Happy 1 month today, Mazy!
I remember when we took her home from the hospital, thinking "wow, 1 month is so far away and I can't imagine how much she will change!" Well, that 1 month mark is now here and boy has she changed! Being her mother, of course I am going to be biased, but she is getting cuter and cuter by the day!
I am also SO happy to say that this week has been a complete turnaround! She is a different baby girl! She is consolable, smiling, able to just lay in your arms comfortably, and is napping. I think I am also figuring her out a little better too. I am not sure if it was the chiropractor, gas drops, or me cutting down on dairy that has changed this girl, but I am going with all 3! What an answer to prayer this has been! Yes, she still cries, but she is a baby and we expect that. But her cries are not cries of pain and so we pray that this will continue! Ah, again, what an answer to prayer!
I am so excited to see what this next month brings, though I also don't wish the weeks to fly by. I have to say that it seems like 10 years ago that I gave birth to her, but I feel we have been able to savor the moments!
She is getting tall and what I like to call "filling out". She was such a skinny squirt when she was born, and now her legs, arms, face, and even little tummy are starting to get some meat on them. Like I said earlier, we had to retire the newborn clothes, but that's okay. She's cute in whatever size clothes she is in!
Being one month after delivering her, I have to say that I am feeling SO good! It is very humbling to say that because it was such a different story a month ago. God has brought so much healing into my life! I even went on a long-er walk today and felt great. Weeks ago, we thought I would be recovering from open heart surgery, so I am just beyond thankful to God for the work He has done in my body!
It has been in the 70s here in Minnesota, so we have taken full advantage and went on some walks! Takes her a bit to get to this point, but this is always my goal - a nap for her!
Now that she isn't so fussy, I am able to explore new options, like carrying her around in this! Sometimes she likes it sometimes she doesn't, but she looks so cute in it with her little long legs hanging out!
Snuggle time with dad is an everyday thing!
Some 1 month pictures! Forgive me for the repetitiveness of these, but I couldn't decide which ones to post, so I decided to post them all (except the one that I have of her mid-spit up :))
Praising God for our little Mazy Grace! What a little personality she is getting and what joy we have to be able to raise her! That God would choose US to raise this beauty! What a gift!
