1 month check up

Dear Elodie,

Yesterday you had your 1 month check up and you've come a LONG way! When you were born you weighed only 5 pounds 7 ounces but now, 5 weeks later you're a whopping 9.08 pounds!! YAY!! What's funny is that Maddie weighed 9 pounds even when she was born and she was born 2 weeks late and you were born 3 weeks early. Technically you two would have weighed the exact same amount had you both been born 2 weeks late.

I can't believe how quickly these last 5 (almost 6!) weeks have gone by. Your sister is so incredibly in love with you. Any chance that she gets to be near you she gives you kisses and holds your hand, subsequently that's also how you acquired your first cold last week. I've heard that sisters share everything and I assume that this is the beginning of a lifetime of sharing (for better or worse) for you both.

You're starting to smile all the time lately too, even at 3:00 in the morning...which I would prefer to be sleeping but if I can't sleep then smiles from my sweet Elodie Faye is the next best thing. I've also discovered that you pretty much hate tummy time but absolutely love being outside or in the bouncer.  Wherever you're fussy I can just open the patio door and step outside with you and almost instantly you become quite and serene. I wonder if this is a precursor to what your interests will be as you become older.

You at exactly one month old, sleeping peacefully on my chest

I want to freeze time right now so I can enjoy every precious second of your babyhood but I can't wait to see more of your personality flourish.
