Nora is One Month Old!

posted by Andrea | 12/22/2011

apparently she’s super excited to be one month old!

I can’t believe our little Nora is already one month old. I only wish someone would have warned me about how fast this time goes!! {yes, that’s a joke — we’ve been told that at least 326 times!}

This past month has been pretty crazy — mostly because we’ve never had such a lack of scheduling around here before. Nora is the new boss and whatever she “says” goes, even if it’s totally inconvenient for us :)

just a few hours old… so sweet! 

Having a newborn is honestly SO much more work than I ever thought it would be — and I think Nora is actually a pretty good baby too. I just keep thinking about how overwhelmed I feel… and then I wonder how a teen mom could ever handle having a baby!

I’m definitely learning to live on a lot less sleep, have a lot more patience, and “fly by the seat of my pants” — NO, I’m not good at any of them yet!

all bundled up for our first walk — with one tired mama! 

I’ve worn many hats in my life and had many different jobs, but my new “mom” hat/job probably came with the steepest learning curve!

Good thing I’m a fast learner :)

Anyway, Dave and I are looking forward to our first Christmas as a family, many more great memories… and hopefully a little more sleep in the weeks and months to come.

Here are a couple more pictures from our “photo-shoot” this morning. I’m hoping to do one of these each month — but we’ll see! 

 

“Who me? It’s MY birthday today?”

ok, I guess I’ll give you a little smile!

 

Happy one month birthday Nora!

    Nora is so cute! I hear ya on the lack of sleep, it’s hard to function sometimes when we’re so exhausted. You’re doing great!

    What a cute baby! And she looks like her mama!

    I LOVE your blog — thanks so much for writing so faithfully. The content is fabulous.

    I was just like you prior to kids — organized, driven, busy, etc… — and I still am those things, but it is so different now with kids. I have to work so incredibly hard to keep up with everything. But you’ll find your stride, and each month is easier than the one before it. You are exactly right though — it is a steep learning curve.

    Merry Christmas!

    She’s super cute and looks like she already has so much personality!

    I completely understand about all the adjustments on your part and how hard it is. When my oldest was born I told my husband that mothering was the fullest full time job I’d ever had!

    Hope you and your little family have the merriest Christmas yet!

    L-O-V-E the pictures of your cutie-pie. You & Nora are both adorable. Keep the baby posts coming. Merry Christmas to you & yours. And once again–I am very happy anytime I see a post in my inbox from your blog. It’s a wonderful break to take at work with my coca-cola or hot chocolate. Renea.

    She is so cute and I know that you are doing a great job as her Mommy! Something that I did each month, was to take my little guy’s photo with a large stuffed animal – then you can see how they grow in comparison to the animal. I still take a photo of them with the animal at each new year! :)
