Grace Elizabeth - 1 month

On Sunday, our sweet baby girl made 1 month old already!! Yes, I am posting her 1 month update before posting her birth story. But hey, give me a break, I have a baby now and her birth story is a long one... or at least I'm making it long because I want to remember each and every detail. It will be up soon though.

Weight/Height: 11 lbs, 22 inches long [95th percentile for weight, 90th for height]

Likes: diaper changes, being sang to, Christian music, riding in the car (falls asleep instantly), being rocked, eating (I call her Piglet), looking around, her pacifier (mama calls it a nu-nu, daddy calls it pappy),laying on her changing pad (no idea why but she smiles a ton when I put her on it!)

Dislikes: getting put into her car seat, dirty diapers, hiccups

Wears: 0-3 months (I squeezed her into newborn for 2 weeks)

First Outing: Panera Bread and Target

First Intentional Smile: January 27th


Farts like daddy... Seriously, she farts like a man. She's often called Tooter.

Punches her arms when she's mad 

Makes the funniest faces in her sleep. 


What Mama has learned: Things no longer go my way or as I schedule them. I no longer eat when I'm hungry or pee when I have to. My baby girl is always put first and I'm second. I've learned that being a mama and specifically breast feeding is the most selfless thing you can do. When you become a mom, you will always put your child before you no matter what. And I wouldn't change it for the world. This month has been one of the toughest, yet the most rewarding. I love being her mama!

    Solar panel efficiency is affected by several factors like temperature and light intensity. Naturally, if the amount of sunlight reaching the solar cells were limited by dirt or leaf, the amount of electricity produced would not be at its ideal level.


  2. Love this update :) and Amen to your thoughts on being a mama!

  3. Oh she is just beautiful, Danielle! Congratulations!
