I can't believe my little newbie is a whole month old today!
She has changed so much already! Her face has really filled out and she has lost a bit of her hair. Chunky, bald baby = she's starting to look more like me. She is also becoming increasingly alert. She is so expressive and has a huge, gummy smile—still trying to capture a good picture of it.
UPDATE: We are now in Austin! All of you were right, by the way. Flying with a newborn was no problem at all. She slept almost the ENTIRE time—like from the moment we left the house, the drive to Salt Lake, all the hullabaloo at the airport, the flight to Denver, waiting for our connection, boarding our second flight, and about thirty minutes short of arriving in Texas—She slept through ALL OF THAT. It was pretty miraculous. I'm still in awe.
We are still getting acquainted with a new city/living space, but so far we are liking it. This place has a lot of character, and I think it will be a good fit for us. More updates to come!*
*hopefully. turns out being this little newb's mommy is busy busy work. typing with one hand as we speak...
