1 monthwhat a month! Our baby girl is growing right before our eyes. She is such a Joy and we are all completely in love with her and it is now hard to imagine what life was like before she arrived!

Here are a few stats and things I want to remember:
*we weighed her on her granddad's scale and she now weighs 9 1/2 lbs
*she LOVES to eat- still nursing pretty frequently during the day (every 2 1/2 -3 hrs) but she actually gave me a 4 1/2 hr stretch last night-mommy loved that!
* she is an early riser- she does not want to go back to sleep after her 4 or 5 am feeding- YIKES!
* definitely has alert times now- I love to see her look around checking out her surroundings
*still waiting on those first "real" smiles but I am expecting them anytime now!
* I love how she can be fussy and I can now pick her up in my arms and she will look at me and get extremely content- she definitely loves to be held!!
*still has a very fussy time in the late evenings ( say a prayer for us around 8:30-11 pm at night!)

I love these sweet brother and sister moments!
Sweet sleeping baby girl

Tallon loves to include Tess in whatever we are doing-
whether reading a book, singing or simply playing!
Here he is singing to her

My Goodness, I want to grab that beautiful CHUNKY baby off of that changing table and squeeze her!!! She is so, so precious and I loved every part of this post. I can't believe she is already a month old!

We missed y'all today on the shopping trip!

Congratulations Becca! I am so excited for you and love reading the updates! We will definately be lifting up those evening times and all the transitions from a family of 3 to a family of 4.

9.5 lbs!!! She's huge! Can't believe how quickly she's growing. Give both kiddos big hugs from Uncle Wobert and Aunt Tiff. Love y'all!

Aww, what a sweet girl! I love the letters you put up in her room! I can't believe she is already a month old! Thinking of you and praying for you during "fussy time"!
