One Month

Today our sweet London is one month old.  It is nearly impossible to believe that she has been in our arms for four weeks now.

March 2013

Despite the typical adjustments with a newborn, she has fit seamlessly into our family, a missing piece we didn't even realize we needed until she was here.

Jason and I are smitten, as is her big brother.  He tells her all the time what a good baby she is, how pretty she is, and how they are "best friends."

And a good baby she is.  She is alert when awake, but even though she doesn't nap super well during the day (and likes to stay up from about 2-3:30 at night) she does sleep from her nighttime feeding at 9 until 2 most nights.  She loves to look around, and thankfully she doesn't seem to be bothered by lots of noise from Connor.  She is content most of the time, unless hungry or gassy, and even then she is very easy to calm.

Connor, London, and I spent the day at home, her lounging and us playing lots of pretend.  It was one of the best days we've had since her arrival.  I feel so blessed to have been blessed with two amazing children, and a wonderful husband and family to share them with.  God is good.

I thought it would be fun to compare Connor and London at their different ages.  Below on the left is Connor at one month old, in October 2009, and on the right, obviously, is London.  Jason bought them each a respective stuffed animal to take their picture with each month.  Connor still loves his giraffe.

Hi Laura! Hopped over from ETST and wanted to say congrats on little London. Happy 1 month to her (yesterday!) and happy 1 month of being a mommy of TWO to you! I have a little guy just about a year and a half younger than your Drew and will probably be in your shoes with a second this time next year (God-willing of course!) Anyway, can't wait to read more on your blog and I hope you stop by to follow mine. I'll need advice around dealing with toddler boys from more experienced mommas! :)

Can't get over her hair! I have a friend with a 2mo. She is nursing, but at about 11pm every night daddy goes in, scoops baby girl up and gives her a bottle. It's called dream feeding. We had some success with it with Dane, but my friend's little miss is already sleeping through the night. She never full wakes up when eating, but it fills her belly and helps her sleep til 6am. You might have heard about that trick r even be trying it--just thought I'd pass it along. As blissful as it all is, sleep is coveted and precious! :)

I can't believe she's been here a month already! Wow! I also can't believe how much she resembles Connor even though their hair is totally different colors. Still loving her name! (My niece's middle name is Elise too.)
