{monthdate} one month

My dearest little Ellie Faith,

What a journey we are on. Today marks you being one month old (at 1:03pm to be exact). They say that time flies when you are having fun and that it goes by faster as you get older. This is true but how can it be true for you?

(How did you go from this to this so quickly!?!)

I have loved every minute of being your mama...even those nights when you were wide awake!  I have so enjoyed watching you grow and become more aware of your surroundings. You are such a blessing to us!

So far we have spent time with you in the hospital after you were born, been to the doctor twice (once for you 1 week visit and once for your 1 month checkup). I have held you as you got your shots - boy did you hate those!!  We have had lots of mama + Ellie time. We have gotten pretty good at swaddling and figuring out what your cries mean. 

You have gotten so much better at tummy time and you love to play in your activity mat and be carried. 

We just love you so much!


Height: 19 1/8th"
Weight: 8 pounds
Head: 14"
Food: 3 ounces at each feeding
Diapers: at least 10 a day
Clothes: newborn size though you are starting to fill them out now
Sleeping: naps for about 4 hours anywhere between 10am and 2pm
Cries: usually when you are hungry
Loves: activity mat, mei tai carrier, skin to skin, eating, diaper changes, your car seat, and being swaddled
Hates: being hungry, wet diapers, baths, and shots

Mamas proudest moment: changing your poopy diaper and flinging some of the poop on the wall - yuck. 

Daddy's proudest moment: spilling your formula all over the kitchen your second night home!

Things we are looking forward to is you being more social and holding your head up!  Also we can't wait for our adoption to be finalized so you can legally be ours!!

We love you Ellie Faith!
