Emilia is 1 month

Our baby girl is 1 month old, wowza. It was the fastest month of our lives I tell you. Life has been a beautiful blur since baby Emilia joined our family. She is such an nice baby and I am so loving this newborn phase. It has been hard to chill and spend quality time with her since we have to tend to 3 rambunctious kids but we definitely made the most of our first month. I am savoring every minute of this phase and I am so in love with this sweet girl of mine. I am not the only one, the boys are loving on her daily.

I took a few pictures of her to celebrate her 1 month and she was totally cooperating. She is not quite hamming it up for the camera yet but I just love taking pictures of her. I mean look at that sweet face :)
Our baby is such a great nurser just like her brothers before her and she is growing on target. She was a delicious 9lbs 7oz and 22in at her one month appointment almost 3lbs heavier than she was at birth. Loving that she is growing so well.
Her head also grew and now some of her bows are finally fitting on her head. Seriously mommy, am I going to wear big pink bows for the rest of my life :). No not the rest of your life baby girl just until it really sinks in mommy's head that you are hers to keep. I know, I am crazy :)
Can you get over her cheeks? I think not. What about those beautiful brown eyes, I know I can't. It's a good think she is adorable because this girl doesn't understand what sleep means. We have not had more than 2.5 hours of sleep at one time since she was born. I am a total zombie these days, a really happy zombie :)
I love this sweet baby girl so much and I am so happy that she is growing on target. We start tummy time this week and I know she will not be happy about that but we'll encourage her. Gotta strengthen those neck muscles
I set her free from mittens a few days ago and she is now discovering her fingers. I love these sweet and tiny baby fingers.
We went on our first outing that was not a trip to the doctor a few days ago. Baby girl did really well, she slept most of the time. I love carrying my baby really close, such a great feeling and the babe clearly loves it too
I now have both babies with me all day and we are doing really well. Bean is such an easy kid which makes taking both of them out a total breeze. I carried Emilia in the baby bjorn and put Bean in the stroller. It was so weird not having a double stroller for outings :)
Bean is so adorable I couldn't help snapping multiple pictures of him while we were out
Bean is totally loving his job as big brother. He was the slowest to warm up to baby Emilia but now he is totally smitten with her. Every time she cries he tells me to pick her up so this time I told him to hold her. He was so proud. Don't mind Emilia's crying face, she is a total cry baby.
I take every chance I get to spend some quality time with my baby. That usually means that I lay her close to me when Bean is taking a nap and just enjoy watching her sleep. Ahhhh, those sweet lips. I am one tired but happy mama, pure happiness right here
It's been such an amazing first month with my 1st and only daughter. I am so in love with the baby phase, the cuddles, the kisses, the food comas, the milk smell, the cheeks. I love it all and I am trying to soak every minute of it. I thank God everyday for this new blessing that joined our family a month ago and changed our family forever for the better. Happy 1 month, we love you sweet Emilia, to the moon and back.
