Gemma is one month old!

Here's my little lady. She's getting so big, seriously where did the last 30 days go?! Time is no friend of mine that's for sure. Let's see if I can remember a few things that have happened in the last month:

-Gemma is a rockstar at breastfeeding but not so much at sleeping. If she had her way she would eat around the clock FOREVER! When she does finally nod off she'll only stay sleeping if she's beside us in our bed. (I kinda love that!)
-She loves bath time and even sleeps happily through most of it. Go figure!
-She's started smiling little by little and giving me solid eye contact which melts my heart everytime.
-Gemma speaks in a series of loud grunts. Funniest thing you ever heard, that is unless you are Vince and trying to sleep cause you have to wake up at 5:45 to drive to Sarnia for work and your daughter won't stop loudly insanely grunting through her 3am feeding!

Every day I wake up she looks even more grown up than a few hours ago, apparently this girl has places to go and people to see, move out of the way folks, my girl is on the move!

Love and Hugs
