Happy 1 Month Birthday Princess Emery!

Princess Emery,

Today, you are one month old. One whole month!! I have to admit that this month seems to have flown by and if this is any indication how the months to come are going to go, I seriously need time to slow down!

You are an absolute dream come true for our family and we are so blessed to have you in our lives. Chase adores you and will not leave for school in the mornings without saying goodbye to you and giving you a kiss on the head. As soon as he comes home, you are the first person he comes to see. It warms my heart to see it and I know that when you can interact that ya'll are going to have a lot of fun!

Daddy and I adore you as well. We are both rather tired at the moment, but certainly wouldn't have it any other way! We really can't complain because we both know that it could be so much worse.

You have grown so much in this last month and are slowly losing that newborn look. It makes me a little sad to see you changing so quickly, but I know that nothing stays the same forever. I really think that in the next few days you'll be showing us some true smiles because yesterday you came really close and then again today. You love to just stare at us and mimic sticking your tongue out when we do it to you. You are not a huge fan of the swing and the bouncy is OK, but if you had it your way you would just stay in our arms all the time. Who can blame you?

You are still nursing and getting formula, but your reflux has thrown quite the kink into things. The new formula has you rather constipated and we are working on a solution for that. As far as the nursing, you'd do it all day but there just isn't enough there for that, so we take what we can. You do not like the pacifier and would rather just use me for the comfort. I'm OK w/that when we are at home, but boy it's be nice if you'd take the pacifier when we are out and about!

Everyone that meets you falls totally in love w/you and it does not surprise me one bit. You are a beautiful, wonderful, child of God and are going to fill our lives with so much joy in the times to come.

We love you Princess!!
