I'm just really on a roll with getting these updates out on time, aren't I?! I love past me who always said she would work on these a week ahead of time so she could post them right on Indy's month mark. She was cute. She was naive to what life with two under is truly like! ;) 

Life has actually been really wonderful with the girls. Indy has already changed so much this last month and I'm having a little bit of a hard time with it. It's bittersweet watching my babies get bigger. Ultimately though, it's more sweet. Indy is smiling SO much and even does little gurgles that sound like she laughing! It's the absolute cutest thing ever! First thing in the morning when I take her swaddle off, she smiles SO big. It makes my heart so happy and really does bring just the sweetest spirit into our home. 

Little Indy is still a tiny thing but she eats like a champ and we are still breastfeeding! I kind of can't believe that our journey has been going so well. It was such a disaster with Nova that I half expected that to happen again with Indy but I am so grateful it hasn't! She jumped from the 18th percentile to the 25th so we are super happy about that! Her pediatrician is a huge advocate for breastfeeding so it's been extra nice having that support and encouragement to keep going. Plus, I really love having my baby so close to me! 

 loves to listen to soothing music, like mozart or bach

 still sleeping really well with only one or two feedings at night!

 does not enjoy when mama walks away for too long

⋒ absolutely loves it when we talk to her and smile at her

⋒ doesn't mind her carseat, she falls asleep on most car rides

⋒ can roll from belly to back

⋒ doesn't cry often but when she does, she cries loud

⋒ loves when she's propped up so she can look around!

I can already tell that Indy is going to be a peacemaker in our family. She just loves to smile and be happy. I love that about her spirit! It is so pure and innocent - something we could all use a little more of. I am also so grateful for what Indy has done for our family. She's made me a girl mama (for now!), Nova a big sister and daddy's heart has grown so much bigger having all these girls around! We are so fortunate and love having our little rainbow baby around to remind us the beauty in life. Newborns are something special.
