Emily was one month old yesterday! In some ways, the past month has flown by, but in other ways, it feels like Emily has been a part of our family for a lot longer. She is getting bigger every day, and we notice new things about her all the time. She loves to focus on things, especially light. She makes LOTS of faces, and is getting really close to smiling back at us when we smile at her. She is getting really good at sleeping during the night, and normally wakes up only to eat and then goes right back to sleep. That is a really big blessing for Eric and me.
But, she also caught her first cold last week, and that has made her a little more grumpy than usual. At least, I'm hoping that the cold is the cause for her crankiness! Her poor little nose is all stuffy making it harder for her to eat and even sleep sometimes. The doctor says that colds in newborns usually last one to two weeks, so we're hoping that we are at the tail end of this one.
Enjoy some of her latest photos!
