To Dorothy on your one month birthday

My sweet baby girl,

I can't believe you have been with us for a month already. The time has just flown by with how busy we have become. I know your first year is going to go by so fast and I want to treasure every minute with you. You have been a constant delight to me even when you are fussy:

I have never felt the way I did the first days of your life outside of my belly:

I love it when you fall asleep while you're eating:

Even though figuring out the feeding has been a challenge, I'm glad we've figured it out. When I know you are full and happy, that's all that matters. I could stare at your precious face all day:

We have done so many things together already. We even went on our first trip to the beach! You really just slept the whole time, but we took you for a walk on the beach:

While Daddy played in the water:

We even watched the sunset together:

I can't wait to see all your little "firsts" as you grow up. We've already seen your first smile:

You just keep getting more beautiful to me each day, baby girl. I am so thankful you made it here safely. You will always be my little miracle baby!!

So glad things are going great. She is precious. I can't wait to read more about her and your adventures in motherhood. Time flies, so make sure you keep taking tons of pictures.

So Becci I promised I promised I would post a comment. I think Dorothy is very cute! I would have loved to hold her today but didn't want to wake her when she was sleeping so soundly in her carseat. I hope your family pic come out great (of course they will) and hope to see them posted here when you get them back.
