1 month

Only 1 month old and she already knows how to Robocop.
That’s my girl.

Seriously. It’s been a month since I had a baby?
I guess it feels like a month.
And then it doesn’t.
And then I look back at hospital pics and realize how much Clara has already changed.
She’s more alert at times but also more fussy.
Her crusty cord fell off revealing her tiny belly button.
She continues to sleep great at night. She went for 6 hours last night! Her new record!
She only likes the car seat when the car is moving (I forgot babies can be like that)
Overall, she’s still a cute little thing and a fairly good baby.

Of course a girl can only sit up for so long.
I can’t blame her.
Life is exhausting.

  2. Oh she’s so cute – amazing that first month. Here I am and it’s 5 months since my baby started to rock my world – still feels like yesterday and at the same time like he has been here forever. Happy 1 month πŸ™‚

  8. 8) kellie

    she’s so sweet! i feel like the time goes faster with each kid! maybe it’s because there’s so much more going on. she’s beautiful.

  9. Oh my goodness, Clara is absolutely adorbale!!! Congratulations!!! ( I think I missed the initial home from the hospital post) What a cutie. And she is sleeping good at night already? Ummm…wow!!! She is such a cutie pie, great pics – as always :).

  10. oh my gosh dana, that last pic is so cute and hilarious. life is exhausting! πŸ™‚

  11. she can give some baby fever!! :o) what a doll!

  12. what a cutie pie! I can’t believe it’s been a whole month. That’s good. It means mine is getting closer to coming. πŸ™‚

  13. How cute!

    You are so lucky that she sleeps that well! Is she sleeping in her crib? maybe a bassinet? I am due in June and I would love to know how you accomplished this amazing thing!

  14. Oh goodness, what a cute little squish. I love her little socks! I had some like that for my little Olivia and I shoved them on til it was embarrassing how undersized they were, ha! I’m pretty sure that one was just born too, but here she was today pulling her sister’s socks out and trying to put them on b/c her feet were cold. Why do babies grow up so fast?!

  15. What a cutie. Days go by so quickly and slowly at the same time. Thank goodness for photos to capture all the changes.

  16. What a doll, my little one is 2 weeks old on Monday, I cannot believe how quickly time is passing!

    Love the pics, they are great!

  19. 21) rachel

    Dana, your kids are so cute! and I love seeing that you have the ikea high-chair….. That thing is AWESOME.

  20. Carinissima!!! And she also sleeps… Great!
    It’s amazing how much they change. Today it’s the 2nd birthday of Alessio and I made a collage with his photos in these 2 years. He has changed everyday!
    Have a great w-end!

  21. oh, she’s so cute!!! And wow, 6 hours already? That’s awesome.

  27. 31) nancy

    Oh my goodness, Clara is just the sweetest little babe!! Congrats – you have a darling family!
    I thought you hadn’t updated in a long time, but it was all my fault for not changing your address on my blog. Glad to know you are updating more often than I thought.
    Have a joyful weekend.

  28. 32) Rina

    O what a sweety pie πŸ™‚

    Only one little thing…babies so young should not be sitted in a chair like that. Her back is not yet ready for holding the weight.

  29. 34) Katia

    Che bambina adorabile!!!!
    Auguri a te, alla piccola Clara e ai due monelli piΓΉ grandi da un’amica italiana.

  30. 35) Lauren

    OK that last pic made me giggle. Poor little thing, saying “uh hello Mom, help here?” Enjoy the newborn phase with all its challenges πŸ™‚ Although 6 hours, awesome!

  31. 36) becky

    too cute for words…especially the last shot…;)

  32. 37) Carmen Russell

    She is so cute,I wish her all the best in life.

  33. 38) Carrie

    ADORABLE! Isn’t it devastating that they grow up so fast??

  34. 39) Spark*Amy

    What a cutie! And her hair looks so dark! Were your other 2 like that? Maybe you’ll get your brunette after all!

  35. 41) Melody

    Those pictures, and that narrative, are cracking me up! You are so great at capturing the moment. I had all but forgotten that both of my girls (age 7 and 3) used to be a little tippy like that too! So sweet. And little. And tippy. : ) Thanks for the giggle.

  36. 42) Kathy Laird

    Wow Dana! She is so adorable! Have lots of fun with her, they grow up too fast!

  37. Heheh so cute!! She has so much hair! Did the other babies lose their hair or did they keep it? Vince had SO much white/see-through hair and it rubbed off within days and he was bald for ages.

  38. 44) Annelize Webb

    My goodness, she is adorable! I am dying to have another little one…this is surely increasing the broodiness for me!!!

    I am also very impressed that you are still updating your blog so much with a small baby around….please tell your secret for all that energy πŸ˜‰

  39. 45) Sarah K.

    SO cute! I have a photo not unlike that last one up at work of my daughter holding my son at about that same age. He started out propped up and slowly fell over. He looks bewildered she’s just thrilled to be holding baby brother. It makes me smile every time I see it. Congrats on one month!

  40. 48) VickiT

    Oh my gosh. What a cutie pie. Congrats on making it that first month. I do remember those early days after my babies were born, especially my last pregnancy since it was twin boys. LOL

    And today (march 10th) is actually the one month birthday of my adorable little Granddaughter too.

  41. 49) Gabi Cooper

    Wow, I can’t believe it either! It seems like it was just last week. Anyway, Congrats! She’s darling.
    Btw, I’m expecting my third child and I’m due in less than 5 weeks. I don’t know if it is a girl or a boy but, if it is a girl I will keep an eye out for your tips and ideas on baby stuff for inspiration!! Looking forward to some. Gabrielle.

  42. Lovely photos of Clara! She is growing fast! before you know it, she’ll be chasing the rest around the house! thank you for sharing her!

  43. 51) Andrea

    Everytime I come by your blog lately… it REALLY makes me want to make another little blonde baby of our own. We have two and have been on the fence about a third. Your cute little Clara makes me think 3 is a good idea!

  44. I have an 11 week old, and have decided that babies put you into some weird time warp. Everything feels so slow and fast at the same time.

  45. she is so sweet and precious, dana! congrats again!

  46. Cute girl πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ i lv her soooooooooo much… & ur blog my dear

    Frm Sri Lanka

  47. She looks delicious as homemade strawberry jam. I’d eat her up.

  48. It’s insane how fast the days add up. Clara is a sweetie!

    My youngest will be passing her first trip around the sun next week! Wasn’t I just holding her tiny 7 lb, 6 oz body in my arms? *sigh*

  49. sweetness! congratulations on your little miracle!

  50. 58) lebo

  53. She’s so cute! This month has gone by sooooo fast!

    Fussyness—-from my experience is momma’s diet. Have you tried eliminating dairy?!?!?!! SOLVED EVERYTHING for us!
