Dear Sadie Elizabeth,
Today you're a month old! It's hard to believe you've been on the outside world that long. It was a bit sad when the last of your umbilical cord fell out because now all evidence of your life in the womb is gone but enough crazy for now :). You really are such a sweet baby and when you get fussy all you need is your pacifier to be soothed. Man do you love that pacifier, the wub-a-nub has become mom & dad's best friend. You like to make all kinds of funny noises, your dad has affectionately named them "wildlife noises." You're learning to sleep longer at night and we greatly appreciate that. Hopefully one day soon we'll learn how to swaddle you tight enough that you don't escape like Houdini! You've had lots of firsts this month: 6:33, Target, church, visitors, and I'm sure I'm missing some, but unfortunately you've been asleep for most of them. You've still got some crazy hair, people keep telling me I should put some gel in there and spike it into a well defined mohawk, I keep saying maybe, if you were a BOY! One day all those sweet little bows, that are just waiting for their debut, will stay put in your super fine, soft hair.
All of this to say Sadie Elizabeth, we love you dearly and even though our lives have changed drastically (that admittedly has been hard to accept at times) you bring so much joy into our lives that we couldn't imagine life without you!
*Please bear with the cutesyness once a month. I "borrowed" this idea from another blog- I think it's so much fun to be able to look back years from now at each stage of Sadie's life*
