Baby Marin: Week Four

Where to even begin.... our little girl is a month old already.  I kind of feel like I've just been in this alternate universe of maternity leave and time passes so differently than before. I keep having to tell myself that it won't be like this forever. I will have to return to work at some point. I will have to face reality. I try not to think about that too much and try to soak in these precious moments while I have them. 

Marin seems to be changing daily, right before our very eyes. Our little newborn baby isn't so much of a newborn any more. Her expressions are becoming filled with more personality. She is becoming more vocal everyday. Her newborn clothes are slowly beginning to become snug. She isn't napping nearly as much as before and our nights are slowly becoming more pleasant due to the fact that she is only waking to nurse once or twice. Hallelujah! 

She still hates baths. Cutting her fingernails is probably the worst task we have been given as parents. Her little fingers. So little. So difficult to trim those nails! She becomes fussy usually later in the afternoon into the evening but is a little angel most of the time otherwise. I am counting my blessings on that one. 

We are just soaking it all in. Our little one won't be so little far too soon.

  1. I love your weekly update, she is so incredibly precious! Tip on the fingernails, chew them off while nursing. It's so much easier. Blessings!
