Happy 1 month to my baby girl!
I cannot believe a month ago, I was having the worst contractions ever. I cannot believe we were actually admitted to the hospital to have a baby. To have you. To have our baby girl we have waited so long for. I cannot believe you are actually ours to bring home and have forever :) It is seriously the best feeling ever!
7.9- we gave you soy formula in bottle at night to see if you would sleep and not be fussy. It worked, but I wasn't happy because I didn't want to give you anything other than breast milk. And once I read what is in forumla I was even more upset... so much crappy ingredients. So, I tried to give you breast milk much more often, just to ease my mind.
7.10- you had your first breast milk bottle feeding
7.10- daddy got to feed you breast milk from the bottle for the first time
7.10- finally pooped at home....on mommy. you decided you had to go to the bathroom while I was holding you sans diaper, so.... mommy got pooped on. It was disgusting!! Yes, I screamed! It was the meconium poop, which I feel like is worse than just breastfed poop. But in the end I was happy because it had been several days since you went #2.
7.10- Slept in crib for a nap
7.12- started smiling a lot and has become a happy baby while she is awake.
7.16- I was changing your clothes and poof...off pops that umbilical cord stump
7.17- we went out on our first date for our anniversary for a couple hours while gramma watched you
7.18- drove to paso and met great grandparents (momma's grandparents)
7.19- drove to fresno to meet daddy's side
7.23- rolled from left side to right side while in your crib
8.1- you started recognizing momma and daddy. you follow us with your eyes.
8.6- grocery shopping with momma alone; this was not nearly as bad as I had expected
You make our world a brighter place. You have stolen the hearts of everyone around, and let's be real...you are totally everyones favorite. I am excited to see what this next month will bring us, besides more sleep.
We love you so so much!!!
