flower headband: Petite Plume
Amelie turned 1 month old on January 18th. She's getting closer to two months now, and I can't believe how fast time has flown by and how much she has grown. Within the first few weeks, she outgrew her newborn sized clothing and moved onto 0-3 months. In order to record how much big she gets, we will take photos of her every month with the same stuffed animal, her giant polar bear squishable.
Josh and I were always afraid of holding newborn babies, but once we held Amelie in our arms for the first time, it just came natural to us. The first few weeks were the hardest, but after getting used to her time schedule, it really wasn't so bad. It's definitely hard waking up multiple times in the middle of the night, but once I look at her cute little face, it is all so worth it! She sleeps longer through the night now, so we're able to get some more sleep too.
It is so amazing to see the little skills that she gains throughout the month; there's something new every week. The best one of all was seeing her first smile. Each time she smiles, it melts my heart! She's able to recognize objects and toys, but loses interest in them very quickly. She's more interested in looking at everything around her, like the ceiling fan, or the book shelf.

Amelie has enriched our lives so much! People were right -- things have changed, but definitely for the better. Our weekends are spent at home playing and taking care of her, but there's nothing else we'd rather do. Josh and I are so excited to go on this new journey together as parents.
