To my darling Plum...at one month.
You have gained two pounds and three ounces! You are in the 80-90th percentile for both height and weight.
Your eyes are still blue. Everyone is wondering if they will remain blue or if they will turn brown.
You love to cuddle right into my neck and you wrap your arm around my neck when I hold you upright. I love this. You also will try to suck on my chin in this position.
You also pinch my arm when I hold you on your tummy.
You try so very hard to speak when I talk to you. You have only said, "oh" a couple of times. I know you have so much more to say.
When you drift off to sleep, you smile so big...and sometimes you even giggle. I wonder what you are dreaming.
The first place you ate at when you were just one week old was M. Henry in Andersonville. The hostess saw I was carrying a baby in my sling and luckily, we got to be seated fairly quickly. The perks of motherhood! Nobody likes a crying baby...
We went to the beach when you were just two weeks old. I can't tell you how peaceful it was listening to music and holding you while I watched your dad and sister play by the water. Your sister had been asking to go to the beach for weeks...I'm so happy we went that day. It was a perfect day.
You are really very gassy. I feel like you're not an unusually fussy baby, but boy, do you toot like a sailor...or someone who has eaten a lot of beans.
You sleep fairly well...only waking once or twice in the night. You will typically nap when your sister naps, so if I time it right, I can get about an hour of ME time. Haha! ME time...that doesn't exist when you're a parent. I can't even take a poop in peace.
Mama gave you your first bath! You kind of hated it the first time...maybe because I forgot how to bathe an infant? But you seemed like you were going to fall asleep the second time around. (Note: the photos above are from the second bath.)
