we have survived!

we have made it through the first month! she turned one month old yesterday. we wondered if we would make it though. other parents told us it would get better, and it has. it is very hard bringing a newborn home, a lot harder then we thought. but look at that face, doesn't it just melt your heart. it melts my heart when i see an actual tear fall from those eyes. i just want to make everything better for her. we have learned so much in this first month. she has slept almost 8 hours through the night. her neck is so strong. she holds it up by herself a lot. she is getting better at telling us what she wants, or we have gotten better at knowing what she wants. we hear that the six week mark is the holy grail. she will get pretty fussy then, and after that we get social smiles, and a little better routine. we go to the beach after that at about 7 weeks so for the sake of everyone else in the house, we hope she is not real fussy. we love this baby so much. our lives have been completely rocked by her, but we would not change a thing.

Yes- 6 weeks. THings change after 6 weeks. For us, we breathed after 2 months (the nursing thing kinda pushed things on). Life will settle, I promise.

I see a lot of Worth in that little face!!! SO beautiful.
