Really, a month already?

Oh sweet Charlotte, you are one month old today.  It is really hard for me to believe.  I feel like it was just yesterday that I was super uncomfortable and hugely pregnant. This month has gone by so quick!

This month has been tiring and full of changes.  Adjusting to life with three kids has been interesting!  You are a good girl and eat on a pretty good schedule of every 3 hours.  Giving me one stretch of 4-5 hours at night.  For which Mommy is so very thankful :)  However, since the heat has kicked up....you have been a bit of a crank butt.  Your belly is upset and you are projectile vomiting (a new thing for you), crying at night (which you never did before either) and making Mommy have lots of worry and guilt feelings.  I am not sure if you are not liking the house being between 75-80 degrees or if you maybe have mild reflux starting.  You sleep all the time but always have 3 times a day where you are awake for up to 2-3 hours!

Mommy has such a hard time getting things done when you are awake because all I want to do is hold you and admire how beautiful you are. Your brothers are so adoring of you.  Dominic and Logan love to hold you, cuddle you and tickle you!  You are your Daddy's princess.  Even if he does not want you to turn into a princess, heh!

You are growing like a weed and I cannot wait to see how tall you are on Friday.  You have grown out of so many 0-3 month sleepers already.  You have slept in your crib for a nap for the first time, putting yourself to sleep!

You are moving your arms and legs around more...you even grab at people's hair.  We love it when you roll your eyes, constantly sick our your tongue, make smiles in your sleep and giggle when you have gas or have a good dream. I would love if you could stay small but know that growing is what you are meant to do.  I am trying to take my Dads advise and not blink.  I do not want to miss anything!

Happy 1st month Charlie!
