On October 8th, Everly turned one month old! If every month goes by that quickly, we are in trouble; she'll be one year old in the blink of an eye! In all fairness, she did spend the first 9 days in the hospital, so we really only got to have her home for 3 weeks. Maybe that's why it seemed to go so quickly. Let's hope that's it.
I keeping with tradition, here are Everly's one month pictures. And just for fun, here is a picture of Krew from when he turned one month.
There are some similarities, but Everly definitely has her own look. And Krew was already a chunk!
At one month, Everly is such an easy baby! She has been sleeping a 5-6 hour stretch most nights. She usually only cries when she is hungry or has to burp. She burps a lot. She nurses so well, and has already gained more than two pounds since birth.
She has just started to give a few smiles, but they are so hard to catch on camera. Mostly she smiles at me first thing in the morning. I think she was sent to me for a reason, because I generally do not smile in the morning, but seeing her cute, open mouth smile in the morning, makes me happy. Even if I'm not a morning person.
I'm loving having a tiny girl to dress up with skirts, and pink, and ruffles, and headbands, and bows. But more than that, I love thinking about what it's going to be like to have a daughter to raise-to teach about the joys of womanhood and motherhood, to cook with and craft with, to go shopping with, and do all sorts of fun, girly things with. I already feel like our connection is a little bit different than my connection with my sons. I'm so lucky to be her mom!
These two are going to be so much fun to watch growing up. Krew just loves his baby sister!
