1 month old!

Yesterday Adeline turned one month old! It's so hard to believe how fast she is growing up. We have really been blessed with a well behaved baby. She's a rock star at eating, sleeping, and has lately gotten really good at holding up her head. It's such a pleasure to notice all the little steps of progress that she takes.

Motherhood has definitely been a change in pace for me. It's a steep learning curve, but thanks to family and friends, I feel like it's been a good learning experience. The first couple weeks are full of emotions and recovery, but after that I felt as though I could really start to understand this new life in my arms. I knew that I was going to have a lot to learn once she arrived, but I did not anticipate how helpless I would feel at times. There is such a deep desire to make sure Adeline is being cared for in every way and to make her happy at all times. I realize now that is not always possible and to embrace her fussy moments. Luckily those fussy times are few and far between =)
Last night I was able to enjoy my first night of eight straight hours of sleep! Alex thankfully took the night feeding and Adeline only woke up once. It's amazing how thankful one can be for sleep! Hopefully Adeline is starting a new trend.
