Annalee Estelle | One Month

Dear Annalee,

We have loved getting to know you this month! You're sweet smile and beautiful blue eyes captured our hearts from the very beginning. You have a really sweet spirit and are such a good baby. You love hanging out on the sofa in your newborn lounger and you sleep so well in your bassinet by our bed. Sometimes you even like to nap in your own crib during the day! We went three weeks without giving you a paci, but finally caved - and you love it! You have been a good eater since you were born, waking up yourself to eat every 3-4 hours, sometimes more often in the beginning. Now you even give us one long 4-5 hour stretch at night - which we are so grateful for. Your daddy loved celebrating his first Father's Day with you, and we loved taking you out for your first trip to church. Father Joe even gave you a blessing to hold you over until your baptism. You have had so many visitors and been showered with gifts since the day you arrived! You loved spending time with your Gramma and your GranDe & PapaSam this month, and even got to meet Uncle Rob and Aunt Karen. For your one-month birthday we had your first sleepover with Megan, Matt and Mary Mac and visited King Family Vineyards for the afternoon. I'm so happy that you made me a Momma and us a family of three!
