Emma - 1 Month


Baby Girl I cannot believe that you are 1 Month!
I feel like you have already grown so much, I want to cry.

I look at you and can't believe that I made you.
For 9 Months YOU were in my belly! Being pregnant for the first time is weird.
I knew that I obviously had a baby in my belly, but I could't imagine what it would be like when you were finally here, because even though I knew how pregnancy worked, I had never experienced it myself, so to finally get to meet the life that was growing inside me is indescribable.

It's so crazy to think that I was carrying you around, growing as you were growing, feeling all your movements, from kicks and punches to hiccups, and it's so funny to see how you move the same way out of my belly as you did when you were in there.
At every ultrasound you had your hands on your face, and out here you still always have your hands on your face, or you like when we cover your face with our hands when we put you to sleep.

I have only known you for a month, but from the moment I saw you you stole my entire heart.
I cannot imagine my life without you and I would do anything in the world for you.

I love you so much!
- Mommy

Weight: 9 lbs
Height: 21 in.
Eye Color: Blue!!! I hope they stay!
Hair Color: Dark Brown
Diaper Size: At the hospital you were wearing Size 1 since that's all they had, they just folded the front over, but I had some Newborn sized diapers at home to use, and they fit you better, so you have been wearing Newborn.
Clothes Size: Newborn & 0-3 Months if they're smaller.
Sleep: You have your nights.. Sometimes you sleep about 2 hours before you wake up during the night, some nights you sleep around 4-5 hours.
Eating: Every 2-3 hours during the day. If you are napping, now I let you sleep a little longer before I wake you up to eat. During the night sometimes you sleep for about 4-5 hours, but only SOMETIMES, which is almost never haha. And, sometimes you want a snack, and that's ok, mommy is happy to feed you. You love Mommy's Milk, that's all you eat. We give you breast milk in a bottle sometimes to get you used to it.
Likes: Mommy's Milk, looking at lights, being outside. You love to be held and you like your pacifier, but you get really mad when it falls out of your mouth which is allll the time so we have to constantly keep putting it back in your mouth. You love when Mommy and Vovó sing to you, you calm down and pay attention. You like to sleep cuddled up with Mommy. You like when we rock you as your belly touches ours with our hand on your face.
Dislikes: Getting out of the bath, you get cold. Sometimes you get really mad when we are changing your diaper.
Milestones: At just 2 days you could already hold your head up! :)
Firsts:You had your first bath and it was a little awkward since Mommy had a hard time holding you, but by the second bath you were in love! You saw rain for the first time, you got your first shot and you celebrated a birthday - daddy's. You had your first (of many more to come) photoshoot, and you were so good to "Auntie Bee" - that's what Mommy named her friend Amanda that takes pictures for you since you have 3 Amandas in your life!
Personality: You are mostly a happy baby. I wouldn't say you have a "personality" yet, you're just a newborn! :) You have a funny poop face, yup, I said it!

Emma's One Month Watercolor onesie is from Chicly Growing and can be purchased here.
It's a whole 12 Month set. I like that they're ironed on, and not stickers, so as she gets older she can't rip them out! Love it!!!

By the way, I took exactly 75 pictures, only 6 were good, the rest looked like this:
