It breaks my heart that Finley is already one month old. It's scary how quickly the time has gone by! Everything about Finley has been so different than Grady. It's almost as if we are first time parents. From bringing her home from the hospital when I was released to just watching all that she has been doing during her first month. We are amazed at what she has been doing as while it is probably typical of newborn babies, we are just experiencing it for the first time with Finely.
Everyone is so curious to know how Grady has been adjusting and he has been better than I could have ever hoped for. He is in love with his baby sister. He is constantly running over to give her kisses. He is concerned when she cries (he will go to David or myself and point to Finley and "tell" us that something is wrong) and likes to stroke her head.
We feel so blessed to have this perfect little baby! I only wish that I could shellack her and keep her tiny for longer because boy is she growing quickly!
