It’s hard to believe it, but Hazel Mae turned one month old on August 21st! This first month has gone by SO incredibly fast. It’s been a dreamy, exhausting, wonderful time.
We’ve decided to do monthly photos to track Hazel’s growth and milestones. I’ll also be doing a monthly “favorites” list with items that we’re loving each month in the first year. (Check back later in the week for that!)
Here’s the first pic:
Hazel is such a happy babe. Above all else, she can’t get enough of her daddy’s face. She smiles at him nonstop (and even started giggling for the first time yesterday!)
We feel like we’ve been blessed with a pretty mellow baby. She certainly has her fussy moments, but she’s generally very consolable and engaged with her surroundings. It’s been amazing to see her wake up to the world around her in just these few short weeks.
She’s a great breastfeeder and has gained nearly THREE pounds and grown an inch since her birth— that puts her in the 93rd percentile for weight and off the charts for length! (My arms are getting quite the workout.)
I’m so excited to see what the next month brings… motherhood has been an amazing adventure so far :)
