1 Month Old

I can't believe my baby girl is already a month old. The old cliche is true, they really do grow up fast! It seems to hold true even more so for the second one. I guess that is because you learn the hard way with the first one. One minute they are helpless newborns and in the blink of an eye they are busy, independent toddlers! With this knowledge I am trying to enjoy and relish every moment I can (with both girls). Life with two kids has been an adjustment to say the least. And, I had no idea that the guilt I felt with one kid would quadruple with two! We are settling in though and finding our rhythm. Abby and Olivia already seem to have a special bond and I look forward to nurturing that bond and see it strengthen with time. Olivia seems to be just as strong willed as her big sister and reminds me very much of how Abby was at this age in many ways. There are areas where they differ though and if I had to decide now I would guess that Olivia is not going to be the girly-girl princess that Abby has perfected. That is only based on the fact that Olivia grunts, toots,and belches like a man and if Abby has any say in the matter they will prove me wrong. Olivia is growing and thriving and I've already had to pack away some of her newborn outfits because the are too short for my tall girl. She is very strong too, already holding her head up (shes been doing that for a few weeks now) and turning her head from side to side and picking it up off the ground while laying on her stomach. Andrew and I joke that it looks like she is just going to up and crawl away, but in all seriousness she is not a baby I would trust to stay in one place and I won't be leaving her on the middle of the bed or some place like that unattended. Well, I could go on forever but I am typing one handed as I am enjoying holding my sleeping one month old daughter and my bed is calling my name (hopefully for the next couple of hours anyway).
