Wow, my precious little girl is already a month old. Is that even possible that this first month of her life has so quickly passed us? It's so weird because it seems like she has always, always been a part of our family and I can't really even remember life before Adrienne.
Adrienne has made two very important milestones over these last 24 hours, seeing as how it is her one-month birthday and all! Last night she slept through the night for the first time! It was heavenly for me, let me just say! She ate around 11 last night and when I put her in her cradle, she was out until after 7 this morning. Unbelievable! I had to check the clock several times to make sure that I had read it correctly! Let's hope that this is a new trend that she's starting? A girl can dream, right?!?!? As for the other milestone, Adrienne smiled at me TWICE today. They weren't gassy, fake smiles either... They were the real deal and they made me feel all warm inside. I was so happy to see those precious smiles for the first time!!
Having Adrienne here has really amazed me in so many ways. For starters, I cannot believe how much I love her. I knew that I would love her, but it was always a bit hard for me to think about how I could ever love someone as much as I loved Brooke. From the moment I met Adrienne I suddenly knew that I would always have enough love for both of my girls and I have never looked back. I'm also amazed at how watching a new life grow just never gets old. I wondered if milestones like we had today would be as exciting as they were with Brooke, and they absolutely are! Watching these kids blossom before my very eyes could never get old or lose its sentiment.
I am anxious to get to know Adrienne better. Right now I'm not quite sure what some of her cries mean or what makes her "tick." Each evening she has a meltdown and screams hysterically for sometimes over an hour and I still haven't mastered how to bring her out of these fits. I can't wait for the day that I'll be able to read her better and become more aware of what her cues mean. These are all things you learn in time though!
I am so content with my life right now! I love my daughters so much and being their mommy is such a huge honor!
