you're one month old, wattsie!

You're one month old, my sweet baby Wattsie!

And I cannot believe it! It seems like just yesterday I was lying in the hospital bed at Baptist East. I was so nervous about meeting you, but it seems that we are perfect for each other.


You are wearing some newborn clothes, but you are mostly wearing 0-3 and 3 months clothes. You are still in newborn diapers despite Daddy's desire for you to wear size 1 diapers. (We have a hefty supply of size 1 diapers, where as we've already gone through all of the newborn size supply we bought before you were born resulting in a couple of trips to Wal-Mart to buy diapers.)

You are a pretty good sleeper. You sleep in our room, and you sleep almost 6 hours straight every night. We usually put you down about midnight, and you wake up about 6 a.m., then you'll wake up again for good at 8:30. We can't complain about that at all.

You are a good eater, too. You eat usually every 2 to 2 1/2 hours during the day for 15-20 minutes. You will take a bottle no problem. You usually drink 3 oz. when you take a bottle.


You are very particular. You don't really like to rock or sit in a pumpkin seat. You like to be held, but you only like to cuddle when you're asleep. You like to look around, and you love lights. You don't like to be by yourself, and you cry and cry if we ever leave you on the couch to sleep and you wake up and realize you're alone.

You don't mind your bath at all. We did make the mistake of giving it to you once right before bedtime, and you were wide awake after that, so now you get your bath in the mornings. You love your Puj tub, and it makes bath time easy on Momma.


You love to ride in the car, and you did so great on our long drive to Alabama for Christmas. You slept the whole way until we got to Huntsville, and then you got a little fussy. We fed you twice on the ride.

People have differing opinions on who you look like-- some say you look like me, and some say you look like your daddy. We'll have to wait until you're a little older to see what color eyes you have. Your eyelashes and eyebrows are starting to get a little thicker, and you still have all of your dark, black hair you had when you were born. You have beautiful skin-- it's so soft, and you're complexion is gorgeous. You are such a pretty girl!!


You had a great first Christmas! You got lots of new clothes, new books, a Bible from Momma and Daddy, money (for your savings account), a pearl bracelet, and a few toys.


We have had so much fun with you the past month. You are such a good baby, and your daddy and I are so blessed to have you as our daughter. You are our pride and joy!!




We love you so much, Wattsie! Thank you for making us parents. You are a great, great blessing to us, and we praise God that He entrusted you to us.

Happy 1 month birthday, my little girl! Always remember you have my heart.
