We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become each day.

1 month!

Can you believe it has been a whole month since Milly joined our family??  I can't and every day that passes makes me sad...I really want this girl to take her time growing up.  I'm trying to enjoy her even with all the chaos around here.  In case you haven't heard, we are moving to Arizona on May 14th.  Danny got a new position at Intel in Chandler so we are off to the heat.  Anyway, this post is about my little Milly.  Here are a few pictures to celebrate her 1 month (plus a few days, but who's keeping track?)

Her brothers just adore her as you can see.

At 1 month, Milly is still pretty content and such a sweet baby.  She is almost 9 pounds (I just held her to weigh her this am) and is still sleeping well at night...one night she even slept for 6 hours.  That hasn't happened again, but she sleeps consistently for 3-4 hours at a time.  Hey, I'll take it. 
She's starting to chunk up a little bit and she even smiled at me this morning a few times and I think they were real and intentional!
I just love watching the kids with Milly, they are so gentle and they just love her.  Every morning when we wake up, they all yell at once "Can I hold her?"  Every time she wears a new outfit Dylan will say, "She looks so pretty in that."  He is also known to use the word "adorable" on occasion as well.  He's just too cute!  Grace, of course, loves being a little mommy and is such a great mother's helper.  Jesse takes a more low key approach, but loves to hold her and is also a good helper when needed.  James also fights for his turn to hold her and won't give her up until she starts crying...then you have to be right there because when he's done, he's done and he just pushes her off of him!
We still can't get enough of our Milly-Girl.

Oh, I want to hold her too! She makes me want to have another one. Ok, I can probably wait a little longer. We don't have any insurance! :) Where did that month go??? I am excited to hear you are going to AZ! We will be there the end of June for my nephew's baptism, so we will get in tough with you!
