One Month

one month 10

Dear Lucy,
I can’t believe you’re a month old. It seems like just yesterday we were meeting you and holding you for the first time. This month has been an interesting one for us as we get to know you and learn your various mannerisms. You always keep us laughing with your numerous expressions. My favorite is when you grip both sides of your face while you’re eating as if you’re thinking, oh my gosh, this formula is SO GOOD!

You’ve had a busy first month. You celebrated your first Thanksgiving and first Hanukkah, and went to pick out your first Christmas tree, and you slept through all of it! Your first Christmas is coming up, and I’m sure you’ll sleep through that too. That’s OK. We still are so excited to be sharing everything with you. One thing you didn’t sleep through was your first trip to see Santa. Everyone has been amazed by how alert you were. I think you had fun! šŸ™‚

I’ve really seen changes in you in the last month. You’re much more alert now, though you do get in several good naps during the day, and when you look at us I think you might be starting to recognize who we are. You have started trying to lift your head, especially when we’re holding you, and you love your hands! You constantly have your hands on your face or in your mouth. I’ve even caught you sucking your thumb!

You really are a good baby. Sure, you have your fussy moments, but they’re few and far between when compared to other babies we know. They mainly happen when you need your diaper changed, you’re hungry or you’re tired of the HUNDREDS of pictures we’ve taken of you or I try to put blocks on you. šŸ™‚

You’re a great sleeper, and you only get up once a night, which thrills us. In fact, your daddy and I have said we may not have another child because there’s no way we’ll have another one that’s as great as you are. And, do you know what your favorite thing is? Napping with Daddy. It’s the cutest thing in the world. You definitely are a daddy’s girl!

We love you, Smudgers, and we can’t wait to see what the next month has in store for you!
