Jolie’s one-month birthday was a week ago, and I still can’t BELIEVE I’ve been a mommy for a whole month.
Where does the time go?!
When J was born, she weighed 6 pounds, 11 ounces. She was 19.5 inches long.
Now she’s 9 pounds, 7 ounces and 20.75 inches long.
(Why don’t they say ___ inches tall? I guess because babies can’t stand up?)
Before leaving the hospital, we dressed her in her “going home” outfit, which was absolutely huge on her. She SWAM in it:
After just a month, she can hold her head up pretty well, follow us with her eyes, make faces at us (okay maybe she’s just farting), and roll onto her side.
Maybe this is one of those biased-mommy things, but I’m SO impressed with her.
To celebrate her first four weeks of life, here are my four favorite things about being a mommy:
- Morning snuggles
- Holding her against my chest
- Bath time!
- The little sounds she makes when she’s sleeping
What are your favorite things about parenthood? Or, what do you look forward to most about being a mommy/daddy?
