Sabrina @ 1 Month

  • A lot has happened in my very short little life! The weekend after I was born, I got to see a lot of family that had travelled in to be here for Uncle Joe's graduation. I was dedicated, went to Uncle Joe's graduation, went on a safari ride @ Lake Tobias with all my cousins, went to a wedding, & attended my very first VBS.
  • So far, Mommy & Daddy say I'm a pretty easy baby.
  • I do not like to be wet!
  • I spend a lot of time in my swing.
  • I had jaundice & almost had to be re-admitted to the hospital. Thankfully, Mommy & Daddy worked really hard at feeding me every 2 hours around the clock & getting me in the sunlight & I didn't have to go back to the hospital.
  • I love to be swaddled up tight.
  • I don't like my car seat very much.
  • My big brother, Grant, really loves me. When I'm crying in the car, he reaches over to hold my hand. He also likes to "share" his toys with me & tells Mommy when I'm crying. One time, he even tried to give me a "high five"! ;-) He's going to take good care of me as I grow up.
  • I've been sleeping through the night for a couple of weeks, now! Mommy & Daddy are soooo happy about this & can't believe their good fortune!
  • I really love to be talked to, & have been giving Mommy & Daddy some really sweet smiles, lately.
  • I'm finally starting to get the hang of nursing. I really stressed my Mommy out during those first few days when all I wanted to do was sleep. I think she got spoiled by how well Grant nursed & she forgot how hard it is for new babies & mommies to get it all figured out. But I think we finally figured it out....
  • Ryleigh, my big sister, loves to hold me. Sometimes she helps Mommy by holding me during church. She also likes to rock me & sing to me.
  • Yay! Mommy found a Bumbo seat for me @ a yard sale this weekend. I still can't hold my head up for very long, but I've been enjoying sitting in it for short periods of time. I think I'm going to be using it a lot!
  • My hair is still kind of dark, but Mommy thinks it's getting lighter. She's really hoping it stays dark, though, 'cause she's always wanted a little girl with dark hair.
  • I'm still just a little peanut. Even though I am growing, everyone still comments on how tiny I am. I'm definitely a lot more petite than my brother & sister were at my age!
  • I have really long fingers. Hmm... maybe I'll play the piano when I get bigger.
  • Mommy & Daddy still aren't sure who I look like, although I'm starting to resemble a few pictures of Ryleigh at my age.

Love the last picture! Also, Love hearing that Grant is so sweet with her! I sure hope Clayton is the same to his sister!

I'm sure he will love her, too, Kara. We do have to watch Grant, though, 'cause he tends to be a little rough with her. The other day, I caught him yanking on her ears & nose. She started screaming like she was dying! Also, we've noticed that he misses the attention of being the baby. He seems to be doing a lot of unnecessary screaming, lately. I've been trying to spend more one-on-one time with him & I notice a big difference when I do.

She is adorable. How wonderful that she is sleeping through the night! With everything that has happened in her first month of life, it sounds like she needed to rest! Thank God you are young, but you do need to take care of yourself and not overdo it.

Shari, Dad and I just loved reading about Sabrina's first month! She has already grown up even though she still is tiny....please give them all big hugs...I love the way you describe Ry's and Grant's interactions with her. And SOO glad that she is sleeping now through the night. That is a blessing that I didn't have with any of my three for quite awhile:)

Love ya!
