One month.

Somehow it has already been a month since you joined us in this world bright and early at 1:14 on a Saturday morning.  How that is even possible.. I will never know.

A few of your first month quirks...

.You blew out of newborn size diapers, quite literally.  So size 1 it is.

.Your newborn sleepers no longer fit.  You are just too long.  Of course this was about a week and a half after I added about 5 more sleepers to your rotation.  Smooth move mom.

.You still fit in some of your bigger newborn outfits, but for the most part you've started wearing 0-3 month clothing.

.You like to swing, bounce, have your butt patted.  If the car stops moving with you in it, you aren't a happy camper.  You also like to rock.

.You typically only cry if you are hungry, or your diaper is dirty.  You HATE wet diapers.  You don't have time for that.

.You fight sleep like a champ.  Especially between the hours of midnight and 3 am.  It's your witching hours.  I'm not sure why.  Dad hates it.  Especially cause you bring out this shrill shrieking scream thing.

.You are 100% a daddy's girl, as I expected you would be.  When he holds you.. you latch onto his face with your eyes and just stare.  You never grow tired of him.  Ever.  And somehow he can always calm you down.  (Unless it is during the witching hours.)

.You have met your grandparents on both side of the family.  Your great-grandparents on Daddy's side.  Your Aunt Courtney, Uncle Daylen and Stella.  Plus countless local friends.

.You virtually met your Aunt Erin.

.You have developed to die for arm and leg rolls.  Maybe cause you like to eat every two hours, almost on the dot.  I can keep track of time based on your belly.  (Your grandpa Ritter used to say the same thing about momma's belly... you can always tell what time of day it is based on if mommy is hungry or not.)

.You love to be held.  Hate to be put down.

.You haven't had much of a reaction to your brother yet.  His kisses make you scrunch your face up.  No tears.  As for him, he's not a huge fan of your crying.  Not that any of the rest of us are.  But he leaves the room if he can.

.You get the hiccups at least once a day, just like you did when momma was pregnant with you.

.You have been to the beach already.  Among countless other places you most certainly will not remember.

One month already... time is just flying.  I always thought that was so cliche.  But seriously... it's insane.  Slow down baby girl.  I know I am.  I'm going to spend each day rocking you, staring at your face, loving and remembering every single minute of our time together while you grow up.  Always.
