Hannah- One Month Old



It's hard to believe that my little girl is a month old already, how time flies when your days are filled with feedings and diaper changes. I am still learning and some days are better then others but I know that eventually I will get the hang of things and figure out what her cries mean and how to keep her happy. I am not sure how much she weighs now, I'm thinking around 9 pounds because I weighed myself and then weighed myself holding her and it was a 9 pound difference. I do know that she has outgrown some of her newborn size onesies, she can only fit in a few still and she is very close to being out of the newborn size diapers, I could probably put her in the size one now but I want to use up the newborn sizes that I have. I am still trying to get her to like taking a bottle, but that is becoming a long process, sometimes she likes the bottle other times she wants nothing to do with it.
I can't wait to see what the next month will bring, I'm sure she will grow more and become oh so cuter.

My First Mother's Day



I had a wonderful first Mother's Day spent with family and my sweet little one. Tom made me and my mom and everyone a wonderful dinner with ribs, burgers and hot dogs. It was delicious. Oh and I also had my first glass of wine in over 9 months!! Yummy Sangria!!!
I hope that all of the Mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Sleepy Baby




I couldn't ask for a better baby, all she does is eat, sleep, and poop. I think she feels bad for making me uncomfortable during pregnancy, so she decided to come early and give me a birth without any painful labor and be the best baby. But seriously she will sleep until she is ready to eat and then after she eats she sleeps again. It is soo cute though when she is awake and looks around and makes funny faces, plus she will fan her hands out and just wave them around. I have had a few diaper accidents but nothing too scary. I think its all just trial and error and learning when its ok to try to change her.

I'm trying to get some better pictures of her but mostly they are of her sleeping cause that's what she does 90% of the time.

I am doing good and don't really feel like I had a baby. Plus I have lost a good 25 pounds of the 40 that I gained during pregnancy so I feel good, no more swollen feet!!!
This is such a surreal experience and I am truly blessed. I feel so much better then I did a few weeks ago and I can't still believe that she is finally here.
Oh and the whole you forget about all the pain when they arrive is true. I feel now like I could definitely have more children and I don't even remember really what it felt like being pregnant, even as weird as that is cause its only been less than a week.
She is definitely worth everything and more!!
