One Month Chloe

One month! Already! I can't believe my baby is already a month old. Time flies when you're losing sleep having fun! :) Here's what I've learned, in one month:

1) Girls really do just wanna have fun!

2) Pink/purple are becoming some of my favorite colors...

3) There are more rolls, down there, when wiping up poopy... I mean, really... I use far more fresh wipes on Chloe than I ever did on the boys!

4) There really ARE nicknames for the name Chloe: I tend to call her Chlo', while her cousin calls her Baby 'Lo.

5) My children have amazingly strong necks. They've all head their heads up "early". Chloe has been holding her head up for about two weeks. Maybe it's because she's all head and very little neck??

6) I *can* handle three kids.

7) Breastfeeding is HARD but not impossible with two other kids running around and demanding attention.

8) My girl LOVES to be held. It's quite hard to put her down without a fight. We are working on this.

9) Dressing her up daily is amazingly fun! I love it, really.

10) I can't wait for the years to come! :)

My SIL has a new baby, also her third, also a girl, about the same age as your Chloe and I think she's pretty amazed that she can handle it too. LOL

I am so excited for you, I remember when you found out, and then when you found out that you were carrying baby Chloe.

I am sure you are so in love with her.. I bet she OWNS Daddy's heart.. but the greatest thing, is that you have a new best friend, even when the teenage years get hard, you will still be her best friend!

That last picture is a crack-up! She is such a sweetie and, methinks, going to be the spit of her Mommy????

I'm not sure if I've said this yet, so....
congratulations on the birth of that beautiful baby girl!!! She is a doll- and oh, so tiny!
BTW - thanks for the wrap up post from 09 - as someone who never gets around to reading any blogs anymore, it was nice to find out what you guys were up to.
Sorry to hear about Matty, though. His hospital stay must have been so scary for you. I'll remember him in my prayers. :-)

I am totally showing #3 to her when she gets old enough to understand. Oh the horrors! :)
