ONE month

 Leah is ONE month old!
If that isn't the cutest slouchy, serious faced baby, then I don't know what is!

Oh, Leah what a wonderful month it has been.  

We are over the moon happy to have you in our family, especially this big brother.
You are starting to recognize voices, especially Luke's and mine.  You turn toward the sound and usually start to make noises as well to join the 'conversation.'  In the last week you've starting to make cooing sounds, which we adore.
Luke loves to say sweet things to you and be silly.  He has called you everything from Uncle Scrooge to Baby Love and continues to come up with new names for his darling sister.

Most of the beginning of the month was spent sleeping, eating, and going through diapers in lightning speed.
You are a champ at all three.

As the weeks passed you woke up more and more. 
 Sometimes wicked hiccups wake you up, which is not so fun for any of us, especially you.

It's obvious that your vision is improving too, because you like to spend time on your activity mat and, like every other baby, you are mesmerized by the ceiling fan.
I'm so grateful that we made it through the holidays, and you stayed healthy.  There was a lot of time with family and lots of little ones with runny noses and grumpy tummies, but so far so good.  All that time with family meant we were away from home and I got to hold you a LOT, which was pretty much the best thing ever.  I really can't get enough time with you.  

You didn't have much of an opinion about your first bath.  It was kind of an indifferent experience, which was better than screaming through it, right?

We've seen you give a handful of smiles in the past few days, besides the ones that regularly happen in your sleep.
 Sweet Leah, we love you and can't wait to see what another month together will bring!
