Growing like a weed

I cannot get over how much our sweet girl has changed in just 1 month. I wish time would slow down! She will be 2 months old on the 8th of March and I can't believe it.

We've had some pretty awesome milestones in the past few weeks...smiling, cooing, sleeping for 5 hour stretches at night. Oh, and she's even had projectile spit up twice...and by projectile, I mean it didn't even get on her. Lol. I think my jaw hit the floor when it happened the first time. I totally wasn't prepared for it.

Being able to stay at home with this sweet girl has meant everything in the world to me. There is nothing else I would rather do, and no other job more fulfilling. The sleepless nights are SO worth it!

I also still can't believe that she was once inside my belly. How does that make sense? Seriously...I don't think I'll ever comprehend that.

We have discovered that Addie absolutely LOVES bath time. She gets SO mad when we take her out of the bathtub...haha.

We love our girl!

Addie at 1 Month Old

Wow. I cannot believe that our sweet girl is already a month old. :::sigh::: It's true what they say...time really does fly by! My mom and I decided to try and take some 1 month pictures of her yesterday, and sweet girl wasn't happy. I am shocked that we were able to get just a couple of good ones. Her shirt says "1 month" on it, but Addie's hands are always curled up in front of her chest so you can't really see it. Oh well. :)

We have started putting Addie in her crib to sleep at night, which I thought would be a really big deal emotionally for me...but surprisingly, she (and I) have done really well! In fact, last night she had 2 of the longest stretches of sleep since we've had her, which was amazing! I decided I wanted to try and put her on a "schedule" of I looked into Moms on Call, which my friend Terri swears by. If you haven't heard of it, check it out. It's pretty nifty, and Addie is doing really well!

In other news, Ian and I went out on our first "date" last week...since Addie was born. We went on a double date with our bestest friends Brett and Kate to Olive Garden. Boy was it was nice to get out of the house! Thank goodness my mom is close and could watch her for us.

Sweet girl cracks me up every time she wakes up. She loves to stretch, and it's the cutest thing ever.

Anyway, I love this kid. Obviously.

Y'all have a good day now ya hear? :)
