Blue, you turned one month old on February 6th! We are learning to be a family of 5 and getting to know each other! You came home on Wednesday January 8th. We picked Alabama up from school on the way home and she was so surprised and excited! Granny and Aunt Judy drove out to see you when we got home. It felt so great to be home all together!
You love to nurse and are very good at it. A little too good at it, because you want to eat every 2 hours a lot of the time! You have had some very bad gas pains, though, which makes it uncomfortable for us both. :( I wish I could make it not hurt you, but the gas drops/gripe water only do so much. I've cut out caffeine, dairy, beans, spicy foods, salads but it hasn't seemed to make much difference. (We will especially remember when Daddy had to go to Wal-Mart at 3 in the morning to get gas drops for you!) When you're not hurting, you are a very sweet baby and so so cute! A lot of times, you have a worried look on your face with your wrinkled eyebrows, but when you are relaxed, your face is full and so cute!
You didn't like your first bath one little bit. You even woke Pate up and he was so worried about you. He came in our room for a while to make sure you were okay and he helped brush your hair. :)
You're going to be great friends! :) You have went to visit Granny. You have had your first snow, but we didn't go out in it, just stayed nice and warm inside! :) Your brother and sister love you to pieces, literally! ha! They are all over you and want to hold you all the time.
I've been very worried about pictures this month and trying to get some good ones of you as a newborn. It has been a challenge because you are a light sleeper so those cute sleeping pictures are out of the question. (P and A wouldn't do this either.)
You look so much like Alabama and Pate but also so much like your own little self. Love this comparison of you all wearing the same little sleeper. :)
