Nora {One Month}

I will not even apologize for jumping on the month sticker train.
Just look at that squishy goodness!

It's been exactly one month since we met Nora June and what an exhausting, overwhelming, magical month it's been.

This first month has been a whirlwind. Spending my days with three kids has been hectic, but the good so outweighs the bad. Every evening when I look at the little boys piled on the couch next to me and the baby girl cradled in my husband's strong arms, I am in heaven. There is no way I can put into words the love I have for these people. My family is pretty amazing, y'all.

In honor of the first of many milestones, a list. Here are a few of-the-moment facts about my favorite little Bauer girl:

  • Her big, beautiful eyes are my favorites. They're still dark blue for now, but I'm betting they'll deepen to Nathan's light brown.
  • Nora likes to wear bows. And I like to buy bows. In fact, I may have a problem. {I'm officially stripped of my "boy mom" title.}
  • Although she was born petite, I don't think she's going to stay that way. I'm anxious to see what she weighs at her checkup next month, because newborn diapers are on their way out.
  • We've had to switch her formula to Gentlease because this girl is gassy! It's only been a few days, but hopefully we'll see results soon.
  • She goes by many names: Nori, Nori Boo, Little Chicken, Sister, Sis, Nora Borealis, and Big-Eyed Tuna {thanks, Jonathan}.
  • Nora is a spit-up volcano. I even had to pause this post because she erupted. I'm talking change every article of clothes and wipe digested formula from my forehead. My FOREHEAD.
  • I still love this little girl with all my heart despite that last fact.

PS: I can't have a a one-kid photo shoot without another horning in. As I laid Nora down for a diaper change, Owen hopped into the rocker and shouted "MY TURN!" Who would I be to put the camera down? Also, doesn't he look just like my brother here?! Score One for the Montgomery family:

Happy Thursday, gang!
