It has been so interesting to see how much Nova has changed in a short 4 weeks. She is growing so fast! I’m sure I’ll be thinking that for the rest of her life but in this very moment, I’m holding on to every little piece of her that is her right now. Every moment that is special with her, passes so quickly.
  
As a parent, it’s scary to think about all the things I’ve already forgotten. All the moments that slipped through my fingers just after they were experienced. When I allow myself to think too much about it, panic rushes through my mind! She will never be this little again! Every inch she grows and every ounce she gains is extremely bitter-sweet. This is exactly why we need to live in the moment with our sweet babes. Stop worrying about the dirty dishes and the pile of laundry. When I think back on Nova’s babyhood, I want to remember the endless snuggles, giggles, kisses. I want to remember the view of her when I’m nursing. The other things I can get to later. Right now, I just want to stare at  my sweet baby!

about 13 pounds (has an appointment on Monday!) 

rolling from one end of the room to the other - she can’t be left alone!

HATES being in the car

discovered mommy’s face and loves to stare and touch mommy’s chin and lips

giggles so hard when daddy makes piggy noises!

started to sit up with support in her bumbo and boppy!

loves to look at the pictures on the books mommy and daddy read to her before bedtime

tried bananas and LOVES them! 

stops crying immediately when mommy sings “if you’re happy and you know it”


Every day I find myself learning something new about Nova. When I do, it hits me hard that she is her own person. My bond with her is so strong that I sometimes forget we are two separate people! But I love that. I feel so connected to her. It wasn’t always this way but now that it is, I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
