I blinked, and my baby was one month old. I refuse to keep blinking. Let the staring contest with life begin.
If you search on Pinterest “baby growth pictures” you will see SO many cute ideas on how to document changes in your baby.
I’m in full on mom-mode, so of course all I do all day is take pictures of this little pumpkin, paparazzi style.
I decided that I wanted to do a weekly photo shoot, and a monthly photo shoot. Babies change so quick, and I thought it would be fun to have 52 pictures to show changes in Evelyn’s first year. After that, we’ll just stick to month to month.
I also have a
rehab level mild addiction to America’s Next Top Model, so I’m just doing my best to make Tyra proud. Hashtag: fierce & love. Hashtag: Pot Ledom. (Hashtag: Embarrassed. Hashtag: Please don’t judge me.)
One of my maternity pictures was me holding this felt nesting doll up to my bump.
It made perfect sense to keep using this doll as the control against the variable.
It is astonishing how much she has changed in 4 weeks. She hardly looks like a newborn anymore. In her first week of life she lost 9% of her birth weight. Then she made huge strides by gaining 40 grams a day. Evelyn has chunked up speedily.
Little Girl wasn’t a fan of sitting by herself in the Strandmon. I might be biased, but I do declare that she has the cutest Cry Face.
What we have learned about Evelyn’s personality so far:
Having her hands by her face.
Having the bassinet pre-heated before being laid in it.
Listening to a track of a heart beat on repeat… all night long. (Makes for some interesting dreams for me.)
Laying on Aaron’s chest. Not mine though.
Listening to mom rap.
