Day 31 – One month old!

Unbelievably, one month has already passed since Jaia arrived. It’s been a month of amazing discoveries.

So far I’ve discovered that:

  • something that tiny really can turn me to mush.
  • I can function quite well on half the sleep I’m used to getting.
  • I thought I was a light sleeper before…and it only got worse.
  • it still surprises me what Dan can sleep through.
  • Jaia makes about a million hilarious faces every day.
  • baby farts are often as loud as grown-up farts.
  • babies do grow out of some of their cutest outfits before they have a chance to wear them.
  • a stolen moment to check my email or blog is usually cut to 30 seconds, when Jaia decides that she’s had about enough of that.
  • being ‘off’ work for a year doesn’t mean that you have free time.
  • time to myself now includes grabbing a quick shower, doing laundry or going to the bathroom.
  • nothing is cuter than baby footwear, except for a baby wearing the footwear (see below, Thanks Kris!).
  • without hesitation, it’s all worth it.

Alicia - Happy Monthiversary Baby Jai!!!

(Hope it’s ok if you are called Baby Jai, for some reason it just flows when I think of you. Kayleigh used to, and sometimes still does, call Tehya ‘Baby Teh’. Maybe that’s why?!)

Those are some fantastic boots!

I’m happy to hear you are keeping your momma on her toes.

Kel Parsons - Shan, I hope you’re keeping all of these priceless photos in a place where they’ll be _very easily accessible_ during her teen years. They’re GUARANTEED ammunition! “Awwwww . . . look how cute you were!” To be brought out and cooed over when she brings friends home.

Hey. You gotta start thinking of blackmail now. Trust me.

Diane Belanger - It is becomming a ritual to start my day by checking out your website. How can anyone have a bad day when one sees a picture of the cutest baby in those boots!

And not to mention that Jaia has the greatest Mom!
