One month old!

I don't really know what to say. There's so much to tell. We love her more and more every moment. (Yes, sadly...all the cliches are true!)

There is much joy: She is growing into her body more and more each day. Smiling is just around the corner. Her coos are heart-melting. Every time she looks at us, there's more of her looking back. She is starting to reach for things (spastically, but consciously). She is mimicking facial expressions. She is more alert and orientated when awake. She is growing denser and a bit longer. Her journey has just begun and it is just so amazing and such an honor to be witness.

The real magic and meditation is in the details of our lives, the moments that make up our current journey. We hope to write more soon. Just trying to keep up with photos and a couple videos (and the diapers - oye!).

It is definitely not all roses, of course. She has her monster moments. But overall, all is beautiful and wondrous.

I mean, how can you not love this! (see movie)
