Our baby is one month old already! I can hardly believe it. It’s been the best month ever. I can’t imagine my life without her! We learn more about what makes her happy every day!
The other day we gave her a bottle for the first time. She did just fine. We waited until Maddie was almost a month to make sure she would still nurse just fine. And it hasn’t been a problem. We also gave her a pacifier yesterday. She has a hard time keeping it in her mouth, but when she figures it out, she seems to like it. Plus, this means we don’t have to stick our fingers in her mouth to occupy her!
I also took the Baby Bjorn for a spin around the house. I’m starting to get the hang of putting her in it by myself. It’s nice to be able to do a few things around the house with her just hanging out. I can’t wear it too long because it starts to hurt my stomach a bit, but I know I am going to love this. (Thank you to my wonderful cousin for passing it along to me!) Today, she fell asleep in it when I was cleaning up the kitchen. (Her hair looks really light in this picture.)
I’m going to take a picture of Maddie each month in her crib to see how much she changes. Plus I can’t get enough of the pattern of her crib sheet! Here is our sweet Maddie at one month old!
And here’s Chuck holding her. She was so cute and content.
Oh, yesterday Chuck’s sister watched Maddie for a couple hours so Chuck and I could go out to eat together. It was the first time we left her with someone else. I only cried a little when we left, but was able to stay away a couple hours! Thanks Paige! And HERE are a few more pictures of her at one month old!
