Our Remie girl turned one month old yesterday, four of the sweetest & fastest weeks of my life!
Third time around and I feel like I am embracing & enjoying the newborn stage more than ever before. I knew life with three with would be chaotic (and it is), but I reminded myself throughout my pregnancy of how fast it goes and also promised myself that once she was here, I would slow down and soak in this stage as much as I could. Our days are full of school drop-offs and dance class and homework and endless snacks and just so much going on — but there is always so much sweetness in between. I am determined to just hold her as much as possible, looking back on both of my big girls, that is the one thing I always just want one more chance to do again. It’s also soooo much easier to not worry about the small things like crying or schedules when you really do know that everything is just a phase and will change in the blink of an eye.
Little bits about our Remie Rue! She is the most alert newborn of all three of my girls, and has been from the day she was born four weeks ago. She makes such good eye contact already and even though I know babies are not supposed to smile until six weeks or older, we are positive that she has been giving us real, social smiles for a couple weeks now. Those smiles and sweet little baby sounds are just the best ever, I could just stare and listen to her all day long! She loves baths, music, watching her big sisters, and most of all, being held. A whole lot. It’s a good thing I was so determined to keep her close because she won’t have it any other way. So far, her temperament is laid-back until she isn’t — she definitely lets us know when she isn’t happy and doesn’t keep us guessing. 😉
Her profile reminds me of Avalon and when she is sleeping I see a lot of Waverly, but overall she really has her own look! Her hair is still dark but is starting to lighten up a bit, her eyes are bright blue, and she has a dark complexion — which is so funny, my friend joked that when I am out with her, I needed extra bronzer so people will believe she is mine!!
Remerie, four weeks in and I already cannot imagine a life without you. You are truly a dream come true and I pinch myself every single day that you are ours forever. Happiest one month, my love!
