Don't worry Jason wasn't really asleep, she's safe on the edge of the couch! Just to clarify ;)
I love how she sleeps! She loves sleeping with her arms above her head so we usually don't swaddle her and let her get comfy.
She has the prettiest blue eyes!
I wanted to weigh her and we have a package scale so... I think she liked it!
Hello world! Guys, babies are the best. Especially when that baby belongs to you forever! Brighton is such a cool baby. That's the best way I can describe her. She goes with the flow and is always just so chill and relaxed. She only fusses a little bit when she need something, usually food. She's already a month old!! So crazy but (like EVERYONE always says) it seems like we've never been without our sweet baby girl. She is a professional napper and her first few weeks, she threw really great parties all night long. ;) She wasn't the best night sleeper but she is getting so much better at sleeping more through the night and just waking up to eat.
Here's some good ol mom moments. You know, the ones that really welcome you into motherhood.
1. I've been thrown up on like 6 times and I don't even care. She never cries after so the worst part is just having to spend another 30 minutes feeding her again. But I mean 30 extra minutes to snuggle her isn't bad at all :) Only when it's a night feeding and all I want is sleep.
2. She's pooped on our *white* rug and *white* bed spread. It came out fine but I guess this means I should probably stop buying white things... or stop changing her on white things.
3. I cried when she smiled at me. Yeah I know, I'm really a mom. She stared at me and just smiled for like 20 seconds. 20!!!! And it wasn't even because of poop/gas. She just did it and I couldn't handle it because I was like "omg I think this means she loves me back!!!!!"
4. Her umbilical cord stump finally fell off at almost 4 weeks old. But when it falls off, you have to find it. I found it stuck to my boob.
And now some quick things about baby girl so I can remember them forever, ya know?
She still fits in newborn everything! She has grown about 2" since birth and gained 2 pounds. She smiles a lot, loves baths, loves the car, loves her swing, basically she is an easy little one to please. She recognizes our voices which is so cool!! Her stork bite (the red mark on her forehead) has faded a lot since birth. I don't even miss shopping for myself because I love buying her cute things. She sleeps in our room in a bassinet for now, we will probably move her to her crib soon! We're pretty sure she doesn't like her bassinet because she loves to stretch out when she sleeps and the bassinet seems cramped for that. She naps in her crib and loves it. She sleep talks so much and it's so cute. Basically I think everything is cute about her. Even when she poops it's cute. Newborn startle reflexes are probably the cutest things. She keeps trying to lift her head and roll over when she's on her tummy.
Overall, we are both pretty dang obsessed with her! Transition into motherhood doesn't even seem like a transition at all. People keep asking if it's so weird having a baby or if it's this or that and honestly, all I can say is it just feels natural! Like, it feels like this is how it's supposed to be. It's not hard because it was as expected. Like I knew sleep would be a work in progress since she's little and I knew I'd be taking care of someone 24/7, I guess I was more ready for it than I thought! I'm so grateful she is ours and I love being her mama :)
