One Month

Today Keziah is one month old! It is going by way too fast! It makes me sad that she can barely squeeze into the newborn size diapers anymore (but we're going to keep trying since we have so many to use up!). Even some of her first onesies and sleepers are getting put back in the clothing box because they no longer fit! I'm guessing she's close to the 10 lb mark but I haven't had her weighed in about a week and a half. I am glad, though, to see her growing because it assures me that she must be getting enough to eat!
I'm pretty sure she smiled for the first time the other day. It was a very "happy" look anyway. She did it once during the day when I was talking to her and then again for Erik when he came home from work. She hasn't done it since, but I think we're on the brink of smiling territory! I was trying to capture a smile in this collage of pictures -- no luck, but I got some other cute expressions in the meantime.

Yesterday I dressed Keziah up in this matching sweater and bonnet set that I received as a gift. Very pink and girly! As you can see, she's already taking after her big brother in the soother department. She's even holding up a protective hand to keep it from falling out!



<-- Keziah having some play time on the floor. She loves watching the fire - I remember this was a favourite with Micah as well. It's a nice way to give her some stimulating activity after eating.

That's Micah's foot in the edge of the picture - he loves to get right in Keziah's face when she's on the floor and I have to keep him from jumping on top of her. Keziah spends a lot more time in her bassinet than Micah ever did - mostly because I need to protect her from her over-zealous big brother!
So far we've had one close call. When I put Keziah in the swing Micah likes to "help" by giving her pushes. The other day as I was getting supper ready I saw him pushing her so hard that she almost flopped right out onto the floor. I ran over and stopped her limp little body just in time! Phew!

Now, to completely change the subject, I have to share the good news that Erik is almost done the house that he's been building since September! It has been a lo-o-o-ong project for them but they will finish either today or early next week! And the exciting news is that they signed two contracts this week to start building two more houses in the new year. So, things are starting to get rolling and Erik expects these next projects will be completed much faster. Very exciting! I will try to get him to take some pictures of the finished product.

What a doll. I think most of the weight has gone to her cheeks - she's changed already so much. It was really great to see all of you in mb - congrats on the house Erik! That's great you've got more lined up in the new year. Are you guys doing your own family thing on christmas eve? Sadie and I just got back from shopping - she's generally good company, but not the best shopping partner. For some reason, she prefers it if I push the empty stroller and hold her the whole time .I think I've earned a nap of my own and a trip to the chiropractor. Have a great Christmas!
