One Month!

We are here~! I haven't given up blogging but definitely went on an unexpected hiatus! I thought about the blog all of the time and everything I wanted to write, record and remember. The more days I let pass the more overwhelming it was to think about catching up so guess what... it didn't happen. So I am going to start from now and cut myself some slack :)

I can tell you one thing... Chandler is already one month! In some ways it seems like just yesterday I was going into the hospital and in other ways I felt like she has been here a lifetime.

She is SO sweet and completes our family even more but let me tell you at bedtime she is a force to be reckoned with! Currently our shower is running and she is screaming in the room with daddy. We rotate shifts because there is only so much screaming one can take :) Our water bill will undoubtedly be raised about 75% because that seems to be the only way she will stop crying is to be in the bathroom with the shower running???

She is eating like crazy! Chandler takes about 4 oz every 3 hours during the day and will go a little longer stretches at night. We actually had a few nights where she slept for 7 hours at a time. Generally right after dinner is when "it hits the fan" haha We have switched formula 3 times, are on zantac and just trying every different technique that we have learned over the years. I am much more laid back this time around and even though the non stop crying is frustrating at times I realize that this too shall pass and nothing lasts forever. I do still love the newborn stage and their little bodies and kissing their soft cheeks, it is just priceless.

Adjusting to being out numbered at times has kicked our booties. I still can't find enough hours in the day to get everything done (laundry especially). It seems I feel like we have always neglected at least one child each night! haha but for the most part we are learning our way thru it and our lives are much richer with Chandler in them! She is so snugly and I steal as many kisses and as many quiet moments as I can with her.

I look at her and am so blessed to be able to do this again, to relive these moments and make more memories and grow our family! Happy 1 Month Chandler Grace!
