happy one month!


One month ago, today, you entered this world & changed our lives forever.

The past 4 weeks have been the most challenging, happiest, most rewarding days of our lives.

There were days in the first week of you being home that I just sat & cried, because I loved you so much from day one, but was scared to death that I could not give you what you needed. When people say that babies do not come with a user manual, they are not lying! There is no way to prepare yourself for baby class, no book, no's something you have to just trust your gut with & jump in.

The Lord has blessed us beyond comprehension.

Recap from your one month dr appt:

{brag session, you have gone for your 1 wk, 2 wk, & one month appt thus far & have been a rockstar everytime, no fussing = a happy mom!}

you weigh 10 lb 8 oz

you are 21.5" long

*thx Aunt Kilbi for the monthly stickers!

you eat at 4, 8, 12 (yay for a schedule!)

you nap in your swing & crib during the day

you sleep in your moses basket every night, right beside me :)

you love tummy time!

every night your daddy gives you a are definitely a water baby!

you are a snuggler through & through.

you are becoming more & more active, especially in the mornings!

The first month as a family of three has been incredible & we cannot wait to see what the future holds Bent!

How Stella Got Her Groove Back

No my name isn't Stella but that movie title came to mind to describe the tone in the B house...

Having a baby does all kinds of things to the noggin'...for me it was the constant thought of "Will life ever feel normal again?"

...then it became clear to me that searching for the familiar feeling of how things used to be was just spinning tires...that it was time to embrace the way things would now be!

So with the help of baby coo's, sweet family & friends, and a really amazing husband...Stella most definitely has her groove back :)


Loving this song...heading to the lake tonight!

Fingers crossed for our first wknd away!
