Dear Scarlet -- 1 month

Dear Scarlet,

Today you are one month old. In some ways this month has gone by fast and in other ways it has felt like forever since you were born. Everyday that goes by, you get more and more beautiful. Your father and I just adore you and we are so glad you are finally a part of our family.

Bella is trying to get used to you. She still smells you and wonders what in the world is going on. I'm quite positive you two will be best of friends some day.

In the last month, you have lived most of those days in the NICU, 27 to be exact. Kingston came and went. We had an amazing funeral for him. One day we will show it to you. You have grown quite a bit. You went from 3 pounds 12 ounces to 4 pounds 12 ounces. You have grown just over half an inch as well. You are still very petite, just the way I love it. You have been so fun to dress in the little tiny preemie clothes. Your headbands still don't fit because your head is just too small still. You love your baths. You have been so much fun already and I can't wait for all that is to come!

Scarlet, we love you to pieces!

Loves,

Mom

I can't believe it's been a month already! And on top of that you get to celebrate it with her at home. So happy! You and Ryan are going to be the most amazing parents ever. Happy one month!

I'm so glad Scarlet is home. She's still so tiny. You need to post a picture! Sounds like you are loving being a mom!

I know you are missing Kingston. His funeral was such a special experience...really touched the hearts of everyone there.
