One Month

I made June a blog and I am so excited about it! They are little notes to her so that I can document things that happen in her life and as she is growing up. I'm hoping I stick with it so that when she is old enough I can print it in a book and give it to her. I Just love her so much. If you would like to see her progression feel free to read it here. There will be things that I duplicate on her blog and our family blog, just giving you a warning.

Dear June,
Today you are one month old. I can't believe how much you have grown and how much I love being your mother. You are such a good baby that makes things very easy on me. I guess I expected the worst, but you have made me love being a mother.
You look just like your dad. Your a Lancaster for sure, though I am hoping as you grow older some of me comes out in you. I joke with people saying its a good thing you came out of me or I would wonder if you were my child.
You're such a great little sleeper and you eat like a champ. That's a very good thing! I think you have figured out your days and nights, which I am very thankful for. You hate any pacifier that we give you, and we have tried every kind. It would be nice sometimes if you took one but I guess it's one less habit we will have to break. For the most part you do a pretty good job at soothing yourself. Again MOST of the time. :)
When waking up you grunt and move around, you don't cry, but when your really mad you scream a very high pitched scream. I think it's adorable. Your puppy Range adores you. He is so protective over you and doesn't leave your side. He is always bringing you his toys to play with him, and rolls on top of you when you start kicking your legs. Don't worry we are working on that!!
OH you are so beautiful and I love that you are mine. This month has been so fun hanging out with you and laughing at the smallest things that you do, and people only tell me it gets better. I am very excited to start taking you out more and show off those chubby cheeks of yours.
June I love you so much. Your Dad loves you so much and he works so hard to provide for you. He would do anything for you. You seem so much more content when laying in his arms, maybe its because there is more cushion, not sure, but he loves you so much.
I love you.
Love Mom.

We are literally OBSESSED with June. I feel like I don't get anything done during the day because I just stare at her and still try to contemplate the fact that she is my daughter. I just love her. My friend Mary explained it pretty good, that you love your child so much, your heart is going to explode. I seriously feel my heart is going to burst out of my chest!! It is the most amazing feeling. I don't know how else to explain it. Yes, I am tired, Yes I worry constantly about every little noise, sneeze, or cough, I get up a hundred times a night to make sure she is still breathing, but it is all SO WORTH IT. I think of how long it took Dan and I to bring her here, and it makes me so grateful to hear that bloody Murder scream she uses instead of a cry, or how feedings, and changing diapers has become my new pastime. I LOVE IT ALL. I am aware it has only been two weeks, and I know there will be MANY tough times ahead with this little squirt, but for now I am enjoying being a mother who is obsessed with her daughter.

I made a little slideshow thing of June's adventure getting here. There are some of the same pictures from my last post but I thought I would share it anyways.
