Poppy at One Month

Little Poppy turned one month on Friday. I can't believe she's been here for a whole month! In some ways, the time has flown by and in other ways, I can't believe it's only been a month. It feels like she's been a part of our family forever. I feel like I've known her for a long time. It's been wonderful to get to know her this month! 

Poppy is wearing size 0-3 months in clothes. From what I can tell on the scale, she weighs somewhere between 9.5-10 pounds. Her face is fuller and she's definitely longer than when we brought her home from the hospital. 

She's not much of a crier, but she can whine with the best of them. When she's awake, she needs to have a view of one of us or she gets very upset. She likes her brother to lean over her little bed and talk to her. At night, she likes to be swaddled and absolutely must have white noise playing. She usually sleeps for four-five hour stretch, and then will be up about every hour and a half until morning. My favorite time with her is right when Rhett goes to bed. She seems to sense that the toddler-tornado is contained and will wake up to snuggle and look up at me. I sing her songs from my favorite movies and she's given me a few legitimate smiles during these times. 

Her eyes are still a lovely shade of blue. Her hair seems to be getting a bit thicker, which has given me hope that it will stick around (whether or not it remains dark is yet to be seen). I know I say it all the time, but she is such a good, sweet little baby. We can't wait to see what God has in store for her this year!
