Lillian Carrie is One Month Old

Its hard to believe my little rose bud will be 6 weeks old tomorrow! She has been such a sweetheart and had enriched or lives so much. Recently, she started to smile at us and hold eye contact for longer “conversations.” She likes to look at books with momma and cuddle lots.

Its fun having a little girl to dress up, and her brothers think she is beautiful. They haven’t been at all jealous, but we do try to include them as much as we can. Many times, I’ll let the boys pick out her clothes. Brent picked out this green onesie for her the day I had planned to take her 1-month pictures. I thought it looked cute with her rose blanket, so I didn’t change her.

At one month old, she was 9 lbs 8 oz. Her little chin is so cute (recessed jaw) but it makes it a little more difficult to breastfeed pain-free, so I will be happy when she grows out of that.

And aren’t her blue eyes just gorgeous?! She is so alert now, and we love the little smiles she gives us. Her sad faces are pretty cute, too, though!

Her big brother Zane is very affectionate, and ever since he saw me kiss her feet, he asks if he can kiss her feet, too.

One thing I have learned this month is to plan ahead, but take it one day at a time. I struggle with keeping to my previous routines of house work, creative work, preschool, cooking, and even self care. At the beginning of this month, I made goals for myself, but I’m nowhere close to meeting most of them. Yesterday is in the past, one hour ago is in the past. The only thing I can do Is keep on the path and not quit or give up.
