One Month Old

My dear, sweet Ellie Bean, my last baby--I love you more than words can express. You have completed our family, made it whole. It just amazes me how you have found your place in our family so quickly. It is as if you have always belonged.

I love holding you and gazing into your big, gray eyes. You look up at me, holding one of my fingers as tightly as you can and smile. It melts my heart each and every time. During the first three weeks, you slept 90% of the day, but this past week, you have truly woken up. You will drift off in my arms, but the minute I put you down, those eyes pop open, and you let everyone in the house, probably in the neighborhood, know that you want back in my arms. So, I scoop you back up and cuddle some more. This, too, shall pass, but in the meantime, I am going to soak up every minute of it.

Watching Nathan and Emma with you is so much fun. They adore you and fight often over who gets to sit on the side that your head is facing. Nathan will trick Emma into moving and Emma will put Nathan into a neckhold until he moves. And I swear you have reached for them and smiled at them from week one. They give you a million kisses and hugs a day. They simply love being near you, just as I do.

To the moon and back, baby girl.
