One Month

Sarah turned one month on Monday, March 11.  I looked at her periodically throughout the day, wondering where the last 4 weeks went and marveling at how quickly and easily she has become a part of our family.  Here are a few facts about her first month of life

-She is so expressive already and has huge eyes that take in everything
-She LOVES to be held and snuggled, which means the holder (mostly Mommy, of course) has a very hard time getting anything done unless she's sleeping
-Speaking of sleep, the place she sleeps the best is in her car seat.  She starts out at night just in her playpen, but by the end of the night she is sleeping peacefully in her car seat so that Mommy and Daddy can get some sleep too
-She is a very calm baby, but she is also very good at letting us know she needs or wants something
-She is adored by her big brother and sister.  They are constantly touching her, talking to her, and showing her things
-She is a good mix of both sides of the family.  She has a TON of dark hair, which comes from my side, but her face looks a lot like Bill's side.
-She is patient with her mother who is trying to remember how to handle a newborn

We all love her so much already, and are so glad she is ours

And here's a short and sweet little video that Will took

Sarah looks so aware and is the fortunate receiver of much love from her siblings, not to mention her parents . . . . and GREAT GRANDPARENTS! Thanks for posting. We love to keep up with this sweet baby's progress in life.
