One Month Old! - Rebekah Nyakairu

One Month Old!

IMG_1125

Dear baby girl,

You put a whole new meaning into Labor Day Weekend! Labor day weekend was a long weekend full of contractions and labor pains. I went into labor Friday afternoon and you were born Sunday morning. You were worth it all.

You knew the perfect time to come. I had just finished up my teacher work week as your grandparents arrived in Boston. Your Grandma said  “Gracie, you can come now. We’re here.” And that afternoon, I started having contractions. Your grandparents were excited to meet you!

One of my biggest life accomplishments is giving birth to you. I cannot begin to describe what an incredible moment it was when the nurse laid you on my chest for the first time. I got my first look at my little tiny baby girl. Words can’t capture that special moment.

I love you baby girl!

Dan, Jen, Luke and Daniel came to visit you the day you were born!

Micah, Jannat, and Jonah came for a visit!

The past month has been exhausting and challenging for your Mommy and Daddy. We didn’t know that you were tongue tied which made breastfeeding difficult, challenging, and painful. You have also been very colicky. Daddy has looked up every possible way to help with colic. He even gave you a little baby massage yesterday. But it has all been worth it when we look at your precious, adorable little face.

You have grown so much in the past month. You have gone for this little fragile newborn to a healthy growing baby girl. At your one month check up you weighed 9 lbs and were 21.75 inches long.

Your doctors take good care of you!

We love taking you out and showing you off! We haven’t used a stroller yet with you because we love carrying you close to us. I wrap you up in the baby K’tan and Daddy uses his Ergobaby Carrier. It doesn’t matter where we are…  people always admire how beautiful and alert you are. You fix your big eyes on whoever is holding you or talking to you.

I enjoy taking walks with you. You are all snuggled up in the K’tan, close to mommy’s heart. You look up at me as I talk with you and we enjoy the beautiful fall day until you fall asleep. One of Mommy and Daddy’s favorite moments of the day is praying over you at bedtime.

Bathtime!

You were one day old when you had your first bath at the hospital. You cried the entire time. Thankfully you now like bathtime!
