A Month in the Making

Last Friday Baby #2 / Baby L / Ya-Ya 
turned 1 month old! 
She starting to gain quite a bit of weight, but I think most of it is in her cheeks.
Just to be fair, her little legs are starting to chunk up too. 
She is starting to move out of her newborn clothes and into her 0-3 month-ers.  
 Her hair is kind of weird.
I don't know how to explain it other than 'wire-y'
But she is also starting to get a lot more curl. 
I think it is going to be more like Sergio's 
curls than mine.
It's going to be fun to see what it looks like 
in a couple more months. 
She has also learned a few new tricks 
in the last 4 weeks. 
This is my favorite one so far. 
There is nothing quite like those first,
not gas,
smiles. 
She loves her daddy and her big sister. 
He can always get her to smile and to calm down if she's got a bubble. 
She is also getting pretty good at doing this: 
She has been able to lift her head pretty well since she was first born... 
She now lifts it on purpose and looks to see where noise is coming from. 
It doesn't usually last very long before she gets pretty tired. 
Then she just assumes the position. 
She won't really take suckies (pacifiers) so she just chews on anything within cheek distance.
She loves to be on her tummy, and if I would let her,
she would sleep on her belly.

Ya-Ya has to be one of the most laid back babies
in the world.
She eats, sleeps and occasionally poops.
She loves to look around at the world 
taking everything in.
She is really happy and very seldom cries.

It's amazing to me how much they can grow and learn in such a short amount of time.
They are so easy to love.
It's a constant eternal battle of wanting her to stay small forever,
and the excitement of seeing what she is going to be like when she gets a little bit bigger.
We keep just trying to enjoy every second.

I can't believe how big she is getting.

That is a pretty impressive hair line she has there.

So precious. Was your other one this dark? I think is going to be VERY curly.
