-You don't like when your clothes are changed. You squirm and cry a little. You typically don't mind when your diaper is changed.

-You sleep A LOT and don't like to be woken up.

-You eat every 3 to 4 hrs. And usually 2 1/2 hrs once a day.

-You squirm during feedings when you need to burp. You are an excellent burper!

-You are very strong! You have been holding your head up very well since you were 2 days old and you scoot and squirm all over the place with your little strong legs.

-You love music! We listen to music often and I sing to you. We sing: 'He's got the whole world in his hands,' 'This little light of mine,' Jesus loves me,' 'I'm a little teapot,' and I sing 'I love you' to the tune of 'Happy birthday!'

-You go to sleep on your own.

-You really like movement. You loved being bounced, rocked, and when I walk with you.

-You weigh 7lbs 12 oz and are 20.5 inches long.

-You are a very good and happy baby!
