One Month Old!!

(By Aubree)

Our baby is 1 month old. Can you believe it? She is such a blessing in our lives and we are enjoying parenthood so much. She is now making eye contact and will study your face. She even reacts to us when we talk to her by raising her eyebrows and moving her mouth. She has been sick for the last week, so she hasn't been sleeping as well as usual, but she will sleep for about 3 or 4 hours at a time, which I feel isn't too bad. She is such a strong baby too. We have pictures of her holding herself up and looking around. Her arms and legs are so strong that it makes dressing and undressing her hard, and she hates getting dressed so it's quite a fight sometimes.



She hates taking baths and this proves it! She is actually getting a little better at it though.


She likes holding daddy's hands. She has really long fingers, but they look tiny compared to his.


These are the pictures of her holding herself up. I was just holding her in the chair and Jeff and I were just talking and all of the sudden I was like "Jeff look at your daughter!" and he grabbed the camera. She was like that for a long time too!

These are my sister Andrea's twins, yes they're twins. Cambry weighed over a pound more than Cloe. The week before Clara was born Cloe weighed 8 lbs 7 oz. Clara weighed 8 lbs 6 oz. at birth. I think Clara was 2 weeks in this picture, so she had lost a little weight since birth.

She is adorable!!! I'm sorry Clara has been sick. Peyton has been sick the last week too and it is so sad to see him that way. I can't believe she is already a month old the time goes so fast!!

Isn't it so fun to watch them learn new things and explore this crazy world they've joined! Being a mom is just so much fun!

She is sooooo cute! I can't believe it's been a whole month. I totally feel your pain when you talk about how hard it is to get her dressed. Both my girls were like that and really strong too. Charly still rolls over 10 times during one changing. Good luck with that one!
