Brian thought I took a lot of photos last year on all our Europe trips. That was before we had a baby. Let's just say, Sydney's first month is very well documented. She is just so cute, I can't resist. I'm sure all new parents can relate. Oh, she's asleep, let's take a photo. She is awake, photo! Her first bath, photo. First car trip, photo. First time wearing a new outfit, photo!
We have so many photos, I completely overlooked this one that should have been in my last post. I love it. It's all Sydney's Aunt's and Uncles on Brian's side and her 3 cousins, visiting us at the hospital!
The first month with Sydney flew by. I say that now, but there were definitely moments that it didn't seem like it was flying by at the time. It's crazy to look back at the photos from the hospital and compare them to her at 1 month - what a difference. She weighed 8 pounds on her 1 month birthday, which is 2 pounds more than when we brought her home from the hospital.
Now that she is a little bit bigger, I'm not as nervous about breaking her. I've learned how to tote her around 1 handed and have stopped (well, almost stopped) worrying about every little grunt, snort or new thing she does.
Sydney experienced a lot of new things in her first month. She went on her first road trip, attended her first BBQ, celebrated her first holiday, had her first bath, read her first book and started to smile.
As her parents, we obviously think she is the cutest baby ever. Here are some of my favorite photos, and photos of her firsts during month 1.
