Dear Sloane [One Month]

Dear Sloane,

Holy cow. You have officially been in the world a whole month now and I can't believe how fast time has flown. You are the most precious thing I've ever seen and I don't think I've ever met a happier baby. You are just perfection.

My phone keeps telling me I'm running out of space because I take so many photos and videos of you. My Instagram and Snapchat follows are getting spammed everyday with your cute face. But I just can't help it. You're my favorite thing in the entire world.

You're already sleeping 4 hour stretches at night which has been such a blessing. You sleep in your bassinet in our room and only wake to eat. Except for a few nights, once you're full you go right back to sleep--it's been amazing. Daytime is another story and we're still working on getting your naps to be longer. You have quite the internal clock and it tells you it's time to wake up right at 30 minutes.

At only 3 weeks old you were already smiling at us. Mornings are your favorite and I always look forward to our little chats on the changing table as we get you ready for the day. Your wiggly charm is just too much for me to handle sometimes. You've started making little noises and it's quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever heard. Dad's working really hard on getting you to say "Ahhh gooo". I'm not completely sure why this is his chosen phrase, but you are hard at work learning it :)

You have quite the personality already and I can't wait to watch it grow. Some of the faces you make are the funniest things I've seen. Dad and I joke that you have "Resting Bitch Face". Sorry, little one... you got that from your Momma.

Other than our morning chats, your favorite things include licking your play mat instead of doing Tummy Time, Stevie Nicks, sitting upright (with help) so you can see the world, and taking naps on Dad's chest. You HATE waiting for food and make sure the whole house (or restaurant) knows it. And if you never had to be strapped into your car seat again it would be too soon. You hate that thing.

You are quite independent and very determined. You keep checking off developmental leaps left and right. Before I know it you'll be crawling around chasing your furry siblings. But we're in no rush, little one. Don't grow up too fast, please. For now, I'm going to soak up every minute I get with your cute, snuggly, little one-month-old self.

To be honest, I never really thought I'd be a good mom. You see, I've never really been comfortable around babies. But I have to say, I cannot imagine my life without you now. I have slid right into motherhood and truly enjoy caring for you each and every day. You make my life such an adventure and I didn't think it was possible to love something as much as I love you. So, Sloane, here's to one month down and many, many more to come.
