A Note to My Baby Girl: You're 1 Month Old!

My beautiful girl,

You've changed our lives in a million ways, but it seems you've been here forever. 
You're a pretty calm babe. Don't get me wrong, when you get mad, you get MAD...But overall you just want to snuggle and eat. 
Seriously, you eat so much.
 But thats a great, because you're growing! You're in the 85th percentile across the board!
 You're brother is crazy about you. He loves hugging you and kissing you. He has all big brother things covered.
You are just the prettiest girl. I couldn't have dreamed up a more perfect daughter. 

 I want to eat you like, all the time. I mean look at those wittle legs!
 You're always on the move. You've been lifting your head since the day you were born, and those legs of yours don't stop moving.
You haven't smiled at us socially yet (well, I kinda think you did but all the books tell me I'm wrong and that you're too young....dumb books), but you're a smiley girl. You just seem so content most of the time.
I can't wait for the first time Oscar makes you smile. My heart might explode.

I'm excited to show you the world, but if I'm being honest, I'm also terrified. Life isn't always easy and there are many things out there that can hurt you. But sweet girl, there are amazing things to be seen. We will do everything in our power to nurture your power and curiosity. We'll protect you fiercely, but when we cant, we'll trust you and your strength. You have so many people standing behind you always.
Some days I wake up and cant believe how incredible my life is. It's hard sometimes, and exhausting...but I get you, your brother and your Daddy. I need nothing more. Thank you for completing our family baby girl, we cant wait to see you grow.

I love you, I love you, I love you

We had a baby girl!

I just signed on to post my first "A Note to My Baby Girl" posts for our new daughter and realized I didnt have a post announcing her arrival!

Nora Hawkins was born July 28th and we love her to pieces. I'm the luckiest Mama.
